Pentre is surrounded by wild and rugged mountain scenery, rising up from the more gentle, lush terrain of the Tawe Valley. The mountains and the river valley both provide a habitat which enables wildlife to thrive in abundance.
The area is noted for wild salmon and trout, which populate its rivers and for magnificent birds of prey, including the rare Red Kite.
In the mid eighteen hundreds many miners and quarrymen worked on the Cribarth Mountain providing the local steel industries with limestone and silica sand, which were used in the smelting process and for making furnace bricks. Evidence of the old workings, tramways and inclined planes used to transport the stone down the mountain, can still be found. At Pant-y-Ffyrch lie the ruins of an old Drovers Inn, where a groom was murdered after a game of cards and his skeleton was only found thirty years later.
Pentre is surrounded by lovely countryside and lots of fun activities and attractions including castles, country parks, adventure centres, golf courses, hiking, climbing, canoeing and the lovely beaches of Swansea Bay, Mumbles & Gower.
