This site has everything you could wish for. Excellent facilities and located in a beautiful part of the country.

We stayed over for a few days and all was fine until the Friday evening. The site rapidly filled up and at one point people were almost coming to blows in their haste to grab a pitch. Suggest this is marshalled at busy times.

On the fact sheet you are given it mentions keeping noise to a minimum after 2200. The areas would also be patrolled by security. Well at 0100 there were several parties making a fair old racket with no sign of them being told to shut it. Bottom of field one and two.

The site has a close location to the beach and sand dunes. Obviously when the weather is fine people head to the dunes to barbecue and have a few beers. Unfortunately these clowns are too lazy to bring empties back with them. In some dunes old barbecues are left and bottles broken. Lethal if the sand gets blown over them and you think the sand is clear.

Either some signs going to the beach about litter would be appropriate or someone from the campsite has a clear up in the morning.

Sorry to have more negatives than positives. However it would take very little effort to put these right.

Wow what a location for a campsite ! Stunning !

We actually found this place by mistake ! (Turned up at our pre-booked caravan club site too early & got turned away -(surprise surprise) so we decided to have a drive around the Gower) driving a large Motorhome the roads got narrower & narrower with no place to turn around when we suddenly came over the brow of the hill and saw this site ! The dunes ! The beach ! The sea ! Heaven !

The site has very good large & clean toilet / showers a laundry and a shop & cafe on site

There are 4 camping fields and a small section with 6 electric hookups should you need it

Just a short walk over the dunes and your on one of the cleanest large beaches in the uk ! We did manage to pick up a TV signal but no phone signal bliss ! Well recommended

Just back from our first stay at Hill End campsite. Enjoyed three nights here, and can't wait to return. We were two Moms with two teenagers and an eight year old, staying in two tents which we pitched side by side on field 4. Very friendly staff and fellow campers, shower block and toilets clean and never had to queue despite campsite being full. Excellent washing up areas with constant hot water. Eddy's Diner was great, lovely views and excellent food, served until 7. 00pm and takeaway open later. Fantastic location, views of the sand dunes, and surrounding hills, glorious sunsets over the sea. As previous reviewers have said, it was very windy at night, but when you camp so close to the sea that always seems to be the case. Felt very safe on the site, we all loved it!

We just stayed for two nights as our first family camping trip and had a lovely time.

It was a great site for families and our children (3 and 5) spent a long time in the fantastic wooden play park. It was quiet at night in spite of large numbers of people.

The cafe was great and a life saver to feed the children when we arrived. It has fantastic views. The food was reasonable but it does close at 6pm which is a shame.

The showers and toilets were quite a walk from our pitch but were plentiful and always clean in spite of the site being very busy.

Our only downside was that there had been quite a lot of rain before our arrival and the family area in the lower two fields where we were told to pitch was waterlogged. However, I think this was unusual as it had dried out considerably by the time we left.

If we were in the area we would definitely go back again.

Been going to this site for 15 years.

2 Family and 2 Couples Fields (No pre Bookings Taken). Recently had approx 6 Hook Ups added for Motorhomes I believe they are 5. 00 a Day. If you have a really big motorhome the entrance road for the last 100m or so is a little tight.

Really close to the Beach, Lots to Walk, Surf See and Do. Kids Play area with wooden climbing frames.

Facilities really tidy but can get busy at peak season, Washing machines and Dryers behind restaurant.

Nice restaurant with sea View only problem here is it closes early 18:00 approx, Nearest Pub is up the road, Shop on site that sells good selection of food and Toys & Beer. Enjoy.

Gelert Rocky 4 man & Outwell Jersey 2 man tent

We were looking for a site and just drove to the end of the Gower and spotted fields full of tents - Hillend.

They don't take bookings and the whole site has a very free spirit about it, easy going and all in it together. Families in one field and the rest in the others.

Just pick a spot and pitch your tent - simple yes? Not at the end of the Gower. The wind was relentless and we ended up having to use our windbreaks and car just to give the tents a reprieve.

The toilets and showers were plentiful and clean and the on site restaurant was good value and very welcome shelter on our 1st evening.

The beach is beautiful, enormous and the kids had great fun in the massive dunes, but as all the windsurfers and kite surfers reminded us they were here for one thing - the wind.

A lovely site, great value and in a beautiful part of the world and if you could guarantee a windless week we would go back.
