This is a popular and busy site, where camping is in 4 fields, which are separated into families, couples, young people.

We camped here for 3 nights. We would have stayed longer but it rained and rained!

What we liked.

The site is next to the beach (sandy but windy too).

There are lots of easy and picturesque walks, which were suitable for our 5 year old.

The site is very well maintained-litter free and had consistently super clean showers and toilet. I never had to wait for the shower.

The staff are friendly and there is a very well stocked shop.

There is a cafe on site, good for lunch or an early supper.

Downside the cafe closed at 5:45pm, it would have been a nice place to sit and drink wine later.

It was a bit of a walk to the showers but as they were so clean who can complain about that!

Would be even better if they froze your ice packs for cool boxes.

Great site with everything you need. Focus is on surfing and not much else.

Clean tidy facilities. Cant fault them.

Take away and cafe provide good quality well priced food. Shop stocks all you need, but no surprise it was a little more expensive than Tescos.

Big plus for my family was no dogs.

I will be visiting again.

I have been coming here for almost 40 years, it is a little piece of paradise. In the early years it represented a perfect site - limited facilities and an anything goes attitude from the staff. It was a surfers site through and through.

Over the years the site has matured, as have we. And each time new (and always top quality) facilities are added we mourn the loss of this 'true' campsite, however having visited again last weekend it actually feels great, the staff friendly, the atmosphere still fabulous. It still works despite the mod cons.

Please note - This is a campsite providing sleeping accommodation for surfers and sports people, who will probably want to party after a hard day in the surf, if you are offended by the noise of young people having fun into the early hours then please go somewhere else, and help to keep this place very very special. I am too old to party with the kids, but the sound of their fun reinforces my faith in the youth of today.

All the facilities have been covered by the reviews below - shop and restaurant excellent, shower block clean, hot water plentiful(but was busy - think they're building another)

The site has everything you need, but only 5 hook ups. The setting is amazing, the staff laid back.

A great walk is to the Worm's head along the beach and you might see the seals basking at low tide. The beach is great for surfers and body boarders - the same break in Croyde or Saunton in Devon or Newquay in Cornwall would be heaving - here you've got your own spot.

Tell only your friends. It's that good. And do get there early, but then again I love these 'just rock up' sites!

Reviewer: Cmoncymru 3 reviews from this member

Stayed for 3 nights,great site,we stayed in the family field (we are a married couple in our 50's) very quiet site. Great shower blocks & toilets, always clean, shop was small but good, didn't overcharge on anything, didn't use cafeteria but it seemed good.

Short walk through the dunes to a fantastic beach and enjoyed watching the surfers. Found the staff helpful & friendly especially Lee, who advised us on good pubs to eat at (and where not too) - The Kings head in Llangennith wasn't great but the worms head hotel was really good with fantastic views outside !

Recommended site they have invested a lot in shower block and amenities for site.

Split into approx three areas for camping & mobile home / camping vans.

Familys - field three

Young or single groups - field one & two

Field four was booked for private group

The site was perfect for all age groups.

Excellent access to one of the best beaches in the area.

Not to be missed one of the best areas for all age groups and sports

Over the weekend it amazing surfers paradise, including in the area were some of the most spectacular views

Over the weekend we saw paragliding, over five hobbists were using the air currents from the cliff / hill side and kite sports and surf boarding was very good in the area it was not overcrowded at all.

The staff were really helpful and could not do enough explaining and offering advice on services and amenities at the site.

Perfect to get away from it all a site we will return and return again.
