Reviewer: Blueacer 1 review from this member

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.

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.

Reviewer: GLawes 1 review from this member

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!
