This is a lovely site on the Gower penisullar. On arrival staff are friendly and helpful and having booked a pitch with electricity you can then pretty much choose which vacant spot you want. The motorhome/caravan field was busy but space was reasonable. It is on a hill so will need levellers but was not a problem. We stayed on the top of the field and the view of the bay was fantastic. Facilities on site were very clean and well maintained. There had been quite a bit of rain so understandably the floor did get a bit muddy but overall there was no real problem. The showers were brill and were a lovely temperature (I like a very hot shower and generally camp site showers only have one temperature) so it was wonderful to have good temperature showers that also don't need to be constantly restarted. The design of the shower/toilet cubicles meant that there was no bench or somewhere to sit. Even the loo didn't have a lid that could be put down to sit on. So it is sit on the loo or balance when putting my pyjama trousers on. There is a cafe on site which I didn't try which also has a small shop which stocks essentials. If you are looking for a site with lots of amenities this is not the site for you but if you want a quite, friendly clean site then I would definitely recommend. Anyone who knows the Gower knows it is a beautiful away from it all area. The site is a walk away from the beach which is clean, long and dog friendly. It is a bit of a pull back up to the site but we are active so was no problem to us. The use of a car would be useful (we don't) but there was a bus service with the bus stop virtually on the doorstep of the campsite. We didn't use because we were only away for a short break but getting shopping may have been a bit if challenge for a longer stay. There is a lovely hotel -oxwich Bay a walk away where we had a lovely lunch. There is amazing walks in the area. Overall this was a really good campsite for anyone who likes walking, being in a fantastic part of the country and has dogs. It would also be good for children who enjoy the outdoors.

The facilities and location are superb. The new toilet block is of particular note and the staff keep it in good order. The cafe /shop were convenient as is the superb beach only about 15mins walk away. We initially booked for three nights but stayed for six. Nuff said! Absolutely superb!

We arrived to a very friendly welcome from the check in lady. She told us where to go and pick our own pitch. A lot of the pitches have been levelled out in the middle of the shop field. Perfect for our needs. The pitch we chose took our huge Vermont LP and the car, (Kia Sedona, Huge for all our gear) with no problem. Everywhere was clean and no litter or debris anywhere. The toilets and shower block are the cleanest I've seen on a camp site. Underfloor heating and sensor showers. Fabulous. No pressing silly buttons every 30 seconds! All the fields were well kept. The small shop had the basics and were not overly priced like some places. The cafe was like a truckers diner. But it was clean, no smells ( except the lovely campers breakfast smell). They did a lunch menu and pizza as well. We sampled a few different things and they were all fresh and tasty.

The walk to the beach through the woods took 15 minutes, mainly downhill and over the sand dunes. Great clean beach. At the end was a small shop/cafe and a restaurant. You need to be Rockafeller to eat there though. The hotel did meals and you can take your dog into the conservatory. We found it easier to drive the 5 minutes to get to that end, as I'm disabled and pay the 3 for car parking. The walk back to the camp over the dunes and through the woods takes longer due to being uphill most of the way. I managed it, though it took me 1/2 hour to do it. Thank God for the wine in the tent! There was a broken hose on the drinking water tap which I reported to reception. When I went down not long after, it was sorted. Customer Service at this place is the best I've come across. They must send them on a happy course, because all the staff were smiling and looked happy in their jobs. I will definitely be returning here as it's THE best site I've been on. Thank you for a great holiday. See you soon.

After 6hrs on the road a very warm welcome by staff after booking in and given barrier key was given free breakfasts voucher for in the morning, we were shown pitches in main field we could have, wife chose the one next to shower block. What a shower block 6mini ensuit only lacked toilet lid, (somewhere to put cloths on whilst in shower) washing up, laundry and more toilets plus fridge for food storage and freezer for ice blocks and frozen food, all under one roof, 6 sinks hot water 24_7 always clean. Shop was basic cafe part had all you would really wanted. Walk down to beach not too bad better to drive down to oxwich bay 4. 50 parking Swansea 20min drive away all the shops you could need plus.

Would go back shorter stay next time.

What a well run and friendly campsite. From the moment we arrived we felt like valued customers and old friends even though this was our first visit. Two camping fields with some electric hook ups (book these in advance) and one caravan field. The camping fields are sloping with some level pitches. The toilet and shower blocks are modern and very clean as were the dish washing facilities. There are large chest freezers, large fridges and mobile phone charging points. The field we were camping in had great views but some campers may find the walk to the toilets from here a bit far for comfort. There is a small but well stocked shop and a cafe that serves great breakfasts, pizzas etc. There is no bar or evening entertainment on the campsite but as we came to relax and get away from it all this didn't bother us.

The walk to the sandy beach is about 10 minutes downhill through woods but is well worth it. We walked to Oxwich along the beach which took us about an hour and had the most delicious meal at the hotel which is family friendly. It is also an easy car drive to here and there are toilets on the beach. There is a small cafe on the beach although we found the service here excruciatingly slow.

We are already looking forward to returning to the campsite to further explore the area.

Firstly, the facilities were excellent. Never any queues, even when the campsite was full and always clean. The beach, which is walking distance, is perfect. One of our favourite beaches of all time. The entrance to the park is a narrow country lane which is steep at the top, this is not a problem until you want to leave, and then just make sure you are careful pulling out of the junction as it's steep and visibility isn't great. Most people have someone jump out to help with traffic, or the staff are more than willing to help. Don't let that put you off though, as we got out fine and we have a very heavy caravan! The staff are all lovely. We were at the end of the season so missed the pick your own, but my parents had been earlier in the year and this was a lovely bonus on the doorstep! The surrounding area is beautiful but we were more than happy just sitting on our pitch looking at the beach view or walking on the beach. Such a lovely location. Can be windy as you are up high but that wasn't an issue other than when a storm hit unexpectedly and awnings had to be taken down in a rush! All the staff were out to help though which was lovely and gave everyone a talking point the next day! All in all, can't wait to go back!
