 Fantastic site, fantastic owners, fantastic holiday.

The site is small and friendly, with a spectacular view over the Bristol channel to North Devon.

Kate and family couldn't have done more to ensure peoples holidays were relaxed and hassle free.

The loos were always clean and well stocked with loo roll.

The surrounding area is beautiful, with lot's of sandy bays and interesting walks.

We really can't wait to go again next year.

 Great spot - view of headland and sea from tent porch, 5 mins to lovely beach - and excellent - if basic - value for money.
Veggies can try the sausage, mash and gravy at Oxwich Hotel - also value at £20 for three (with 2 side dishes!)
Portaloos do smell ! And the slope needs a bit of adjusting too, but for 3 nights in good weather we had a great time !

 Brilliant! We did not want to come home, and nearly did`nt as our van would not start, but Kate provided us with free recovery, and jump started our van (shame).  Lovely quiet site with clean basic facilities and fantastic views.  The field is slightly sloping which we were concerned about at first, but not a problem if you have levelling equipment, and there are tractors if you get stuck, which we did`nt as the field is well drained. Chemical disposal point at the farm with hosepipe.  The TV reception is superb. Bus stop 5 minute walk away with and offering a  Gower Explorer rover ticket. Oxwich is about a moderate 15 minute walk with a basic shop that provides most things.  The beach is a short walk down the coastal path past the farm and is well worth the walk back up the hill, we were the only people on there, good rock pools and waves and great sandcastle potential. Fantastic quiet site with relaxed attitude and lovely owners, could not ask for more. See you soon.

 Just brilliant if your looking for peace, beautiful  scenery  , early nights and the best dog friendly site this is for you.
Kate and family made our stay stress free and always found time to talk about places to visit and life on the Gower
Slade bay  is sandy and safe but  very difficult to access for  anyone with a disability . 
Oxwich bay is just under a mile from the site by road , and if your feeling energetic you can take the coastal path back , the views are stunning and excellent for bird watching look out for the stonechats and Kestrel's as you walk.
Could go on for hours singing the praises of this lovely site, will be back many times thanks again  to Kate and family.

Reviewer: Harriejc 1 review from this member

 My family and I, (2 adults and 2 kids aged 6 & 9) spent just the two nights here and would have liked to have spent longer.
We would highly recommend the place for those who like their camping to be 'no frills'. As mentioned before there is a single tap in the field for washing and drinking water and three portaloos, which were reasonably clean and well stocked with loo roll and air-freshener.
Kate was an absolute joy, a very friendly and helpful person who took a personal interest in our holiday. She let our youngest have a ride on her quad bike with her and her kids whilst she collected the rubbish in the morning, and even lent us some tent pegs as we had forgotten ours as it was the first trip of the season - rookie mistake!
The site is basically a small field overlooking the sea, fantastic views across to Port Eynon and with a very lovely beach about a 10 min walk away.  The walk down to the coast path is fine but getting on to the beach from the coast path with very small children - say under 3 years - would be tricky as the path is quite steep. You definitely would not get a pushchair down there.
The camping field is small and slightly sloped and could be a problem with access or more importantly getting out if it was wet. We enjoyed glorious sunshine though and had no problem.
As the site is so small it has an instant community feel which was helped by the possibility of campfires using a special drum. This was a real plus point for us as our kids were desperate to toast marshmallows whilst sitting round a campfire.
I would recommend walking down to the local beach to pick up some driftwood and remember to pack a few firelighters when you go to make the most of this rare feature.
All in all a fantastic back to basics site with a fantastic hostess - we'll be back again.

 A single night was spent here on a trip which was just a night away.

The pre-arrival communication was helpful and friendly, ensuring confidence in the place when we arrived. The field, whilst basic, has a running tap and port-a-loos so served our needs fine. We were lucky in being the only ones there so had the field to ourselves, I can imagine if more than around 8 tents were there it could feel crowded.

That said, the selling point (apart from dirt cheap price) is the outstanding view from the field. There was something very special about falling asleep with the sound of the sea clear and loud, but not intruding.

Things outside campsite owners control, such as local bus routes, mean you need patience in travelling there under own steam. But it is perfectly possible and (even on the long bus journey) the views are worth the slow meandering route.

Definitely one to consider if simple camping and wonderful views are your idea of fun .

Reviewer: Redfibee 5 reviews from this member

 We stayed here with our 2 very young children. It was a lovely campsite. Nice and quiet, and they allow fires in a grate that is permanently located at the field after some kind campers made it for them and left it there. Toilet facilities are portaloos, but are kept reasonably well. Washing facilities are basic - a hosepipe in the corner of the field.

Kate and her children are great, very sociable and helpful. My children loved going to help milk the cows each evening.

Only downside is a slight slope in the field, which is most noticeable at 4am after the children have woken you and you're trying to get back to sleep.

Reviewer: Sianheard 1 review from this member

 This has to be the best campsite in the area if you want to experience peace, stunning surroundings, and the feeling that you are somewhere way back in your childhood memories of the countryside.

The views are outstanding and Kate is the most welcoming host you can hope for.

Not for ravers, but you can always go down to Slade beach for the best barbecue location (take a torch and good footwear).

Gower fits all: surfing in Llangennith, riding at Parc Le Breos, fishing, boat rides ( Try " Gower explorer") sailing, water sports (lots of places to hire, but nearest is based in nearby Oxwich Bay), fishing, kayaking: the list is endless.

Reviewer: Kate Beynon 2 reviews from this member

 The season is now over and my field is once again a field.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to stay at Eastern Slade, whether it was for one night or longer.  This year has been really busy for us but everyone has made my job of looking after the site a real joy to do.  I would like to thank everyone who has taken time out to make a review of the site, it has helped me sell camping at Eastern Slade a lot easier.  For all those youngsters who have helped us milk, the girls really enjoyed seeing new faces in the milking parlour, (one day we will have someone to help with the morning milking) Sox my horse, Kizzy and Ellie the dogs have really enjoyed all the attention too.  
Slade bay is quiet now and bracing itself for the winter storms, which I will enjoy watching as the waves pound the cliffs, hopefully we won't lose too much of our field this winter and we will keep the sand for next summer. 
I wish everyone a good rest of 2006 and hopefully I will see some familiar faces for the 2007 camping season. 
Best wishes Kate, Keith, Tom, Jack & Harry

 Our family of four have just returned from this fantastic site. Very basic, but the sea views are amazing. Kate is very accommodating and helpful, and the family made us feel so welcome. The beach is stunning, and the kids loved the whole experience of back to basics! We will be back there soon!
