 What a great place! when we visited the site on a bank holiday weekend in August we'd never been camping before so we didn't really know what to expect, it was the BEST holiday we'd ever had and the best part is that there's nothing there, 3 chemical toilets and a cold water tap!.
There is a very quiet beach nearby called Slade Bay, it's a lovely quiet beach with rock pools galore although its not very accessible if you have very small children in buggy's, but if you can make it down its very nice. A short walk away is the lovely little village of Oxwich with a few shops and a lovely beach where you can pick cockles which our kids loved.
Kate the person who owns the land is a lovely person and cannot do enough for you, she runs the place very well, she comes round and cleans and re-stocks the toilets every morning and to make sure every ones fine, it's a real working dairy farm and at 4.30pm everyday you can go along and watch the cows being milked which I would recommend as our kids loved it!.
Dogs are allowed too as we took two of ours and they loved it as well, all in all it was a wonderful holiday and we will definitely go back very soon! thanks for a great holiday Kate :)

 Took my 7 year old son and my brother in law took his 8 year old on a visit to the gower in search of a campsite for 1 friday night stay. We had 2 x two man tents ( mine is 28 years old and last used about 25 years ago when I last went camping and still have the bad back to prove! ) all the sites we tried were full as the weather has been lovely but after a quick glance in the field, Kate kindly let us stay.
It is basic but that is part of it's appeal. The main bit is it's location which is simply stunning. A 10 min walk down the lane and through a field and you are on one of the best beaches you will ever come across- Slade beach - I think. No ice cream shops, cafe, chippie, gift shop, toilets or car access. BLISS ! we went in the sea which is clear ( unlike near where we live ) Fri pm and Sat am and the surf was great for body-boarding. The big kids enjoyed it as much as the small ones and they never once asked for anything, which makes a change! 
All in, a great place to stay if you want to experience true no frills camping. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Kate for letting us stay.

 This site is quiet and the members very friendly.
Kate the proprietor is extremely helpful and informative.
I would recommend this site to anyone who is prepared to get back to the real camping ethos, ie no electric, no hot water. This is what camping is all about and the view is spectacular.

 Simply lovely. This is the place to go for a peaceful break. We stayed here last year, and the children (11 & 8) are asking to go back again. OK, there are next to no facilities, but the views, the coastal walks, the beach and the helpful, friendly proprietor make this the sort of place you want to go back to.

Reviewer: Colin waller 1 review from this member

 This is a brilliant site if you want to get away from it all. A real working dairy farm with the most friendly and welcoming owners you could wish to meet. The field slopes gently and although the site is very basic, this is more than compensated by the stunning views.

The site was full to capacity when we were there but after about 10.30 pm there was no noise.(apart from a few owls and the occasional moo of a cow) A site to which we will most definitely be returning.

 This is a wonderful site, its basic but very well cared for, thats what makes it all the more special, along with the warm welcome we recieved from Kate the owner.

The area is beautiful, Slade beach is very quiet and secluded but difficult to get to if you have small children, as it has no proper access (that we could find) its a beautiful beach and well worth the trip if you can get to it.

Theres lots to do in the area, Oxwich castle is a short walk from the site and Oxwich village has a shop that sells just about everything.
Our children especially enjoyed watching the cows being milked on the farm. We had a great time and will definatly be visiting again.

 Just had lovely weekend with great weather at the Gower - whilst the rest of the peninsula was heaving, this was a little haven of tranquility! It is a great site for camping - just portaloos and mains tap, but the welcome from the owners, and the little cove that you can walk to, make 'roughing it' a little very worthwhile (after all, that is what camping is all about isn't it?). We had the best pitch in the field (at the top) - the view is breathtaking!

We went to Eastern Slade Farm in August. A great basic site with stunning views and a short walk to some of the best beaches. A great place to get away from it all.

Kate (the owner) was very friendly and made us very welcome.

It is worth noting that the field is steeply sloped so take your blocks with you for leveling caravans and motohomes.

Basic site, fantastic views overlooking Porteynon. Very quiet and peaceful, site did not get too busy. Very reasonable, charges are per tent and not per person and we were allowed to set up where we wanted to. Kept very clean. Portable toilet and mains water on site. Very friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely return.
