 Great location and lovely site, especially mid-week. Weekends can be a bit busy with youngsters playing music & shouting.

The site is in between the A48 and the A483, so it does get noise from both these main roads, day & night.

We had a fully serviced pitch on the smaller field and it all worked really well except the infrequent rubbish disposal.

The dog meadow was great with lots of wild flowers including loads of orchids and the adjacent gorse meadow was nice too though you needed to check for sheep before going there with dog.

We found it easy to access the Gower, the Brecon Beacons, the Towi estuary and Tenby. Oh and Swansea! There was a big Tesco 10 minutes away at Pontarddulais and various local convenience stores within a few minutes.

We may well be back.

 Excellent find, ideal area for exploring wales and the Gower

Would recommend Wellies (itís in wales). And take a torch, friendly helpful bunch

Will definitely be returning.

 Lovely site with easy access from main roads. We stopped in the family field which was good for us, there is no playground but space for play and games in the family field. There is also a separate adult only field too.

The wardens were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make you feel welcome and answer queries about places to go etc.

The facilities were spotless and despite there only being 2 showers each in men's/women's (4 total), we never queued even at August bank holiday. Our pitch was nearest the road and there was some slight road noise but this wasn't intrusive or a problem, however we were out of range for the free WiFi. There is a small shop on-site with the basics.

All in all a nice site, however there is nothing in the immediate vicinity, so you need a car each day.

 Excellent site we found by accident in a camping magazine despite living only 15 mins down the road. We had a lovely warm welcome from the owner and then introduced to the warden who showed us to our pitch and also gave us a choice as the site was quite the weekend we were there. We chose the pitch right at the top of the steps leading to the toilet block which was level with easy access. The toilet/shower block was lovely and warm with hot water all day round.

The owners and the wardens always made time to stop and talk and to tell us about the lovely walks around the site. We will definitely be returning to this site. Only downside (and I am being fussy) is that although there is a large grass play area for the children, a park area would make this a perfect site.

 Booked for the Bank Holiday as event nearby. No pub, shop unless you got on the dual carriageway and visited McD. Pitches not generous and a bit haphazard. Nice walk uphill to area catering for children, tents and 'vans and dog walk. Charging for dogs (have 2) added up the costs for weekend.

Toilet block was OK and clean, but the amount of tenters and children queueing for showers etc was inadequate.

We started visiting this site many years ago and found it a peaceful tranquil site, with spacious pitches and nice clear grassed areas with views to the river.

That has all changed now. In the bottom field which still remains adult only at this time, has had two pods sited. The once free grassed areas are used for, caravans, Motorhomes White Man Van and tents. During our recent visit, at leat half a dozen vans were crammed onto the grass areas, makeshift workshops were then set up to work on their motorbikes. Sadly the latter users think nothing of trampling across your pitches with fag in one hand and a beer in another.

The downside of the random pitching is the damage to the grassed area's. Great if you are after the festival feel.

Safety gaps between vehicles are not followed. The top field is used mainly by sited tourers and a second field has been added. The extra footfall might be great for revenue, but no expansion has been included in the amenities such has toilets and showers etc.

The once top field reserved for dog walking is now shared with a 5 aside football pitch and the other top field also has a climbing area for the children. The added £2. 00 cost per dog despite size is extortionate.

Unlikely to use again despite being regular users in the past. SHAME.

 A first class site, the guys that run it are very friendly, knowledgable and couldn't do enough to help. Its really well equipped and spotlessly clean.

We had no children and there were none there while we were, so can't comment on child friendliness, but I would be surprised if the kids weren't given a warm welcome.

We were right by the river, and I don't think I could have asked for a better spot to spend 2 nights. Will definitely be going back

 Peaceful, owners very friendly, organised welcome leaflets, toilets spotless, on site shop very well priced, owners went out of their way to help us as we are very new to setting up a caravan and awning.

 We (a couple with two elderly dogs and an elderly caravan) have just returned from an 8 day stay at River-View and have already booked our next stay. This is a small, friendly site tucked away in a pretty valley yet very easy to find, with good access to beaches, woods and the Black Mountains. There is a stream running alongside the adults only field, a ford at the end of the lane, a dog walking field, and a small woodland walk with stream, as well as sheep, chickens and pigs.

The spotless facilities block is in the middle of the site, with lots of hot water - both for the showers and for the washing up area. The showers have under floor heating, bliss on a cold morning! There are plenty of water points, general waste bins and a recycling area for cans, papers etc.

There is low level lighting at night but we would suggest taking a torch for those night time excursions.

The owners are friendly and helpful, suggesting dog friendly places to visit and lending us with an extra electric cable when our cable wasn't long enough to reach the power point. There are plenty of basic supplies at the reception shop, and DVD's to borrow for a donation to Air Ambulance.

All in all a well located, clean, tidy, friendly site.
