 Lovely views, extremely friendly host, easy access to the coastal path.

Field is on an incline and dependant on where you are you may need blocks for your van.

Lovely area and we will return.

Reviewer: Bede 7 reviews from this member

 It is a sloping field which, this year, has an hosepipe as its only facility. (Camping loos can be emptied in the farmyard. )

Slade Beach continues to be splendidly empty and beautiful and about 10 minutes walk away. You need to 'abseil' down the path but we've managed it in the past with a three month old in a sling, as well as buckets and spades and picnics, etc.

There is now a chippy at the bottom of the hill in Oxwich which is open, in August at least, on a Sunday evening.

The views are utterly idyllic and we had been looking forward to getting back to basics. We had naively imagined this would be the approach of everyone there. Whilst it was the approach of the majority, the generator that ran from 7 am - 11 pm whether or not the owners were in, accompanied by the extremely loud car radio, and singing along to it till 11 o'clock proved that this wasn't the universal approach.

Access is very tight. Pass the campsite and turn round in the farmyard if you're towing/bigger than normal (although the ice cream van which visited each day managed it easily). We got rather stuck and were very grateful indeed for the help from Kate, the very warm owner, and some of the other campers.

Reviewer: Lucyshades 3 reviews from this member

 Very warm welcome from owner to what is a very basic site. Just porta loos and one water tap on the field but motor homes can use the farm for chemical waste and a longer fresh water hose. I did not use the porta loos but they were inspected daily. No recycling bins but all bags are collected daily if left by unit.

With all that it is reflected in the price and good value.

Sloping pitches all over field but the views are beautiful and easy access to the Gower coast footpath.

Happy to recommend this site.

 Fabulous site open to non caravan members as well. Sloping pitch but views to die for. Fantastic.

Portaloo toilets which were perfectly adequate. Water tap but owner will let you fill up your van at her farm which is a couple of yards away.

 My Husband, my son and myself had a lovely four day stay here, there was only two other family's so lovely if you enjoy the peace and quiet. The views were amazing and fab to wake up to.

Its a very quiet site which suited us and also very basic with just one Portaloo and one cold water tap (watch the nettles around it!)The local Bay wasn't too far away, could be difficult and rocky in places but lovely once your down there with endless rock pools for the kids to explore.

Oxwich Bay was a short car drive away and Port Eynon was about 10-12 mins by car, both are great days out for the family. The local shop is in Oxwich and the cashpoint is in the neighbouring Village of Knelston and they are both pretty well stocked up on everyday essentials.

The only bad point is that the field is more on an incline that anticipated and it did make sleeping a bit awkward. Would I stay here again?. Yes, most definitely!

 We stayed here in April/May for the May Day Bank Holiday.

On arrival Kate came and introduced herself and showed us where to pitch on a very basic quiet field, which is just how we like it and what camping is all about :)

The field is sloping in all directions, which makes for great views of the coast, but made sleeping a little uncomfortable.

At the bottom of the field are portaloos and there are a couple of fire extinguishers at the bottom and top of the field, which unfortunately have been used and so are not usable if there were a fire emergency.

We walked via the coastal path to the private beach which was a little tricky in parts but all good fun and the kids enjoyed the walk.

If you like old fashioned basic camping then this site is great. Nice, quiet & scenic.

 As is made clear in the details, this is a very small and very basic campsite with limited level areas.

It is very close to the coast path and beach but these are not accessible directly from the site. Good views out to sea and a very quiet spot.

Toilets consist of portaloos at the bottom of the field.

Reviewer: Aurelie 1 review from this member

 We chose the campsite by chance, and what luck it was! We arrived quite late at night, and pitched up the tents before night fell, having warned the owners we would arrive quite late. The view from the campsite is amazing, but it's beauty was revealed to us the next morning with the sun shinning and reflecting onto the sea below from us.

The campsite slopes a bit, which means a great view of the Bristol Channel, but also means that we kept sliding down in our bed. To be fair, that would be the only downfall that we found with the campsite, and that wasn't much of an issue.

Kate, the owner as has been said, does at least one daily round to pick up rubbish and clean portaloos, and has been very friendly, inviting the kids to come and see the cows being milked and the calves fed, which was a great experience for them. Even though the Gower Peninsula is of outstanding beauty, we found ourselves quite happy to stay in the campsite not doing much.

The facilities are basic (potaloos and a tap) but that didn't stop us from staying 11 nights on site. The portaloos were clean but did get a bit smelly at times, probably due to the heat. Kate was however on call whenever something needed to be sorted. All in all, 5* rating is the least we could give it.

The other campers were really nice too, and our kids made friends in no time. This is a fairly small and intimate campsite, but gave a sense of camaraderie which I've not experienced in many campsites before.

The 'private' beach is outstanding, with lovely sand and great rockpools where we found an array of creatures, such as shrimps, crabs, starfish and young fish, etc, . The kids loved it! The sea was quite cold but again it's to be expected around the UK, and the water could be a bit rough at times, but made for great boogie boarding, so didn't bother us.

The track down to the beach is a bit rough too, and you can't really take a buggy down to the beach because of the rock climbing but was well worth the effort, I think we went down there 4 or 5 times over our stay, to give you an idea of how good it was there.

All in all, I'd highly recommend this campsite, as long as you don't expect material luxuries and can appreciate natural beauty you should enjoy this campsite as much as we did.

Thanks Kate, Keith and the boys for a great holiday!

Jake, Aurelie, Sid and Josie
