Why stay here ...

Nant-y-Wrach is situated literally on the edge of Llanrhidian marsh. It is the site for you if you like birdwatching or just want to wake up to birdsong. You can walk from the site to the village of Llanrhidian across the marsh road to collect your paper from the village shop/petrol station. It is within walking distance of the Dolphin Inn and the Purple Badger. The Dolphin Inn is a small country pub with a delightful beer garden. The Purple Badger has a children's playarea and serves a wide variety of meals.

The site is 20 minutes from Swansea City centre and the quiant, small, market town of Mumbles. Close to the stunning beaches of Llangennith (excellent surfing when the weather is suitable) and Llanmadoc. Both beaches are excellent for walking. The area is peaceful and even at the height of summer you can find relaxation here.

The site has five pitches with electric hook-ups and water supply and is situated in the corner of a large field.

At certain times, the access road is covered by tidal water, please ensure you check with the owner about tide times.

Simply a Gem!

My wife and I can reiterate everything the previous reviewer stated. Diane should be applauded for how well the site is run and maintained. During prolonged heavy rain there are some drainage problems we understand and certainly a Motorhome came unstuck whilst repositioning to fill with water whilst we were there but Diane contacted a very helpful neighbour who willingly provided a tow out. She has plans to extend the shingle to avoid this problem more readily in the future. We had no such problems with our car and caravan - which has a mover. The big plus side is that the site is just behind Llanrhidian Marsh and the pitches are along the edge of a stunningly beautiful wild flower meadow! Birds, birds, birds! We loved it. Easy access to all that the Gower has to offer plus Llanelli WWT Visitor Centre and wildfowl reserve not far away. Dinewfr NT property well worth a visit and we also took the scenic train ride from Gowerton to Carmarthen both for the views along the estuary and to enjoy the town. All in all a super little site.

Peace and Pubs

This site is easy to access and easy to find. Diane sent a full email before we arrived with great directions. Easy access water, waste and recycling. A good mix of sun and shade on each pitch, the site is well maintained with the grass kept short leading into a meadow field which the dog loved. You can walk for miles and although pubs at the end of a walk are not everyone's ideal there was one in every direction!. Turning right out of the site walk into Crofty (45min) along the marsh filled with sheep and horses, we walked right around the village on the marsh side before ending at the pub (dog-friendly, does food but we didn't eat) with a little shop opposite. Walking left out of the site into Llanrhidian (15min) follow the Wales Coast Path through field and woodlands out to Weobly Castle, you can keep going out to a lighthouse but we didn't make it that far. We turned around and headed back to the village for a three-course Sunday lunch at the Welcome Country Pub & Kitchen - dog-friendly, reasonably priced and the food was amazing. It's so quiet, friendly and great for walking. We would definitely come here again. It's also an easy base to explore the rest of the Gower.

Great little site

We have just returned home after spending a fantastic week at this very peaceful and tranquil site. We were made most welcome by the owner Diane who was very helpful and supplied us with local information. The area is beautiful, fantastic if you enjoy walking, you can literally walk from the site for miles. This part of the Gower is wonderful with such varied scenery, fabulous beaches, heathland and of course the wilderness of the salt marshes where you will see horses, cattle and sheep grazing freely. We weren't lucky enough to see any marsh harriers but there are plenty of bird species to look out for. There are 2 really good pubs within easy walking distance just along the marsh road, we had a meal in the Welcome Inn which was excellent. We also enjoyed the Dolphin Inn which is very much a local pub, we were made to feel very welcome by the owner. When we arrived the ground was very wet, it had been raining heavily before our arrival (it is on the edge of the marsh!), we did struggle with the width of the hardstanding, there was no room to accommodate our awning on dry ground, we managed without it but it would a huge improvement if the pitches were made a bit wider and drained. We also appreciate that the site is wonderfully natural and is very sympathetic to the surroundings. Diane has already made improvements since opening last year, including concrete paths to the water taps and bins etc. We loved our stay and will definitely return.

Peace an quiet

If peace and quiet is what you want then this is the site for you. We visited in early July when the weather was at its hottest. How lovely to just sit and watch the swallows swooping over the newly cut field. Right on the edge of Llanrhidian marsh, sometimes the marsh ponies would come right up to the gate. Mrs Thomas, the owner came to meet us on arrival (complete with at AA van escort, but that's another story). The site is new this year so all electrics etc. are brand new and up to date. We wish Mrs Thomas every success with her new venture and hope to visit again soon.

lovely peaceful CL

We stayed for just one night in June 1018, newly opened site on the edge of the Llanrhidian Marsh, peaceful with nice scenery. Well laid out 5 hardstandings with EHU, grey water and black waste disposal, fresh water and recycling bins. a 10 minute walk to the Purple Badger restaurant and other pubs in the village although we didn't visit those. Great for cycling or walking along the flat marsh road. Points to note, email seems to be the best way of booking, we tried both telephone numbers over a period of two days with no answer, we turned up unannounced in the end but there was room so it was ok, the owner does prefer email bookings. Pitches are slightly sloping so levelling blocks needed for motorhomes and the pitches are a little short for tag axled vehicles but ok to stick out into the roadway if you manage to get the top pitch. Confirm price with your booking, we expected to pay £15 (one motorhome, two adults, one dog) but were charged £20 on arrival although the other motorhome already there were charged £15(also two adults but no dog). £20 is a bit on the expensive side given facilities are basic with no washroom/toilets. We will probably go back as the location is great for us with friends on Llanrhidian Holiday Park across the road
