Why stay here ...

Stembridge Farm is situated on the northern side of the beautiful Gower peninsular (Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), it is a tranquil site, set on a small working farm with views of the glorious Cefn Bryn. Children and pets are welcome to the site (dogs must be kept on leads). The site is situated in a large field and set out into 5 fenced pitches each having an electric hook up, each pitch has both a hard standing and a grassed area with room for car parking, awnings, table and chairs and BBQ. WiFi is also available. There is a chemical waste disposal point a fresh water tap and recycling bins.

The site is in an ideal position to explore Gower, it is situated just 4 miles from the spectacular Llangennith beach which is on the eastern edge of the Gower Peninsula, the beach is dog-friendly, family-friendly and great for water sports, especially surfing. It is 8 miles from the award winning Rhossili beach and it’s famous worm’s head headland. Mumbles is 13 miles away, which has a cosmopolitan village feel with it’s mix of shops and bars, it was one of Dylan Thomas’ many stamping grounds and is home to some world class ice cream. The city centre of Swansea is just 12 miles away, with it’s indoor market which is the largest in Wales, Dylan Thomas’ childhood home, the Dylan Thomas Centre and the Marina housing the Waterfront Museum.

Gower also has over 200 miles of footpaths and rights of way, there is no better way to fully appreciate Gower’s wonderful coast, views, castles and countryside than by walking its many paths.

Just 0.7 miles away (easy walking) is the Greyhound Inn which has a wide varied menu, it’s own brewery, a children’s outdoor play area and welcomes dogs. In Llanrhidian Village 1.5 miles away is Dolphin Inn, which has a variety of traditional snacks and a beer garden overlooking the salt marsh of Llanrhidian, or a stout walk over Cefn Bryn (not advised at night) brings you to the King Arthur Hotel in Reynoldston.

Quite wonderful

We had two weeks here early in September, and found none of the problems mentioned in other reviews. The site is very close to the road, but we heard little traffic in the evening and it certainly didn't bother us at night. Nor did we see any dog mess on site, although of course there may have been inconsiderate visitors after we left. As for dogs barking at night, although we saw a number of dogs I don't remember hearing them at all. The site itself was absolutely fine, five hardstandings in a row, with the option of facing your van either way round. Facing your van across the adjacent field gives a lovely view, with cattle and sheep, and if you're lucky the chance to watch the farmer working his collie. Your own private One Man And His |Dog. There are two loos and they were kept absolutely spotless. There are many places to visit within a short drive-Rhossili was a personal favourite-although parking charges can be a bit steep at some of the beaches. All in all we were well pleased and next time we visit the Gower we will know where to book.

Nice site but not quiet

First things first. Its described as being a tranquil site, but the road that runs along side is very busy, and therefore very noisy, although it does quieten down overnight. The farm dogs howling in the middle of the night wasn't good either, as several people were moaning about them. The site itself is well maintained, with delightful owners who take great pride in keeping the site looking good. Its a pity that some of the other site users do their part, as there was dog poo just left on the site. Location wise, it was very good, not being too far from anything in the Gower area. Don't think that you can walk to the local pub though, as the road is much to fast and dangerous. Free wi-fi and toilets on site was very useful. I'm not sure I'd stay again, because of the road, but who knows, we may decide that the location outweighs the noise from the road, and the owners are lovely.

Most Welcoming Owners I have met.

Our second visit here and once again welcomed like a family member returning from afar. So refreshing to be treated this way, Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful owners here. The pitches now benefit from their own dedicated water supply so less trudging around with heavy aquaroll , most welcome. Clean and fresh toilets and services . Top this with Fresh Eggs ,what more is needed. Some road noise but the views make up for that in my opinion. Keep it up Glenda and Colin, thanks again for a good week,

Three times in two years isn't bad!

I guess we are addicted to Stembridge Farm and the wonderful Gower. However, this time we had a lovely surprise because for just £12 a night we had a fully serviced pitch, bargain! It has only been fully serviced for a couple of weeks and this just added to a what is always an enjoyable stay. Glenda and Colin are lovely hosts too, nothing is too much trouble for them. We will be back again and again.
