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. There is a well stocked shop and post Office situated in the local garage 1.5 miles away and a supermarket in Penclawdd 6 miles away.

August on the Gower - Stembridge Farm

AWe stayed 15 nights on this well kept CL which is conveniently located for visiting all parts of the Gower. Unlike many of the sites on the Gower there is good access from the M4 via the B4295 but vehicles higher than 3.3 meters should not follow the site directions so as to avoid a low railway bridge. Instead of taking the A484 continue on the A483 and take the A4216 to the B4295. This avoids the low railway bridge. The site GPS position is also slightly out, the correct co-ordinates are 51.60523°N, 4.20833°W. A little care is needed at a couple of narrow sections once past the Esso garage in Llanrhidian and larger outfits should take care on entering and leaving the site. The turn into and out of the site can be a little tight. As stated by other visitors, the adjacent road can be noisy in the day time, probably less so off peak, but it is a quiet site at night. Contrary to the site description the closest pub, the Greyhound, is closed. We had an excellent Sunday lunch in the King Arthur Hotel at Reynoldston and the family pub, the Rake and Riddle at Penclawdd serves good simple food. We also visited the Britannia Inn with its fine views from the garden patio and the Purple Badger but ate in neither of these. The Gower has many fine beaches, many of which are dog friendly. We particularly liked Caswell, Langland and Oxwich for ease of access to the beach and facilities. Walkers have a great many opportunities for exercise of a wide variety. I particularly enjoyed a morning's circular walk alongside the cliff tops from the NT car park at Southgate to Threecliffs Bay returning via the path alongside the golf course and of course a walk at Rhossili is a must. On a rainy day we made a trip into Swansea, visiting the free Waterfront Museum and the large indoor market. The acid test is would we use this site again, the answer is an emphatic yes.

Just perfect!

We cannot add anything to the previous reviews but just wanted to say a great big 'thankyou' to Mr and Mrs Gordon for all they do to make everyones stay a memorable one. We had stayed here previously some years ago and wanted to return, we were not disappointed! We hope to be back but the down side is that we live in Cornwall so it's not just around the corner! Many, many thanks for an excellent CL.

We visited Stembrige Farm in early Sept 2018 and it is now our favourite CL site. What is there not to like about this site, very friendly approachable owners, easy to find using their directions, fresh water to every pitch, working farm where you can watch them training their sheepdogs. Couple of great pubs nearby doing good food and hand pulled ales, fantastic beaches and walks all around the peninsula to suit all tastes, spotlessly clean toilets. It is such a great area, like Cornwall without the crowds. Many thanks to Glenda and Colin for making our visit so special, unfortunately we had to cut our visit short as we had to return home for a hospital appointment, we will most certainly be visiting Stembridge Farm again in the near future. R&P 👍

We love this site. Very friendly owners, superbly maintained with level hardstandings and clean toilets. Stayed for a few days in the hot weather of July. Because of the weather, there was a lot of holiday traffic around but outside of weekends things quietened down and we were not bothered by traffic noise. So much to see and do in The Gower with lots of fabulous walking and good pubs to recover in.
