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.

Nice CL

Visited for 4 nights in September. The sites 5 pitches are of concrete and gravel hardstanding with grass on either side. Pitches are a good size and each has it's own electric and water supply. You can pitch front in which gives you a view over the farm fields or reverse in with a view of a tall hedge which separates the site from the road! We pitched front in and had the benefit of the view plus watching Mr Gordon train his sheepdogs! There is a toilet block just off the site by the house which was kept very clean. The elsan disposal is outside the toilet block. There was plenty of hand sanitiser in the toilet block and at the elsan point. Rubbish was separated into different bins in a corner of the site and again, there was plenty of hand sanitiser. The site is in a good location on the Gower and the owners are very friendly. Be aware that it is a working farm with the associated occasional noise of farm machinery and occasionally the farm dogs barking but this was not incessant by any means and neither were a problem for us. There were chickens wandering the site in the daytime which although very friendly our dog, unfortunately, only wanted to chase them so she had to be kept in the caravan or if outside, in her crate most of the time. There is a paddock between the site and the farm fields where sheep are normally kept but these are moved into the next field if caravanners have dogs so that the paddock can be used for dog walking. Dog poo bags were placed along the fence in little containers! The site is on the side of the Llanrhidian to Llangenith road and there can be quite a bit of traffic noise in the daytime but it does go quiet at night. If you are going to the site on a school day try to avoid school start and end times as you will have to pass Llanrhidian Primary School and the parents parked cars cause the road to be narrowed considerably. The site description says that the Greyhound pub is within walking distance. Sadly, the Greyhound has closed and is in a sorry state. The Welcome Inn in Llanrhiddian village was just that though, very friendly staff and COVID secure as far as it is possible. All in all a nice, tidy site and very reasonably priced.

Lovely CL run by lovely people!

Not much more I can add to the several favourable reviews already written about this CL. We stayed here for 3 nights in our camper van. Warm and friendly welcome from Mrs Gordon. Road is busy during the day but we found it quiet and peaceful overnight. Loved watching Colin train his sheepdogs. Lovely man to talk to and so very talented regarding sheepdog training. Also enjoyed the chickens strolling around the site... very tame and seemed to enjoy some of our granola! Bins clearly laid out for various recycling and in addition to this, due to the current pandemic I assume, there was a table with hand sanitiser, kitchen roll and bin liners available. Also noticed along the fence at various points, doggy poo bags available in little plastic holders. We walked from the site, turning left and walking up the road approx 100 yards, then turning left to join a footpath which took us on a safe route to Woebley Castle and the Wales coast path. Would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return.

August on the Gower

This is my first time of staying on a CL and we were not disappointed. I had originally booked the club site at Gowerton but found this CL with toilets, hard standing and water point to every pitch which was a bonus when using the shower in the van. Also it was better located with easy access to all parts of the Gower for all the walking that we wanted to do. Most people pitch front end in first allowing a lovely view over the farmers field and beyond to the marshes. The owners directions from their website were very detailed allowing a straight forward journey. The site is on a popular route so can be noisy during the day in peak season but we were out every day so it didn’t bother us. Across our week we walked virtually all of the coast path experiencing fantastic views every day. Something worth considering if you have not been to the Gower before is to come with plenty of supplies as there are very few shops for even the basics. There is a garage with competitively priced fuel and a shop about 1.5-2 miles away in Llanrhidian. We ate at the Britannia Inn which we did walk to once but it is about 45 minutes walk so might be too far for some and again when we drove, food was lovely and views from the garden over the marshes are lovely. The Welcome in Llanrhidian serves nice food too. The King Arthur at Reynoldstone was again a lovely place to eat but does get busy. Booking is essential at all three of these places in season. All in all a lovely week was had.

Lovely, welcoming site

This is a great CL. Easy to find, nice and flat with very good facilities including toilets, water tap on pitch, free Wi-Fi and lovely view over the fields. Added bonus is being able to watch Colin training sheepdogs in the field adjacent to the site. Pretty straightforward access to local beaches, Rhossili, Oxwich and Port Eynon although some of the signposting can be a bit confusing! The Welcome Inn in Llanrhidian serves very good food (the lamb chops were fantastic) . Access is down very narrow lane and car park very tight but worth the effort. Glenda and Colin are very friendly hosts who make you very welcome. We would highly recommend this site when visiting The Gower. We would certainly use it again

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.
