Why stay here ...

Tyr Coed 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.

Jayne and Mike look forward to welcoming you to their CL.

A Well Kept and Tidy CL Site on the Scenic Gower Peninsular

Mike and Jane, owners of Tyr Coed are friendly and welcoming. Easy to find (look out for Mike’s bright orange wind sock 😀) Ease of access and on leaving, the road is a fairly quiet one. All pitches are very generously sized, with part hard standing and part grass, separated by low fencing and well kept plants, shrubs and small trees, grass is cut short. We enjoyed staying here earlier in the year and couldn’t wait to come back again to explore more of the fabulous Gower walks and its fabulous beaches, (some great for surfing, others sandy, rocky and safe swimming etc..) Shops are not too far away, but best to have transport, though the Gower does have bus services. WiFi and scenic countryside views from this campsite are a bonus. 😀 Ps. Not forgetting our daily visits from the campsites delightful chickens and ducks.

A real gem!

Ty'r Coed is a real gem of a CL. Very large, individually fenced pitches with plenty of room for car(s), caravan, awning, tables and chairs etc. Our hardstanding pitch was level, with the site overall on very slightly sloping ground, but certainly not enough to worry about (no blocks required). Each pitch has flowers, and solar lights at ground level to softly illuminate the site at night. The windsock at the site boundary is a great idea to help locate the gated entrance, which is large enough for car and caravan to easily pull off the road before unlocking the coded secure gate (another good idea). The field is surrounded by high hedges, so not visible from the road, but once on site there are lovely views of Cefn Bryn. We loved it. Many thanks to Mike and Jayne for such a great site.

Fab CL

We were here for the first time over the Whitsun holidays for a week. What a beautiful area to visit and beautiful cl. The photos do not do the site justice as it is a lot more established. Mike and Jane are lovely people and make you feel extremely welcome. Mike is very easy to talk too and can give you lots of information about the area. The pitches are well spaced out and have plenty of room. The water point, bins and waste area are easy to access and clean. It is lovely to be visited by the chickens, ducks that wander up from the farm area. We will definately recommend this to our other caravanners who would want to come to this area. Well done. Keep up the good work.

THIS IS A GREAT CL

This is our first visit to the Gower area and although it’s late April 2018 it would be hard to find a CL site as good as this. From the moment we arrived Michael was most hospitable.With information relating to the site and local amenities and tourist attractions within easy reach of site. The site itself is neat and tidy with 5 large fenced pitch areas. Access is easy with sufficient parking room prior to security gate. An orange wind sock denotes entrance which can be seen as you approach site. All in all we have spent 8 days here, with good tv reception and free Wi-fi to all pitches this is a site to enjoy thankyou Mike and Jane. See you again. Regards Lin Ron & Rocky. .
