Super Site

Great site with large pitches, very well kept and well organised with covid guidance in place. Good location for exploring The Gower and a warm welcome from Mike, the owner. Good Wi Fi and eggs available. Why wouldn't you go back!

Excellent site

Stayed 4 nights mid April 21. Very well laid out and well-maintained site. Plenty of defined space around the 5 pitches. Helpful and welcoming owners. Site convenient for great walking and of course, close to Gower's wonderful beaches. Will return, thanks Mike and Jayne.

Peaceful and perfect

We recently stayed at this site for a long weekend. It was perfect in every way. Peaceful but a great location for walks and exploring the Gower peninsula. The site is pristine and one of the nicest CL we've stayed at. The effort that Mike and Jane go to is above and beyond that we've had before; we even had a gift of eggs from their ducks and chicken that came to visit us daily on our pitch, Each pitch is fenced with well maintained grass and hardstand. This really is a gem of a site and one we will definitely return to. Thank you both.

Beautiful CL and warm welcome

Beautiful CL and the owners Mike and his partner were extremely welcoming and offered many Suggestions for visiting the local places of interest. Mike spends time in looking after this CL which is bordered by lovely flowers and solar lights. Plenty of room on each pitch and rubbish, water and chemical disposal Located midway between pitches. Very well thought out and combination lock on entrance gate gives peace of mind. This is what an excellent CL should look like and all this for £15 a night. Specific conditions were laid out for coping with current covid crisis, social distancing was easy here. Thoroughly recommended!

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.
