Tyr Coed CL is situated on the northern side of the beautiful Gower peninsular, it is a tranquil site, set on a small working farm with glorious views of Cefn Bryn. The site is situated in a large field with easy access from the road, the entranceway is secured with a coded gate and signposted with an orange windsock. It is set out in 5 generous fenced pitches, each having an electric hook up, a hard standing and grassed areas with room for car parking, awnings, table, chairs and bbq. There is a central chemical waste disposal point a fresh water tap and recycling bins. Free Wi-Fi is available. There is an information hut with information on local amenities.

Families and pets are welcome, chickens and ducks often wander the site.


The site is in an ideal position to explore Gower and the surrounding areas:


• Llangennith beach is 4 miles away, this spectacular beach is dog-friendly and famous for water sports, especially surfing.
• The wild stretch of Whitford sands and the old lighthouse are accessed from Llanmadoc 3.5 miles away.
• Rhossili beach and its famous Worm’s Head headland are just 8 miles away.
• Oxwich Bay with its 2.5 miles of long sandy beach is 6 miles away.
• The famous Three Cliffs Bay is accessed from Parkmill 6.5 miles away. The Gower Heritage Centre is also situated here.
• Mumbles is 13 miles away, the seaside village has a cosmopolitan feel with its mix of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants it is also home to some world class ice cream.
• The city centre of Swansea is 12 miles away, its indoor market is the largest in Wales and sells a variety of local produce. Swansea also has a marina, a Waterfront Museum and a leisure centre with a water park, great fun on a rainy day.
• WWT Llanelli Wetlands Centre is 13 miles away, on the saltmarshes of the Bury Inlet, great for serious birdwatchers or a day out with the kids.

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. You can walk from the site, along the road for 300 metres and join a footpath that takes you to Weobley Castle overlooking the estuary and salt marsh, this joins with the Gower section of the Wales Costal Path. Or you can take a short drive to the nearby village of Oldwalls and join a footpath that takes you on to Cefn Bryn and King Arthur’s Stone giving superb views of both North and South Gower.

In Llanrhidian village 1.5 miles away is The Welcome Inn, which has a good traditional menu, is dog friendly and has beer garden. There are many pubs, cafes and takeaways all within a short drive. There is a well-stocked shop and post Office situated in the local garage 1.3 miles away and a supermarket in Penclawdd 6 miles away.
Jayne and Mike look forward to welcoming you.

MAINTAINED TO A HIGH STANDARD

Tyr Coed CL
We spent six nights at this site from July 18th to 22nd. Access to the site is fairly easy, in that it is on the main (narrow) route through North Gower. There is room for two vehicles to pass but there are places where meeting another caravan would be a problem. The entrance is hidden and so an orange windsock flies over it. The hedge of the field next door, however, is high enough to make spotting the windsock difficult. There is a keycode for the gate, which gives a sense of security. Inside, the site is very well-maintained, with very large pitches which are numbered and separated with low fences planted with flowers and shrubs. There are views to the hills at one end of the site but otherwise the hedges mean that the views are limited. The owner was on site not long after we arrived and he gave us a good welcome. He lives in the house next door to the CL site and is assiduous about keeping everything clean and neat. With 16 amp electrics and generoous pitches, this site is good value for money and very pleasant. There are two shortcomings to this CL site. The first is that the road outside can be pretty busy in good weather and is not really safe to walk, so one needs to use the car. The second is that there are no mature trees and so there is no shade except any umbrellas and awnings that you take with you. We were there is very hot weather and I longed for the shade of a tree. There are one or two young trees there so perhaps this will be rectified with tiime, as they grow. The area is, of course, very beautiful and there are plenty of beaches to visit, as well as castles and the marshlands towards Gowerton. Swansea is a lovely city with parks and botanic gardens that are well worth a visit, as well as the busy seaside village of Mumbles and the Marina. The National Trust owns parts of the coastline and Rhosilli is particularly worth a visit.

Shh do not tell everyone.....

Tyr Coed CL
Almost loathed to put this review on as we want to be able to get pitches moving forward!! One of the best maintained CLs we have stayed on, the grass was kept immaculate by Mike who works tirelessly to ensure the site, bins etc are kept spick and span..... Easy access (look for the wind sock) yet very close to the fantastic beach at Llangenith - to be honest where we spent most of the week. We found cracking cycleway to Mumbles and there is so much more to explore from this gem. The only downside is that to access any footpaths from the site you have to walk down the road that has no footpath and can be quite busy as is the main road across the north of the peninsular. So in summary will we be back - definitely already booked, see you in August Mike & Jayne......

Had a lovely welcome from Mike, he cares a lot about his CL and his visitors, it clearly shows by how he keeps it, clean and tidy pretty solar lights and flowers dotted around the site. There is hand gel at the water and waste which is great to see. He has an information area and book Swop also chicken and duck eggs for sale. The views are lovely I would say you need transport to get around to see the beautiful Gower. Would definitely recommend this site.
