Lovely place

We had a lovely stay at Buzzards Rest in May. The lovely weather helped and it was nice to sit outside with the sheep munching away at the grass nearby. Within easy travelling distance of Worms Head and beautiful beaches at the Gower. My one very small criticism is that the entry gate could do with some TLC.

A nice site, but noisy during farm harvest time

We visited the site in 2016 on our first caravan trip and we were the only ones there for a weekend in May. It is a nice site with a gentle slope, with plenty of space between pitches and altho there is a little road noise, it was ok. Good access to Rhossili and the coastal area. The problem was that the pitches are right next to a farm track which looked innocent enough, but we were woken at 8am each morning by a tractor and trailer passing very close, which continued every 30 mins or so. The farmer wont be harvesting every day, but it is something to be aware of!

A great place to stay.

Just got back from a fantastic week in Wales. Buzzards Rest is excellently located for exploring the Gower. The magnificent beach at Rhossili Bay is only a couple of minutes away and Broughton Bay, Caswell Bay are within easy reach too. Try the coastal path walk from Horton to Oxwich Bay too. The site is very well maintained and with very generous, virtually level, pitches (at least 10M between hard-standings). There are only 5 pitches but set in a very generous, well maintained field - the grass was mown twice in the six days we were there - We've stayed on sites where at least 20 pitches would have been laid out in the same space! No problems with the EHU or the water and waste facilities. It is true that the site is close to the road, but this didn't disturb us at all. It's a bit of a trawl to a 'big' supermarket, but there is a shop about half a mile away in Scurlage for essentials, and also a pub and chip shop. No hesitation from us in recommending Buzzard's Rest (and we did sit and watch two of them circling and calling one afternoon!) if you want to explore Gower and The Mumbles.

Not so peaceful

The site itself is pleasant enough , hard standings were very grown over but grass in field nicely mown . Main issue was close proximity to road which resulted in al most constant daily traffic noise not what we wanted for our much needed break .

Peaceful, relaxing and well kept

We stayed on this site for a week at the end of July. On arrival we pitched up and later Diane arrived and made us feel most welcome returning later with lots of information about walks, eating places and local attractions etc. The site is a well kept grass field, with hard standings, overlooking a field of grazing sheep. There is a well stocked local shop, fish & chip shop, hairdressers and pharmacy less than a mile away. A public footpath behind the site led to a field where we could let our dogs run and could be used to access more paths. The site is within a short drive to Rhossillii Bay and all the other wonderful Gower beaches. A lovely quiet site perfect for holidaying on The Gower Peninsula.
