Buzzards Rest
We stayed here in June for 8 nights. Access is through a gate surrounded by trees. The signage is not very obvious - I didn't see 'Buzzards Rest' just the house name. The site is large with well spaced hard standings on a slight slope. EHU is readily available with the water tap located centrally behind the pitches. Recycling is as confusing as ever - not the sites fault as each council area differs here in Wales. Bins and CEP are well arranged and easily accessible near to the main gate. Some reviewers mentioned the near by road noise - we did not notice and at night completely silent and dark (no nearby street lights) - lovely. Dianne the owner, who lives in sight of the site, appeared the next day and informed us of local attractions, pubs etc. She is very amiable. A very pleasant spacious site.

First Welsh outing weekend, 17th July 2020.

Buzzards Rest
What a gem of a place, couple of miles from Rhossili beach, Port Eynon Beach, however, with our new E-bikes, there wasn't a problem. Owners were great very helpful, before and during our stay. Area very clean and in beautiful surroundings. We didn't bring our dog this time, however it would of been fine if we did, with plenty of room. Will definately be back.

Lovely place

Buzzards Rest
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

Buzzards Rest
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.

Buzzards Rest
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.
