Why stay here ...

The photographs show our CL site and its proximity to the sea, cliffs and beach that is 700m away by footpath. A short walk through our adjacent field, over the stile takes you onto the Welsh Coastal Footpath. Our CL is possibly the closest to the sea on Gower and has magnificent uninterrupted views over the Bristol Channel to North Devon. Lundy and Cornwall. The CL is surrounded by mature hedges and we live close by at the top of the field. The National Trust owns the bulk of the cliff, beaches and headland as well as common land on Rhossili Down and all are freely accessible to walkers. Rhossili village is 10 to 15 minute walk where there is The Worms Head Hotel, NT Centre and Car Park (free to NT Members), cafe', craft shop and St Mary's Church. The nearest shops are one mile and two miles the  other way.

Many of our visitors have been coming for  years and we have a lot of repeat bookings. They value the tranquillity of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, views, bird life, beaches, unspoilt landscapes and the ability to walk miles on the network of footpaths. A service bus passes the entrance to Swansea and other parts of Gower. The site is on a slight slope but 3 pitches are level and the other 2 nearly so.

Electricity and water are close to hand. In case of any traction difficulty in wetter weather we have a Land Rover on hand to assist if required. Entrance off the main road is adequate for the smaller and medium sized vans, larger vans up to 7.5 metre can manage with care. Swing out onto the opposite side as you turn in coming from Swansea direction with bigger units. Sorry but twin axle caravans and the very large motor homes will not manage the entrance. This site has operated since the 1960's and we have owned it since 1978. We are camper van owners who have travelled extensively in the UK and Western Europe and appreciate Members requirements. We are on hand, helpful and practical people who can deal with most problems that may occur. Note that breathable ground sheets only must be used in awnings. One or two dogs acceptable if kept on leads and under control but any more are at our discretion. Advise in advance.

Site and pitch features.

Idyllic location

Stayed here June 2019. Highly recommended. Spectacular walks along cliff tops from the campsite. Large pitches. Owners very friendly and helpful. On the Saturday night we heard some bizzare tuneless community singing nearby. The next day we found out there had been a "silent disco" party in the local community hall.

Fabulous site with charming hosts

My husband and I have used this site a number of times and will continue to do so as long as the owners are prepared to share it! CL's are run by busy people and I think sometimes club members forget that they do it more for love than any financial gain by the time they've gone through the aggravation it also brings. It is tricky but not impossible to access; we use a Landrover Disco and have a 4 berth Clubman so by no means a small set up. I'm hoping one day it gets stuck in the field so we can stay :) Long may Beryl and Gordan share their beautiful site.

An escape with a view!

We stayed here for two weeks from 12-26 July 2019. We had no problem getting into site with our Vigo. We went past the site about a .5 mile and turned around in a bus turning area and came in from the other way. As we entered the site the view was stunning. Looking over a wild flower meadow and fields down towards the sea. Beryl came out to greet us and gave us an information sheet and although on a slope, we managed to level with no ramps. We loved the PYO strawberries and raspberries a few miles down the road. We didn’t stray far from the site as we could walk straight out onto the coastal path and down to the little bay at Mewslade. We walked to Rhossili over the coast path for gorgeous and very generous size ice creams. Climbed down to Fall Bay on the way and played in the waves. Worms head is a must although it was quite arduous to get right to the end. Rhossili Down is good walking too, if it’s hot you get the breeze as you’re up so high. Doctors and Chemist quite near and a Premier shop selling most things. We don’t eat out much but there were places about. Fish and chips were brilliant from Port Eynon. We have never had such a relaxing holiday and will return.

Not sure if I should be reviewing this CL!

We wanted to stay for a couple of nights at this CL. As we had left the booking quite late I asked for anything in the next couple of weeks to be as flexible as possible. At this point the man who answered the phone started telling me off as he told me I should book for a week so that other people are not inconvenienced. He continued saying how difficult a request this was using mild expletives. Not wanting to continue the conversation I made my excuses and disconnected the call. Now I am a great supporter of our CL network, but really I just wanted to book a pitch in his field. I got the impression that this was a great inconvenience which makes me wonder why advertise the CL at all. I hope that I would have been treated like a valued customer instead of a nuisance. I don't think I will be going anywhere near Rhossili in the future so there should be plenty of pitches for anyone else just as long as you pass the interview/interrogation.

Great location

As others have said the access is tight so wouldn't like to be a big outfit. A motor home was leaving just as we arrived so we had to reverse quite a way to let him out. The field slopes down so levelling blocks are required. We were with friends and only stayed for 2 nights and would have liked longer as it was so peaceful. The owners were very friendly but there was a mix up with our booking, even though I emailed 6 months previously. It was sorted eventually even though they thought they had over booked. The walk down to the bay is a short distance away and on our 2nd day we walked to Rhossili Bay which is absolutely beautiful. We were blessed with great weather so made our stay here extra special.
