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.

Not for Motorhomes

Mewslade View
Holidaying in a motorhome is more about travelling than staying. I normally only stay one night at any particular location. CLs that expect you to stay 3 nights are not, in my view, motorhome friendly. Their website should state their minimum length of stay. Planning a trip is difficult enough without these extra, arbitrary, limitations.

Sadly didn't make it to this lovely site this time due to my elderly Labrador taking a turn for the worst, but would like to say how kind and understanding Mr Howe was when I rang the morning of the booking to cancel. Look forward to staying here in the near future, it looks stunning.

Great site for walking

Mewslade View
Our mum and dad booked this site because it has easy access to great walks. Also, not too far to drive to find other superb ones, in particular the Port Eynon coastal path. The site entrance is quite tight but manageable with care and thought. The site slopes quite a lot but three of the pitches are terraced, levelling blocks make for easy pitching on the lower two. The owners kept their distance but were quite chatty when the opportunity to talk came along. As usual on CLs the other members were lovely like minded people and very friendly. They seemed to like meeting us and stroking us as well as throwing a ball for us to chase. We were allowed to go on all the beaches and enjoyed running in the open spaces and bringing back sticks which our dad had thrown in the sea. We did have to be careful not to stand on the many jelly fish that we stranded in the sand. All in all, we had a lovely ten day stay here and would like to get back one day. From Anna and Arri. Two very happy dogs.

Excellent start

Mewslade View
This is the first time that we have used our membership and can't be more pleased. The site is everything that it says on the tin, tranquil, peaceful with stunning scenery on it's doorstep. We took the coastal path to Rhosilli and the views are simply gorgeous. The site has easy access to the costal path and we found the walk easy going. The walk to Port Eynon starts with a steep decent and a steep climb.. But it's worth the effort. The welcome was warm, our pitch was level and we found the entrance easy to navigate (in a lwb campervan). We know the area very well and would recommend the King Arthur for lunch or evening meal. Be careful if attempting the walk to the end of worms head... The tide can come in quickly. There is normally a sign with times at the coast guard hut near the point. Parking at Rhosilli is free if you are a national trust member.
