Why stay here ...

An easy drive to the beautiful Gower Peninsula, Gowerton Club Site is ideally placed to visit this 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. With beaches that are clean, sandy and safe for swimming and surfing, to stunning costal and country walks the Gower is a must for all walkers and water sports enthusiast. Family friendly Oxwich, Caswell Bays, and the fabulous Rhossili, (voted one of the best beaches in Europe) are worth particular mention on this beautiful coast. This site really is the Gateway to the Gower, the perfect location for exploring the peninsula and around Swansea Bay.

Although the immaculately kept Gowerton Club Site has its own treasures, you'll also find plenty to see inland. Use the caravan park as your starting point and head over to the Vale of Neath, to Aberdulais Falls, and see how the waters have powered numerous industries over three hundred years. Then on to Craig Gwladys where you can walk the forest trails and climb the steep ascent with the hangliders soaring above you. On again to Pont Nedd Fechan, from where you can see nine major waterfalls on four rivers, then into the Brecon Beacons National Park. With national cycle paths close by bike riders will find the site an ideal place to stay with the nearby Millennium path a particular favourite.

Visitors to Gowerton Club Site can now access all the facilities at the Elba Playing fields through newly installed security gates, with football and rugby pitches, dog walks, skateboard and BMX ramps and safe access to Gowerton village and local shops.

Swansea is a short bus ride away with its famous indoor market, marina, National Waterfront Museum and shops and cafes. The local, motor home friendly, Swansea Park and Ride is also close by.

Local fish and chip are available on site on Fridays and Saturdays (please contact the site staff for further details) and there are plenty of quality, good value places to eat in the area. Whether it's water sports or walking, lazing on the beach or sightseeing Gowerton Club Site has it all.

Peaceful site in great location

We stayed here in early September for three nights. I cannot agree with other reviewers that the road was noisy, and we were pitched near the entrance! This is a large spacious site spread over three fields divided by trees. There are more grass than hard standings so first come first served if you have a motorhome like us. Staff very friendly and helpful. However only one facilities block with 5 showers in ladies but far more toilets - why?! Often a queue for the showers in the morning. two dish washing area, one inside with 4 sinks, the other a semi-covered outdoor one. Good laundry and CDP. Nearby there is a petrol station with an excellent Tesco Express supermarket which is within walking distance from the rear gate of the site. Excellent base for exploring the Gower, We hired a car through the club for three days and it only cost £49! The access road to the site from the traffic lights is narrow at first so care should be taken. Large motorhomes should ensure they follow the directions avoiding the low bridge.

Fantastic First Trip

This was our very first caravan trip. We had picked it up that morning! On arrival we said it was our first time and was shown what to do with regards to the electric. The lady behind the counter was very pleasant and very helpful. The site was very tidy and well kept and the toilet block was very impressive. We weren’t looking to do any real activities as we just wanted to start camping with our caravan so didn’t go outside of the site. We will definitely go back to this site many times I suspect in the future, thanks for a great first experience.

clean pleasant site ideal for Gower visit but road noise.

This is well situated to tour the Gower Peninsula and like all club sites there was a great welcome, helpful staff and very clean. There is a good cycle path from near to the site to Swansea and the bay area through a lovely wooded valley. However, the road noise from both the VERY close main A road and depending on wind direction the motorway, which continues all night. This unfortunately spoilt our stay as it was very intrusive (we do live in sleepy herefordshire with little traffic). In addition the roads around Gowerton are very busy and walking from site requires one to walk along them with no footpaths for a good mile or so before getting onto proper footpaths (we wanted to walk along the north/west Gower way). We would not return but for the reasons that the club has no control over

Relaxed and clean site

We stayed here for a couple of nights in September on the recommendation of a friend. We were disappointed with the location of the site as it was close to busy and noisy main roads with a train track running along the side of the site. The trains didn’t bother us but there was constant traffic noise. We took a local waymarked walk on the second day but found it difficult to follow as the instructions were poor and not enough markers were present. The area was also very bad for mosquitoes and made it difficult to sit out during the evening. When we came to leave, there was a problem with our motorhome and we had to wait for a breakdown service past the 12 o’clock deadline. This was not a problem as the site was at least half empty and the staff were very good about it. We are unlikely to return to this site because although the site itself is well kept and has a nice atmosphere, the local area is just not nice enough and the traffic is horrible.

Breakfast on the beach!

We went to Gowerton for 6 nights in August. The site was clean and the wardens friendly, we are relatively new to Motorhoming and have never taken our vehicle off-site once pitched up so they gave great advice and lent us a sign to reserve our pitch. The beaches they recommended were wonderful, including Rhossili and Oxwich where as promised we could easily park our motorhome with no problems (we got there early, parked up and cooked breakfast!). The town was a bit disappointing but there is a new tapas bar open and there is a pub on the traffic lights called The Commercial (although we never went in). We visited the Harvester which is not too far away. The train station is very handy and on a rainy Wednesday we got the train to Cardiff where there are lots of shops and restaurants. We will definitely return and visit this area again.
