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.

Lovely wardens & spacious pitches

Spent 10 days here arriving Tuesday after May bank holiday but even with half term families we had a lovely spacious pitch. The staff were lovely and always happy to help. The site is on the sustrams ncr 4 which gave us miles of predominately off road cycling. We cycled down to mumbles on two occasions, along to llanelli and up the swiss valley on another and even along the coast to check out the cmc site in Pembury! Llanelli is only a short drive with a large retail park providing a large tesco extra in addition to many other shops, all with free parking. Gowerton has several golf courses within reach for the better player and an excellent driving range with 9 hole beginners couse where you can also get excellent tuition. If eating out we would recommend the Harvester and the Rake and Riddle. Paprika provide an excellent Indian take away! The countryside and area around the estuary is beautiful and the people we met during our stay genuinely friendly. A lovely holiday, I know we will be back!

Such a friendly and accommodating arrival

We stayed here just for a one night on our way to West Wales - such a friendly welcome from the lady on reception, although we were early she didn't turn us away but instead made us feel very welcome. The site was spotless. Will definitely return.

lovely level site

First time to the Gower Peninsular, so first time at this site. Its a lovely, quiet, level site. Good enclosed dog walk just off the site and also a large dog friendly playing field accessed from the site, through a locked gate (key attached to barrier key) which takes you to a garage and Tesco express. Fish & chips can be ordered from the reception area and collected at 6pm on Friday and Saturday evenings. There a couple of nice pubs, for food, within about 5 minutes drive from the site. The Rake and Riddle is particularly nice, especially for families. The site facilities were clean. However from our pitch, at the far end of the site, the facilities block is a long way away. There is only one facilities block, with just 5 showers. This is on a site that has 128 touring pitches. There was a smaller block, immediately adjoining the main one, but as the doors were kept locked I have no idea what was in there. Luckily we do not stay at peak times, but on the Saturday that we were leaving (BH) the site was busy, with an inevitable queue for the showers. You need to be up early to be beat the queue and the cleaning lady who arrives at 10.20am that advises you to finish off. The site is accessed via a narrowish lane, over a narrow bridge. Units arrived and were checked in well in advance of the 12 noon booking in time, which could cause a problem if two units meet at the bridge. Luckily the weather was extremely kind, dry sunny weather every day. There are some lovely dog friendly beaches all within 30 minutes drive from the site. Oxwich Bay is a must. There is a breathtaking view of Rhossilli Bay as you walk along to cliff tops to the old coastguard look out building, the walk down to beach is not too bad but you need to be quite fit for the walk back up!

Peaceful and good CMC team

We stayed here in lovely weather in our caravan in May 2018. The site is green, shaded if you want it, with a mix of grass and hardstanding. It is well placed for all the Gower beaches. We met some of the CMC team and they were all very friendly and helpful.

Super Site

1st time to this site. Only stayed 2 nights and wish we had longer. Grass areas still not fit for use but plenty of choice available on hard standings. All facilities good, staff pleasant and helpful. As long as you read info provided, site is easy to find but do not think you know best and try another apparent route. Will be back
