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. Cardiff with all its tourist attractions, shopping and restaurants is easily accessible from the local train station which is a 20 minute walk from the site. The train journey to central Cardiff takes just over an hour, so treat yourselves to a day out in the Welsh capital.

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.

Disapointing holiday

Upon arrival we were greeted by the most miserable female warden we have ever met on a club site, we paid in vouchers and £1.80 in cash, she did nothing but moan about the cash but handled the vouchers with no problem so whats the difference?, whilst dealing with my wife another chap arrived to book in and his welcome by the warden was "get out and wait your turn only one at a time" he walked out and was not to pleased Considering she was so particular about cash and covid regs its a big shame this did not extend to the facilities block, in all our years using club sites the toilets were the worst we have seen, In the gents the hand dryer was broken and for 2 days there was no paper towel, the hand sanitizing was empty also for a couple days and the general cleanliness was bad to say the least. My wife said similar to the ladies toilets as they needed a good clean plus there was a instance where there was no toilet paper. As they have most of the shower cubicles and toilets locked up surely the ones that are open require cleaning more often due to the use they are getting as the site was fairly full. A few days into our holiday our minature shih tzu's dog lead broke and he walked to a caravan next but one to us and as we quickly spotted what had happened, it was no cause for alarm but the same female warden took it as another option to have a go at us which she did with avengance. She got told that if she was as quick to maintain the site/facilities block as she was to moan at everyone the place would look decent and covid safe. All she could say is if you don't like what you see go in reception and fill a complaint form out. Surprisingly not long after this the wardens were out cleaning the facilities block and they were spotted around more frequently. Later that day in our support a fellow caravaner came to us and said she deserved what she got as she asked for it with her attitude as apparently a few people had commented about the general state if the site and attitude. We have stayed at this site before and had a lovely holiday but after this time I don't think we will return for a long time which is a shame because of the beautiful location of the site.

Can't blame the site for the weather

We arrived in the rain on Saturday 15 August. The check in was quick and easy and the lady later rang us to advise of a hard standing becoming available. This was very welcome and appreciated because a motorhome on a soggy grass pitch, with more rain forecasted, is not a good idea. Because of Covid 19 the shower/toilet block was limited to a maximum of three people at any one time. With a site of this size, having only one toilet block, is a bit tight at the best of times but under the current restrictions it makes life very frustrating when queuing in the rain to use the facilities. As for the location we were disappointed, we knew that the site was not on the coast and we would need to drive to a beach but the town had little to offer in the way of eateries of bars. The one pub we did find was closed. This meant that we had to use the car every day/evening if we wished to go off site. Without Covid and days and days of rain our review may have been a little more positive.

Good site

First time for us at this site despite living local. Only our second outing in our new van after a 30 year break from owning a caravan. On arrival staff were extremely helpful in giving us all the required information on the site. Well located for exploring the Gower without the hassle of towing your caravan through the Gower. Cannot comment on toilet/shower block due to closure due to Covid-19. Plenty of shops locally. Will be returning to this lovely site.

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.
