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.

Disappointed

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
Unfortunately the negative by far outweighed the positives. Just not enough facilities! There is an expectation you will use your own toilet..... what if you haven’t got one? This needs to be clear in advance of arrival.You can have 60 000 at Wembley but only 3 people in the toilet block at one time...There only 3 toilets and two showers in the women’s and Men’s anyway..Also all facilities close every day from 10.15-11.30....... no alternatives are available. This caused us not just significant inconvenience but also anxiety and stress. We don’t have facilities and alway check that toilets etc are available before we book. Even if you have your own surely you should be able to use on site facilities that you are paying for?The wrist band system was unnecessary and just didn’t work! Why should people queue for a toilet when 2 are free? I saw a child in considerable distress as 2 people were having showers and she was too scared to go in. Not acceptable These COVID restrictions were completely over the top! Even in non COVID times there probably not enough toilets considering the number of pitches. I raised this with one staff member who said they were just obeying the rules. If this is the case we think the Caravan Club needs to do some explaining.... Others have commented on staff rudeness, especially the woman. Yes I witnessed this first hand several times. But at other times she was very friendly and helpful. I also witnessed a much younger male member being very aggressive and rude to another customer because she had dared to go into to the empty/ clean toilet 15 minutes before it was due to reopen. His behaviour was inappropriate and unprofessional. Also no adequate recycling available. No idea why? Considering this site is prone to flooding (not the staff’s fault obviously) more hard core pitches would be helpful........ we saw one caravan get stuck in the mud.......... Site has great potential...... but needs more toilets! At present this issue is crucial. Perhaps a bit of training on good customer service for some staff as well. We are key workers and I work in frontline customer service. COVID has been a terrible time for every one as we all know........but it doesn’t excuse what was going on on this site!

Excellent site... But

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
Excellent stay at Gowerton site. Excellent friendly wardens. Supermarket handy as we are motorhomes, but one thing this site lacks is more hardstanding as the grass pitches suffer flooding with heavy rain. Site recommended as central to the Gower and good transport links, ie train station and on main bus route.

A week at Gowerton

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
What can we say about our stay at Gowerton!First the weather was not good,the grass pitches became waterlogged and water came up through the awning carpet.The wardens decided to remove all recycling bins to farthest part of site hence no recycling took place,rubbish held outside vans and rats were seen on several occasions.Food vans ie fish&chips banned by wardens.Only one facility bloc and the wardens closed over 50% of these 2 showers,toilets,washrooms,hence queues of up to 1/2 hour only 3 bands available.Attitude of wardens poor and aggressive at times especially when complaints flooded in,they said any more complaints and he would shut the whole facilities down.outside dish wash closed but inside open,bizarre.cleaning of facilities 10.15 to 11.30,this was regimental to the extent of refusing entry 5mins before sending at least one person to tesco to use their loos.Subsequently bands disappeared over night and for a day the system worked well using common sense,yet more closure threats with a signs to the contrary .Summing up,could be a good site if the wardens were replaced,2nd bloc built and grass pitch drainage sorted.

Really helpful staff in a crisis

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
We cannot fault the staff at this site. We had booked in for a week but sadly discovered a major problem with our caravan when we were setting up. The team gave us details of a mobile engineer (although unfortunately he could not help ) and were very helpful when we had no option but to cancel the rest of our stay. It’s a lovely site - well laid out and near excellent beaches so we’ll be back. This site is well managed by a lovely team.

Only 2 showers and 2 toilets in the Men's block. Not sufficient for over 120 pitches. This place needs another toilet block. There are no bins at the service points. You must put your rubbish in an industrial bin by the entrance. This site is very good for cycling with an excellent route to the Mumnles. Apart from the woman the staff were friendly and helpful.
