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.

Pleasant site with friendly wardens

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
This site is well situated for visiting the delights of the Gower, though Gowerton itself is not particularly inspiring. We found a wonderful pub, serving good food, in nearby Three Crosses, 'The Poundffald' - highly recommended. Our last day was marred by a private party just outside the site boundary, playing outrageously loud '80s music well into the evening, until the police arrived. We moved our caravan, with the support of the wardens, to the opposite end of the site for the sake of our sanity, and the wardens phoned us the next day to let us know that they had called the police themselves following our complaint. All in all, a friendly, smaller-scale site with lots to recommend it, especially the welcoming and helpful wardens.

An 'okay' site

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
We stayed here for 2 nights on our 'tour of Wales' and received a warm and friendly welcome from the warden, who was helpful and pleasant. We requested two adjacent pitches so that we could camp with our friends and he kindly directed us to a number of apparently vacant ones. Unfortunately, without the knowledge of the warden it seemed, a number of nicely positioned pitches appeared to have been reserved using pitch markers stating 'in use' which prevented us from using them. Despite this, they remained vacant for the entire time of our stay. This was somewhat frustrating and annoying and IMO ought to be investigated by the Club. The site is pleasant and open with plenty of hard-standings (which was essential for us due to some VERY heavy rain). Unfortunately, it is quite near a busy main road and a railway line which meant we were frequently troubled by traffic noise of one sort or another. The Toilet block/facilities are well appointed and clean but there are insufficient numbers of toilet stalls and showers for a site of this size. I would imagine there are long queues at the busier times of the year, so best to avoid unless you have on-board facilities. Covid regulations are in force but are not so 'in your face' as to make you feel uncomfortable (unlike some other Welsh sites we have visited recently). Unfortunately, the local interpretation of the rules has resulted in the closure of all of the rubbish bins at the service points around the site, necessitating a long walk to the reception area to dispose of your rubbish. We have not seen this anywhere else in Wales and I really don't think it should be happening.

Jewel in the crown

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
Well run site by wardens who do everything to make your stay special. Location is at The Gateway to Gower. Would be used more if open longer because Gower is used 12 months of the year. Well done Gowerton.

Nice site

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
We stayed for 3 nights in September. Weather was good during our stay and we chose a hard standing pitch (number 26) which was in full sun. There was a bit of road and train noise but didn’t really disturb us. There is only 1 toilet block with 4 showers, although we didn’t experience any queuing they were often all in use. The block is dated, showers are small although the toilets and showers were very clean. We found the warden who checked us in to be very friendly and informative. T.V. Signal was good and Wi-fi was o.k. Location is o.k. Not too many amenities nearby, I think you need to use the site as a base for driving to beaches and other areas.

Excellent Wardens

Gowerton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site
We’re a bit dubious about visiting this site after reading some of the reviews about the wardens. I have to say the young man that checked me in was the best I have ever experienced on a club site. He was excellent, friendly & helpful and all the other wardens were also helpful & friendly. The only problem people seemed to be having was not being able to get the electric working (you needed to twist it), which is not common on these sites. A sticker on it would do the trick. You are handed an envelope when you arrive with all the local information you need (no not bus times, really?! Use your phone!). Lots of lovely local walks. Great site, great wardens. Well done team.
