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.

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.

A great base from which to explore the Gower

Stayed her at the end of July 19, and the site was full but you would never have guessed it. We had one of the grass pitches where it was firm underfoot and plenty of space. The staff were really helpful especially as we arrived very late due to the inevitable delays on the M4. They saw us to our pitch and made sure we knew where everything was. Even at the end of July the site did not seem busy. There was only one morning that my wife had to wait to get a shower. The facilities were all clean with plenty of hot water. We were travelling with another couple but we saw plenty of younger families. There is plenty of space for kids to cycle around or play ball games without being on top of others. The site is well positioned for exploring the Gower, with nearly everywhere within 40 mins. We go to Rhossilli Bay within 25-30 mins....and you have to go to Rhossilli as it lives up to its reputation of one of the nicest beaches in the UK. Free parking if you are a National Trust member!! You are also only 20 mins from Three Cliffs Bay - another beautiful place. We will be going back to the site as there is more to do around the coast that we didn't this time and the site was great. Thanks for a great stay.

Again a lovely visit to a fabulous site

We have been here a lot in the past as we have family nearby. However the flower display by the warden's hut was amazing, this was the first time we have been at this time of year. So uplifting. The site is always clean, wardens really helpful, we have been here for 2 extended periods of time this year and still enjoyed the site. Locally the Rake and Riddle is good, however venture into Swansea to SA1 and there are some excellent restaurants. It only takes about 15 minutes to get there as long as you avoid rush hour. There are a couple of big Tescos within about a 15 minute drive , one in Llanelli combine it with a walk along the Millennium path and one at Forest Fach. The beaches are wonderful and although they take time to get there worth it to see the stunning scenery and in some cases massive expanses of sand which can take loads of people without feeling busy. Using the cycle track to Mumbles from the site was a fabulous experience - mostly off road and tarmacked, we also used the Millennium Track from the site, which has a heard surface although not all tarmac. The road noise is not a problem, people do have to get around!

Excellent site

Easy access from motorway. Helpful friendly wardens.Good pitches, well spaced. Showers etc were very good and never overcrowded. Excellent walking but be prepared for driving along some narrow country roads. Beautiful countryside and coastline. The walking book sold in Reception was very helpful, although some directions were occasionally ambiguous, which strangely added to the fun. Our five days with caravan were super and we will probably return.
