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.

Better weather than last year.

Another successful stay at Gowerton. Easy access from M4, narrow bridge immediately before site access on the right but nothing that causes a problem if you exercise caution and use your eyes. We enjoyed some stunning weather and a few good trips to Mumbles and it’s beaches. You really do need a car for this site (or a cycle if you prefer) to enjoy what the Gower can offer. Yet again our pitch was visited by a four legged friend who obviously didn’t keep its owner on a lead as it failed to pick up its owners poo!!!!! Why oh why do dogs bring their owners if they aren’t going to adhere to simple rules of common decency. That said it is a great site.

Standard operating procedure!!

I agree with the majority, it is a wonderful site, clean, pretty, especially impressed by the dog walk, plenty of shade there! Can't really blame the wardens for too much sunshine. The only let done was the male warden who accused us of "lieing" about our barrier card which we had never been given. The next morning sure enough his wife confirmed that she had forgotten to give us the card, he was present at the time but failed to apologise for his behaviour. "Standard operating procedure" we're his three favourite words that he kept trotting out when he was telling us what liers we were the previous evening! Sadly there is always one, and he was it. His wife on the other hand was brilliant. I suspect this wasn't the first hole that she had extracated him from, nor I suppose the last. Take him out of the equation and it's another 5 star review.

SMITH FAMILY VISIT

Visited some weeks ago but only now reviewing the site. Had a really nice welcome from the warden who used to be at Brecon and gave us a genuine hug as soon as she saw us, what a way to start your weekend. Spotlessly clean site by very hard working staff, flower display has a great chance of winning something this year. Rake and Riddle PH good as the play area is great for kids and food good quality and reasonably priced. Only 25 minutes from Swansea leisure Centre with great pool splash facilities and 45 minutes from beaches so very good location. Our only slight gripe is that the onsite play area could be a little bigger but really everything else about the site is fab especially the staff.

Lovely site...

Very well maintained with that extra effort to please site users, like the fabulous display of plants at the entrance. Immaculately looked after and spotlessly clean. Staff particularly helpful, even down to bring our fish and chips to our caravan when we were a bit late collecting them. Nice large pitches and good selection of hard-standings or green sites, and a playground for the kids. There is a very short stretch (about 500m) of very narrow road from the main junction to the site, and with a nasty stone bridge that is almost blind on access. It just means you have to be slow and cautious. Don't miss the site entrance (on the right) or you will be committed to another very narrow bridge with only four inches of clearance on either side. Luckily I have a small van, but you may not be so fortunate! Overall, well worth a visit to an area surrounded by lots to see.

Bad Roads, Noisy Site

Recently returned from a visit to Gowerton, lovely site but very little shade and in the recent weather ment that our 9 night stay was cut short and we returned home 4 days early, staff where friendly and the site was clean and tidy although I could not understand why only one shower block was unlocked and used a situation that often caused queues to use the showers. The site its self was quite noisy, road noise and a nearby railway line. The roads on the gower are bad,very narrow, "A" roads are narrow little more than a B road in England and the local "B" roads are more like a narrow single country track. If you like beaches then the gower is for you, note to the wise check the car parking availity we arrived at one beach after driving down a very narrow track only to be told there is no parking due to a land dispute 🙁.
