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.

Gower Peninsula beaches are fabulous

A lovely few days at this site, the usual high CAMC standard. The dog walk is great, a miniature nature reserve that our dog loved (walk it both ways to fully appreciate it). The beaches at Rhossili and Three Cliffs are about a 30 minute drive away but are so worth it. Our best walks were from Southgate (great coffee shop does tasty, reasonably priced lunches) along the coast path to Three Cliffs Bay - stunning views. Then from Hillend car park onto Rhossili beach and then right to Spaniard rocks. Go at low tide and climb up onto the rocky outcrop Burry Holms, the views of Rhossili from there are wonderful. Great site, wonderful beaches, would definitely recommend.

Great place to get about from

This was our first visit to the site at Gowerton, and we were not at all disappointed by it. I had read a review that did not give the site too high a rating, so was wondering what to expect, but was not too concerned, based on the performance of the other sites I have visited. My first contact with the site was to check as to whether or not I was going to be able to get there, as I drive a motorhome, and there is a warning in the handbook. My call was answered by one of the wardening team, who could not have been more welcoming or helpful. my fears were dispelled by her very positive attitude. On arrival the site was quite full, but the pitch provided a great space, and was well clear of other caravaners. After the weekend it went quite quiet, and I just though how many members were missing out on such a great site and location. As a motorhome owner, getting about can be a bit awkward, but the close location of the railway station meant that it was possible to get around easily, to much of South Wales. In fact I am considering revisiting the site to enjoy its location but also the rail links to much of South Wales, it is a great asset having this service close by. I did hire a car for a few days, and on one day explored the north side of the Gower, which is far less commercialised than some of the southern access of the peninsula. Visited the lovely Weobley Castle, and lunched at the Kings Head Langennith, some really great food. Also spent a day visiting Lanharne, an interesting castle and the Boat House, made famous by Dylan Thomas, the author of Under Milkwood. A great site to visit and a great team looking after the place for us members, will certainly be back again A great place to go, and a great team to go with it.

Easter break at Gowerton

Our first foray into using our new caravan was an easy and rewarding one. We were met by Chris with a warm welcome who answered many questions for a novice. We had a great stay with absolutely no problems on the site at all. It was well presented, all facilities working and just quite serene. Tesco Express fuel and shop just round the corner. The highlight of the stay was my daughter learnt to ride her bicycle and then virtually wore the tyres out around the site. Very good and safe for the kids. Just take note to approach the site from the correct side - easy access the correct way. Thanks Chris - well done.

Poor.

We had high hopes for our first stay on this site but were very disappointed so left early. First of all the access to this site is not for the faint hearted and we were not warned about the very narrow bridge which gave inches either side of our van! obviously this is not the site;s fault but really some form of warning should be made clear as it is nerve racking, even for the most experianced tower. The most concerning issue here was the warden, (not the assistant warden who was very helpful and pleasant.) I found her very rude and not in the least bit helpful. We had an issue with our key (which was rectified) therefore needed some advice as this area and site was new to us. This warden was very unhelpful, suggesting I leave my car outside the site not gauranteeing its security. We left early the next day. Needless to say it was a very unpleasant stay, we will never return there that's for sure. On the positive side there was a very nice Tesco Express just down the road!

Fifth stop of Wales roadtrip

Well this was our fifth stop of our two weeks hols now in a camper (Trigano Tribute) after over 20 years of caravanning! Unfortunately the rain was quite bad the day we were here and the site does get a bit soggy but the wardens were lovely and the dog walk amazing saw long tailed tits!! Sadly it was a one night only for us as we were booked on another site the day after as we would have liked to explore further and its certainly on our visit again list! Theres a Tesco within walking distance although we didnt try it as we had plenty of food with us but something to remember for next time!! We didnt have any problem finding the entrance aswell.
