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.

Enjoying the Gower from a CS

Gowerton was initially our post lockdown choice, our first choice had to be cancelled! Gowerton phoned two weeks before our stay to say we could not pitch as they were flooded! It seemed like a fated time! We then managed to secure our booking, eventually for a six night stay. (I assume through cancellations). Family joining us later in the week. What a great choice we made. So easy to travel to, a large, well managed site and within easy reach of the whole of the Gower peninsula. During this unprecedented time, emotions from everyone are heightened, not least when the site is still struggling with wet grass pitches near to the side road from high tide and winds blown in at the beginning of the estuary! Staff were overwhelmed with this years events, so a little understanding and compassion goes a long way! On arrival, we missed out on the last hard standing pitch but found a dryer grass pitch under trees and near the site road. The following morning, once vacated, we pitched on hard standing and settled for the duration. A similar little shuffle from a family member on their arrival and we were all good and next to one another! Bonus! Staff went out of their way to accommodate and with a little flexibility on our part, all was well. Plenty to do; A great cycle ride from the site to Mumbles, riding through the old valley rail route 4. Fantastic beaches and headland to explore within a short drive away and nearby amenities to stock up and refuel! I loved the site so much, I have booked a two week stay next year! I need to explore the other side of the estuary! I also want to return to the areas we visited. It will be via regular public transport next time, as we have a motorhome. Just loved it. FYI; Everyone os responsible for their own hygiene and cleanliness of what they use. Leave areas as you would expect to find them. The wardens are working under extreme circumstances and are going above and beyond to keep sites open for us all to enjoy. Gowerton keep doing what you are doing and we will see you next year. Thank you

What a Pleasant Site in a Great Location

Stayed at this excellent Club Site en-route to and from Tenby. This was our first visit to Gowerton and what a pleasant welcome we received from Chris, one of the Wardens, on our arrival. All was explained very clearly and efficiently. We quickly found a favourable pitch, although there are many pleasant pitches which are mostly very-well maintained, except for a couple of grass areas where inconsiderate Caravanners have selfishly not lifted their ground sheets regularly, resulting in large bare patches in the grass. The toilet blocks were always very clean, including the showers that were obviously individually being used more often, due to Corvid social distancing requirements. We walked to the Local shops including the nearby Tesco Express and drove observing some of the spectacular local scenery, plus enjoyed some great meals locally. Summary: A Very well laid-out site, maintained and tendered by the current wardens and we will definitely visit again. Thank you for such an enjoyable stays!

Lovely site in stunning area

We stayed at this site for five nights. We received a very warm welcome - usual Caravan Club standards of large pitches and the shower/toilet blocks were open and immaculate. The access road was single lane but we did not have any problems, although we did not travel in rush hour! The main road had cycle paths on either side, so no problem when out walking. Excellent cut through into the playing park where dogs are welcome - they only ask that people clear up after them. This area has the third highest tidal range in the world, and it is quite interesting to watch the river outside the campsite flowing one way and then the other. This road does flood at most high tides. We visited several areas of this stunning coastline, including Three Cliffs Bay and Rhossili where the beaches were so huge you barely bumped into a soul. Our collie had the time of his life racing around and chasing seagulls. Mewslade Bay near Rhossili is well worth a visit just to see the tidal range. Thoroughly recommend this site, and would love to return.

good location for touring the gower penninsula

This site was in a great location for touring the gower. The site is very well kept and the pitches a great size. The dog walk is amazing , one of the best we have seen on a caravan site and it’s important to us with 4 dogs. We didn’t use the facilities as although they were open we used our own. The wardens were all very nice and had a chat with you nearly every day. The only issue we had was freight trains thundering through in the early hours of the morning. But the site can’t help that. We just pushed our ear plugs on further 😄. Would definitely return.
