Why stay here ...

An easy drive to the beautiful Gower Peninsula, Gowerton Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 Campsite 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 Club Campsite has it all.

Wonderful welcome

Gowerton Club Campsite
We were so happy to receive such a warm friendly and welcome to the site from a warden who really wanted to help us to to enjoy our stay and be near to our our friends. The warden even popped our gate keys over to us as we were eating our lunch. Well above and beyond her job description. The site was immaculate and the short grass was helpful when walking across the lawns covered in dew. The un-mown borders helped to encourage wildlife and the robin was so charming as it sat on our guy lines and sang to us all. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so memorable. I recommend the Contented Sole if you fancy take away fish and chips.

So glad we stayed there!

Gowerton Club Campsite
We chose Gowerton site, initially, for its location - easy to get to and from the road network for south Wales, and also the Gower Peninsula. However, we were delighted with it as a site, simply to spend the day there. It was really lovely, well laid out, very clean, and had an open feel but with different sections. Even though it got busy, towards the weekend, it never felt crowded. Bonuses - lovely little town of Gowerton - Station 86 has the best breakfasts; the Pizza Ria on Thursday (they did a Gluten free Pizza); easy access to Llanelli, the Mumbles, and the Botanic Gardens. The wardens were helpful and friendly, and overall, we would recommend it either as a stay-location, or as a base to explore. The CMC book mentions train noise, but it was very minimal, and not constant; if that worries you, stay on the site away from the line, we could hardly hear it there. It's a great place to stay!

Wonderful wardens

Gowerton Club Campsite
Very warm welcome from Nicky. We had a glorious week of weather marred only by my husband being ill and needing to go to hospital to see a GP. Nicky and Mike could not have been more helpful and supportive. Thank you. We ended up spending a lot of time on site and less time exploring the area than we would have liked. We had a peaceful quiet break in very pleasant surroundings.

Very handy site being within 40 minutes from home.I have been here on many occasions and found it convenient for access to the Gower peninsula and also local shops.and pubs within walking distance. Nicely layer out with both sheltered and sunny spacious pitches. What now makes this site have the X factor are the new wardens. We were greeted with a smile( sadly not always the case) and a informative briefing.During our stay we were helped in a friendly manner as to the location of local cycle paths, which are wonderful. This really made our short stay special. Thanks to Mike and Nicky. Wardens take note, you really can make a difference with a smile
