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.

Beautifully maintained site

Gowerton Club Campsite
First of, this is a beautifully maintained site, with spotless facilities and lovely kept pitches. Staff are courteous, helpful and efficient. Location is good for Swansea and the surrounding area and it is very peaceful with a convenience store and a garage within walking distance. The main negative is that there is only one set of facilities near the main office, including rubbish bins and recycling, meaning a long walk for those pitches at the edge of the site. I realise this would hard to fix in terms of showers and toilets, but some additional bins by the second set of water taps would be much better. Unfortunately this means we'd be unlikely to stay again, but for those who don't mind a long walk to the showers this is a great site.

Highly recommended second visit cannot wait to go again. Wardens Brilliant

Gowerton Club Campsite
This was our second visit. At first with grandkids this time with our two Dalmatians. This site is clean and well maintained the wardens friendly, helpful and work with a smile. Facilities are kept very clean and grounds well maintained. We used a hard standing pitch which was very large accommodating car van and awning across the pitch. Grass pitches looked ample as well. Large dog walk available as well as a sports field by the site. Easy bike routes to the mumbles and to Llanelli bay. Will definitely visit again.

Excellent site but blighted by traffic noise

Gowerton Club Campsite
We stayed on spacious grass pitch 37 fromJuly27 until Aug3. We found that the site was immaculately kept and any staff we had contact with were always helpful and friendly. It was our first visit to the Gower area and we were pleasantly surprised how beautiful and uncrowded it was once you went west from the site with fabulous beaches and coast walks, we managed 80k during our stay and on some walks we hardly met a soul, they mostly congregate around the ends of the beaches that have the facilities and food. Gowerton is a typically urban suburb of a very busy Swansea, which brings me to the main gripe about the site (which nobody can do anything about), traffic noise 24/7. Unfortunately during our stayed the winds we predominantly in the quarter from wnw to easterly so all of the background noise from the urban area plus the railway line immediately to the north of the site, plus the main road to Llanelli running parallel to it and the M4 just beyond that made it very intrusive. It didn’t stop at night either so take some ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper. When the wind moved to the sw it was considerably quieter! The only other gripe, which I’m assuming is a temporary measure, is the fact that there are no rubbish/recycling bins around the site, everything has to be taken to the main bins by the entrance. Ok if your pitch is at the front but a long walk from other parts of the site which leads to people blocking the entrance on their way out (there’s no room to pull over out of the way) with occasional tailbacks beyond the exit barrier, I’m assuming the barriers have sensors to prevent them closing with a vehicle still underneath, if not the consequences of damage claims against the club could be expensive! Non of this would stop us visiting this site again.

Lovely, clean and quiet

Gowerton Club Campsite
We have returned to this site as it’s well located and clean. It really is spotless. We have had a couple of niggles which have prevented full 5 ticks. The bins are located a long way from many pitches and you end up putting rubbish in car and dropping as you leave. We also have found the staff to be very serious, don’t get me wrong they run a very tight ship but they are not of happy disposition. Staff do not seem friendly they are not rude they just give information (rules) in a very dry and direct way. Some of the rules we found to be a bit petty E.g today we stopped to chat to a fellow camper, no other vehicles coming, turned engine off and pulled to side (in car and only stopped for 2 mins) and we were told to please move on. There really was no harm with us chatting and being sociable. We also got reminded that dogs must be on a line no longer than 2m, again not a massive deal but there was no smile or any friendly chat. On arrival it was a very brief and formal chat of what to do. We just feel that if people are working in hospitality then they should be more chatty and friendly but maybe that’s our opinion but normally it’s lovely to chat to staff and find out about the area etc. Basically if you like a clean site and it’s in a good location for you it’s great. For us we would come back but we may try another site to see if this is the ethos post covid on all sites.

Clean, Quiet, Helpful Wardens

Gowerton Club Campsite
We stayed for 3 nights in our caravan & slept really well as our grass pitch was very quiet backing onto some houses. We found the level walk to the tesco express with our 2 dogs very convenient. The ehu /electric hook up was reliable(we have stayed on other sites where it wasnt working). The warden was polite & friendly & we tried to remember/follow the extensive instructions on etiquette/site rules. There was no extra charge for dogs or electric which was a surprising bonus. We would stay here again as it was a level site with easy access to the many gower beaches. We particularly enjoyed visiting arthurs stone, whitegrove beach for a long dog walk & swim. We also enjoyed visiting Oxwhich Bay Hotel for a cooked breakfast & beach walk. Both were under 30 mins drive from this site. The showers/toilets/vanity sinks were very clean & the bins were quite a long walk from our pitch but as we wanted a quiet spot this was to be expected. The no entry signs & one way system could do with better signage such as a sign with an arrow & list of pitch numbers as we unnecessarily drove round the wrong areas a couple of times as they looked so similar. The security was good on this site & the air seemed very clean & even when it got rainy & windy the site felt well sheltered by the abundant mature trees.
