Ah, the Gower – coastal jewel in Wales' already resplendent crown. It'll come as no surprise to anyone whose visited the region that this was the first ever designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It will also come as no surprise that this part of the world has a plethora of camping options on offer. From wild coastal sites to glamping breaks (where luxuriousness is matched by price) to the holiday-park-opolis, clogged to bursting with unsightly statics. Thankfully, Greenways of Gower finds a pleasing medium that's just perfect for seasoned and first-time campers alike.

The well-kempt field has space for a maximum of 180 tents, though, rest assured, the owners are sure to maintain the peaceful atmosphere by not admitting anywhere near this amount. Sure you'll see a scattering of the aforementioned privately-owned statics on your way in, however these are segregated from the main elevated camping field and won't infringe on the stunning sea views.    

As you'd expect with this kind of well-established operation,  facilities are more than adequate. There's an onsite bar and should your little ones have their fill of playing ball games in the spacious field, there's an adventure playground and games lounge with all manner of amusements. At its heart, this family-run campsite is run with families firmly in mind.

For mums and dads, there's.. well, just look around! This being the Gower, the horizon offers some stunning vistas over Oxwich Bay and out to the Celtic Sea. The bay itself is a popular spot for bathers and watersports, though you're sure to find a relaxed spot amongst the sand dunes at the eastern end. Further afield, nearby Oystermouth Castle is just one of the many attractions to visit in this most richly historical of Welsh regions.

 All in all, this tidy and welcoming campsite is ideal for both peace and quiet, beachside fun and family days out – all easily achievable from this beautiful cliffside base.

Fantastic camp site

From the moment we arrived to when we left we felt relaxed, happy our children (aged 4 & 6) were safe and could enjoy themselves and delighted with the cleanliness of the whole site including showers and toilet blocks. The space is excellent, there’s a little park for children an you’re in the Gower. Can’t wait to go in 2019.

Noisy and cramped

This site has no designated pitches and they appear to accept bookings regardless of the space available which means if you arrive after work you have to squeeze next to another camper/tent in a less than ideal spot. The cost was high considering that you couldn't be guaranteed a decent space and there was no electric provided. The shower block would have been fine if kept clean, had sensible drainage to prevent pooling of water, and had adjustable temperature controls for the showers which were very hot. Most campers won't enjoy good views when it is busy and you can't get to more scenic parts of the site. This is a family site which seems to attract large groups who pitch up en masse and play music. Despite warnings to the contrary campers were having fires directly on the ground leaving the ground burnt but there was no intervention from the staff. On the plus side you can walk to Oxwich beach but bear in mind it is steep. I would only recommend staying at such a site out of season and if they reduced their prices.

Effortless camping

We have stopped at this site twice. The first time was during hot weather and the whole world and his wife seemed to camping here. Unfortunately, there were lots of groups that wanted to drink and be noisy with loud music being played late into the night. The toilets were cleaned regularly but unfortunately there would appear to to have been a lot of untidy people who visited the toilet block and left tissue paper and rubbish on the floor. 

Despite this my husband liked it so we returned a month later when the weather was cooler (part of the changeable British Summer)! The camp site was quieter with fewer tents. The site itself is well maintained and offer stunning views of Oxwich Bay. The Bay itself is beautiful and when the weather is good is as nice if not nicer than a lot of beaches abroad.

Back at the campsite, there are plentiful toilets, showers and basins. There also several wash up areas and a shared chest freezer. There are also paid washing machines.

The site is controlled at the front entrance by a barrier which you pay for a returnable deposit of £5 for fob. 

A short walk away is Oxwich castle and Oxwich point.

If you are interested in wildlife there is the Nature Reserve in the immediate surrounding area.

There is a club house on site as well.

Would return here but not in hot weather.
