Only 16 miles from Swansea and on the Gower Peninsula, Pitton Cross Caravan and Camping Park is ideal for walking, surfing, hang-gliding and swimming. It’s also close to the Welsh Coastal Path.
This family run campsite is open all year and has 30 flat hardstanding pitches – and if you want an electric hook-up, say when booking, especially in the summer months. Motorhomes, campervans, touring caravans and tents are all welcome. This is also a dog friendly campsite, although there's a small extra charge for dogs. Guests are asked to keep their four-legged friends under control and to clear up after them.
There are separate shower and toilet blocks for men and women, plus disabled facilities and a parent and toddler room. The campsite has a laundrette and a place to do your washing up. There's also a shop on site that sells groceries and other everyday essentials, as well as fishing equipment, camping and caravan accessories, Welsh gifts, walking sticks and much more – it sells kites, too, and Gower was recently voted the best place for kite-flying in the UK. There's a tourist information point at the shop as well. Children staying at Pitton Cross Caravan and Camping Park will enjoy time at the playground.
There's plenty to see and do on the Gower Peninsula, including a number of beaches. Enjoy the golden sands of Rhossili, or head to Mewslade, which you can reach from Pitton Cross Caravan and Camping Park using a footpath across the fields, and Fall Bay. Or how about Ramsgrove, a rocky cove, where even in the summer you can go and have it to yourself, if you're lucky!
On your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Wales, the natural beauty of the area gives you lots of things to see and do. Indeed, the Gower Peninsula was the very first place in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and it really is a glorious, unspoilt place. Go walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching, fishing, climbing or, as we said before, hang-gliding, swimming and surfing. Whatever you do, make sure you enjoy the lovely, local environment. The Mumbles is also about half an hour from this campsite.
You're about a 40-minute drive from Swansea at Pitton Cross Caravan and Camping Park, so despite the perhaps remote feel of Gower, everything you can need is nearby. Swansea of course has lots of shops, as well as bars, restaurants and pubs. The birthplace of Dylan Thomas is worth a visit, as is the marina.
Rather nearer, around 20 minutes from this site, is the village of Llangennith, very much a place for surfers, but you might enjoy a drink at the King's Head. There's also Oxwich, a quarter of an hour from this campsite. Here you will find the popular Oxwich Bay, the parish church of St Illtyd's and a castle.
Weobley Castle is just 20 minutes from this campsite, a fortified manor house that overlooks the Loughor estuary. It is open to the public, however dogs are not permitted here.
Lots of walking both coastal and inland and a range of water sports Mewslade Bay and Rhossili Downs with a view over the Bristol Channel to North Devon and inland to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.
