General

  • Activity campsite overlooking Swansea Bay
  • Abseiling, orienteering, bushcraft, archery, canoeing, assault course
  • Free wifi

It's really just as well there are spectacular vistas from Clyne Farm Centre overlooking Swansea Bay and a couple of miles from the Gower beaches – for you'll likely want to sit and stare at the scenery while recovering from whatever activities you've been up to that day.

This is a site for active sorts: the farm surrounding the campsite has been used by keen Scout and Guide groups since before World War II, and these days the centre attached to the campsite can see you sorted for a dizzying array of outdoor options.

The activities on offer at Clyne Farm Centre include horse riding, archery, gorge walking, indoor climbing, body boarding, surfing, Segway racing, mountain biking, outdoor survival courses' and 'the muddiest assault course in the world – as we say, you'll likely want to sit and stare at the scenery of an evening while you recover.

The campsite itself is nicely spacious – the Clyne Farm Centre team limit the number of tents on site at any time so things don't feel overcrowded – and has a pick of pitches in either the main camping field, or the woodland area accessed via a steepish stone drive through fields. Don't fret if you get rained out either, a stone barn is on site for emergency rainy use.

A decent range of facilities is on site including newly added solar -powered shower rooms with communal and family rooms, loos, changing rooms and – possibly our Clyne Farm fave – a washing-up room in a restored railway wagon; the hot water here is solar-powered too.

The main office building comes equipped with a pool table, table tennis, vending machines and free wifi; guests can buy sweets, drinks, food and milk at reception. To line stomachs properly before a day's activities, the 'Mabinogion Feast' fry-up or cereal and toast are both available to buy in the main centre (book in reception the day before).

Car parking is available for both sets of pitches about 50 yards away from each: you can drive to the entrance of the main camping fields to unload your kit.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including all activities are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

A very disappointing stay! - a farmyard not suited for camping 16/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    There were nice views overlooking Swansea, but that's probably the only positive!

    Disliked: 

    We were a group of 4 young people who, until arrival, were very much looking forward to our weekend stay at Clyne.

    However, it became very clear after only being there for 5 minutes that our moods were about to change.

    On arrival, we were eager to quickly begin to set up our tent when out of nowhere, we were approached by a very rude, and quite agressive member of staff, who inappropriately shouted at us for parking our vehicle on our allocated pitch whilst we were unloading our very full vehicle - (Despite the piece of paper handed to us minutes before clearly stating that vehicles were permitted on the camping site whilst being unloaded!!) - There were certainly better ways to approach your new customers!
    And so, after this very unwelcoming and unnecessary arrival, we were left with no choice but to move our vehicle to a car park (which was not very close to where we were actually staying) and carry ALL our camping gear from the car to the pitch! - Not an ideal layout for any campers with a weekends/weeks worth of camping equipment!

    Facilities were also poor. The toilets and showers were were certainly not very hygenic - situated next to the horses stables, and toilets being placed alongside showers certainly supports the word 'poor'.

    Further, with several campers on site, and only 1 dishwashing sink (with no hot water tap working either) on the entire campsite, from what we could see anyway, this was not ideal either.

    Overall unfortunately, we were not happy enough with our stay to be returning anytime soon. It certainly has potential to be great but hasnt quite got there yet.

    Very friendly staff.
    You are not told where you pitch but find an area you like.
    Very quiet campsite which is ideal for families.

    Disliked: 

    Pot wash room/carriage really needs hot water and a light.

    Being as you can not park on the pitches it would be a nice touch if something like wheelbarrows or small hand carts were available to take things to and from the car park.

Relaxed, quirky,clean facilites. Potentially excellent with few tweeks 04/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Booked in here for easy access to the Wales national airshow despite being a little off put by the low ratings, but as regular campers we felt it was worth the risk. Found it to be a great location for access to other activities we wanted to do during our stay. We found the staff friendly and facilities perfectly adequate, clean toilets, hot water in the showers, washing up and refuse areas.

    The site itself has a relaxed, quirky atmosphere with a few farm animals scattered around and the odd sheep showing up outside your tent in the morning. Its pitch up where you like which I much prefer over regimented pitches and the site offers some great views over the surrounding areas.

    Disliked: 

    Whilst it offers everything I'd expect from a site, there are a few things that give off a sense of lack of care in certain areas. The pond was drained which is a shame because I'm sure it would have added to our experience, and the pool table is covered so unusable. With regard to these I'd have to say either make them usable or get rid of them. Using a photo of the pond on the thumbnail is perhaps a bit disingenuous and may have contributed to bad reviews in the past. Also the anti noise notice given at the start is probably a bit too much on the preachy side and could be a bit more welcoming.

Nothing like the picture. No sign posts. 28/06/2017

  • Liked: 

    There was nothing much to like about this place we paid £60 for 2 nights it does not look anything like the picture. There is no pond and no sign post to let you know where you are camping and had to open gates which looked like fields where the animals go. And also thought there would be activities included with that price but no everything was extra. There was only use and another family there and even they left really early in the morning for what you pay it really is not worth it.

    Disliked: 

    All of it was really disappointing we paid through the nose for a patch of rocky grass which was not at all sign posted that that was where we was camping and so difficult to put up the tent, this was my little boys first experience camping and I thought there would be some activity's included in the £60 we paid for 2 nights which ended up being one as we could not find where to pitch up on the site. The owners was not very clued up and not helpful at all. Don't be fouled by this picture this site is really not like this at all. Will never be going back there again.

Directions


The site is just 3 miles from the centre of Swansea.

If you travelling west (eg from London), leave the M4 at Briton Ferry (Junction 42) on the A483, signposted Swansea. Pick up the signs for Mumbles and South Gower as you enter the city. Continue straight ahead on the A4067. This is a main road which follows the path of the shoreline of Swansea Bay with the sea on your left.

If you are travelling east (eg from Pembrokeshire) on the M4, leave at Junction 47 and take the A483. Pick up the signs for Sketty and Singleton Hospital. After 3 miles, pass the hospital on your left and turn right at the traffic lights signposted Mumbles, onto the A4067 - pass the playing fields before Blackpill and then follow the instructions below.

After 3 miles, pass the university on your right, then the playing fields on your right and a 9-hole golf course on your left. You will then enter the small village of Blackpill. There is a children's paddling pool lido area on the left. Here you need to be in the right-hand lane.

Just past the Woodman Pub (on your right) and the Murco Petrol station (on the left), turn right onto the B4436 Mayals Road at the part-time traffic lights (right turn only as you are in the right-hand lane), following the brown and white tourist signs for South Gower and Clyne Farm Centre.

Follow Mayals Road up the hill. You will be passing Clyne Gardens (behind a walled area) on your right. Take the first turning on the right (after about half a mile) into Westport Avenue. (If you start to drive into an area with common land either side of the road then you have gone too far!)

Drive through the houses to the top of the hill and turn right where you see the green Clyne Farm Centre sign. The office and reception area is on the left of the farmhouse.

From Mumbles
If you are coming from Mumbles, drive along the main coast road (A4067) towards Swansea for about 2 miles. Turn left onto the B4436 Mayals Road (left-hand filter lane) and follow the directions above from that point.

Local attractions

If you've any energy left after taking on the challenges of the activity centre, you'll find a good amount locally to tire you and the kids out.

The coastline a couple of miles away is a beauty: Gower was the first ever Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Britain and is known worldwide for its wide sandy beaches including Rhossili Bay, voted Britain's best beach and one of the top ten beaches in the world. (It was also once voted the UK's best picnic spot, so bring a basket).

Hitting the cities, Swansea is about 15 minutes away and buzzing with very lively nightlife as well as loads of other indoor attractions like shops, ten-pin bowling, the National Waterfront Museum and the LC Leisure Centre and waterpark.

If you're a footie fan, cheer on Swansea City AFC at Liberty Stadium: they're in the Premier League so you should see some top teams taking them on.

More into rugby? The Ospreys, part of the RaboDirect Pro12, also play at Liberty Stadium, and international teams including Wales can be cheered on at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium about an hour away.
