We have plenty of space for tents but limit our camping numbers at Clyne so it never feels full. Our campsite overlooks Swansea Bay and has panoramic views yet we are close to Swansea and the Gower beaches.
We offer a wide range of adventure activities at Clyne Farm including horse riding, indoor climbing, abseiling, orienteering, archery, canoeing, gorge walking, caving, mountain biking, surfing, body boarding, Segway racing, bushcraft and survival.
We have been running a campsite as part of our activity programmes since 1989, but the farm has been used by Scout and Guide groups from the local area since before the war. Recently we have upgraded the facilities to include solar powered shower rooms (communal and family rooms), toilets, changing rooms and a washing-up room in a restored railway wagon with solar powered hot water.
We also have table tennis, a pool table and free wifi in the office building. There are vending machines and the reception sells confectionery, drinks, food and milk. We also have a stone barn which can serve as an emergency sleeping space if you get rained out.
At extra charge, we offer breakfast in the main centre including the Mabinogion Feast (two bacon, two sausages, two hash browns, egg, mushrooms, beans or tomato, and toast) or cereals and toast. Just pre-book in reception the day before.
Cars are allowed to the entrance of the main camping fields to load and unload, and then need to be parked in the car park (about 50 yards away). Cars can be parked about fifty yards from the woodland camping areas which are approached down a fairly steep stoned drive through fields.
Gower was designated Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is famed for its sandy beaches. Even in the summer you will find the beaches are not crowded and offer the chance to relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Swansea is a bustling city with plenty of indoor attractions - cinemas, ten pin bowling, shops, the National Waterfront Museum and the LC Leisure Centre with water park.The Liberty Stadium host Premier League football with the Swansea and Robodirect rugby with the Ospreys.

From the manager...
We had an on site warden during summer 2013 and each camper is given a leaflet about our Zero Tolerance policy on Noise. If no staff member is around there is an emergency number on the information provided and complaints can be dealt with 24/7 through that number or reception which is open 9.00 - 5.00. For 2014 we are restricting the numbers of single sex groups as regrettably common sense goes out the window after a few drinks. Toilets and showers are cleaned on at least a daily basis

From the manager...
Showers and toilets are checked continually through teh day particularly when it rains but you are correct - people could clean up after themselves.
I'm sure that our zero tolerance policy to noise will be welcome by most campers including most single sex or young groups (it is not just young people who make noise). It is not different from most campsites - if you want to get drunk, play loud music and stay up all night stay at home and annoy your neighbours!
Alas, no reviews for your selected filters. But reviews are brilliant - they help thousands of other people to find the right holiday. Be bold, be the first to review this site. It only takes a minute.

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