Touring pitch

General

  • Well-located site in the Swansea valley just off the M4 corridor
  • A 15-minute drive to Swansea and 30 minutes to the Gower peninsula
  • Indoor pool, coffee shop, wifi, bar, live entertainment and fishing

Centrally located just north of Wales’ second biggest city, Riverside Caravan Park makes a brill base for touring both the country’s south and west. This family-run spot with an indoor swimming pool and fishing facilities is in between the Swansea valley and the M4 corridor, about half an hour’s drive from the stunning scenery of the Gower peninsula...

Before hopping around the beaches though, it’s best to get in a good feed at the chip shop, grab a takeaway or – if it’s Sunday – try one of the traditional dinners at the park. A bar’s on site for drinks post-explores and entertainment ranging from bingo to live music is put on in the nights as well.

Fodder figured out, start your adventures in the west after a pick-me-up coffee from the café, beginning with the Mumbles half an hour’s drive away for its pretty pier and fancy houses – the abode of well-known Welshwoman Catherine Zeta-Jones is around here somewhere...

Wide and sandy Llangennith (about 40 minutes’ drive) could be next or you might want to amble along the coastal path at Rhosilli (50 minutes) for epic views over the ocean. Surf with the seals at Oxwich Bay (also 50 minutes) or curl up on a blanket at a smaller cove, Broughton Bay, about 40 minutes away.

Closer beaches that have a bit more of a built-up setting include Swansea’s very own bay (20 minutes) and Aberavon (the same distance) with its Aquasplash pool.

Kids not tired out yet after full-on days? The play area back on base should get them feeling sleep enough for a good night’s rest, ready to do it all over again the next morning...

    Very friendly staff, when other people pitched correctly a good sized pitch. Nice clean swimming pool with The opportunity for adult only swim. Cafe, shop on site as well as entertainment if you want it.

    Disliked: 

    Touring part is very small and surrounded by a large number of residential/seasonal pitches mostly enclosed by their own fences, felt like we were intruding on their privacy. When we arrived a car was parked on our pitch, the owner was nowhere to be found, a hour later he wandered over, he was in the bar and not even pitched on the site. We had a camper van with an awning pitched within 4 foot to the rear of us. Bin area very untidy with overflowing bins. Didn’t seem to have any staff checking on the pitching of the units.

    Lots to do there and most of what you need is on site. Also really close to plenty of shops, food places etc. Everyone was very friendly and regular residents were very welcoming. The site has a welcoming feel to it. I have found regular residents in some places to be unwelcoming but it was the complete opposite here which we loved as we love meeting and chatting to new people

    Disliked: 

    Swimming pool was freezing!! Being close to a motorway and train track means you can have disturbed sleep.
    Camping pitches could do with being a bit bigger as we were quite close to our neighbors

    Friendly campsite with good facilities and generous pitches. My young kids loved the swimming pool and park. The drinks and food on site are reasonably priced too!

    Disliked: 

    There was a dance festival going on nearby whilst we stayed but that can hardly be blamed on the campsite.

It’s not just beaches that lure people to this lovely area: the country parks are also swish, including Gnoll in Neath (15 minutes) with its 100-acre early-18th-century landscaped garden. Visit for Aberdulais Falls and the sizable waterwheel or to have a knockabout at the golf course. The Neath and Tennant Canal’s around here too for woodland walks beside water…

Go south to Swansea for more nature at Plantasia (15 minutes), a big public hothouse with all sorts of plants to see; the city’s main museum will also keep you occupied for a fair few hours with its film showings and photography exhibitions.

Weather looking a bit iffy? Get on over to the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (30 minutes’ drive) for underground antics in the Brecon Beacons’ 17-kilometre-long cave system.
