Perfect campsite for families, good well stocked shop, plenty of clean showers and toilets, short walk across dunes to the beach, great play area for children. Such a laid back place with friendly and helpful staff, we will always go back here.

A key challenge with the site is not being able to book so if it's busy you need to plan for potential disappointment. We camped Bank Holiday weekend and it was very busy but we got in. It is quite a basic site (very few electric hook ups) but the facilities were always clean and in good order, this must... More

A group of friends and I spent the Bank Holiday weekend in Rhossili Bay, probably one on the most stunning beaches I've been to in the UK (haven't made it to Cornwall yet!) We stayed at Hillend Campsite which was massive and in my opinion overcrowded. Tents were packed in to the tiniest spot and there were cars everywhere! The... More

My family and I camped here last week and it was wonderful. Helped by the weather of course. But the site is very well run and spotlessly clean. Showers and toilets kept sparkling. It has a great playground for the children and a super cAfe on site. The best mushrooms on toast ever! A small shop that provided ice coolers... More

We enjoyed a variety of drinks (hot chocolate, coffee and tea) at the end of a wet walk along the beach. The staff were great and service was good, can highly recommend. The outdoor seating area has good views across the local countryside :-)

The site has an excellent location, and very good facilities. The site is located next to the beach, which although can be windy, is excellent for surfing, walking and relaxing. The facilities are very good, with clean toilets, showers (indoors and out), washing up facilities and even a shop and bistro. The site does have some rules, which are strictly... More

Camped here with a few mates, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff with excellent facilities (Toilets, showers, shop and cafe). Perfect location with a quick walk from campsite to the beautiful beach and to the local pub (The Kings Head) where we enjoyed great tasting beer and food at a reasonable price.

I have been to this site as a day visitor before and the beach is amazing, so clean and great waves for all skill levels from boarders to surfers. Recently camped with my family and some friends for a week and the whole place has a great vibe. Considering the amount of people here it doesnt feel busy, Never waited... More
