The fruits of family labour, a jolly farm campsite ideal for a beach of walking holiday
If you’ve been to the Gower before but not to this campsite, the chances are you’ve already had a taste of the farm. Some of the area’s most upmarket restaurants and gastro pubs buy Nicholaston Farm produce and Beynon fruit. Not that you need go that far. The delightful onsite café sells fresh, handpicked goodies too. Get them whisked into a Berry Boost smoothie and take in the view of the startling Three Cliffs.
Ideally situated just off the A4118 south Gower road – the main bus route between Swansea and Rhossili – the farm is directly between the Gower Way path to the north and the Gower Coast Path on its southern perimeter. It’s no surprise to find walkers rising early in the morning, packing away their tiny tents and heading off along the coast. The 10-minute stroll through woods and sand dunes to the nearest beach makes the place a boon for families too.
Recent changes mean caravan and motorhomes are now catered for, with 30 hard-standings in their own dedicated, sea-view field, while smaller campervans can also be accommodated in the two main tent-camping meadows. Campers have the benefit of modern amenity and shower blocks, fridges, freezers, Wi-Fi and secure mobile phone charging cabinets at no additional cost.
The Beynon family are friendly and easy going and it’s a big enough space to accept larger family groups – if you pass muster on the phone. Three Cliffs, Tor, crawley and Oxwich Bays are largely unspoilt and the walk down to the beaches is either over soft sand dunes scattered evening primroses or through forests filled with abundant wildlife. You’d be pushed to see such a varied coastline in such a small space anywhere else in the UK.

From the host
Nicholaston Farm Campsite is a working family farm that has accommodated camping and caravans since the 1920's. It is ideally located on the Gower Peninsula, just off the main road from Swansea with access to beautiful beaches situated between Oxwich and Three Cliffs Bay. An idyllic location for those who enjoy the outdoors, located centrally on the Wales Coastal Path. Nicholaston Farm is situated in a gradually sloping meadow facing southwards and overlooking Tor Bay, Crawley woods and the beautiful coastal regions stretching westwards in to the Bristol Channel. New from 2015 we now also offer two luxury glamping tents. These are fully equipped safari tents with all you will need for a camping stay with out the hassle. Ideal for families and couples.
The campsite has free wi-fi across the whole site, free and secure mobile device charging, 2 modern shower blocks, laundry and drying facilities, and fridges and freezers for customer use.
Ideal base for a walking and/or beach holiday.
