Additional notes

Walkers and ramblers are spoilt for choice. Within easy reach of camp site are miles of coastal paths, beaches and large areas of common land inhabited by wild ponies. Boats may be launched at Oxwich Bay, Swansea Bay and Caswell Bay and most beaches provide safe bathing. The immediate surroundings are ideal for wide games and some basic rockclimbing. There is a pony trekking centre almost on site
