There is no arguing that this area is one of the most beautiful in Wales. The beach was very clean and the walk to Rhosilli is steep but well worth it. The site itself is basic but tidy. The showers were hot and the toilet block acceptable. As a group of work friends aged between 37-55 we were hardly there... More

Location is absolutly fantastic with only a short walk to the beach through the dunes - we have stayed here many times over the last 5 years - we only live an hour away and still camp here. Surf is great. Find it can be noisyier than other nearby family sites as still can have big groups of lads here,... More

Despite the horrible weather we had a wonderful weekend staying at Hillend. The staff are friendly, helpful and polite and the fascilities are fantastic. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great base for their adventures in The Gower.

I really can't describe how great this campsite was. The location- depending on where you set up camp is about 20 seconds walk to the rhosilli bay beach. Facilities are great and the camping fields are large and drain well even though they are flat. Recycling facilities could be improved, but in all provided an excellent destination for camping even... More

Love this campsite, been visiting every year for over 10 years, clean, safe for children, great facilities and close to beach which is fab fir spending days lazing around and body boarding. Beach bbq in the dunes is a must! Would recommend to families, groups of friends.

The location of this site is excellent; it's at the foot of a lovely big hill (which boats amazing views at the top), and is also right next to Rhosilli Bay. The site is large and has really good showering and toilet facilities, plus a cafe and shop. It is, however, very pricey. £25 for one night's stay in our... More

This beach is beautiful and from the minute we arrived at the car park where a rather glamorous lady pleasantly explained what was what to the minute we left we were very impressed! We stopped at the cafe before heading to the beach and ordered our lunch which was lovely and served by really nice people. The place was very... More

Great set up. We were a bit concerned about the strict rules and rude staff, but I've got to be honest we didn't have any problems with them. They were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The facilities were well kept and the shop well very well stocked. We are all looking forward to going back in a... More

I'm a Gower lad and proud of it and have been camping at Hill End over the last 25 plus years so it's fair to say that I know this place inside out. I've reviewed Hill End before and the positives, in my experience anyway, outweigh the negatives (which I will go into later). We arrived Friday afternoon and we... More

The camp site is pretty good The toilets need looking after a bit more but all the facilities are there and the beach is great. Me and my husband went with another couple. We were told at eleven to head over to the dunes or basically go to bed because when I suggested we would all head inside our tent... More
