I live local and have been going to this site for a decade. The location is the best you can find, a stones throw from the sand dunes and beach. It is very popular with surfers. The site has been improved throughout the years and has excellent facilities which are kept very clean. Eddy's restaurant is good and the shop... More

We came here as two couples looking for a base for our mountain bike ride we had planned. Our ages ranged from 35-45 and we are all professionals. We thought the camp site was pricey compared to other sites we have stayed in but payed £50 per couple for 2 nights in our vans . The first night we were... More

Lovely campsite in a lovely location but our stay was spoilt by an extremely confrontational, argumentative and rude night watchman who spoke to us like dirt on both evenings of our stay. His abrasive nature spoilt our stay by making me angry. I will not stay there again.

I recognised the security man from the other reviews as he gave our group the same 'warm' welcome. The owner was lovely on the phone and assured me that a group of 18 year olds would be fine as long as they each paid a £20 bond. Unfortunately she was on holiday when we arrived. The security guard tried to... More

A group of about 25 of us (aged 16) had been planning a camping trip for months. We had planned to stay at Hillend as we loved the location and the beautiful beach. My friend phoned them to check if it was alright for a large group of us to stay there, and the lady on the phone said that... More

A large group of friends and I arrived having already rang hillend multiple times to confirm that we were coming. A rude, wonky-toothed, chavy and bald man was very rude and wouldn't even consider letting us on to the site because there was more than 10 of us (not even for one night to test our behaviour). We were very... More

I was going to be staying at hillend this week. We were going in a group of 20+ of people, and a member of the group had rang the manager/owner a month prior to the date and a number times in the weeks leading to the date. The manageress said there was no need to book and no reference number... More

This was our second time at Hillend and we weren't disappointed. We camped in a tent, albeit it was very busy in the fields but we found a pitch. Staff were polite especially in the shop, they were very friendly and helpful. We did not feel the wrath of any security guards as we were in bed by 10pm anyway.... More

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
