We enjoyed 10 days on this site 8 of which were beautiful and sunny. There is not a lot else nearby to the site so depending on what you like to do it may not be for you. When we visited the standard of the mens showers and toilets was not good and they often needed cleaning but the ladies and everything else was fine. Pleasant atmosphere on site with no rowdiness.

Lovely campsite in a lovely location, although not as much of a sea view as some other campsites due to its location. If you want a sea view ask for a pitch in E location. Great clean facilities. Really helpful, friendly staff. Well stocked shop where we bought fantastic wind socks, pole and sleeve to decorate our pitch. Pitches are huge, some with electric and all close to water stations. Great walks all around to some stunning beaches. Will definitely return.

Came back last week from a 7 day stay at Pitton Cross. Stayed here years ago as a kid with my family and decided to come back years later with my girlfriend. It's safe to say I wasn't disappointed. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The shop was well stocked with everything we needed and at reasonable prices. The toilet/ shower blocks were always very clean even at the busier times and always had hot water as was the dish washing area. The site was very quiet as well even when it was busier at the weekend. The location is perfect since there is so much beautiful coastline within walking distance which was important to us since neither of us drive and we prefered to walk as opposed to getting a bus everywhere although this was very convenient too since the bus stop is literally across the road. We found the walk to Mewslade and Rhossili very manageable even with a heavy backpack and the walk alone was breathtaking enough. We had perfect weather all week except the final day when we were leaving and as I was relying on a family member to pick us up I was dreading having to stand in the pouring rain with all our stuff since they weren't going to make it in time for the 11am check out however they were extremely kind and let us keep our tent up while we waited our lift.

All in all a brilliant campsite in a beautiful area.

Kieran and Alecia :)

Had a great long weekend at Pitton cross.
The staff and booking was very easy and efficient. The shop is full of everything you need and everyone is immensely helpful.

We pitched our tent in a field on our own and it was great. The toilet and shower block is large and spotless. Great showers.

Site is about 1.5 miles from rhosilli which is the most beautiful bay in the world.

Would recommend eating at the Britannia inn llanmadoc whic is exceptional and kings head inn llangenith book though it gets busy.

Terrible weather lovely site.

We've just spent a long weekend camping at pitton cross, after arriving Not really knowing what to expect, we were greeted by pleasant and helpful staff at a very well facilitated camp site with everything you need and more for caravans or tents. We drove around gower and came across other camp sites we'd previously considered staying at and was very glad with pitton cross being our chosen campsite in comparison. We Would definitely recommend staying here, we will be visiting again with out a doubt.

Pitton Cross camp site evolves gradually, the facilities improve but the geography and essence of the original camp site remain unchanged.Pitton is a campsite for everyone who enjoys great walks and a good location for touring. Everyone involved in the organization of the site is efficient and helpful. The campsite shop provides camping essentials and helpful advice.The fabulous location does everything else.
