Pitch up your tent in our tranquil campsite…

Camping in Swansea Bay is always popular and our prime location in Port Talbot allows you to be at one with nature and relax but with a short drive to the local amenities.  At our campsite, you can pitch up your tent, then sit back and enjoy the basics in a quiet, remote field, whilst viewing the grazing deer, or red kites overhead.

Book a stay with us, and watch the herds of grazing Pierre David Deer, Red Deer and Fallow Deer amongst the Braken on the adjacent hillside from your own tent camping pitch.

Is there Electricity hookup available?

There is no electricity hookup available as we offer a cheap Wild Camping experience. Tent camping without electricity can be a challenge, but a head torch and battery/solar powered lights for inside the tent are ideal for night lighting. Make sure you have a gas stove for cooking and boiling the kettle,  food to cook on the campfire and let nature entertain you.

What camping facilities are available?

This is a wild campsite, so the facilities are intentionally minimal to allow you to enjoy the act of wild camping in a safe and legal way. We do have two fully functional toilets and two showers on-site, plus a portaloo in the camping field for those caught short in the middle of the night.

We also have a zip line and a rope swing for the children (or big children) to play on in our woodland area – it’s a great way for the children to socialise with each other and make friends.

Spectacular views and sunsets

Camping in Swansea Bay is always popular and our prime location in Port Talbot offers you spectacular sunsets and overwhelming views from Bristol through to the Gower Peninsula.

You’ll love camping in your tent at our campsite, the welsh countryside can have be a bit wet sometimes, but luckily our campsite is protected from the South Westerly winds by the woodlands and stoned walls of Margam Country Park.

Book a stay with us, and make sure you do not leave without taking a short walk up to the ‘Bro Stone’ and enjoy unrivalled views overlooking the Swansea Bay and across the Bristol Channel to Devon. The views from there are spectacular and on most days, you can see Lundy Island which is over 50 miles away.

We are one of few campsites to provide open field camping with tents on the east side of Swansea Bay. Meaning on a fine evening you can enjoy the full splendor of a Swansea Bay sunset as it sinks below the horizon towards the Irish Sea and Atlantic Ocean. If the trees are in your way and you can’t see the  sunset from your tent, then just walk a few metres up the road and you’ll be amazed by the stunning views. …seriously, we can’t emphasise how great our location really is!

National Cycle Network Route 4…

For those of you looking for a campsite along the Cycle Route 4 of the National Cycle Network, we are ideally located due to ‘Route 4’ travels past our campsite gates.

The National Cycling Network’s Route 4 is a superb long-distance cycle route from London to Fishguard (west Wales). It allows you to cycle through the  beautiful Welsh countryside, across the Swansea bay and Llanelli wetlands and through historic towns such as Kidwelly all the way to fishguard. Route 4 is a challenging long-distance cycle route with stunning scenery and is often used for those wanting to cycle to Ireland (or to London).

The Celtic Trail is a spectacular cycle route that stretches across South Wales, from the English Border in the East, to the Irish Sea in the west. The Celtic Trail cycling route is made up of sections of two National Cycle routes – Route 4 which is a coast route and Route 47, which is an inland route.

Our campsite is great stop-off point for an overnight stay on the National Network Route 4/Celtic Trail due to the route running alongside… so there’s no detour needed. We also have showers on-site and some comfy sofa’s in the communal area to help you freshen up after a hard day’s ride.

It’s worth noting that departing along route 4 from our campsite (heading west through Margam Park), it is gravel terrain for approximately 800 metres, so be careful on those road tyres (you could bypass the gravel by entering into Margam Park via the East Lodge gates) and then back out onto the A48.
