“A pack of lies!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2004

In response to the review given about Carreglwyd campsite, I have to give my own version of events from when my family and I stayed there last summer.Okay, it is basic but what do you expect when you go camping? As for the place being dirty, I can only strongly disagree, as there has been new showers built and the toilets were also clean.I have 2 small daughters aged 6 and 2 and we had a great time as cars are not allowed to drive around the site only for parking so my kiddies could do more or less as they pleased. In fact we have planned to stay there again this year and would`nt hesitate in recommending it to any-one.Come on, if you want posh, book into a four star hotel!!!!!!!!!

The sign outside Carreglwyd says "Welcome to the Leisure Park". After a nightmare weekend it would have been more suited to say "welcome to hell".
We used Carregwlyd's website to judge where to stay. Here are a few things we experienced that they care not to mention.
1. Published tariffs are not correct and this site charges more than the Gower usual for no perceptable improvement in service.
2. If you want to have a shower - you have to pay extra to buy a token. The showers are filthy and dangerous with broken tiles etc. The toilet areas weren't cleaned at all during our stay and litter flowed over the bins.
3. The site is completely disorganised, except when coming to collecting money from you. Visitors are allowed to "pitch at will" which means that you may not be able to get your car out because someone will pitch in front of your tent.
4. The site is noisy, especially at night and has no obvious security. Guests dogs roam the site at night and are not kept on leads and the site attracts weekenders whose sole purpose appears to be to drink as heavily as possible and run all night parties. If that's your thing you'll be in great company and this is certainly the site for you. If not, then best avoided.
