As born again camping virgins, my husband & I decided on Hillend for our first time as we are lucky enough to live just 30 mins from this site. It didn't disappoint - the site was well laid out, staff were friendly & facilities very good. We didn't experience any of the heavy handed monitoring of noise & behaviour that some other reviewers have commented on, luckily our fellow campers all respected the site rules, which after all, are only there to guarantee that everyone enjoys their stay. Didn't use the shop & only had a cup of tea at Eddie's cafe, so can't comment on the food, although the menu looked tempting and reasonably priced. The only negative was it's opening times - it didn't open until gone 10am (June 20th), which is far too late when you have to vacate your pitch by midday - and closed at 5pm, which is too early for anyone wanting an early evening meal. Apparently the opening hours are extended in the high season though. The sites biggest positive has to be it's location, just a few minutes through the sand dunes to stunning Rhossili beach. Add in fab weather & you couldn't wish for anywhere better. Hope to return.
