The Gower peninsula, Britain's first designated area of outstanding natural beauty, extends 20km westwards from the city of Swansea.
The peninsula is an ageless delight, with its attractive landscape of cosy villages, farms, castle ruins and common land, bounded by 40km of awesome coastline and world renowned beaches.
Situated on the western edge of the peninsular, you will find the most breathtaking of all Gower's beaches, Rhossili Bay. From Worms Head in the south, to the tidal islet of Burry Holme to the north, the three mile sweep of golden sands is a constant reminder of the splendour of Gower.
It is here, at the foot of Rhossili Down, 200m from the beach, embraced by farm and moor land and an extensive sand dune system, that you will find Hillend.
Hillend does not take advance bookings for the campsite.
The facilities at Hillend are continually being improved and are, we believe, second to none on any campsite on Gower.
"One of the finest amenities blocks on any Welsh campsite." (Cool Camping Guide - 2007)
The improvements carried out in recent years are probably one of the reasons Hillend was listed in 2006 as one of the 'Top 10 UK Campsites' in both The Times and The Observer. The site was also featured in The Guardian in 2007.
The proximity of the beach makes it an ideal location for all water sports enthusiasts, in particular canoeists, windsurfers, anglers, and especially surfers.
