Welcome to Greenways Leisure Park | Camping Gower | Static Caravans Gower | Gower Holidays Stayed here for 3 nights in August 2011, camping in a tent. Shower block very clean and modern. Great play area for kids and a few fields to pitch your tent in. Hill to walk back up from beach. Beach had sand fleas though :-(. No shop or restaurant on site, shop at bottom of hill VERY expensive!
