Parc-Le-Breos, Gower - Closed

Located on the beautiful Gower peninsula, Parc-Le-Breos is in an extremely attractive setting, amidst well-established woodland with large open grassed areas. It provides an ideal location for wild back-to-basics camping and outdoor activities.

The site has mains water points and chemical toilet disposal units. Thanks to the Heritage Centre, Parkmill (400 metres off site) we have the use of toilets and hot showers (male & female), day and night, for a small charge that is made for tokens and a key.

Unfortunately, in 2021 we were unable to continue to run Park Le Breos, and it was handed back to Welsh Water.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
