Look for the race track on Anglesey then just up from it follow the A4080 and you will see a long flat car-park that is right on the edge of the beach.

I would put up the co-ordinates, but I cant !!!

Caravan Club CL Near Rhossili; Mewslade View just before Rhossili village on The Gower, Mrs Howe (berylhowe@aol.com)...very friendly site with beautiful views.
I found it quite difficult to wildcamp on The Gower and it's very expensive to park during the day. The Hotel at Oxwich let me park in their car park for no charge however and if you're cheeky and it's not peak season I found the beach carpark at Hillend quite handy for a couple of (not consecutive) nights. The campsite there is 20 plus per person per night:scared:
The Pembrokeshire National Park car parks are quite good with little restriction when I last visited in 2009. Especially Newgale Sands and the old military facility by the youth hostel near Manorbier

There is a small site at Three cliffs Bay with outstanding views. Check this out. Three Cliffs Bay Holiday Park - Three Cliffs Bay Holiday Park (http://threecliffsbay.com/)
This beach is probably one of the most stunning beaches in the UK and would be great to run the dog.

This is a popular site because of the view so you would need to book.

Slightly further on there is Nicholston farm. Again stunning views of Oxwich Bay. Here you can walk down through the woods to the beach again run the dog. Home - Nicholaston Farm (http://nicholastonfarm.co.uk/)

If you are energetic walk the length of this lovely beach to the Oxwich Bay hotel. Home - Oxwich Bay Hotel (http://www.oxwichbayhotel.co.uk/)
They do excellent meals and you'll need a tipple for that return walk home. On your return journey walk through the dunes and salt marsh. This is a nature reserve and protected area. You may see some rare birds. If you are not energetic drive your van to the Oxwich Bay hotel. Whilst in the area visit Swansea and particularly the docks, The Mumbles where Dylan Thomas grew up. Port Eynon and Rhosili again shear beauty. Take the time to walk up to worms head.

Carry on around the peninsular to Pembrey country park, there is a Caravan Club site here but reading on this website there are some free spots here. you can then carry on to Burry Port again some free parking here.
There a many stunning places you can pass through after this such as Laugharne (Dylan Thomas boat house overlooking the estuary) Pendine, Amroth, Wisemans Bridge (may be free parking here overlooking the sea), Saundesfoot (Lovely harbour and worth a stop) Then to the Jewel in the Pembokshire crown Tenby. Tenby Wales Pembrokeshire - Virtual Tenby.co.uk the only independent guide to Tenby Pembrokeshire in West Wales (http://www.virtualtenby.co.uk/)
You may be able to park free in the lower town car park.
Another stunning place in Pembrokshire is Bosherston Lily ponds. WALES TOURISM Visiting Wales, advice and photos of Wales (http://www.colinswalestourism.co.uk/#/bosherton-lily-ponds/4533683335)
This is on the stackpole estate which includes stackpole quay and stackpole rocks. A little further along you will find St Governs church built in the rocks. Worth seeing.Monkton Rectorial Benefice - St Govan's Chapel (http://www.revjones.fsnet.co.uk/govan/govan.html)

Sorry I've gone on a bit but I know the area well and you can probably tell love it. if you want any more info please ask I can take you right up to Aberaeron.
Hope it helps

If you want a hookup on Anglesey there are 2 certified places I know of (can't remember if they are CL's or CS's).

They are both next to each other, near the airfield. Both have a decent dog walking area onsite & dog activities (they share some between them).
10 pn is Tyn Llidiart Camping Site, Campsite & Caravan Park In Bryngwran, Anglesey (http://camping.uk-directory.com/Tyn_Llidiart_Camping_Site_2021.php)

In Sept 2011 I stayed next door as was doing dog training with them, good site and is certified but only details I can find are Home (http://www.pods-flyball.co.uk/) click on contact details. You will be assured of a warm welcome with Peter & Delia.

Again, beware of sat nav errors in that area.

Oh! and one of the best dog walks I've done was Newborough - check it out! Great mix of beach & forest :cool:

I would suggest you get a copy of the C&CC big sites book, there are hundreds of entries for small 5 up campsites

Hi Terry
There loads of CL type sites on the Gower and week days in June would not be a problem, weekends you may have to book, look on c club / ccc websites for details. Main campsites on the Gower very expensive for what they offer and as already said wilding difficult and not popular with local council.
The Gower is a great place for dog walking and just chilling out, Not far away Pembrey country park with Cefan Sedan beach where you can wild outside the park and go into the park in the day either with van or walk.

Overnight stop offered Anglesey no charge.....
We could offer space to a vehicle in our driveway or a larger vehicle in the lay-by in front of the house, plus water and hook-up, toilet empting ,
clothes wash and line in garden, and use of small workshop, mig welder, grinder, etc
A launderette a mile away is able to wash and dry duvets for about 8-10,
A local large hardware store sells calor gas exchange, or a coal merchant nearby does flogas exchange
We are about 5 miles from Holyhead, Anglesey. North-Wales UK
Plenty of wild sites around Anglesey
