Welcome to Greenways Leisure Park

 

Long established & family-run static caravan and camping site at the heart of Britain’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty that is the Gower peninsula.

Greenways Leisure Park is part of the Whiteford Bay Leisure family business, Greenways Leisure Park has always had a reputation as being a top holiday destination for couples and families and under new ownership has gone from strength to strength. The park compromises a vast camping and touring area and with 118 static holiday home pitches and a new 25 pitch development underway in 2006, the future of the park is certainly looking bright.

Greenways enjoys panoramic views, including over Oxwich Bay, which in February 2007 was voted the best beach in the UK and is one of the largest beaches on Gower. The beach itself is used by all and attracts water & sports fanatics, sun-bathers, fishermen and families. The Oxwich Bay Hotel & Restaurant is conveniently located at ‘our-end’ of the bay where refreshments and good food can be found, however if you like to go out in the evenings there are numerous good establishments such as The King Arthur only a short drive from the site. The surrounding countryside is abundant with life and the site offers fantastic views of this also, including marshland where many species of birds can be found.

The park has a large wooden children’s playground, lounge-bar, shower-block facilities for campers, laundrette and boat storage facilities.

Information
Oxwich was once a port used for exportation of limestone from Oxwich point and as were many of the local bays was a haven for smugglers!

Oxwich beach itself is the second largest beach on Gower vanquished only by Rhossili Bay in its length. The two and a half or so miles of golden sands leading on to Tor Bay and Three Cliffs Bay were used for the very first airplane flight in Wales in 1911 piloted by one Mr E. Sutton. The beach was deemed suitable due to the flat surface gradient and overall length of the bay.

Today the beach is happily visited by many thousands of people annually, many of whom like the easy boat access, the charming surroundings or simply to soak up the sun when the fine weather is with us. Within the woodlands of Oxwich point is the partially hidden Church of St. Illtyd, a site that has been recognised as a place of worship for some 1500 years.

 

 

Local Activities
Fishing
Although the beach itself is not always the best spot for fishing, Oxwich point and many of the surrounding coastal areas can be very good indeed. Oxwich Point can be reached by foot past Oxwich castle (Tudor fortified manor house) opposite Greenways Leisure Park and the footpaths heading over towards the point or alternatively you could go from the 6th Century Church of St. Illtyd down near the beach, however beware the large number of steps you must climb to get atop the point.

As mentioned Oxwich Bay has good boat access & launching facilities, however for those of you who do not own a boat all is not lost! Local company, Euphoria Sailing, offer sailing lessons, boat tours of Gower, kayaking lessons and hire at their Beach Club at Oxwich Bay & Swansea Marina.

Gower Heritage Centre
Set in the heart of the Gower Peninsula at Parkmill, just west of Swansea, South Wales, the Gower Heritage Centre was established in 1990 as a countryside crafts centre situated in historical and beautiful surroundings. The 12th century water powered corn and saw mill was renovated, and experienced crafts people took up residence on site. Today the centre is recognised as a vibrant crafts and rural life museum that welcomes visitors from all around the world.

Surfing and Bodyboarding on Gower
The location of Gower and its general aspect make it one of the best surf areas in the UK. The fact that it is a peninsula helps this and means that there are plenty of breaks to choose from depending upon the conditions.

The main factors when deciding where to go are 1). Swell size and direction, 2). Wind speed and direction, 3). Tide timetables and height of the tide. Llangennith faces directly out to the Atlantic and picks up swell before the other beaches. The prevailing wind direction for Gower is a westerly wind and this can push up the swell size. As a rough guide, Llangennith needs to be about 4-5ft for Langland and Caswell to get a 2-3ft wave.

If you are a new or inexperienced surfer then please do not go surfing alone and stick to the beach breaks on Gower. The Gower peninsula has many reef breaks but these are not recommended for the inexperienced.

Kite Boarding
Kiteboarding is a fast growing sport that is enjoyed by many people around the world and the essential skill is learning how to manage the power of a kite. Gower Kite Riders offer lessons in this up and coming sport. Oxwich Bay is at times is a very colourful place! A healthy picture of activity with numerous kites flying through the sky and boarders below enjoying every minute of it!
