If you’ve opted for a standard campsite ticket, or a Classic Bell Tent option, you’ll need to bring your own tent and camping equipment. If you’ve purchased a luxury bell tent, this includes all your camping equipment, so you just need to bring your personal luxuries!

If you are bringing an 8 person tent or larger please let us know by emailing us the details hello@lovetrails.com as you may have to be allocated a different pitch. Giant structures are not allowed. Gazebos are also not allowed in the campsite.

Luxury Bell Tents:

Furnished and carpeted Bell Tent package complete with comfortable real mattress on a raised bed frame, full linen including duvets & pillows (doubles or singles selected on booking), throw/blanket, cushion, entrance mat & rug, lantern, hanging mirror and low-level table.

Classic Bell tents

An empty, carpeted bell tent. A blank canvas for you to make a home for your stay at Camp Love Trails. Bring fairy lights and your favourite bougie glamping gear, or keep it minimal with a sleeping bag, roll mat and a foam roller. 

Yes! Spaces are limited and must be booked seperately.

On arrival at Camp Love Trails, our crew will direct you to your designated camping pitch. These will be marked out to allow for social distancing.

Due to safety reasons, we can’t have cars parked next to tents, but you won’t have to walk far, and can always nip back to your car for a second load.

Closer to your arrival day we’ll provide you with a full list which should help with your packing. For now, consider packing for days like this: running on the trails, picnics on the beach, cozy nights by the fire, evenings at the pub, fitness, movement & wellbeing activities.

Yes! We absolutely love dogs and they are most welcome. Just please make sure they’re well behaved, and be mindful of other guests in and around the campsite, and livestock around the fields.

FACILITIES

Yes! There will be hot showers on site separated into Male and Female areas, with single cubicles and shared changing facilities in each area.

Our toilets are eco-friendly compost loos which are waterless, chemical free, and the end product can be used as compost to prevent the use of chemical fertilisers.

There will be a few charging points available for phone charging.

Yes! We’ll have a few local food trucks available on site selling delicious meals for breakfast or dinner.

Yes, you’re welcome to bring your own food on site, and cook your own food on a small camping stove. There will also be a designated area for BBQs. 

There will be water points available for hand washing, bottle filling, and teeth brushing.

West Castle Farm has good 4G signal, so you can still stay connected to the outside world if needed.

BBQs are only allowed in the designated BBQing area and must not be used next to your tent. Small gas camping stoves are absolutely fine. 

VOLUNTEERING

We are currently recruiting for our Summer Crew! Please fill out our Volunteer Application Form Here and we'll get back to you :)

CHILDREN

Yes! Camp Love Trails is a friendly, safe, comfortable and relaxed campsite which welcomes families.

Children can be booked in the same way as adults. When using the drop-down menu on your booking page just select the number of 'guests' in your party. This includes children over 5 years old. Under 5's go free!

If you're booking a luxury bell tent, campervan, or standard camping, you'll need to specify how many guest tickets you'd like to include. Guests = number of people over 5 years old.

If you're bringing a child under the age of 5, you don't need to include them in your guest count. They come for free! :)

Think of Camp Love Trails as the ultimate staycation for your family Summer holiday. Stay all together in one of our luxury bell tents, spend your mornings down at the beach, and your afternoons exploring the Gower Peninsula: rock pooling, hiking, bird watching, or coasteering. In the evenings, relax in the designated BBQ area, or share a pizza and listen to live music. There’s a host of activities and action in the Gower that’ll keep you all entertained from dawn ‘till dusk. 

In the main campsite there will be a noise curfew of 10pm. Live music will go on later but this will be in an area away from general camping.
