Accommodation

Camping (none on site)

Clyne Farm Centre. "About three miles from the club on a hill overlooking Swansea Bay and Mumbles (£4 taxi ride). They have a small campsite and a secure parking for boats and trailers. There are showers and a washing up room housed in a restored 19th century railway goods wagon with solar heated water. The cost of camping is £5 per person per night with under 5s free of charge. Camper vans are welcome but unfortunately we cannot accommodate caravans. For the less hardy there are nine 4 star self catering cottages and barns and for the really adventurous Challenge Valley - the muddiest assault course in the world!! or horseriding." Clyne Farm Centre, Westport Avenue, Mayals, Swansea. Tel 01792 403333, clynefarm.com.

Camper vans

Camper vans are usually allowed in Knab Rock car park for the duration of the event for the standing charges (apx. £5.00 per day) but it may be worth checking first with Knab Rock office during Bank Holidays or for extended periods. Ask to speak to Huw or Nigel on 01792 360082.
