Happy Jakes Touring Park


Smile, you’re at Happy Jakes Touring Park! And we’ll tell you a few reasons for why. This lush little Welsh countryside park is peacefully placed in the countryside deep in the Vale of Glamorgan – but is only a few miles from the Blue Flag beaches, cliffs and coves of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, including seaside resort Barry of Gavin and Stacey fame: fans of Uncle Bryn, Nessa et al can book a Gavin and Stacey tour in the town to see the main tellyvisual sights.

Fifteen miles to the east lies Cardiff, capital for days and nights out, or you could contentedly base the family at Happy Jakes to coast around the local castles, bike routes, gardens and activities on/in land and water. That’s tidy, that is.

Family owners Mandy, Mark and (famous) Jake have been honing and adding to Happy Jakes Touring Park since opening in 2011, with disabled access high on the agenda: the wetrooms in the spick and span heated shower and loo block are big enough to take a wheelchair user and carer, or up to four family members. There’s also a launderette, washing up area with hot water, tourist information room, and a dedicated dog walking/play area for dedicated dogs (who stay for free; happy woof). Pitches are for tents, trailer tents, motorhomes and tourers: tents in the level centre of the park on seriously spacious open pitches; motorhomes, caravans and trailer tents along the park’s edge on roomy grass pitches with optional electric hook-up.

Looking for nosh and tipples to put an additional smile on your face? Pick up all sorts of fresh Welsh produce at the local farmers’ markets, farm shops and fruit farms; if cooking on holiday is a thing to be avoided at all costs, Happy Jakes is three miles from ancient market town Cowbridge where hungry sorts will find over a few dozen pubs and restaurants. Most happily of all, Mandy runs a hot food van at the park on Friday and Saturday evenings and Saturday and Sunday morning during high season: have the popular Hawaiian burger for the best of sunny smiles.
