- Shuttle bus from outside site to Cardiff city centre, 10 miles away
- In the grounds of a hotel, with access to guest bar and dining room
City breaks are fab. Beach hols are fab too. So it surely follows that combining a bit of both with a south Wales stay at The Vale Park Hotel and Touring Site must be doubly fab.
For your urban wanderings, it’s a 10-mile jaunt into Cardiff, where there’s heaps of stuff to keep you occupied for many a day on end: shops, museums, nightlife, the castle and rugby matches should get you off to a good start. One city aspect you’ll not need to experience is the search for a parking space, for there’s a handy shuttle bus that runs from a bus stop right outside the site to the city centre seven days a week. (Love a bargain? The shuttle is free on Saturdays and Sundays.)
Time to make a break for the beach? It’s a mere 10 minutes’ drive to get to Barry Island for days of sandcastle building, fish and chip scoffing and family-friendly hours at the amusement arcades or Barry Island Pleasure Beach. And if it’s more exotic beaches you had in mind, you’re only 10 minutes’ walk from Cardiff Airport should the mood take you to leap on a flight somewhere more far-flung.
Scoop up supermarket supplies while you’re in Barry and you’re welcome to stoke the coals of a barbecue back at base; if you’re more in the mood to eat out or sip cold beers in smart surrounds you’re equally welcome to join fellow guests at the hotel’s bar and dining room.

We would stay again
From the manager...
Good morning Julie Comer, I remember you quite clearly as you were the lady that came into the hotel on arrival and looked like you had never slept a day in your life (so miserable) so another sleepless night shouldn't have made a lot of difference to your well being, thankfully you only booked for 1 night! yes we are between 2 roads but YOU chose the location, you were also the lady (on my CCTV) that didn't pick up after her 2 dogs, our shower block is not state of the art but more than adequate and cleaned twice a day, I gather we won't be seeing you next year? kind regards, Sharon.
Excellent place to stay

The beach at Barry Island is a smashing sandy stretch that’s fab for families, with its sheltered shallow waters, numerous cafés and amusements to play with; it also welcomes dogs in certain areas. If you’re looking for something a little different, head half an hour along the coast to Southerndown for surf schools, or to Ogmore-by-Sea to ride horses along the sand.
Cardiff’s a cracking city to visit, too – on top of a generous range of shops, restaurants and the like, the Welsh capital is also home to all manner of leisure facilities including an ice rink, go-kart track and whitewater rafting centre. If you’re after something a bit more cultural there are always shows to take in at the Wales Millennium Centre, and visits to Cardiff Castle and the excellent (and free) indoor/outdoor exhibits at St Fagans National Museum of History.
More? There are three golf courses within a 10-minute drive, a designer outlet village half an hour away and a bunch more castles to saunter around (Fonmon Castle, five minutes away, is always good for a foray).
