Fancy a pint? Want to walk for less than a minute to get your mitts on it? You’re in luck at the Three Golden Cups, a spacious family-friendly site that just happens to be handily located in the grounds of a friendly pub. Extra holiday points apply here for the fact that it’s only a 15-minute walk from the sandy beach of Dunraven Bay, with sea views from various corners of the site.
Pitch up in the grass field here (there’s plenty of space so you can afford to spread out) and you’ll be mere steps away from a range of beers and wines that can be supped in the cosy bar or out in the beer garden. Settle in for a little longer if you like and partake of the full menu of tasty snacks and meals. No guilty microwave ding here – everything’s freshly prepared by the in-house chefs.
When even that’s too far to haul yourself to acquire a drink, scooch on over to the mobile bar that’s been set up in the field to provide an even more convenient source of refreshment to weary travellers. If you’re just in need of a cooling drink, you can avail yourself of one of the drinking water taps around the field.
A quick amble across the field brings you to the toilet block, which has separate male and female shower facilities and a washing-up area. There’s no wifi at the site itself but you can login at the pub when you pop in to get your food and drinks.
If you’d prefer to turn your hand to cooking your own dinner you’re most welcome to light up a barbie on your pitch. The nearest supermarkets are 15 minutes’ drive away in Bridgend, but there’s a farm shop just a few minutes up the road where you can pick up local organic meats to chuck on the grill.

Apart from location not impressed at all with this campsite
From the manager...
Thanks for the comments, and whilst some are justified, to give your comments vigour you have departed with some of the facts. It was an end of season party and perhaps I misjudged it but at your. request the music was turned off immediately and I apologised for my misjudgement. It is also interesting to note that friends of mine were camping close to you and reported no such disturbance but despite that I again apologise for my misjudgement but perhaps understandably given the nature of the party as after a long hard season I was treating our hard working staff to a little reward before they went back to their respective universities.
Love this site have been twice now and will surely return next year.

Most guests’ first port of call from here is the beach at Dunraven Bay, a 15-minute walk away. Lots of beachy tastes are catered for here – there’s a sandy beach, a stretch of shingle and plenty of rock pools to pole about in. If you’d like to learn how to get on to the water or want to brush up your board technique, sign up for a surfing lesson at Southerndown Surf School, next to the beach.
If your idea of beach bliss involves a dream sequence of riding a horse in the surf, you can bring that to life with a seaside trek from the riding centre in Ogmore-by-Sea, five minutes’ drive from the site. Meanwhile, golfers can wield a club on the limestone heath course at Southerndown Golf Club, 10 minutes away, and walkers can hit the trails of the Wales Coast Path to hike for as long as they like (honestly – there’s 870 miles of path in total around the whole coastline).
Wales is famed for its castles, and your nearest here is Ogmore Castle, 10 minutes away – the Norman stone castle, part of which dates back to 1100, is still largely intact. A little further away (20 minutes from the site) is Coity Castle, which mainly dates from the 14th century and is a great place for kids to charge around and enact knights’ battles. Both of these sites are free to visit.
