A beautiful setting in the shadows of Ogmore Castle

General

  • Friendly glamping site in green countryside, overlooking Dunraven bay
  • Dry and warm bell tents with toilet and shower facilities on site
  • Have meals at the local farmhouse or traditional country pub

Welcome to Tipi Wales, where you will receive a warm welcome to a refreshing glamping break or holiday, in new luxury hybrid canvas bell tents added in 2019.

Set up for overnight stays, birthday breaks or general holidays, the 18ft tipis come in different styles and are kitted out with interior rugs, cushions and throws along with airbeds to suit your party. The bell tents have a generous living area: on summer days you can roll up the sides and take in the surrounding views from inside the tent.

The team can supply a small bell-style barbecue for use outside along with cooking utensils, plastic glasses, plates, cutlery, pots, pans and a kettle. All you need to bring to the site is your clothing and bedding.

The units are dry and warm, and there are toilet and shower facilities on-site. There's also a farmhouse close by which offers breakfast, afternoon teas and often lunch. A traditional country pub is just next door for drinks, food and occasional live music on Friday or Saturday nights; also just across the lane is a restaurant serving breakfast on the weekends.

Group bookings of 8 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

    Anthony was very helpful both before and during our stay. The bell tent was a good size and the location was very convenient for trips to the beach. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked: 

    Tent was furnished and already up when we arrived. Anthony had called earlier in the week to see if we needed any extras etc and was ready waiting at the site for our arrival. He was friendly and helpful.
    Site was clean and fairly quiet with plenty of room.
    Great to be within walking distance to the beach and have a pub next door.

    Disliked: 

    We had a small leak in the tent in the last night when there was heavy wind and rain.
    Showers on site weren't great, accessible toilet isnt very accessible witha small step to get in and a heavy stiff door that doesn't lock easily.
    There was also a lack of information on where to eat and local amenities. Pub kitchen closes at 7:30 on a Sunday.

Local attractions

Tipi Wales overlooks Dunraven bay, locally known as Southerndown beach. The beach is easily accessed by a short walk or by car, and is a popular starting point for sailing, surfing and fishing.

For local walks, make for the sand dunes at Merthyer Mawr, which overlook the Bristol Channel, or to Porthcawl, Ogmore-by-Sea and walks by Ogmore and Candleston castles. Woodland walks, castles, villages and fab beaches are all around this Glamorgan Heritage Coast setting.

Horse riding is available from Ogmore Farm set under Ogmore Castle, where two-hour treks leave from the yard twice a day to canter along beaches and past high sand dunes. Or leave from the farm to go across the stepping stones on the River Ewenny, then over the swinging bridge to reach the village of Merthyr Mawr. From there, walk through the village towards the dunes, past a pretty church, wildlife to spot and strawberry fields to pick from (in season, charge applies)

For golf, Southerndown Golf Club a couple of miles away is a links course making up one of the driest courses in Wales; golf is available all year round for members and visitors.

Walk west from Ogmore Farm to get to Candleston Castle at the entrance to the sand dune slack of Merthyr Mawr Warren, or walk, drive or take the bus to the farm and then through Merthyr Mawr village.
