- Llantwit Major Beach 10 minutes’ drive; Cardiff half an hour
- On-site farm shop selling fresh locally grown produce
Want to stay in a rural spot while still being in a prime position for trips to Cardiff (half an hour’s drive) and the coast (15 minutes)? Then you might like to stay at Cowbridge Farm Camping, a laidback pop-up site within the grounds of a family farm in the Vale of Glamorgan, about a mile and a half from the pleasant market town of Cowbridge.
The main pitching field is flat and well maintained, with uninterrupted, far-reaching views over a landscape of gentle hills laced with country lanes. Facilities on site are simple, but guests do have access to portaloo toilets. Also – handily for anyone planning a picnic – there is an on-site farm shop where you can pick up top-quality local produce. Alternatively, it's a five-minute drive to Cowbridge’s cafés, restaurants, pubs and supermarkets.
A walk in the surrounding area will reveal quaint stone churches like St Brynach's and St John The Baptist (both within 20 minutes’ walk) and historic castles like St Quentin's (half an hour). Those who prefer a spot of angling can head to Hazel Court Fishery (five minutes’ drive), while Llantwit Major Beach (10 minutes) is popular for rockpooling.
Cowbridge Farm Camping is a pet-friendly site, with four-legged friends welcome to come along and join you during your stay. Any kids staying with you are also free to interact with the animals that live on the farm.

Run by the National Trust, Dyffryn Gardens (20 minutes’ drive) includes formal lawns, an arboretum and themed areas such as the fragrant Rose Garden, plus a glasshouse full of exotic orchids. Although the elegant Victorian mansion is not open to the public, it acts as a splendid background to these 55 acres of greenery.
The system of sand dunes at Merthyr Mawr Nature Reserve (20 minutes) is home to the so-called Big Dipper, the highest dune in Wales. You can walk or ride a horse (you’ll need a permit for the latter) around this landscape, with its rare plants, fungi and vibrant wildflowers, including orchids.
On the outskirts of Cardiff, St. Fagans National Museum of History (25 minutes) illustrates Welsh life through the ages with dozens of reconstructed original buildings, from an Iron Age roundhouse to an 18th-century woollen mill and a Victorian school.
