General

  • Family-run site on a working farm in the rural Vale of Glamorgan
  • 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.

Such a shame, this site could be so much better.22/08/2022

  • Liked: 

    Basic camping, easy pitch up. Level ground.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of basic toilet facility. One toilet which was damaged, sink with broken tap. Expensive for just a field.
    Such a shame, this site has loads of potential, all it needs is a good clean toilet, maybe even two?
    Have a feeling the site might also be used for holding car boot sales, but not sure.

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. There are also farmyard animals and workshops where you can observe craftsmen at work.
