General

  • Peaceful site for families, couples and relaxed sorts
  • Well-priced café serving breakfasts, cream teas and off-licence sales
  • A 10-minutes walk from the beach

Sites with Jurassic Coast views, campfires allowed, a short stroll from the beach and an even shorter one to an award-winning pub should always get your holiday vote. Add in an acclaimed café on site and a pub a couple of minutes' stroll down the road, and you'll likely hail Heritage Coast Campsite as a winner.

Based in Glamorgan's Cowbridge and 10 minutes' walk from Monknash beach across public footpaths, the much-liked Heritage Coast comes with the Monks Rest Café, a recent venture from Phillipa, Glynn and team that dishes up breakfasts in the type of belly-busting size of which you might thoroughly approve.

Cream teas, Friday night suppers, off-license sales and properly-sized coffees/hot drinks are also on offer, all are at reasonable prices – and the café is quite arty and information-based too, with an art/photography gallery and heaps of leaflets and tourist info about the local area.

Amenities include ladies' and gents' blocks each with two toilets, two showers, two sinks and a hand dryer, plus a hairdryer in the ladies'. Disabled bathroom facilities, a utility room with two basins (hot water) and a freezer are also on site.

Campfires are allowed if you want to sort your own nosh – ask Glyn or Philippa about hiring a fire basket – or you could have a meal at the award-winning Plough and Harrow pub two minutes' walk away where there's also live music on Saturday evenings.

Whichever you decide, take time for sitting back as dusk falls to listen out for the hooting of the local owls: Heritage Coast Campsite is in a wildlife haven too.

Directions


Heritage Coast Campsite is in the hamlet of Monknash three miles north-west of Llantwit Major.

Leave the M4 at junction 35, and follow the dual carriageway to Bridgend. At the fifth roundabout take the sign posted turning to St Brides Major (B4265).

About one and a half miles beyond St Brides Major, a signposted right turn leads to Monknash and Llantwit Major. Continue to the village of Monknash, follow the sign for The Plough and Harrow, take a right hand turn past the front entrance of The Pub, and continue down the lane for approximately half a mile.

Pass three cottages immediately followed by a stone wall signposted Heritage Coast Campsite, enter the drive and turn left into the campsite. Reception is on your right at the site entrance.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Coastal walks and beaches, museums and castles, and heaps of outdoor activities are all around to get stuck into.

If you want to stick to the coast – it's a heritage one after all – try out one of the local surf schools or some fishing nearby at Penarth Beach or Wick. The Glamorgan Heritage Coast runs for 14 miles from Porthcawl to Aberthawl and has some highly scenic walks as well as even more scenic horse rides to be had on its beaches.

Ogmore Castle and Fonmon Castle are two nearby sites to sort some Welsh history (as is the excellent St Fagans National History Museum a short drive away in Cardiff), and the National Trust's Dyffryn Gardens will be a good day out for green-fingered types.

Also nearby, look for the local karting centre; Taskforce Skirmish Paintball and a few rounds of Welsh golf; have a look through the Heritage Coast Campsite info leaflets to get you started.
