  • Well-maintained friendly park five minutes' drive from Llantwit Major
  • A 10-minute drive from the coast and half an hour from Cardiff
  • A short walk from a go-karting circuit for adults and older kids
Coast days, castle trips, Cardiff wanderings and a cluster of family-friendly attractions… it’s safe to say that there’s plenty to do in the area around Llandow Touring Caravan Park. This spacious south Wales spot is surrounded by field and farm, giving it a sheltered and secluded vibe that’s fab for a family break; a warm welcome awaits here for all, including kids and holidaying hounds. Both have been catered for on the playtime front too – there’s a fenced-off play area for the kids and a dog run area for the pups. And as over-tired tiddlers are no fun for anyone, the site also enforces a noise curfew to give a good chance of peaceful slumbers for all. The park’s not as middle-of-nowhere as its rural backdrop may suggest – restaurants, pubs, shops and other handy bits and bobs are less than 10 minutes’ drive away in Cowbridge (to the north) or Llantwit Major (to the south); there’s also a well-stocked shop on site for times when you just fancy taking it easy. Beach days and coastal walks (both with mighty fine views) are about 10 minutes' drive away. For active types, a go-karting centre is within strolling distance and surf lessons, horse riding and golf within a 15-minute drive. Cardiff city centre’s about a half-hour drive away: take a train from Llantwit Major if you fancy leaving the wheels behind.

Electric hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: Welcomed on arrival with good pre-visit comms (we brought our arrival time forward from the evening to 1pm), everything ready when we got there. A secure site with all the necessary amenities in good order, good showers and washroom, well maintained service areas (Elsan, recycling, fresh water). Huge spacing between pitches, there are plenty of semi permanent Tourers there which bodes well and means the site can be quieter than it appears. Weeks of rain before arrival meant the grass was unavoidably suboptimal but the wardens allowed for this with pitching instructions so we had the side door onto the hardstanding. Very easy access to Cowbridge, Barry, Bridgend and Llantwit Major station just a 5 min drive or short taxi away. Race circuit next door was not a problem and was not in use when we were there. Top tip - read the directions they send and avoid the narrow village from the North, go via Cowbridge link road - we managed ok on the way there but avoided the squeeze coming home. A good base to explore from.

Disliked: Nothing

Local attractions

To the beach – but first, a choice: shall it be nearby Nash Point (10 minutes’ drive) for paddles and dog walks around the lighthouse, or will you rise early for a beachside brekkie at Llantwit Major’s beachside café? Maybe you want to hit the surf at Southerndown (15 minutes); lessons can be had down there for folk who haven’t quite got the knack of standing on a board. Or perhaps you’ll head off to Ogmore (15 minutes) to fulfil that dream of riding a horse on the sands... Choices await castle-seekers too – Castell Coch, Caerphilly Castle and Ogmore Castle are all within 40 minutes’ drive. Dyffryn Gardens is 25 minutes away if you’re more about the outdoors, or you could try the Welsh Hawking Centre (20 minutes) to see the big birds take flight. Should your favourite outdoor view involve a glass of wine, you’re in luck: Llanerch Vineyard and Glyndwr Vineyard are both within a half-hour drive. Speed-seeking sorts (adults and kids over eight) will no doubt want to take to the track at the South Wales Karting Centre: it’s a 10-minute stroll from the site, and with an excellent café to take care of any non-driving companions.
