- Small and friendly site in the Vale of Glamorgan
- Insulated and double-glazed pods with barbecue and electric
- Firewood for sale on site
Small, friendly, based in the viewsome Vale of Glamorgan, close to the equally viewsome Glamorgan Heritage Coast… we think you might like to pitch up at Cowbridge's .
The timber camping pods at this very friendly and popular site are pretty tidy too, set in a quiet grass field surrounded by trees so you can relax rurally – but they're fully insulated and double glazed with electric lighting and power sockets to be in cosy comfort too. A communal loo and shower block is on site along with kitchen facilities.
A barbie area is set up outside on the balcony of each pod – the balcony has a porch light too if you fancy midnight snacking – so you can settle down for a long comfy evening in your own space while supervising the other half sorting the dinner… we think you might like that too.
Open from 01/04/2017 to 21/10/2017

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

The coast and countryside in this part of Wales is what we at can only call pretty ruddy spectacular – and it's all easily accessed from .
Tackle the heritage coastal path, go paintballing, have a long walk among the splendid scenery, beaches and sandy bays, or have some horse riding through the Glamorgan sand dunes… And then back to base for a barbie or a drop-in to a country pub for dinner – all sounds pretty ruddy perfect.
