Our small, friendly campsite of Picket Pods, based in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales, offers a new and unique slant to traditional camping. Our facilities allow you to experience the full enjoyment of the rural outdoors from the comfort of one of our cosy camping pods.
Set in a quiet grass field surrounded by trees, our timber camping pods are fully insulated and double glazed with electric lighting and power sockets. Each pod has its own balcony with porch light and barbecue area, so that time spent outside the pod is comfortable and contained, allowing your to enjoy long evenings relaxing in your own space.
On site there is a communal toilet and shower block plus kitchen facilities.
Tourist board rating
Locally you can enjoy the nearby Heritage Coastal Path, rugged beaches or sandy bays, long walks through fantastic scenery or horse riding through the sand dunes. You can then end your day enjoying a barbecue around a campfire or dining out in one of the many country pubs found nearby.
Also located in the Vale is the pretty market town of Cowbridge, with its plethora of quaint shops which will tempt even the most discerning of customers. There are also several golf courses close by, together with historical references for those wanting to explore the past.
For those after activities, there are many attractions, which include arts and crafts, paint balling fishing or horse riding. The beach at Barry Island is also only a short distance along the coast which is not only home to the hit TV series Gavin and Stacey but also plays host to an exciting funfair for those who like the thrill of fast rides!
