- Quiet rural site in St Brides Major, a half-hour walk from the beach
- 15 minutes' drive from surf lessons and other watersports in Porthcawl
- Two pubs and a farm shop within easy walking distance
It’s all about simple seaside sojourns at Pool Farm, a friendly, quiet rural site in the village of St Brides Major and a half-hour stroll from Southerndown beach.
This is a super spot for a laidback break, with plenty of fresh-air antics available along this stunning stretch of the south Wales coast. A riding centre is in the village, there’s a golf course a few minutes drive away (beware sea views distracting you from your swing), and the Wales Coast Path is half an hour away for a bit of leg-stretching.
Plus, of course, those beaches – relax on the sands at Southerndown or take the 15-minute drive to Porthcawl for surf lessons, kiteboarding and other coastal adventures.
The site itself has been left blissfully straightforward, the peaceful pitches served by just the basics (showers, toilets and a washing-up area). A fab little farm shop is a few minutes’ walk away for organic meat supplies and there are a couple of pubs within walking distance for pints and plates of grub.

Let’s start with those beaches… you can’t venture very far round these parts without stumbling upon one or the other. Southerndown beach (aka Dunraven Bay) is the closest, and a fab place for keen-eyed types to do a spot of fossil hunting or rockpooling. Ogmore-by-Sea and surfers' fave Rest Bay are other top picks nearby.
Those who like their beach days served up with plenty of antics should head over to Porthcawl, 15 minutes away – here there’s a surf school, a kiteboarding centre and an activity centre that can fix up days of kayaking, canyoning and coasteering. Golfers can wield a club in Porthcawl or Southerndown, and riders can saddle up for pony days, beach canters and horseback pub crawls at the stables in St Brides Major.
If you fancy a break from the open-air stuff, there’s a sizeable outlet shopping village 20 minutes’ drive from the site (also a fab place to pick up extra kit for your outdoorsy adventures).
