General

A warm welcome awaits you at Acorn Camping. We are a small peaceful family owned rural site, situated on the Heritage Coast 1 mile from Llantwit Major and the beach. The four and a half acre site is surrounded by farmland; we have 75 pitches and can accommodate Touring Caravans, Motor Homes and Tents. The pitches are individually marked, some with trees and hedgerows providing extra privacy and shelter. We are a family orientated site and operate a quiet time between 11pm and 7am.

On site we have a modern amenity building with free hot showers. Both the ladies and gents shower rooms also contain a separate hand basin and a place to get dressed away from the shower. There are free hairdryers in both the ladies and gents and shavers points in the gents.

The baby/family changing room contains a shower cubicle, toilet, and hand sink, along with potty, baby shower seat and baby changing board. We also have facilities for our disabled guests, with a large open plan shower room. We have a dishwashing area and laundry area with a washing machine and a tumble dryer. We also have an iron and board, and an electric socket- perfect for those who can't live without their hair straighteners, which both run on electric tokens.

A range of camping gas and Calor gas is available so do not worry if you run out. The owners live on the park to ensure the smooth running of the site. As a family site we ask for quiet between 11pm and 7am and no loud radios, which ensures that everybody can have a peaceful holiday.

We have a children's play area with large wooden climbing frame, complete with swing, monkey bars and a 14ft trampoline. There is an indoor games room with pool table, table tennis, air hockey.

There is a small shop on site, stocked with all your forgotten essentials
