General

  • Family-run caravan park with spectacular sea views
  • Under a mile from Rhoose and 15 minutes' drive from Barry Island
  • Beer garden with play area, bar serving food, pools and gym

If the thought of the gym doesn't tempt you while on hol, how about a beer garden instead? And spectacular views on a spotless and modern park right on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast – with plenty to do for guests great and small? Have a viewsome and well-equipped stay at Fontygary Leisure Park.

Newly built and opened in 2015 less than a mile from the lively little town of Rhoose, Fontygary is a family-run park with lush views over Fontygary's bay and over the Glamorgan coast. Barry Island is 15 minutes' drive away for amusing times and Cardiff within 35 minutes for city sightseeing, but if you don't want to stir even that far, the 14 miles of the heritage coast are within easy reach for rambles.

Settle down in the handily placed beer garden to drink them all in (even more handily, the play area is here too), then rouse yourself to investigate some of the plentiful leisure facilities on the park: there's tidal bowling as well as a 25-metre pool with waterslide and splash pool available to guests for an extra charge; a family entertainment lounge with bar, café and kids' activity areas, and regular events from family shenanigans to wedding fairs.

Food is dished up at the Shoreway bar, to have indoors or outside among the Glamorgan coast views: meals are offered all day from 9am and include Sunday roasts, kids' meals and weekly deals. The Shoreway is also the venue for (adults only, please) evening entertainment at weekends including cabaret, discos and talent competitions (subject to change), and for main sporting matches on the big screen.

Excellent amenities are throughout the park, including an immaculate washroom block with wheelchair accessible showers and toilets. Barbecues are allowed and gas cylinders are available for sale.

    Disliked: 

    We booked a fully serviced hard standing pitch. Upon arrival our pitch was four inches deep in liquid mud!!! The site called us in the morning to say it was very wet but there was no mention of the mud. I thought as we’d booked a hard standing pitch the rain would not matter. I was wrong! Apparently their hard standing pitches are covered with a layer of grass. Not much point calling them hard standing!! Luckily we have a 4WD and could move our caravan however we could see plenty of ruts where people had got very stuck!! I’m sure the clubhouse would have been lovely but we didn’t fancy wading through mud to get to it!!

    Nice swimming pool. Kids enjoyed the slides. It was clean showers were lovely and warm. Club house clean and tidy.

    Disliked: 

    Booked site as they had kids entertainment but kids halloween disco was sold out begining of October we were not informed this on arrival. The reason we booked was a disappointment for my kids. Pumpkin making and broom making a bit pricey and had to pay for swimming although we booked for a week. A bit pricey to stay with a family.
