Vishwell Farm Caravan Site: Gravel pitches

General

  • Well-maintained and peaceful touring pitches on a working farm
  • A 10-minute drive from Barry Island; 20 minutes from central Cardiff
  • Village setting; pub, café and bus stops within a few minutes' walk

What a splendid location for a Vale of Glamorgan break that’s packed with variety – Vishwell Farm Caravan Park is in the little village of Wenvoe and handily placed for rural walks, beach days and city days in nearby Cardiff.

Access to all of the above is fairly straightforward: a 20-minute drive will get you into the centre of Cardiff for days of shopping, dining, culture and rugby, to the cute town of Cowbridge for walks and foodie treats, or to Llantwit Major for soaring cliffs and fossil-hunting on the beach. Even closer at a 10-minute drive are the seaside towns of Penarth and Barry, the latter being famed to British TV fans as the setting for Gavin and Stacey.

Don’t fancy the drive? The village’s bus stops are only a couple of minutes’ walk away, with services to Cardiff and Barry. Elsewhere in the village are a good local pub and a garden centre that’s got a well-liked café – so you won’t have to go far in search of breakfasts, dinners or local ales either.

It’s not all about the location though – the pitches here are well maintained too, set up as part of a peaceful working farm and with access to facilities including toilets, showers, chemical disposal and water. Dogs are welcome to join you on site here too, and there are plenty of great places to take them out for a walk nearby.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

A charge of £0.50 ($0.92) applies for the use of the shower.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the campground/park are unlit.

There is no reception building on-site: on arrival please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The best way to explore your immediate surroundings is to head out on foot, taking in trails around Wenvoe Wood or heading off to Dinas Powys to see the ‘salmon leaps’ in the river and stop by at an ancient hill fort.

Alternatively, head off to the National Trust’s Dyffryn Gardens (10 minutes’ drive/an hour’s walk) to stroll through a lovely outdoor space set up as a series of ‘outdoor rooms’, or St Fagans National Museum of History (10 minutes’ drive) for a free wander through an excellent open-air museum.

You’re not far from the coast here, either, so keen walkers should also plan days out on nearby stretches of the Wales Coast Path. Llantwit Major (20 minutes) makes a good starting point for a walk taking in the sandstone cliffs of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, or you could head to Ogmore-by-Sea (half an hour) to scramble through the dunes, see the ancient castle or ride horses along the beach.

For many visitors, a day at Barry Island (10 minutes) has to be on the cards too – you can join Gavin and Stacey-themed tours here, try out all the rides at the funfair or just go along for sunbathing and swimming from the sandy beach.

Must see

  • St Fagans: National History Museum (5.0 kilometres)
