Vishwell Farm Caravan Site: Views across the site

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 (€0.59) applies for the use of the shower.

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

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

  • Winter electric hardstanding touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Good to be able to choose your own pitch upon arrival (although there were only 2 left when we arrived, haha!)

    Huge size pitch.

    Within 10 mins walk of lovely local pub, then a further 10 mins to a Beefeater with great food. Both safely accessible by footpaths.

    Level pitches.

    Great phone signal (o2/giffgaff/EE)

    Great recycling facilities.

    Toilets were a bit dated, but clean.

    No hand dryers or paper towels so bring your own.

    Very novel waste water facilities (brilliant idea!)

    Disliked: 

    We didn't need to use it, but noticed that the washing up area wasn't under any form of shelter, which, considering the British weather, isn't the best idea!

    Upon arrival you text or email the owners to say what pitch you've chosen. I didn't receive any acknowledgement, or an "Enjoy your stay" reply which, having camped for years elsewhere, is rather unusual.

    A minor gripe was that at 10am on our departure day, one of the staff came along and (very politely) asked what time we were leaving, as the hedges were being trimmed and our van was, essentially, in the way of the machinery within the next half an hour or so. According to our booking info, departure was by 12pm.

    Fortunately, we'd decided beforehand that we were going to leave earlier than 12pm as we'd got a long drive home, but had we have not done so, we'd have been very miffed to have been asked to leave earlier than stated.

    All very minor points, but just giving a balanced review and I would stay here again.

    No checking in dramas, just rocked up, found a pitch and left.
    Good location for us, right next to regular running bus stop into Cardiff for the rugby game.
    Water and electric easy to find and use.

    Disliked: 

    We didn’t need to use them so I haven’t included in my rating but I wouldn’t of been happy with the facilities if I had to, very dirty and the 50p meter is a faff.

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)
  • Millennium Stadium (6.9 kilometres)
  • Cardiff Castle (7.1 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Clevedon Court (29.7 kilometres)
  • Dunster Castle (31.7 kilometres)
