Hot Welsh breakfast baps made freshly to order

General

  • Peaceful site for families, couples and relaxed sorts
  • Well-priced café serving breakfasts, cream teas and off-licence sales
  • A 10-minutes walk from the beach

Sites with Jurassic Coast views, campfires allowed, a short stroll from the beach and an even shorter one to an award-winning pub should always get your holiday vote... add in an acclaimed café on site and a pub a couple of minutes' stroll down the road, and you'll likely hail Heritage Coast Campsite as a winner.

Based in Glamorgan's Cowbridge and 10 minutes' walk from Monknash beach across public footpaths, the much-liked Heritage Coast comes with the Monks Rest Café, a recent venture from Phillipa, Glynn and team that dishes up breakfasts in the type of belly-busting size of which you might thoroughly approve.

Cream teas, Friday night suppers, off-license sales and properly-sized coffees/hot drinks are also on offer, all are at reasonable prices – and the café is quite arty and information-based too, with an art/photography gallery and heaps of leaflets and tourist info about the local area.

Amenities include ladies' and gents' blocks each with two toilets, two showers, two sinks and a hand dryer, plus a hairdryer in the ladies'. Disabled bathroom facilities, a utility room with two basins (hot water) and a freezer are also on site.

Campfires are allowed if you want to sort your own nosh – ask Glyn or Philippa about hiring a fire basket – or you could have a meal at the award-winning Plough and Harrow pub two minutes' walk away where there's also live music on Saturday evenings.

Whichever you decide, take time for sitting back as dusk falls to listen out for the hooting of the local owls: Heritage Coast Campsite is in a wildlife haven too...

    Beautiful area, clean campsite

    Disliked: 

    Concerned that when I asked if there were more than 2 loos got quite an aggressive reply. I was then told that campers could all use the disabled loo as people with disabilities never camped there and if they did she would tell me! Disability awareness training needed.

    Lovely, welcoming and friendly campsite. Extremely friendly staff, excellent facilities, and the food was outstanding. Not one issue with our visit, however it was quite difficult to find - better indication to where the site was would be better 👍

    Disliked: 

    50p for 5 minute shower. Would be better as a pound for 10 minutes.

Local attractions

Coastal walks, beaches, museums, castles and outdoor activities are all around to get stuck into.

If you want to stick to the coast – it's a heritage one after all – try out one of the local surf schools or some fishing nearby at Penarth Beach or Wick. The Glamorgan Heritage Coast runs for 14 miles from Porthcawl to Aberthawl and has some highly scenic walks as well as even more scenic horse rides to be had on its beaches.

Ogmore Castle and Fonmon Castle are two nearby sites to sort some Welsh history (as is the excellent St Fagans National History Museum a short drive away in Cardiff), and the National Trust's Dyffryn Gardens will be a good day out for green-fingered types.

Also nearby, look for the local karting centre; Taskforce Skirmish Paintball and a few rounds of Welsh golf; have a look through the Heritage Coast Campsite info leaflets to get you started.

Must see

  • St Fagans: National History Museum (13.1 miles)
  • Castell Coch (15.5 miles)
  • Millennium Stadium (16.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Holnicote Estate (15.0 miles)
  • Watersmeet (17.3 miles)
