Red Rock Wild Camping: Prefect place to chill

General

  • Wild camping farm site under a mile from Margam Country Park
  • A two-minute cycle from the country park; 15 minutes from beaches
  • Communal firepit; dens and swings for kids; access to a cycling trail

Set yourself up for quite the easy-breezy stay at Red Rock Wild Camping… just under a mile away from Margam Country Park, this site is well-based for outdoor activities. To add to that, there’s a real wildlife haven on site too, as it’s based on a working farm with a five-acre ancient woodland and a four-acre field.

How to get to Margam’s 850-acre deer park, castle, 12th-century abbey and orangery? Well, if you’re not taking the 10-minute drive, there’s a cycling trail alongside the site that will get you to the park in under 10 minutes – once there, there are paddleboarding, mountain biking, Go Ape or canoeing activities to dive right into (once you’ve sorted your equipment and booked your slots, of course).

Under the old oaks on site, there’s a natural play area of its own – kids may want to build a den or play around the swings and log steps. In the late evening, the site also runs a large communal firepit where guests can wind down from the day.

Don’t forget that this is a working farm, so you may spot cows, sheep and horses in the surrounding fields. There’s a stream running through the edge of the woodland and a portaloo here too.

A five-minute drive from the nearest M4 junction and halfway between Cardiff and Swansea, you’ll be well-connected to the big South Wales cities and any capers further out (meaning that this site is suited to a quick stop at Margam if you’re moving onto your next destination soon).

Please note

No gas barbecues allowed.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

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

There are no bins onsite: all rubbish will need to be taken home with you.

    Absolutely shocking campsite. No hard standing for pitching up or proper toilet as advised.
    Porta loo was disgusting. Large party of adults up partying until 130 in the morning.

From the manager...

I'm very disappointed to read your review. Our campsite is very special to us as it is also our home and I'm distressed to see there was nothing you liked about us or our part of the country.
I didn't realise there were mosquitos and 'bads' here in October, but I will always find a positive. These insects are vital for the beautiful wildlife we have here, particularly the birds.
Finally, our family has a phrase, mosquitos, flies and 'bads' only hang around organic matter. Hope the remainder of your holiday was ok and you found your way back home safely

    First time in a pod, really enjoyed not having to put up a tent for a change.

    Disliked: 

    The battery to power the pod didn’t last for very long

From the manager...

Thanks for the feedback on the battery. The darker nights are coming in and I think I need to provide the pods with more than one battery pack. I've also noticed if the heater is used the batteries don't last long at all. Appreciate your comments though and I will change. Mari

    Very friendly & attentive host, a lovely place & area. Like that you are able to choose where you want to pitch up.

    Disliked: 

    There were was a minor issue in my opinion, with there only being one portaloo, and no sinks etc, the 2 days we were there the hand wash was Never changed and it was just a simple changing of the packet. Also portaloo run out of toilet roll.

    We used the tyre swing which we loved but did notice a hornets nest on this tree just to make the owner aware.

    The campsite is beautiful! Lots of grass space and a great woodland. We walked into Margam Park which is right next door and drove to some beautiful beaches nearby. So, lots to see and do! The place is well affordable for families with lots of children as they go for free. The cheerful and kind owner Mari makes this place to what it is: one of the best campsites!

    Lack of any facilities

From the manager...

I've been requested to respond to your review, but I really don't know what to write. The description of the site is accurate, if you wanted facilities like a clubhouse, bar and entertainment each night, this is not the site for you (but surely you read this beforehand). However, we have 2 fully functional toilets and 2 showers on site plus a portaloo on the field. You rated 1 for value for money which I shake my head at, as I really don't know what you expect for the £12 you paid. I can only accept your review with disappointment and wish you luck on your future travels.

Local attractions

This is a place where getting your seaside fix is easy. In fact, Porthcawl (15 minutes’ drive) has seven beaches in total, including the pink rocks of Pink Bay and the family-friendly Sandy Bay. Several are a haven for watersports, surfing and swimming, but if you want to stick to dry land, take in the atmosphere from Coney Beach (15 minutes) and its seaside funfair.

More of that splendid sand and sea can be tracked down with a trek across the Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes (20 minutes) or boating, windsurfing, jetskiing, kayaking or kitesurfing at Aberavon beach (20 minutes). Walks and cycles along the promenade are even more peaceful, of course.

If you like life on two wheels, Afan Forest (20 minutes) has mountain biking or hiking trails and more cycles (or walks) can be had around Bryngarw Country Park (20 minutes) or Bwlch Mountain (35 minutes).

If you’ve got kids to entertain, a great place is Wiggleys Fun Farm (10 minutes’ drive), where there’s the choice of adventure play areas and animal activities.

Must see

  • Aberdulais Falls (14.1 kilometres)
  • National Waterfront Museum (17.3 kilometres)
  • Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre (26.0 kilometres)
