City breaks are fab. Beach hols are fab too. So it surely follows that combining a bit of both with a south Wales stay at The Vale Park Hotel and Touring Site must be doubly fab.
For your urban wanderings, it’s a 10-mile jaunt into Cardiff, where there’s heaps of stuff to keep you occupied for many a day on end: shops, museums, nightlife, the castle, rugby matches and the chance to chat with daleks at the Dr Who Experience should get you off to a good start. One city aspect you’ll not need to experience is the search for a parking space, for there’s a handy free shuttle bus that runs from a bus stop right outside the site, to the city centre on a Saturday and Sunday.
Time to make a break for the beach? It’s a mere 10 minutes’ drive to get to Barry Island for days of sandcastle building, fish and chip scoffing and family-friendly hours at the amusement arcades or Barry Island Pleasure Beach. And if it’s more exotic beaches you had in mind, you’re only 10 minutes’ walk from Cardiff Airport should the mood take you to leap on a flight somewhere more far-flung.
Scoop up supermarket supplies while you’re in Barry and you’re welcome to stoke the coals of a barbecue back at base; if you’re more in the mood to eat out or sip cold beers in smart surrounds you’re equally welcome to join fellow guests at the hotel’s bar and dining room.
Open from 03/01/2019 to 11/01/2019

Wonderful little gem of a site . Really friendly staff
From the manager...
David, you were informed by me that I would not be putting any entertainment on the site for children, and thats what you were looking for, I most deffinatly did'nt tell you the shower block wouldn't be looked after or cleaned, we have a field for campers, and most of my guests are happy with that, and happy with the facilities that I have, I don't think you would have left if I hadn't refunded you in full, but you obviously pulled at my heart strings when you came into my office all teary eyed and with a quivering bottom lip. I'm so glad your holiday ended up a great success, I can take it then that you won't be booikg with us again next Year? kind regards, Sharon.

The beach at Barry Island is a smashing sandy stretch that’s fab for families, with its sheltered shallow waters, numerous cafés and amusements to play with; it also welcomes dogs in certain areas. If you’re looking for something a little different, head half an hour along the coast to Southerndown for surf schools, or to Ogmore-by-Sea to ride horses along the sand.
Cardiff’s a cracking city to visit, too – on top of a generous range of shops, restaurants and the like, the Welsh capital is also home to all manner of leisure facilities including an ice rink, go-kart track and whitewater rafting centre. If you’re after something a bit more cultural there are always shows to take in at the Wales Millennium Centre, and visits to Cardiff Castle and the excellent (and free) indoor/outdoor exhibits at St Fagans National Museum of History.
More? There are three golf courses within a 10-minute drive, a designer outlet village half an hour away and a bunch more castles to saunter around (Fonmon Castle, five minutes away, is always good for a foray).
