Our Welsh Caravan and Camping: Camping field

General

  • Quiet site in the Bridgend countryside, 18 miles from Cardiff
  • On a working sheep farm close to the Celtic Trail
  • Barbecues, toilets, hot showers and family/disabled room

Have a stay here and you'll surely want to make this place Your Welsh… Our Welsh Caravan and Camping is a peaceful site with high-quality facilities, set in the south Wales valleys near Bridgend, on a working sheep farm surrounded by outstanding scenery.

This is a top spot for outdoor adventuring, with easy access to many mountain bike trails as well as the mighty Celtic Trail made up of 377 miles of bike paths around south, west and mid Wales; the nearest stretch is just 300 metres from the site.

Hikers have mountain trails nearby over Mynydd Y Gaer or across the Ogmore Vale mountains to tackle, or you could set off on the Taff Ely Ridgeway walk a mile and a half away in Glynogwr. Less actively, Our Welsh is about 20 minutes' drive from Bridgend for shopping and sightseeing, about 45 minutes from Cardiff, and half an hour from the beach at Southerndown.

The site is level, at the river's edge on Hendre Ifan Goch Farm. Facilities include toilets, hot showers and a family/disabled room with shower and toilet facilities; there are local produce sales, and barbecues are allowed.

Our Welsh is a quiet site, with no noise allowed after 10.30pm.

    Friendly staff, clean pleasant site, nice people, water taps on electric points, reasonable showers. Some open space.

    Disliked: 

    Perhaps better signage for location of walks from the site. Hard standing needs weeding a bit.

From the manager...

Thank You.
We are trying to get walk maps for the area, we are unable to print the OS maps due to copyright and our council will not provide maps or signage, we have to have planning for any signage and this would incur a big cost.

    The site is flat, spacious, facilities were kept very clean, the site is quiet eventhough lots of families with children were holidaying at this time. The owner is extremely friendly and informative, we took her advice and had a lovely walk along the cycle path to the village pub which served very nice food. Coast not too far away. All in all a very relaxing break.

    A really lovely welcome with recommendations about where to pitch, then helped me move tent to a better pitch. We pitched near the river very close to the waterfall, very tranquil. A small site with clean facilties and owner goes out of her way to help. As a single mum with a 12 year old this was really reassuring and made me feel safe. Good base location to explore the beaches, castles and scenery, definitely recommend and return x

I am sorry you were disappointed, we do clean the mens toilets regularly, unfortunately some do not flush the toilets. We are unable to clean between each use. We ask children are supervised but this doesn't always happen.
