About Heritage Coast Campsite
Suitable ForTent campers, campervans, families, well-behaved dogs – yes. Groups allowed at owners discretion, except for hen and stag parties.
NearbyPick up the Glamorgan Heritage Coast Path and head north to Southerndown and Dunraven Bay. It's popular with the surfers and just about everyone else come summertime, while Dr Who fans might recognise it as Bad Wolf Bay. Escape the crowds with a visit to the Heritage Coast Centre (01656 880157). The nearby Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes provided the backdrop to the epic Lawrence of Arabia and the village's charming thatched cottages still attract the film industry today. Chilled out Llantwit Major boasts a handful of cool little boutiques, and it's just half an hour from Cardiff. But for those wishing to indulge in some serious retail therapy, chi-chi Cowbridge – 'the Bond Street of South Wales' – awaits just 4.5 miles from the site.
Food & DrinkHeritage Coast Campsite plays host to the excellent Teddy’s Bar & Kitchen, a fully licensed eatery open from 8am–11pm, complete with log burner for chilly days and local artists work on display. In the morning, chow down to a home cooked breakfast, freshly brewed coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juices, with light meals and sandwiches also available throughout the day. Along with daytime essentials, Teddy’s bar also offers wide range of quality wines, beers, and ciders, of course, some delicious Fablas Welsh Ice Cream. Just 300 yards from the site you'll also find the excellent Plough & Harrow (01656 890209). With a fine selection of real ales (served from its charmingly tiny bar), decent pub grub, and live music on Saturday evenings, this timber-beamed old local is just the ticket if you fancy stretching your legs to somewhere off the campsite. The nearby Horseshoe Inn (01656 890568) in Marcross is another noted favourite for caskateers with local drops from the Gower, Kite and Tomos Watkins breweries. They also do takeaway fish and chips.
