About Heritage Coast Campsite

Suitable For

Tent campers, campervans, families, well-behaved dogs – yes. Groups allowed at owners discretion, except for hen and stag parties.
Please note: motorhomes and caravans are not licensed at this site.


Pick 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 & Drink

Heritage 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.

A brilliant get away

Service at the campsite was brilliant along with large pitches and nice facilities. Being able to walk to the beach and along the coastal walks was very enjoyable, there was a range of pubs/restaurants within a 20 minute drive to choose from, with one very close by. Would definitely stay here again!

Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely review we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us, and it is nice to see that you made the most of our gorgeous coastline. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.

Well situated, good family campsite

The location just south west of Cardiff is great - convenient to get to off the M4 and plenty to do in the area. I’d recommend the local beach at Monknash, a 25-30 minute hike away, the beach and cliff walks at Dunraven Bay, the sand dunes at Ogmore, St Fagan’s museum and Dyffryn Gardens. The campsite itself is clean, with a tractor coming round to collect the rubbish from each pitch every morning. The cafe is pretty good and there is a licensed bar. Many campsites now are building eco showers and composting loos and this is something that would make Heritage Coast Camping better, as the showers are below average and the portaloos start to really smell after a while (our pitch was unfortunately adjacent to them!). I’d recommend camping in the field for more privacy and better views - it’s also better for children to play as there is more open space. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return in future.

Response from Heritage Coast Campsite

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, we are impressed by how much of our beautiful area you got to see, the sand dunes are always children's favourite place, always makes me smile when they tales tales from their trip to the dunes and the stepping stones to the castle ruin there.  We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay in the Brook paddock the views really are stunning when the weather is right. Thank you for the feedback and we have never heard of your suggestion about composting loos and it is something we are defiantly going to consider moving into next year. We do hope you come and stay with us again would be lovely to see you all again and we are so happy you enjoyed our little site.

A nice little campsite

The campsite is well maintained with good basic facilities. The on site cafe/bar is useful if limited and very restricted on basic essentials that can be purchased. Although Monknash bay is only a 15 min walk away it is an unsuitable walk for buggies, those with physical disabilities or very young children due to the stiles and uneven terrain. For older kids and adults it’s a pretty walk leading to a rocky bay (with sand at low tide) and plenty of opportunities for older kids to climb and explore. The local Plough and Harrow served lovely food from 5.30pm. A pretty good campsite.

We thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are glad you enjoyed our site and we hope to see you again, it is lovely to see people making full use of the Plough and Harrow as you can't beat a relaxing drink in a pub after a days exploring along the coast. 

Friendly staff, great facilities

This little campsite is quiet and peaceful, not far from the coast. The staff there are friendly and helpful, and they have well kept facilities such as hot showers, toilets and fresh water
