 What an absolute gem of a site.

Fantastic little site, immaculate facilities, 20 mins walk to a beautiful coast line and lovely, friendly hosts.

What more could you ask for.

 Beautiful campsite, staff extremely helpful and welcoming, facilities spotless, loved loved loved the location,

Firepits were a big hit, dog friendly, really enjoyed sitting outside the bar/ cafe area in the evening with a glass of Prosecco 🥂,

Gorgeous weather, fabulous pub 2 minute walk away and only a 15-20 minute walk to the beach,

We will definitely return very soon,

We did book last minute so only had the option of booking with no electric hook up but this was not an issue for us as we are quite self reliant,

Plenty of toilet facilities as the field we were in had a further 3 x porta toilets,

We will return very soon.

Reviewer: Kwoolly 1 review from this member

 Absolutely superb site, the staff were amazing, sooo friendly, pitch was bit small for our studland but was ok,

Toilet showers good, would have liked a mop in there to clean up after shower, and no Elsa point but owners explained why

Thanks again

 Exactly what we wanted, great facilities and simple camping.

Busy pub as expected but picnic benches made eating easy for self catering.

Great position to walk to beaches

 Great campsite, very friendly and helpful staffs and owners. Very clean toilets and showers, bare in mind it's a coins system showers, 50p around 5 min.

Excellent system put in place regarding social distance during this covid business.

Fantastic walk to Monknash beach from camp take around 15min across a field, a little woodland and then the dune to the beach where social distance isn't an issue at all.

Hire a fire pit for BBQ and marshmallow and you'll have a memorable holidays.

Definitely recommend and go back.

 Another visit to Heritage Coast Campsite and yet again we were very impressed. We were welcomed as we arrived and shown to our pitch having had all the facilities shown to us.

There is plenty of room on the pitches ensuring that there is never a problem of crossed guy ropes or neighbours infringing on your space. The facilities are very clean and the showers were hot (50p required).

On site there is a bar/restaurant serving a good selection of beer and food (have the chicken curry if available, I really enjoyed it!).

Our visit is in the wake of the Covid 19 lockdown and we, my wife particularly, had concerns about measures taken to prevent the spread of the virus. We needn't have had any concerns. All staff wore masks and all surfaces were regularly wiped down with anti-bacterial spray. There is a one-way system around the outside of the bar (no public entry to the bar) and there are many anti-bac stations that are kept topped up. There is much more chance of catching the virus in a supermarket than there is on the Heritage Coast Campsite.

Reviewer: Coogee 6 reviews from this member

 This site was adequate. The beach nearby is lovely for exploring rock pools and within easy walking distance. There are plenty of sandy beaches in the area too. It is situated in a nice quiet spot yet within easy reach of larger towns and Cardiff. If you do not wish to take your car/transport into the city, the trains from Bridgend run very frequently, even on a Sunday, and has a good car park.

For further trips we would definitely recommend the 4 waterfall trail and the superb Big Pit. The countryside and beaches are all lovely.

We did not use the restaurant or bar so cannot comment on them personally but other campers enjoyed them.

We didn't feel this campsite was very spacious as advertised. The "large" pitches were not what we class as "large". With a 6 man tent and car there was no room for our gazebo (which I had paid for when booking).

With the campfire positioned you were right next to your neighbours, which felt intrusive and made us feel compelled to constantly quieten our children. The field was better, where there were no designated pitches, but this seemed to be for groups.

There was room to play on that field but as it was not within sight of the tent and we felt it would encroach on the people camping there, we felt we could not use it to play. So, we would suggest when booking asking for the field if you would like some more space.

The campfire was waiting for us when we got there and was a nice thing to have, however, we had good weather so I'm not sure how good it would be in the rain.

The toilet and shower facilities were not really adequate. There were 2 women's and 2 men's toilets. This meant at times there was quite a queue in the morning for the loos and basins. Using the 2 showers was the same, especially when families needed to use them together.

The 50p/5 minutes would have been OK had it not taken 3 mins to get the temperature off freezing or too hot. The shower curtains did not contain the water well and so the floor was constantly awash (despite the efforts of all the ladies swabbing it after use) and also meant clothes could get wet, especially longer length clothes like trousers (we were wiser after the first shower).

So, yes, the site was OK, thanks mainly to the lovely other campers and friendly dogs and location, and is functional.

 Just Perfect: very friendly staff, lovely site with plenty of space,

Quiet and well run but not officious,

Small restaurant and bar with everything you need,

Short walk to the beach with spectacular scenery and lovely local walks.

We'll be back!

 I cannot praise this campsite enough, the staff were lovely and welcoming and it didn't seem like anything was too much trouble for them. We arrived late but we had our pitch waiting for us.

We'd hired a campfire which was brought over to us. The campsite was really friendly, lots of families and happy dogs. The beach was amazing and not too far away.

All in all I highly recommend.

Reviewer: Evabels 1 review from this member

 We booked this fairly last minute as we wanted somewhere near a beach and not too far from home. The beach is beautiful and remote (not great for really little kids unless carried). Low tide there is lots of sand, rock pools and climbing. It was a gorgeous walk down through the fields and forest with streams to play in. The kids didn't miss or need a play area as the meadow was perfect for a ball or gymnastics show ;)

We had such a great time here and it was much smaller than anticipated which was perfect. Safe for the kids (if avoiding the conversation area). The fire pits were huge but the logs cut quite small in size so they burned a bit quicker compared to other sites we've hired them at.

The 'proper' coffee was just great as was the little communal area by the caf/reception. Great being open all day too.

Upon booking we didn't read anywhere that you had to pay for a shower (50p for 5 mins) so that was a little surprise (quite possibly missed by us). Camping for 2 is quite reasonable but as every little bit you add adds up it can work out quite pricey a night to have to pay for showers! If we could say anything it would be longer shower curtains please :)

The staff/owners were lovely and we will be back and would definitely recommend the site.
