 We loved the convenience of its location, just in rear of an isolated pub on the corner of the coastal road.

The facilities were excellent, a group of portaloos and outbuildings with hot showers and clean toilets ☺️

The site is so near the coast that one night a sea fog rolled in and blanketed us in an eerie mist so we could barely see the old pub! The camping field is small and quite lumpy buy we managed to find a flat spot and a spare picnic table.

I'd say it could accommodate about 20 units and be ideal for a camping club or group to hold a little weekend subject to prior arrangement 😊

The pub serves food on most evenings and decent real ales and is complying with the many covid rules.

So handy for exploring Ogmore and Southerndown coastal walks

 Nice little site with a pub. Campervan area slightly uneven (. To put chairs, tables on ) room for only maybe 6 campers.

Toilet and shower facilities basic as the are in portable buildings but adequate. Pub is nice, staff and locals very friendly, food really good, beer not bad either.

A short walk to the cliffs and beach. Stunning walk along the cliff tops. Didn't want to leave.

 Just stayed in one of their ready built bell tents, it was amazing came fully floored with mats & rugs. There was six of us sleeping and it was really spacious and warm.

We had a brilliant weekend, what a fab location and well kept site, views of the sea, close to the beach and amazing cliff top walks. We also rented a Gazebo & Chinenea off them and so we sat around the fire outside in the evening. The pub is great with lovely staff who where super helpful and sorted the chimenea for us and helped us with the gazebo.

The pub serves really nice food and the booze was good too.

Plenty of toilets and showers, which where spotlessly clean and and showers with plenty of hot water.

Will definitely do this again and although we thought it was a bit pricey at 120 per night it was well worth it, we had a cracking space at less than 20 quid each. We where offers a discounted price for the second night but had to leave and go back home. Next time two nights for definite.

 Good points:

- We had a great weekend!

- The staff at the pub could not be more friendly and helpful. They were organised and had proper forms to fill in etc.

- The pub has a great selection of ales and although we didn't eat there on this occasion, the food looked great and the customers all looked happy.

- Location Location Location. Beautiful place and area, views of the sea, close to the beach and some great walks.

- Campsite Toilets spotlessly clean and plenty of hot water. Also really good hand driers.

- Campsite is undulating but not excessively so.

Slight concerns (so not major issues but worth mentioning)

- Showers are in festival styles 'Tardis' cubicles. There is plenty of hot water and you don't have to pay (very good!). However, they are very small, there are only 6 in total and there was no room to hang your towel or clothes. Also, the water didn't drain properly in the 2 cubicles We used during the weekend.

- The bathroom fixings are a bit shaky (push fit and a bit wobbly). They worked fine but I'd be a bit concerned over a really busy period.

- The washing up facilities were grubby and cobwebby when we arrived. Probably just start of season stuff but.

- There is no hookup or chemical toilet disposal.

- The base charge for Mon to Thurs is 15 per night. We felt this was fair. It's 20 per night at weekends. In view of the comments above and comparing it with other similar sites, we thought this was a little over optimistic.

All in all, a good campsite with adequate facilities next to a cracking pub run by lovely people but the 20 price tag is a bit much until they have improved the facilities. In all fairness, I understand from browsing the Web that they intend to do this over time.

 Surprised there are hardly any reviews for this. My first trip in my new campervan, found this place and it was lovely. The field behind the pub slopes gently down towards the coast (excellent view of the sea) but not too much of a slope.

Waking up at sunrise and seeingthe misty field next door with silhouettes of a foal was quite special :)

FACILITIES - portacabin toilet block was fairly clean and adequate, nothing special. Didn't try the showers.

Pub was lovely - a fe sofas in the lounge, didn't get stared at for not being local. The restaurant had a good atmosphere. The steak was ok but I'd probably choose something different the next time as nothing too special. Service was excellent though, as was the beer.

 Really pleased to stay here, its not far from where we live and we know the pub well, but it was our first trip camping so we wanted to stay close to home and also try out the facilities that we know have been upgraded this year.

We know the owners very well, and they are lovely people who will do anything to help anyone - indeed as we have a jumbo tent we were putting up for the first time, the Landlord actually pitched in to help us (and resisted the temptation to tease our pitiful attempts)!

The showers and toilets were plentiful, very well kept (well, they are brand new!) and the washing up sink was large (rather than the tiny sink we've seen at some sites). The site offers a low-impact, eco friendly design and the new toilet block is surrounded by wooden panelling and blends in effortlessly with the surrounding scenery.

And - did we mention the scenery? This is a very pretty campsite in a lovely location with sea views across the Bristol channel. Sunsets are very special on this coastline and it is quite a privilege to be able to watch one, the region has its own microclimate and is quite often a little bit warmer and drier than the temperatures we get a few miles up the road.

We can't sing the praises of the pub on site enough, we are frequent visitors and love it so much we got married there last year. To now be able to stay on site just makes it even better, even though we only live 10 mins away!

The food here is genuinely home cooked, everything from a baguette right up to a gourmet special such as pan roasted duck with home made port sauce is cooked completely fresh to order (so no nasty ready meals served instantly when you order but well worth the short wait!).

Food is reasonably priced with home made paninis starting at just 3. 95 on the bar menu, right up to special meals on the restaurant menu. The pub also does what I'm told is a fabulous breakfast, but I've yet to try it! I do however normally partake of the bar Menu's home made soup (3. 95) or the chicken burger with chips (5. 95).

Opposite the pub is a reknowned italian restaurant called Francos, we haven't yet tried it (cos we eat at the Cups so much!) but I've eaten at the owner/chef's former premises and the food there was absolutely fabulous. Walking past Franco's today I noticed his prices were also very reasonable from about 10 a meal (very good for that style of food).

The well-known Southerndown beach and its breathtaking views are a short 10 mins walk away, (1 min drive) or Ogmore beach and Ogmore river in the other direction takes about 30 mins (or a very quick 5 minute drive).

You can also find the pretty ruins of Ogmore Castle a 10 min drive away - and they are small but free to visit - be careful about parking down by there though, as the river can sometimes flood the castle car park.

If you want to eat further afield, (and frankly you probably won't want to!) this stretch of the Heritage Coast is unspoiled and the restaurants and pubs offer good food, great views and good quality, the coastal path is a relatively unknown 'local secret'.

Hilary and Iains restaurant is 5 mins away in Ogmore by Sea, again with sea views and you also have the Pelican Inn (though prices are much higher here) and the Watermill pub with river views further along the coastal path. Follow the road to the end and you will come across a charming independent garden centre.

For those who prefer a 'louder' style of coastline, Porthcawl is about 20 mins drive and Barry Island (of 'Gavin and Stacey' fame!) is about 35 mins away.

Our first night 'away'in our tent was perhaps cheating as we view the Three Golden Cups as our second home, and its 10 mins away from our first home! However being only a field away from our second home, in the quietness of the field, staying with friends and their young children enjoying the freedom of a safe, pleasant site felt like a proper mini holiday and something we will definitely do again, with the added advantage of both of us being able to have a drink without worrying about driving home!
