Vishwell farm

The site consists of 3 fields, separated by post and rail fencing. One of these fields is adjacent to the separate hard standing, making 4 in all. There are toilets and showers but they are a bit antiquated and could probably benefit from a refurb. Acess to Cardiff is easy, with a bus stop a couple of minutes walk away. The same road in the opposite direction leads to Barry Island or the coast road to places like Llantwit Major and St Ogmore, with its large dog friendly beach. The Wenvoe arms in the village is also dog friendly and does good food. When we arrived, given the different fields, we asked where to pitch and were told to go anywhere. We were also told that the site has planning permission for 15 vans. We've stayed on a mixed CL/commercial site before, but usually there's some separation between the two. On both of the Saturday nights we were there the 15 van limit was exceeded, and that's without factoring in the 2 caravans (both definately in use) tucked away behind the hedge. There is plenty of space at the site, so this wasn't an issue, but if you are looking to book what members would understand to be a CL I'd suggest that this isn't the place for you.

Ideal location for Cardiff

Very well maintained site. Good bus service to Cardiff and Barry with bus stop less than 10 mins walk away. Garden centre with pleasant cafe nearby as well. Peaceful with lovely views over countryside.

Nice site but unwelcoming

Having pre booked we arrived at the site to find no one was available to welcome us or site us. We hung around, rang the bell a number of times but no one appeared. There was no note for us to advise re pitching so eventually we found a pitch and set up. We didn’t see anyone other than fellow campers throughout our 3 night stay and paid by filling out an envelope in the ‘porch’ and posting through the letter box as still no answer to bell. In all our years of staying on such sites we have never not met the owners or caretakers. Having said that the site suited our needs. The bus stop 10 mins walk away runs every half hour to Cardiff. There is a Tesco extra 2 miles away. Toilets are clean if a bit run down. No loo paper or hand drying facilities. Shower looked grim and would cost 50p so used our own facilities.

Chilled

Easy access into the site. Mr Phillips was a pleasure to deal with. Toilet block is very basic but clean. 50p for showers is no problem (especially as this heatwave is encouraging water conservation). Proper recycling on site. Will definitely return
