Simple camping (with glamping options) just a stroll from the nearest Glamorgan beach – plus a brilliant little café to boot

So you know about Snowdonia, the Gower and the Beacons, and the Pembrokeshire Coast needs little introduction. But how about the Glamorgan Heritage Coast Path? Starting from Cardiff Bay's regenerated waterfront and spanning 35 miles westwards to the seaside kitsch of Porthcawl, this stretch of Wales' recently opened national trail takes in some of the country's most spectacular scenery. The sweeping golden beaches of Whitmore Bay, the famous sand dunes of Merthyr Mawr, the innumerable charming clifftop villages – it's a wonder the area isn't positively overrun with holidaymakers year round. But hey, we're not complaining, and lucky for us we've found the perfect coastal campsite base to explore this magnificent region.

Glyn and Philippa George know a thing or two about hospitality. Having run their successful five-star B&B to much acclaim, the Georges decided to share their stunning corner of Monknash with the canvas contingent. Opening up the adjoining brook-side paddock for a trial 28 days a couple of years back, the response was so overwhelming that the ever-generous (as you'll soon discover) Glyn and Philippa realised it would be a shame to keep it to themselves. And so Heritage Coast Campsite was born.

This tents-only spot had space for just 30 privileged pitches spread across two paddocks on soft, level grass. With uninterrupted views of undulating Glamorgan hills and the sparkling Bristol Channel, you can almost hear the "oo ar"s from Devon on a clear day. Facilities are second to none, with a brand new stables block housing all the expected, immaculately clean ablutions and a fully licensed café – Teddy's Bar & Kitchen – that serves all the grub you need, from your morning cuppa and bagel right through to a sunset beer from one of Glamorgan's local breweries. The resulting campsite is a thoroughly chilled out, family-friendly site (not one for the stag or hen do!), with views to savour, a brook to meditate beside and, of course, that breathtaking coastal path to pick up. Pretty much ticks all the boxes then, eh?

The campsite owner says

Glyn and Philippa George offer you a warm welcome to  Heritage Coast Campsite. Our site enjoys wonderful uninterrupted views of the Heritage Coast and we are just 15 minutes' walk to beautiful Monknash Beach. Facilities are clean and well maintained and, in 2015, Teddy's Bar and Kitchen was added to the site. We are particularly suitable for families and couples. Brook Paddock adjoins the campsite and is reserved for the exclusive use of visitors; a BBQ and Picnic area overlooking the pretty brook, 4 acres of secure paddock makes a happy environment for children to play ( when accompanied by an adult ) and enjoy.
