In addition to our facilities, anything you need during your stay can be found in the local area.
A short drive from the campsite – or by bus – the local community includes two historic towns, Llantwit Major and Cowbridge. Llantwit Major – with the famous St Illtyd’s Church – has supermarkets, train station, chemists, doctors and vets. Also several coffee shops, pubs, and cafés. Cowbridge has excellent shopping (known as The Bond Street of South Wales) including boutiques, gift shops, supermarkets, chemists, doctors and vets. Also a variety of cafés, restaurants, and pubs.
Easy transport to Cardiff by bus or train is available from Llantwit Major or Bridgend. Trains run every hour Monday to Saturday, and every two hours on Sunday. Petrol Stations are located at Bridgend and on the A48 to Cowbridge.
The beautiful city of Cardiff and its Principality Stadium (formerly called the Millennium Stadium) is approximately 23 Miles from Heritage Coast Campsite. The city has a wonderful shopping – including national chains, and a great variety of independent retailers offering something a bit different. There are plenty of sports to watch, including rugby, football, cricket, and ice hockey. Also a wide variety of opportunities to take part – with facilities including climbing centres, the new ice rink, swimming pools, and the International White Water Centre, to name but a few. Culturally, Cardiff offers the famous castle, several museums – including Techniquest, the Millennium Centre, St David’s Hall, and The Doctor Who Experience.
There are a variety of ways to get around the city. Most of the attractions and shopping are within walking distance of the station, but there are also tourist buses, boat services, and cycle hire available.
In addition, the acclaimed Cardiff Bay development offers parking and a great selection of restaurants, bars and boat trips – why not take a gentle cruise around the bay, or if speed is more your style, a powerboat blast to blow away the cobwebs… During the year, the Extreme Sailing series visits the bay, and there are a host of other events held there each year. In March 2016, the IAAF world half marathon is also coming to Cardiff.
