Lush countryside camping park deep in the Vale of Glamorgan

Set deep in the Vale of Glamorgan, Happy Jakes Touring Park is a peaceful, family-friendly Welsh countryside camping park just a few miles from the Blue Flag beaches, cliffs and coves of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast.
The family-run camping park offers a variety of activities for the whole family from hiking, biking and exploring the local castles. The park is also just 15 miles from the capital of Cardiff for interesting days and exciting nights.

The well-maintained camping park offers pitches are for tents, trailer tents, motorhomes and tourers. Tents pitches are based in the level centre of the park on spacious open pitches, while roomy grass pitches with optional electric hook-ups are based around the site edges.
The spick-and-span heated shower block offers flushing toilets, free hot showers and disabled wet rooms. There’s also a launderette, washing up area with hot water, tourist information room, and a dedicated dog walking/play area for dedicated dogs.
Pick up all sorts of fresh Welsh produce at the local farmers’ markets, farm shops and fruit farms in the area. But if you want a break from cooking, Happy Jakes is three miles from ancient market town Cowbridge, which is home to several pubs and restaurants.

Open from 01/04 to 31/10
