When you stay with us at Fontygary we only provide the very best caravans at fabulous prices. Both caravans that we have can hold up to 6 people at a time and as they all lie within 30 seconds of each other, large groups can come and stay with us knowing that everyone isn’t far away. Each home has a decked veranda with seating and dining areas enabling you to enjoy the view even whilst you eat!

Touring park. Most pitches are sloping so some levelling to be done. Quite close together so a bit difficult to maintain safety distances. Electric, water and waste on the pitches. Very nice club room area with a large patio with great views over the Bristol Channel and a stone beach below.. Lovely walks along the coast path and easy walking to the train station and bus stops. Frequent transport to Cardiff, Barry and Bridgend. Really good chip shop in the entrance area. Got a bit packed at the weekend but that is to be expected. Two or three restaurants on the site as well as a pool and fitness building. Would definitely stay again but would want a larger and more level pitch than we had.

We booked into a "superpitch" with our moho for a couple of nights, as we were looking to stay reasonably close to Barry. The site looked OK and "superpitch" reassured us that for the money it would be OK. The good bits: The site is reasonably close to Barry. It also has easy access to walking along the coast path directly from the site. There is a reasonably good pub over the road, a fish & chip shop on the site boundary and a small shingle beach directly accessible from the site. We did not use the facilities but did eat lunch in the restaurant. We noticed the meagre and dirty toilet and shower facilities but it was quiet and we had on board facilities we could use. We arrived on Thursday in September, all was well.... The other bits: Friday, now this is a differnt matter. Thursday the site was quiet, pitches were very very close together but not very busy. Friday afternoon suddenly there was a huge influx of tourers, caravans and everything inbetween, relentless arrivals which went on far into the night. Each one came with a large contingent of free range children and dogs. The pitches were so close together that once chairs tables and endless alcohol were unloaded you literally could not walk inbetween. You could also hear the conversations in the vans now positioned each side, the pitches were that close. It was obvious many groups knew each other well, so perhaps it was just the fact that it was impossible to walk between vans that they insisted on shouting loudly to each other across rows. The arrivals went on and on, engines revving, shouting and swearing. The only respite was that most people made their way to bar Friday evening (leaving the free range children to roam free range). However on return at 11 pm many groups continued to party outside, drinking, shouting and swearing until the small hours. It was at about 1 am Saturday morning we gave up on sleep and decided to escape at 7 am that morning. Noticing the state of the loos at that time (doors open, nappies on the floor, loo roll everywhere) we knew we had made the right decision. Like other reviewers have noted, we are convinced that having pitches so close together you can touch the van next door could even be a fire hazard. We also note from other reviewers here and elsewhere that this weekend influx is a regular occurence. In summary, if you are in a large group, like partying and want somewhere to stay , dont mind shouting and swearing until the early hours, dont mind kids under your van or treading in dog poo as you step out, are interested in the voyeurist aspect of being so close to the vans each side that you can hear every word, then this is probably the site for you. If you are looking for a site in this location consider perhaps a mid week stay when the children are back to school.

Been here for a week in our motorhome. Booked early so got a good pitch. All sounded great first few days were good. Nothing organised during the week for the kids entertainment wise. First day chefs wanted a day off so kitchen was closed. Friday of bank holiday chefs were off sick so kitchen was closed. Loads of tpurers came on the friday night never been anywhere where vans have been on top of each other. I could pass a coffee out our window to the next campers. I thought there was a legal requirement for a fire break. Also this site is open to any public to use no security so bank holiday Saturday everybody from wherever was using bar resturant it was.mental. we went for a couple of hours left about 7 and people were queing to get in. Not what it said on the website unfortunately One more thing. There's a pub opposite and a wild campsite both with no facilities but they were all using the site shower block and as there are onlyv3 showers it was a bit blocked. Sorry rant over

Luckily when I booked to stay here I chose, on the map, what looked like the biggest pitch - No. 1 - it was HUGE! But felt sorry for all the others - cramped. Lovely site, right next to the beach, pub and shop. I LOVE the shower/toilet setup.
