Coastal Camping In the Vale of Glamorgan

We are Creative Rural Communities; the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Rural Regeneration initiative. In short we run loads of great projects supporting creativity and enterprise in the rural Vale of Glamorgan.

The Coastal Camping project is something that we are currently loving! We get to help loads of great and enthusiastic landowners learn all about what’s involved in setting up a campsite, and then have a go running one this summer (2012.)

This blog is our way of documenting the project, and sharing it with you. (It also means we wont have to write a stuffy report at the end hopefully!) So if you’re looking for a great new campsite in a rural, coastal location then you should definitely watch this space, and if you fancy setting up a campsite of your own, I reckon you might pick up loads of great tips from this blog.


This project has received funding through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007 – 2013 which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The funding is administered by Creative Rural Communities, the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Rural Regeneration initiative.
