Thank you for booking with Camp Cardiff. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our campsite. Here is some important information about your stay and to help you travel to us.

 


 

Please bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you to be able to check in. This can be on your phone or printed out.

 


We are a temporary campsite so we do not have a permanent address. The best address to use for sat navs etc is:

Cardiff Riding School, Pontcanna Fields, Fields Park Rd, Cardiff CF5 2AX

 

ARRIVING BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT TO CARDIFF

If you arrive in Central Cardiff the easiest way to get to Camp Cardiff is walking. If you are arriving late at night consider getting a taxi.

 

Getting here by Taxi

Tell the taxi driver to go to “Pontcanna Changing Rooms” (by Cardiff Scout Hut) – Fields Park Rd, Cardiff CF11 9LB. Once you get there continue along the road to the security gates and show your booking confirmation, they will let you in and show the taxi where to go.

Approximate Prices:

  • From Cardiff Central Train Station: £6 – £8
  • From Cardiff Airport: £22 – £31

 

Getting here on Foot

From wherever you are in Cardiff go to Castle Street and cross over the temporary footbridge over the river. Turn right and walk up Cathedral Road for about 1km. You will see signs for the campsite and Camp Cardiff and turn right into Fields Park Road. Walk about 200m and you will see signs to lead you into Camp Cardiff. It is about 20 minutes in total.

 


 

ARRIVING BY CAR TO CAMP CARDIFF

 

If you are driving you can park in our on-site secure car park. It is secured by fencing and access is controlled by our security staff at all times.

**If you have Google Maps please put in “Cardiff Riding School” which will get you to the Camp Cardiff vehicle entrance.

 

DRIVING FROM THE EAST (VIA NEWPORT) 
To get to the Camp Cardiff car park from the East (via Newport), exit the M4 at EXIT 28, then follow the A48 for approximately 8 miles (13km). When you pass a large Tesco Extra, look for the Riding School sign about 400 metres after on the left. Turn into the Riding School, but proceed straight along the road. There will be a barrier. If this is closed, flash your lights and the security will come to let you in. You will need to show your Booking Reservation to be let through the gate.

 

Follow the yellow car park sign to the Camp Cardiff car park.

 

 

DRIVING FROM CARDIFF AIRPORT 
To get to the Camp Cardiff car park when driving from the Airport, follow road signs to the A48. Like above, you need to enter Camp Cardiff from the A48. The A48 is a dual carriageway, so you will need to pass Cardiff Metropolitan University on your left, then Tesco Extra on your right. Use the left 2 lanes to take the exit towards M4 W/City Centre/Canol y ddinas/A470 then turn right at the roundabout, 5th exit, to return to the A48 in the opposite direction to which you have just travelled. Turn left following directions for Cardiff Riding School about 400 metres after the large Tesco Extra, then continue along this road. There will be a barrier. If this is closed, flash your lights and the security will come to let you in. You will need to show your Booking Reservation to be let through the gate.

Follow the yellow car park sign to the Camp Cardiff car park.
