Planning your event – event extras

Need help with planning your event? In this blog, we’ve put together some key info & links on event extras from local hotels and transport, to things to do locally to take the stress out of planning your event.

Getting to us

You’ll need to drive to get to our woodland site and we encourage car sharing where possible. We send detailed directions to our ‘top secret’ woodland location once you’ve made a booking; we’re located near to Laleston, Bridgend.

If you’re a larger group, we advise booking a minibus. The road is not suitable for large coaches, but there is a turning space nearby where we’ll meet you and our woodland is a short 10 minute, scenic walk past the farms.

Two local companies offering reasonable prices and who know our location are Peyton Travel and EasyWay.


South Wales is a beautiful area in which to extend your stay. And there’s plenty to choose from to suit your budget and preferences. There are many hostels, B&Bs and hotels to choose from in nearby Bridgend, Cardiff or Swansea. Or you can enjoy the authentic countryside experience in one of the many self-catering cottages or campsites.

Visit Wales is an excellent starting point to find accommodation. A couple of nearby hotels are the Heronston Hotel, the Great House, and the Coed-y-Mwstwr.

Things to do in the area

Whether you’re dropping children off to a party, or attending an event and want to carry on afterwards, there’s plenty to do in the local area.

There’s McArthurGlen for shopping and restaurants, Porthcawl for a walk on the beach and fish and chips, and Cobbles Kitchen and Deli for lunch near Ogmore.

For more information about things to do locally take a look at the Visit Bridgend, Experience Porthcawl and Visit Wales websites.


No party or celebration is complete without a cake. And there’s space in our site to keep it until you’re ready to cut it – if it lasts that long! Find out more about local baker Rachel’s homemade cakes at RB Cakes.
