The Vale of Glamorgan is really full of wonderful places to walk like this. Beautiful it it's simplicity, a real 'diamond in the rough' Come and visit soon, you'll be glad you did.

I have been here over many years, always having a good time. Plenty of places to picnic, really close to the sea, and great if you want to see the viaduct in operation. The mini golf course is fun and the children's play area is in good condition. Nice coffee and bacon roll in the cafe. I can't say much... More

We are weekly visitors, huge expanses of lawn to let the kids go wild on, woodland walks fantastic for the dog. Well kept and mostly litter free (when people can be bothered to use the bins). Only a short walk to a pebble beach, there's climbing frames ect; for the kids and a small golf course.

This is a great place to spend a day. Children can walk the trails through the woods and discover and play football, cricket or whatever they enjoy that needs space or they can just run around until they're worn out. Great picnic place and a cafe. Within a walk to a beach and children love watching the planes coming in... More

It's got it all. Sun occasionally! Beautiful woods with abundant grassland, then a pebbly beach overlooking the Knap and the Severn, a spectacular viaduct and airplanes taking off from Cardiff Wales Airport. Oh yes, forgot to mention the buzzards, butterflies, birds and other wildlife. Walk my dog here most mornings when its not too wet. Love it!
