Lots of nature, green and beautiful waterfall. All this for only 20 pence car park for an hour! Cheap cakes and coffee too!

What a lovely place to walk and explore, we take dogs for a walk and they can have a good run, also the grandchildren run and explore nature, you can walk as far or as little as you feel up to.

I had a real shock when I visited yesterday, I was so impressed I went back today. I visited with my two young kids and my mother cos my wife was working, I was very impressed. There is a real nice waterfall and lake. There are about 7 miles of walks so you can spend the whole day here. Some... More

Better advertising is definitely needed for this beautiful park. I was surprised by how large an area it is, perfect for dog walking as we were doing, and many other visitors that were there last Sunday. I do think dog bins are needed around the park, but understand there isn't the funding for it at the moment. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Had a lovely long walk with my husband and our dog. Didn't know this place existed. Why isn't it better advertised so that everyone can go there and enjoy it? The entrance on the main road is very untidy though, by the layby, masses of litter. Hope the car parking fee goes towards the restoration project. Had quite an adventure,... More

We took the baby and the dog and it was a great day out! The dog loved bounding around the woods and it felt like quite an adventure! Plenty of routes to chose from depending on how challenging you want your journey to be. Not suitable for prams- would be very difficult even following the main paths. Easy with a... More

Just off the motorway, this is an oasis of trees and water. Long term project to bring this historic site to be a major asset to Swansea and South Wales. Dont miss the coffee and cakes to help recover from all that fresh air.
