If you like the countryside and the seaside, then this is the place for you. Porthkerry is a beautiful place to spend a few hours or more. There are walks to follow, plenty of green for the children to play on, old woodland to explore, a pebble beach and a pitch and putt golf course.

Nice little wood log cabin style café in main car park for refreshments. In winter when the... More

This is located near where I live and it's a great park! So much to do and see. Woods, woodland walks, pond dipping, a meadow, a children's park, toilets, a coffee shop even a beach!! What's more the parking is free and the viaduct is a wonder to stand under
