I am very sorry but 4 sheep does not constitute a pleasure park to me!! I even bought special wellies for this, they were crossed with trainers allowing for quicker chasing of slightly nervous sheep.

Barry Island is a beautiful place on the southern coat of Wales. The pleasure park is situated near the beach and is an ideal place to spend some fun time. The owners are trying to revive it and restore Barry to its former glory. Well...More

Big Dipper, Dodgems, Ghost Train - all the usual suspects, plus slot machines galore! Noisy, fun, candy-floss and chips atmosphere.

Like most seaside resorts, full of arcades, cafes and fish n chips places, but lovely views, clean,and well maintained public areas. Parking an issue, as popular place to visit, and one of the main car parks closed due to new housing estate being built.

I've never used the beach huts, but I would assume the use of BBQs is a bad idea as many passerby and kids! Why not ask the people you are hiring from? HFB
