Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes

Wonderful peaceful walking place, home of the Big Dipper the Tallest sand dune in Europe .. Great place for dog walking, plenty of wildlife its nature at its best.
Warning though: it is a bit of a hike to get there (about a 30 minute walk from the car park) but it is well worth it once you arrive at the destination as you get rewarded with stretches of glorious coastline (wi...
Parc Slip Nature Reserve
#2 of 8 Nature & Parks in Bridgend
Primarily a wetland reserve Park Slip is ideal if you enjoy bird watching but equally offers some good walks too if you prefer and is also cyclist and dog ( on a lead ) friendly.
Each year I visit this nature reserve it gets better and more interesting, you quickly feel that you are further away from built up areas than you actually are and the relatively new high level hide for bird viewi...
Bryngarw Country Park
#3 of 8 Nature & Parks in Bridgend
This is one of our favourite places to walk our dogs, the grounds of the park are beautiful and great to explore and there is a path along the river and old railway track that is lovely as well.
Always enjoy the Park its so beautiful and safe for children - lots to take in, paddle in the small rivers or even take a dip if your brave enough - take a picnic and relax as the childlren run freely
Glamorgan Heritage Coastline

The special beach with a family connection so I was told by my father is Monknash Beach with it's picturesque walk through the Nature Reserve and old Mill.

This isGlamorgan's largest natural lake, and one of my childhood haunts, It is set on the edge of this beautiful sand dune nature reserve with spectacular views across Swansea Bay to the Gower.

Dunraven Bay Southerndown, UK 4.0 mi away
#1 of 2 Nature & Parks in Southerndown
£4 to park and that includes access to the walled gardens and castle ruins - well worth it and it's a lovely spot!
With there being limited public transport, the car is the only way of getting there and in the summer the car park will be full very quickly (£5 charge) Once there the area combines the beauty of the Glamorgan Her...

Parc Calon Lan
#7 of 8 Nature & Parks in Bridgend
The park itself is small with the stream and lake and small surrounding garden area, along with a free car park, but really it's just great because it's the start of the pathway up into the hills.
Lovely park with fantastic views .

It's easy to walk to from the free car park and is well signposted(I've obviously been walking around with my eyes closed to signs) it's free to enter,they do have a donations box and it's run by volunteers.
