About this walk

Bryngarw House and County Park is a lovely resource not far from Bridgend. It has paid parking on site (i think the cost is seasonal) and there is a cafe and there are toilets right by the parking area. Obviously there is the house as well and I've included a link for that if people are interested in it.

This walk is not that long - about 1.8-2 miles long and essentially follows a section of river. It is very flat - half of it is cycle path that has been built next to a disused railway line. It is OK to let the dogs off on this section but obviously, in the good weather, expect cyclists. It can be argued this section isn't too exciting - on one side are fields and on the other there is a high bank that shields you from a road. The other half of the route goes into the House grounds itself (it can be muddy as you cross the fields that proceed the house) and there are eventually signs that you need to keep the dogs on a lead. Whilst I do this as I near the house, there are lovely areas where they can get down to the river and paddle and play so I let them off for that. You can get a taster of the lovely grounds at this point - there are ornamental gardens, Japanese bridges, ponds for example and the house itself.

Like I say, this is a short easy route and you will notice loads of paths and walks that diverge from it - Bryngarw House and Park has a lot of routes to walk so expect plenty of postings from me!

    Walked here over the Easter break. Beautiful trails through wetlands and the Oriental gardens are a must. Also walked part of the Bryngarw circular trail. Still a lot of the grounds we didn't see, such as the path beside the river Garw. Some paths are more difficult than others but majority are quite gentle.
