About this walk

This is a fab place to go both with and without dogs. There are completely fenced off areas where there's no chance of escape but also woodland walks and a huge lake for the dogs to swim in.

There's toilets and a fab café for refreshments, a park, barbecue areas, plenty of picnic tables and even a medieval village that performs re-enactment.

A must visit if you're in South Wales or if you're just looking for a lovely day out.

    04/04/21 Easter Sunday. Had a really enjoyable time here. So much space and places for the dog to be off the lead. Will definitely be going back and definitely recommend for a walk with your dog.

    Massive area. The lakes are beautiful. Lots of places to let your dogs off the lead. Parking was only £1 for 2 hours on a Tuesday afternoon. Decent place to get your dogs more sociable.

    I've walked here a few times with a local sighthound group. It is a very peaceful walk through a variety of different environments such as paths, fields and woodland. There are plenty of opportunities to let your dog off lead and lots of different trails to explore. There are ducks and swans in the lakes, but they tend to favour one end of the lake so you can easily avoid them.
