Margam Country Park
This large country park includes the magnificent Margam Castle, an 18th Century Orangery with ornamental gardens and a Deer Park, all set within 1000 acres of beautiful countryside.
The park is excellent for cycling with miles of tarmac roads and rough tracks. A section of the National Cycle Network known as the Celtic Trail Route 4 runs through the northern end of the park. The only place that you are not allowed to cycle is the Orangery Gardens.
There is also a splendid, 5 mile mountain Bike Trail. It is waymarked with yellow markers and takes place on tracks, paths and rough ground. The Margam Activity Centre offers guided rides for families.
Margam is also great for walking with several different colour coded waymarked trails taking you to the different sections of the park.
To extend your walking in the area head towards Porthcawl where you will find the Kenfig Nature Reserve. The site includes expansive sand dunes and the Kenfig Pool, Glamorgan's largest lake.
