Vale Trails Walk-One-logoWonderful natural views such as the Merthyr Mawr sand dunes, Dunraven Bay, Ogmore Castle, St. Bridget’s Church  and the walled gardens and ruins of Dunraven Castle.

Cliffs, Dunes and Common Walk: 8 miles / St. Brides Taster Walk: 4 miles

The walk takes you along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, designated for its unique  geology and wildlife.

The area is popular with walkers of all abilities. Some tackle the full 8 mile walk, but there are also shorter options (including a buggy and wheelchair accessible route) from Dunraven Bay which has the added bonus of the historic walled gardens and one of the best views along the entire Heritage Coast.

Am I dog friendly?
