WALKING

Walking in the Vale of Glamorgan combines a fascinating 60 km stretch of the Wales Coast Path with the picturesque, historic beauty of inland Vale. Along its rugged coastline walkers can discover the last manned lighthouse in Wales (automated as recently as 1998), a college unlike any other at St. Donats and 16th century walled gardens at Dunraven Bay, plus the seaside bustle of Barry and Penarth.

Closer to home, their are a number of diverse walks that showcase our historic market town and surrounding fields and wooded paths.

Please speak to reception if you would like some specific details and they will happily advise. Otherwise, there are some more details here –
