Experience the great outdoors and explore the hundreds of miles of mountain bike and cycle tracks, footpaths and trails - providing more than enough adventure for a weekend.
If a coastal adventure is what your looking for then look no further! The Glamorgan Heritage Coast, which is also part of the 870 mile Wales Coast Path, is popular with water sports enthusiasts as well as families.
We also have our fair share of castles, museums, imposing stately homes and manors to explore.
Take a look at some of our great holiday ideas and inspiration below but please check the opening arrangements with the businesses before you visit.
We are delighted to welcome you back to Southern Wales and to help you visit safely. We want you to enjoy your time here, but we ask everyone who travels to and around Wales always to respect our local communities and beautiful countryside.
To make the most of your time here, please plan ahead and follow the advice and guidance on the changing COVID-19 situation from the Welsh Government.
Bryngarw Country Park
Bryngarw is one of the hidden gems of Wales as it has stunning gardens, river walks, adventure fun for the kids, meadows for picnics and more. The park also is dog friendly. The park opened in 1986 and to celebrate turning 30 we have produced this video which includes a poem written by staff and volunteers. If you haven't yet visited you can find Bryngarw park and house just north of the M4 motorway near Bridgend in South Wales.
For intermediate mountain bikers through to seasoned downhill pro's, Bike Park Wales will offer you an incredible biking experience unlike anything you have experienced in the UK before.
