Family day out
Aug 2020 • Family
Pros: lots of free parking, adventure playground is hugely entertaining, amazing grounds, well cared for animals, lots of area to explore thus adhering to social distancing, fairly decent activities

Cons; no healthy and safety on the outdoor activities. My family and I had a nasty accident on the go kart rides as we had not been briefed on brake safety and routes to take. The young man on the stall was very casual about our experience and almost seemed to laugh at the accident. Prices are also on the higher side.

Great for all ages
Aug 2020
Margam park is a great day out for the whole family. There is a duck pond, play grounds for young children and 'Go ape' for teenagers and adventurous adults. There are plenty of areas to have a picnic as well as lovely walks and a cafe for snacks. Would definitely recommend.

Iddylic country space
Sep 2020 • Couples
What a beautiful place, iddylic grounds with plenty of space and brilliant social distancing. So much to do there, gorgeous walks through farmyard animals and wildlife. Also beautiful lakes with ducks and geese. My partner and I where also happy to find that the gower brewery is currently on site with there real ale bus, got to have been one of the prettiest places I have sat and drank a beer. Will definitely return if ever In the area again.

Day out.
Aug 2020 • Family
What a great place. Make sure you have your walking shoes on. You could go here every week and still see new things each day. Great trees to climb, great park. The house is spectacular you really get a feel for the history of the place as you look up those steps

Despite increase in car parking still a good day out
Aug 2020 • Family
We often visit Margam Park and have in the past bought annual car park passes. They are increased to £40 a year or £6.50 all day no half day option.

There are 2 playareas and lovely grounds to walk around. A train which isn't operational at present and a small farm to visit animals. You can hire go kart type vehicles and there is a small cafe and an ice cream kiosk.

Good family cycling but the wasps ruined our lunch
Aug 2020 • Family
We came here on an overcast weekday in August with our two boys aged 6 and 8. We arrived at about 10.30am and there was still lots of parking available on the fields and enough room for us to park with our bike rack tow bar on the back of the car. We then had a small queue to pay to get in - £6.50 per car. There were some family cycle routes which we followed. They did involve some climbs just to get to the beginning of the routes. There was a brilliant adventure playground which looked brand new which our boys enjoyed. On our cycle route there were various go karts of differing sizes we went past. We went round the family route and then went round the moderate route which did have some steep climbs which our 6 year old on a bike without gears couldn’t manage and he had to push his bike up those hills. On the way back we ended up on some sort of mountain bike trail, the sort you might see on a mountain bike competition. It wasn’t my cup of tea but my husband enjoyed it. We also saw some deer on our cycle route.

We had lunch at the cafe - there was a queuing system for ordering and then a separate place to collect. We went at lunchtime and waited about 10 mins but an hour later there was no queue at all. We ate our meal at the picnic benches nearby but the wasps pretty much ruined our meal. They were very persistent. The turkey sandwiches were a bit tasteless but we were just glad the cafe was open. The toilets were also open, with social distancing in place. We didn’t come across any queues but there was a sign saying the toilets would close for cleaning between 1.30pm and 2pm so might cause some inconvenience (no pun intended).

We locked our bikes up near the cafe and walked down towards the orangery. It was really nice but we didn’t do a lot of walking as we’d already done a lot of cycling.

Space and beauty
Aug 2020 • Family
What a lovely place! We went with our extended family, a picnic, cricket bat, tennis rackets and balls.
Plenty of space for eating and drinking with numerous tables, a little outlet selling ice cream and picnic fare, toilet facilities and the buildings and ruins themselves.
The walk around the deer park is peaceful and provides lots of space for children to run around and play.
The castle and orangery look interesting (we were disappointed they are currently closed - coronavirus), however it was interesting to walk round the abbey ruins.
We spent around 3 hours there, but if the children’s playgrounds and other attractions had been open it would certainly be a good day out. It’s currently free to visit because parts are closed, but even when fully open the only cost is the £4 car parking fee.
Will definitely revisit
