We actually walked and drove In The area on consecutive days. Once to visit the castle and then the ranch. Forest has its own car parks, trails and sculptures to look out for so worth a visit if you like walking. Not suitable for buggies.

Nice walks around the mountain and to Castellano Coch. We went to the Three Bears Cave (which you should definitely not go in *wink*) and it was as exciting as Tongwynlais gets. Take a helmet.

Popped to Forest Fawr to walk the dogs & have a catch-up with family. Beautiful forest, stunning scenery & a great day all round. Lots of different routes to explore and met lots of new furry friends along the way! Highly recommend dog walks here....More
