This is an outstanding area with sand dunes and a historic village that makes you feel as if you are going back in time, very pretty and picturesque, a gem hidden away!

“A must with kids”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

Well worth a visit, kids love to ride down the dunes on sledges, summer and winter. Good walk for adults. Pretty thatched cottages village close by.

“Amazing setting”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

Supposedly the largest range of sand dunes in Europe! Park at Merthyr mawr and walk towards the sea-a really good work-out! The views are amazing; the taller sand dunes are hard work, so good if you fancy getting fit.
