Length: 7.2 mi • Est. 3 h 20 m
Walk to Southerndown by Dunraven Castle after walking the gentle cliff walk from the car park at Ogmore - taking the upper path on to the cliff top rather than doing the steeper scramble at the end of the beech/platform section.  Then head inland to St. Brides Major, past the rather interesting sideways facing terraced cottages and then up the hill past the 12th century church. Then onto the common across the golf course, before resting at The Pelican. A short walk back to the car park beside the Ogwr from there.Show more

As part of the Love2walk festival in Bridgend the Garw Valley 3 walk was simply excellent. Lovely bunch of folks on the walk ho were there as part of Bridgend's walking festival organised by 'reach'. Had a great guide / walk leader Karl how was marvellous and provided us with all the information and banter we needed to keep going. We saw among other things, Red Kite Peregrine Falcon, Buzzards as well as a host of other wildlife and flora/fauna. Note the walk was 30 mins less than billed as I forgot to stop the App at the end. The 5 hours also included a leisurely 25 minute lunch break!Show more

This is a great walk. Well signposted and takes you through so many different type of walking terrain. Once you get to Merthyr Mawr, walking is slow due to the deep sand in places. The middle / end of the wall is moderate to easy going e.g. Around Porthcawl. Overall a fascinating and at times exhilarating walk.Show more
