We often go for a walk around the Gnoll country park grounds. There are superb views over the Neath valley and Swansea Bay and miles of walking possibilities. There is a lot of history behind the grounds and the now demolished house. There are sections of old mature woodland and play areas for the kids. At the moment they have... More

A great place to walk, uphill, downhill or straight. Many ponds, open fields and trees. Especially picturesque in Autumn.

I grew up not far from here, so walks in the Gnoll were a regular thing. Whether it's spring, summer, autumn or winter, this is a truly amazing place to visit. There is also a surprising amount of history here if you are willing to look for it :)

The Gnoll park is easily accessible from Neath town centre approx 10 mins walk. Anytime of year the park opens itself up to various walks,taking in the old house ruins and cellars, the cascades and 4 large ponds where you can either fish or take in the local wildlife. After all the walking you can relax in the cafe located... More

I have watched Gnoll Park evolve over many years and it just keeps getting better! The carefully maintained grounds vary from green mowed landscape to wild walks and habitats. Children love the two playgrounds, one aimed at toddlers and the other an enclosed adventure park that suits most ages. The Estate is a dog walker's paradise of flat clean paths... More

parking not a problem. plenty of activities for the kids and lovely walking areas,picnic areas in fact great day out for everyone. a real little treasure. and if you were visiting Aberavon beach it would be a 15/20 minute drive to do the complete opposite of a beach day.

Plenty of parking, (not free) plenty of natural walks, plenty of room for children to run around, ride bikes and use the play areas on a dry day. There's a little coffee shop which sells hot & cold snacks and picnic areas. Great value for money.
