Must visit
Aug 2021 • Family
Such a lovely place and amazing it's so close to the crazy seaside resort of Barry island. You've acres of woodland and trails in the wood, a play area for little ones and a beach. Plus, a tea room and toilets, parking was cheap for the day. Lovely views and disused viaduct. Take a kite, football, frisbee, lots of open space to run and play. Such a nice day. Kids will love jumping streams, climbing trees etc. Real gem and well looked after by park rangers too.

We love it here!!
Aug 2021 • Family
We come here very often. We usually go for a long walk in the woods, walk along the beach, dip our feet in the sea, walk back, have a picnic and an ice cream then explore some more. It is never ending fun for all of the family. We also love how dog-friendly it is as well with dog bowls and ice cream suitable for dogs everywhere

Gorgeous county park
May 2021 • Friends
Visited Porthkerry last weekend on a sunny and hot day. Not been before and had wanted to go for ages. It is such a lovely place. Nice cobbly beach, woodlands, plenty of green space and some nice walks. Lovely park for the kids, a cafe and some public toilets (that were pretty clean and tidy). It was busy but we managed to find a spot to park (£2.50 cash only to park). Lots of families set up camp for the day with tents, bbqs, picnics etc. Really lovely place to chill or have a nice walk. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Lovely day out
Apr 2021 • Family
We had a fantastic day at Porthkerry Country Park. Within the park there are ponds and streams, woodland walks, an amazing children's play area, a pebble beach, a cafe and open fields. There is fantastic scenery, trees and wildlife, and the park is a great location for a picnic. This is a great day out, especially as the park is so peaceful, clean and well maintained

Awesome park
Oct 2020
What an amazing park, that seemed to have everything: wood sculptures, an amazing variety of stunning trees, a viaduct, that you can walk up to and see trains travelling along, a beautiful cafe that seemed very popular, flat mown areas for walking, woods, streams and a boardwalk down to a pebble beach. We stood looking at the viaduct and noticed acorns dropping onto our heads. A ranger walked by and informed us that the acorns were being thrown at us by a group of territorial squirrels! She stated that if we watched for long enough we would see the squirrels throwing acorns at us from the 2 huge majestic oak trees. We only saw one of the squirrel, which we named "Asbo". We also named the other elusive two " Delinquent" & "Thug"
Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Lovely park and gem of a cafe
Oct 2020
Great walks in this lovely setting, with disabled access to the sea. Historic viaduct worth a look also. And having worked up an appetite visit the gem of a cafe for hot food and coffee and cakes, it’s a must

A great day out for families
Aug 2020 • Family
A really lovely country park. Well worth a visit. Fab views, lots of space, Robins Walk is a lovely flat walk. Great family spaces. A pebble beach. A lovely kids playground, a nice little cafe (takeaway through hole in wall due to Covid), toilets and FREE parking! A great day out with family of all ages.
