Had a walk around this beautiful parkland in the October sunshine and was mesmerised! At every turn there was beautiful trees, lakes, majestic firs and great oaks. The house itself, mostly deserted after the fire in 1977, was eerily intriguing with its stone mullions and...More

We regularly visit Mariam and the children absolutely love coming. Wonderful help staff and well maintained grounds. We’ve attended special events over the years and it’s always been a great experience and disabled friendly.

Yes you can, you can walk along the road into Margam Parc, just be aware of the traffic :) then you don’t pay as you only pay if you park a car in their car park :)
