Welcome to Penllergare Valley Woods

Penllergare Valley Woods is a secret and magical place, situated just minutes from Junction 47 of the M4 near Swansea in South West Wales. The Victorian estate was previously the home of John Dillwyn Llewelyn the renowned horticulturist, pioneering photographer and astronomer and consists of over a hundred hectares of mixed woodland, two lakes, seven miles of peaceful woodland walks and over five hundred years of Welsh history. The site is also known for its spectacular waterfall on the River Llan, which meanders through the estate.

Today the site is  managed by the Penllergare Trust who have spent the last twenty years restoring and conserving this unique, family orientated, visitor attraction. To support the restoration programme the Trust has established a community run coffee shop and car park.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
