These wild and magical woods – currently under restoration – are free to visit and are open 24/7 for you to share in the experience and enjoy.

We work hard to find alternative means of generating income to keep Penllergare Valley Woods free and open for everyone. We always welcome your donations but more importantly if you love Valley Woods and would like to support us, did you know that you can join our Friends of Penllergare membership scheme from £15 per year?
