A secret and magical place saved from neglect and development and being brought back to life by local volunteers of the Penllergare Trust for everyone to enjoy! Have an adventure discovering signs of the past, spotting wildlife, and exploring the lakes, waterfalls, river, woodland, forest and valley banks. Penllergare is stocked with a rich assortment of trees, shrubs, native and exotic plants thanks to John Dillwyn Llewelyn who exploited the natural beauty of the site in the 19th century. Both otter and water vole have been spotted and photographed at the Lower Lake. There are also a considerable number of rare birds visiting and nesting, proving the importance of Penllergare as a green corridor for a diverse range of wildlife.

Penllergare Valley Woods has recently been awarded Green Flag status for 2017.
