Valley of the Stags 

These walks lead you through one of the more interesting parts of the Vale, an area of attractive scenery that abounds with historical features. They also introduce you to four Vale settlements, Llancarfan, Penmark, Llancadle and Llanbethery. The terrain is mostly gentle, with just a few short climbs. However, there are two or three stretches that can become very muddy, mostly during winter's rainy spells. The opening up of the footpath to the south of Llancarfan, along Nant Carfan's (stream of the stags) valley, means that a shorter walk option (17A) can also be offered.

Distance: Main walk 6 miles; shorter option 3 and 3/4 miles.

Map: Explorer 151

Parking: At the walk's start in Llancarfan; Car park over bridge to rear of The Fox and Hounds Inn.

Public Transport: Buses to Cowbridge.

Refreshments: At The Fox and Hounds (LLancarfan) and Six Bells (Penmark)


START: Car park at Grid Ref. 052702
