Craig-y-Nos, Abercrave (Swansea)

Updated: Aug 10, 2021

A country park in the Upper Swansea Valley where you can feed the ducks, throw stones in the river and picnic on the large grassed areas.

Why Visit Craig-y-Nos?

  • This is a lovely and peaceful park to walk around and you can make the stroll as long or as short as you like.

  • There are ducks in the ponds if you have a mini human that likes to feed them.

  • I would say that the majority of the paths are pram and wheelchair friendly, although there are some routes (that you wouldn't HAVE to go on to get all the way around) that aren't suitable due to exposed roots etc.

  • There are a few rivers along the route with little bridges to walk over - these make great spots for Pooh Sticks!

Cooper's dungs are from Ayah & L Apparel - COOPER10 for discount

  • There are public toilets at the car park and parking is £1.50 for 2 hours or £2.50 for all day.

  • We had some drinks and cakes in the Cafe by the entrance and they were really nice. Although, if you're looking for somewhere nice to eat, the Ancient Britain is close by and the Pen-y-Cae in is great to stop with children as it has a small zoo in the back and a park by its side (the Sunday Dinners here are AMAZING!!)

  • I'm not sure I'd be confident to let Cooper go on his balance bike around here as there's a lot of water that he could easily drive into!


This is somewhere lovely to go for a walk - it doesn't have the same appeal for me as the Gnoll as it doesn't have a playground and it's not as safe to take bikes, but it is well kept and has stone throwing opportunities that the Gnoll doesn't!
