Nr Bridgend, Bridgend, Vale Of Glamorgan

About ten minutes drive from Bridgend near Ogmore, you can explore the castle ruins (often populated by sheep or ponies), then use the stepping stones to cross the River Ewenny at low tide. Stroll down the path to the village and sand dunes of Merthyr Mawr – but don’t linger until high tide, or you may have trouble getting back across the stepping stones. Check timings on arrival.
