Penarth Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 25 photos
Cosmeston Park is about 5 miles from Penarth, on the B4267 road , on the way to Sully. The park is in an area where there were once landfill pits. These have now been turned into lakes , and the area has become a park where there are walks through the tree- lined paths, areas of grass-land and wild flowers, and where water birds nest. There are two walks , one of a mile and a half, and a second more difficult. It was a nice to see so many elderly people walking as couples or with a dog, mothers with their babies in prams, as well as younger people, nature photographers, men with remote contolled model ships, and casual visitors like us. There are paths assigned to dogs, and for horses.
There is a cafe with beverages, cakes and sandwiches all at reasonable prices. There is a shop with nature-related souvenirs. It is here that you get the tickets and guide for the Medieval Village [see separate tip]
On a warm sunny day it is a most enjoyable place to spend a few hours.
Warning: swimming is not permitted as the water is dangerous.
