Our Groups are up and running with their activities.   While there is generally no fixed maximum number of participants on an event, an event may have a limit in place based on it's risk assessment.   All events still require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

This is an approx. 7 mile route of mainly easy walking. The hardest part will be through a few sand dunes!!

We will start at Kenfig nature reserve and make our way through the golf course-- fore!!--and on to Sker house,

a yellow whitewashed building, which is very noticeable from all around.

It was constructed about 900 years ago as the grange of Neath Abbey. There would have been a farm with outbuildings and barns, accommodation for the Cistercian monks who worked there and a chapel.

We will continue on a country lane to the village of Nottage.

Then we will proceed onto the seafront of Porthcawl at Rest bay, where we will just have to have a rest, before our walk back to Kenfig on the Wales coastal path, looping via Kenfig pool back to the start.

This is a very beautiful walk. Walking shoes or sturdy trainers are ideal.
