Porthkerry Country Park
You can't get better than this for a really well rounded family day trip: 220 acres of eminently explorable woodland and meadows, concluding in a charming limestone pebbled beach great for scenic walks between Bulwarks Iron Age Hill Fort and Bullnose Cliff. You can partially climb the cliff via the Golden Stairs which aren't quite as alluring as they sound.
Within the park itself you can find a great little 12 hole pitch and putt course, not to be confused with mini or adventure golf! PnP is just as tricky as normal golfing so is best suited to older types. There are also meandering scenic nature trails of varying lengths and difficulties to follow (pick up a trail map in advance online), plus isolated picnic spots and BBQ areas (BBQ incurs charges: call 029 2070 1678 to book one) scattered pretty widely about so you can almost always find yourself a quiet spot. There is also a multi age range adventure playground with classic and contemporary styled play equipment and a central cafe which is family friendly and has outdoor deck seating.
Toilet facilities available near car park.
