Well worth a visit
Ogmore-by-sea is a pretty coastal village in the Vale of Glamorgan. Situated on the mouth of the river Ogmore, where on the estuary, you may spot egrets and many interesting birds species. It forms part of the picturesque Glamorgan Heritage Coastal Path. Explore it's intriguing history, visit the historic ruins of Ogmore castle, then cross the near-by stepping stones and search for the lost village of Treganllaw, swallowed long ago by the sand dunes of Merthyr Mawr.
Enjoy a walk
Start at Ogmore-by-Sea car park, which is right on the expansive beach with views out over the dunes, across the bay to Porthcawl and over the channel to Somerset.
Follow one of several paths alongside the estuary and you’ll see Ogmore Castle in the distance. Walk towards it along the bank of the river. If the tide is high, you will have to join the main road briefly. Beware of the White Lady who haunts the castle, protecting her buried treasure.
