Swallow Watch

In these strange corona virus times it feels more important than ever to embrace the power and beauty of nature. We want to bring a little part of the Park right into your living room with our new Swallows nest camera! We will be posting up a new clip of the latest action from the nest every couple of days. We can all follow the saga right through the nesting season from building the nest to laying eggs and chicks...we hope you enjoy!

 

Castle and Gardens

Listed Grade I as a mansion of exceptional quality, the Castle has some spectacular features such as the vast stairhall and octagonal tower.

The house was built in 1830 – 40 at a cost of £50,000 using sandstone from nearby Pyle quarry. Listed Grade I as a mansion of exceptional quality, the Castle has some spectacular features such as the vast stairhall and octagonal tower.

In our gardens you are surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers, classic and modern planting, lakes and long vistas which have evolved since medieval times.

Deer and Wildlife

Discovering Nature

The famous Margam Deer Herd today roams through approximately 500 acres (200 hectares) of parkland. It dates from Norman times, the herd, originally exclusively fallow, is of excellent genetic quality to rival any herd in the British Isles.

The relative freedom from disturbance and the wide variety of habitats in the Park have encouraged many different plants and animals to make the Park their home.

Among the more common mammals to be seen are foxes, badgers, hares, grey squirrels, voles and shrews. Moles are abundant on the lower parts of the park, their presence betrayed by molehills.

Mute Swans, Coots, Moorhens, Canadian Geese, Mallard, Tufted duck and Pochard inhabit the lakes, whilst the patient observer may see Kingfishers besides the streams. Skylarks, Stonechats and Wheatears can be seen over the grasslands with Buzzards, Kestrels and occasional Red Kite in the skies.
