    From their Facebook page:

    Haven't been to Margam Park for several years (used to visit quite often) but I do remember seeing quite a lot of caravans/motorhomes at the far end of the park every year, presumably on THS/rally events.

    Probably a bit too close for me to use, but could be useful for anyone heading west along the M4.....if they get planning permission.

    Must admit I do like walking around the place. Pity some of it has been left to decay. The main steps up to the house from the orangery are in a very bad state of repair.:Sad:

    Still a great place to visit with loads of history.:thumb:

    Yes...that rings a bell...years ago the main entrance was at the other end of the park.

    They weren't great the last time I was there.

    I wonder if the boar and pot-bellied pigs are still there? Must visit again soon :Blush:

    And let's not forget the wonderful view of beautiful Port Talbot that greets any visitors :RollEyes:

    Good for caravanners but not so good for motorhomes unless just for weekend or en route to somewhere else suppose this means all club rallies will stop

    I visit there quite often and i loves it :BigGrin: great walks for us and the dogs, animal area and bike trails & much more. There are lots of events on in the summer too, it`s another real gem on my doorstep.

    Bringing an old thread back to life...I visited Margam today for the first time since I posted 2 years ago.

    There were 9 caravans and a motorhome, presumably a rally, on the old car park. No sign of any development. I can't even find a planning application for the club site on Neath Port Talbot CBC's web site.

    It looks like this site proposal has disappeared without a trace.
