Fantastic views and good walks off in many different directions. Free parking and a good cafe to fill up or just stop for a drink.

Caerphilly mountain is great. But once you park at the car park it really is just a small hill. The snack bar is super tasty though and the views are amazing. A great place to blow away the cobwebs and take in a spectacular view.

We often talk long walks here with our dogs and with family member from out of town. The view is incredible of both Caerphilly and Cardiff in the distance.

This is a mountain. It is in Caerphilly. You can climb it if you want to. You don't have to if you don't want to. If it's raining you'll get wet, if it's sunny then you won't.
