Ty Mawr Country Park

Ty Mawr country park which is about 30 minutes from the centre has all the fun of the farm in the magnificent setting of the River Dee Valley. There are lots of animals you can meet at Ty Mawr such as donkeys, pigs, and goats. You can even feed the free range chickens and ducks or admire Lawrence the guard Llama, who protects the sheep from foxes! There is a childrens play area on site and a bike track.

At Ty Mawr they do not use chemicals and pesticides on the land. That is why they have many species of wild plants and animals and in the summer their traditional hay meadows are full of colour. You can take a gentle stroll down to the river, sit and relax and see if you can spot a salmon jumping!

Picturesquely situated beneath the dramatic Cefn Viaduct on the banks of the River Dee, Ty Mawr provides some of the best scenery around.
Why not take a longer walk along the riverside to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, along the Cefn Heritage Trail or link up with the Offas Dyke National Trail?
Whether its to admire the view, to see the farm animals or to take a walk, you could take a picnic and have a great day out at Ty Mawr Country Park.
