Ddraig Valley Farm Park
Geraint Robson and Caitlyn Corless, both from Cardiff, founded Ddraig Valley Farm Park in Pencoed, an animal centre designed to allow the public to get close to and learn more about both traditional and exotic species. Ddraig Valley Farm is home to traditional farm animals such as goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, donkeys and geese, as well as more unusual species such as tortoises, iguanas, terrapins, quails and alpacas. Tickets cost just £4 and all proceeds go back to the animals themselves.
