Situated on the western edge of Cardiff at the top of the Tumble above Culverhouse Cross, the Cardiff and The Vale Natural Burial Meadow has superb views with glimpses of the Millenium Stadium, St Fagans, Castell Coch, Caerphilly, the Garth Mountain and beyond.
The meadow is part of the picturesque parkland that forms Coedarhydyglyn Park; a historic designed landscape with Grade II* Listed status.
The site is open all year round during daylight hours so please feel free to visit without making an appointment.
There are no toilet facilities at the burial ground, so please visit WC's in the nearby superstores or restaurants at Culverhouse Cross before arriving.

"Peaceful, perfect place for a farmer to rest. Dad loved wide open fields and spent all his working life in the open air so to be in a place with far reaching views over his home City of Cardiff is something he would have really appreciated"
