One of our smallest nature reserves is a hidden gem with a big history.
The site is named after a local smuggler, Captain Pug, who was believed to have buried his treasure here.
Pug’s Hole is a valley with steep wooded slopes. A path leads down through the valley, or you can take the wooded trails that run around the site. None of the paths are paved, so this site is unsuitable for wheelchairs.
Trees at Pug’s Hole include Scots pines, hazel, rowan and sycamore. These are home to birds such as woodpeckers, nuthatches, coal tits and treecreepers.
Pug’s Hole is just west of Meyrick Park golf course. You can see the location on our map.
