Glamorgan

Situated on Wales’ most southerly coast Glamorgan and the Vale of Glamorgan are home to the capital city of Cardiff. Here’s you’ll also find a beautiful coastal landscape of sandy beaches, windswept cliffs and the green rolling hills of the interior.

The stunning Gower Peninsula was in fact the very first place to be awarded an ‘Area of Outstanding Beauty’ and 50 years on it still rightly has this accolade. This enclosed peninsula is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Bristol Channel and has rich and varied landscape. Here you’ll find clean sandy beaches (including Rhossili beach voted in the top ten beaches in the world by TripAdvisor in 2014), dramatic wind swept cliffs, hills, valleys and woodland; just perfect for a relaxing break where you can unwind amongst a most beautiful and unspoilt environment.

The Glamorgan Heritage Coast extends for some 14 miles from Porthcawl to Aberthaw, where there are uncrowded beaches and wonderful sea views. Of particular note is Dunraven Bay and the walk from St. Donat’s to Llantwit Major is well worth tackling. While at Llantwit Major you could take the opportunity to tour the Nash Point Lighthouse, allow an hour and the tour is subject to weather conditions – remember there a lot of steps!

Porthkerry Country Park near Barry is a sheltered valley comprised of 220 acres of forest and meadowland with nature trails, picnic areas, mini-golf and a play area; it’s one of the best places to keep the family entertained and is close enough to the coast for pottering by the sea or climbing up the cliffs for great views.

If you like to be beside the seaside then Whitmore Bay at Barry Island offers a winning combination of British holiday heritage and some lovely expanses of sand and sea. Similarly, the pier at Penarth offers a fantastic window into the Glamorgan holidays of yesteryear, while being a fantastic attraction in its own right.

For a calming and peaceful day out visit Dyffryn Gardens in the Vale of Glamorgan countryside. Extending over 55 acres this wonderful Edwardian Grade 1 garden has an Arboretum of trees from around the world, formal lawns, and garden rooms. To see nature at its very best then Kenfig Nature Reserve is the place to be, this sand dune nature reserve is also home to Glamorgan’s biggest natural lake; a great place to see insect and bird life. It also has a visitor center and shop.

This part of Wales is not short on natural beauty and there are plenty of days out and activities to enjoy. So take a look at holiday cottages in Glamorgan.
