Things to do...
We have so much to enjoy on our doorstep to ensure your staycation this year rivals any previous overseas breaks. From rolling hills to beach side trip, quirky villages & ancient monuments lurking in lonely fields.
We have hand picked some of our favourites beaches below but for even more inspiration, have a look at these links.... or just give us a call, there is nothing we love more than talking about things to do in the local area.
The Heritage Coast
Boasting the 14 mile stretch of the dramatic Glamorgan Heritage Coastline, inland is an idyllic mix of rolling hills, country lanes, bustling markets; towns, and fascinating churches and castles. Glamorgan Heritage Coast provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities, exploring local legends and enjoying great food and drink.
Also known as Dunraven Bay, it is a beautiful sandy beach with high rocks exposed at high tide. The Glamorgan Heritage Coast stretches for 14 miles and is enclosed by the most dramatic cliffs.
For the fossil hunters, Southerndown is perfect and so it’s been said, it’s the best beach in the area to find those fossils. Not just a beach though, it is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and is home to the spectacular Dunraven Castle.
Ogmore By Sea
Perfectly positioned between Bridgend and Llantwit Major, it’s the locals choice for walking dogs, surfing or simple strolls.
The River Ogmore also joins the sea here attracting some fascinating wildlife whatever the season. Salmon & sea trout run up the river, as do mullet, flounder & bass. The Winter birdlife is also a spectacle with frequent visits from golden eye ducks and lapwings.
Llantwit Major Beach
This pebble and rock beach has a beautiful backdrop of the cliffs.
Popular with dog walkers and families, you can find plenty of crabs & starfish in the rockpools as well as hunt for fascinating fossils.
The beach has beautiful view across the Bristol Channel, towards Minehead and Exmoor.
Who needs to go to Dubai to experience the sand dunes, when we have these beautiful hills on our doorstep. Renowned for the highest dune in Wales “The Big Dipper” the Merthyr Mawr Warren Nature Reserve extend to 840 acres….just a casual comparison in size to 340 rugby pitches!
Just a stones throw from the Coed-Y-Mwstwr the dunes are a must visit if you are joining us for a Winter escape.
