Go for a day out in bryngarw park and house
Close to the spectacular Glamorgan Heritage Coast and with walking trails leading from the park itself through beautiful valleys to dramatic hilltops beyond, Bryngarw enjoys a sense of seclusion.
Easy access from the outlet, the park and house grounds offer excellent walks and parking for all.
Local ramblers come here and I had the opportunity to take a good 3 mile walk down the now disused train lines and through the ground to the center and car park. Excellent day out
Quaint market town in Southern Wales (UK)
"Well worth a visit"
Bridgend is one of those lesser known destinations that will always be an 'also-ran' as it is bypassed by a large motorway which takes visitors on to better known resorts in West Wales or England. However, by missing it, you will be missing a great opportunity to see a lovely little town just 5 miles from an extroadinary 8 mile coastline with European Blue Flag beaches and a wonderful laid-back atmosphere. The town is perfectly situated for touring South Wales and is only 20 minutes from Wales' capital city of Cardiff and its maritime city of Swansea. The very motorway that by passes it, also give superb access to all the other places in South Wales such as Pembrokeshire, The Brecon Beacons etc. If coming to South Wales, make a point of visiting my local town. Ask me if you want any more info.
"The bridge that gives it its name"
This is the old footbridge built in the 14th century and washed away by floods, then rebuilt again in the 17th century. Built to help the pilgrims cross the river on their way to St David's.
"Great place for events"
Throughout the summer the town comes alive with numerous events including entertainers, dances, food and drink.
Birdgend - town modernising with service
Bridgend has tried many bold moves in recent years to restart and renovate business and local industry. The town centre has changed little apart from shops and some structural changes. But there are a good selection of shops and services and good day out in you've no other plans for the day.
Had the chance to living in a 2-bed terraced in brackla estates and live close to the triangle shopping area.
Good church at the triangle and good sized gym.
Chip shops average and the co-op little expensive. However, some good local restaurants and good bike rides can be made to bridgend
