  • Still a relatively quiet and undiscovered treasure it is just a short drive from Swansea, Cardiff and the M4.
  • The red limestone and shale cliffs with their unique rock formations are embedded with fossils exposed by the tides which have to be seen to be believed.

Cowbridge & Llantwit Major
  • Do go to Cowbridge with its boutique shops lining the ancient Roman Road and then to Llantwit Major where the quaint narrow streets, steeped in Welsh history, are an ancient seat of learning for Welsh Saints.
St Donats Castle & Atlantic College
  • St Donats 12th century castle, sitting on the heritage coastline is the longest continually inhabited castle in Wales. Extensively restored in the 1920s with an eclectic mix of medieval features salvaged from England and France by the Californian newspaper magnet Randolf Hearst as a retreat for his mistress and is now home to the internationally renowned Atlantic College, part of the United World Colleges.
RNLI Rescue Craft

The Vale of Glamorgan near Heritage Coast holiday cottages
  • The Vale of Glamorgan has a wealth of history to discover from Cardiff to the Gower Peninsula - Neolithic, Bronze and Iron age - the hill forts overlapping with the Roman occupation and the remains are overlaid by the intervening years. From as early as 600AD religion, defence and trade are intertwined throughout the area with many castles and religious buildings remaining.
