Town and city breaks in South Glamorgan
A hotel in South Glamorgan will put you right next to Cardiff, the city that has it all. The ancient city is made up of numerous distinct districts, each with its own flavour and history. The Millennium Stadium, the colossal witness to numerous defeats of the town's main adversaries (the English rugby team), towers in the distance. Powerful Cardiff Castle also dominates the skyline. The city is a great destination for shoppers. Queen Street and St Mary Street are places to head for high-quality clothes and designer brands. The Dickensian shopping arcades, built during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, will appeal to those looking for something a bit quirkier. Cardiff is easily accessible from your hotel in South Glamorgan but there is also plenty elsewhere. Take a trip to Stacey's stomping ground, Barry, brought into widespread public consciousness by the highly successful BBC comedy (Gavin and Stacey) by Ruth Jones and James Corden. Take a trip to the wonderful and traditional Cowbridge, Penarth, Sully or Llantwit Major to experience a more local feel.
Holidays in the South Glamorgan countryside
Staying at a charming and cosy hotel in South Glamorgan will give you easy access to the gorgeous Vale of Glamorgan, a typically Welsh landscape, rolling away gently as far as the eyes can see, punctuated occasionally by small peaceful settlements like St Mellons or Llanishen. No matter where your South Glamorgan hotel is located, make sure you take a cliff-top walk along the Glamorgan Heritage Coat and see the historic defences and forts that chain the coastline; medieval St Donat's Castle in particular is worth looking out for. Magical stones at Tinkinswood supposedly make wishes come true. Here, the cairns are older than Stonehenge.
Beach holidays in South Glamorgan
The Glamorgan Heritage Coast, a 22-km stretch of protected area is perhaps the highlight of the small Welsh county. Stroll down to where land meets sea from your South Glamorgan hotel and witness the fierce nature and beautiful views. There are miles of footpaths and country lanes to take in as well as the golden beaches, rugged cliffs and hidden coves. The surreal 12 metre-tall sculpture, The Kite Trail, frames the sky on Aberavon Sands surfers' beach. Head to Blue Flag Bracelet Bay with the kids and a net for an afternoon of rock-pooling under the limestone cliffs.
Attractions in South Glamorgan
There is plenty to occupy aeveryone in the small Welsh county. Your Glamorgan hotel is in the thick of the county's favourite playgrounds. Boisterous kids can enjoy five-a-side-sumo on the popular children's attraction, Barry Adventure Island.. Adults can blow off a bit of steam at Porthkery Country Park with a bit of nine-hole pitch and putt. Coney Beach Amusement Park in Porthcawl is home to the topsy-turvy Megablitz roller coaster. Failing the gaudy attractions aimed at holidaymakers, the unique and breath-taking scenery of southern Wales will keep the most hardened traveller satisfied for weeks.
