Llantwit Major is a popular coastal town and community in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan in Wales. Our new development Heritage Gate is in a fantastic location, there’s bound to be a property to suit you perfectly.
Lying on the Bristol Channel coast, the town’s Welsh name ‘Llanilltud Fawr’ means ‘llan’ church enclosure and ‘Illtud’ + ‘mawr’ great. Llantwit Major is recognised as being one of the most important early Christian settlement in Wales as Saint Illtud founded a church and religious school there in around 500 AD.
It’s one of four towns in the Vale of Glamorgan and the third largest by population after Barry (10 miles) and Penarth (17 miles), and ahead of Cowbridge, which lies about 4.5 miles to the northeast. Llantwit Major is conveniently positioned just 18 miles south-west of the centre of the Welsh capital of Cardiff, with its fantastic amenities and job opportunities.
Llantwit Major’s medieval cobbled streets and 15th and 16th century buildings add a real charm to the town. With its wealth of history, the compact old town is a maze of narrow streets, old inns and ancient buildings. The imposing church of St Illtud is also worth exploring with its impressive collection of carved stones and Celtic crosses, many of which are older than the church itself. Also within walking distance of the town is Colhugh Beach, which has some stunning cliff-top scenery. Popular with surfers, it’s also a great place enjoy coastal walks along the Wales Coast Path. You can also explore the remnants of an Iron Age fort and seek out some of the finest examples of Jurassic-period fossils in Wales.
