Persimmon Homes


The ancient village of Coity is famous for Coity Castle, one of the most impressive ruins of a medieval fortress in Wales. Aside from its 12th century heritage, the village has bags of kerb appeal with a cosy, intimate character and a pretty Norman church, surrounded by green fields. While Bridgend is merely a stone's throw away, your new home in Coity keeps its independence of spirit, but enjoys all the facilities its larger neighbour brings, including good employment opportunities, shopping, schools, GPs and a hospital.

The M4, under two miles to the north, gives you great connectivity to larger cities including Cardiff and Swansea. Your new build in Coity is also less than 10 miles from the coast of Porthcawl and Ogmore by Sea Beach. Kenfig National Nature Reserve and the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are both under 20 minutes drive away. If you're looking for a great location for a new house, Coity has it all.
