Llantwit Major

While Llantwit Major has grown massively in recent years, it’s retained much of its old-world charm, with narrow cobbled streets, an old town hall with gatehouse and several buildings that date back to the 16th century. Once a respected centre of Christian culture in the Celtic world, today Llantwit Major is known as one of the most attractive places to live in Wales.

Surrounded by lush green countryside with a Jurassic coastline, your new home in Llantwit Major offers beauty with utility. The town is well-served by B-roads, and its railway station, which was reopened in 2005, offers services to Aberdare via Barry and Cardiff. The town has a couple of convenience stores, a leisure centre, bookshop, gift shop and various independent boutiques. Your new house is close to a community centre, GPs and four primary schools as well as a very good secondary school. A new build in Llantwit Major has everything you need.
