Persimmon Homes

Burry Port

Your new house in Burry Port is part of the dramatic historic coast of Wales, with stunning views across to the Gower. Once a busy harbour built in the 19th century to ship the coal from the Gwendraeth Valley as well as tinplate, copper, silver and lead to the world – today the peaceful harbour is home to leisure craft and sun seekers.

Part of the Millennium Coastal Park, your new home in Burry Port has the famous Parson’s Pickle Factory, with pickled cockles and mussels with a secret local ingredient. Surprise visitor, Amelia Earhart, became the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean landing in Burry Port in 1928 – her monument still stands in the town centre. Flying to the shops is also easy with a good selection of local vendors, including restaurants, takeaways, homeware and gifts close to your new build Burry Port home.

Wide open spaces from your South Wales new build

A short drive from your new home in Burry Port is the Pembrey Country Park and Beach offering 500 acres of parkland packed with woodland walking trails and accessible paths as well as golden sandy beaches. Try the 18-hole crazy golf course or let the children go bananas in the adventure playground. If you’d rather have adrenaline than icecream, head to Wales’ longest toboggan run and ski slope topping a whopping 130 metres.

Good schools within walking distance of your new house

Your new home in Burry Port is well served by good schools. There are three primary schools, Burry Port Community Primary School, Ysgol Parc-y-Tywyn and Pembrey Primary School.

While the coal shipments have ceased, the Pembrey and Burry Port railway remains, with regular services to Pembrokeshire, Swansea and Cardiff as well as London and Manchester.
