Location Location Location | Why we love Ogmore-by-Sea

The pretty coastal village of Ogmore-by-Sea is located on the Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Coast between Bridgend and Llantwit Major. Ogmore-by-Sea boasts one of the most impressive beaches in this part of Wales. On a low tide the beach stretches out for what seems like forever, reverting to several bays and the river-mouth at high tide. Ogmore’s beaches are a great choice for dog walking, surfing or just a day out with the family, plus it’s right on the Glamorgan Coastal Path so is a great spot for walkers too. If you fancy a day out, try walking to Ogmore Beach from the Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes, passing by Ogmore Castle and then follow the Glamorgan Coastal Path to Ogmore-by-Sea visiting the different bays including Hardy’s and then Southerndown.

It’s beautiful but also has everything you need…

Situated smack bang on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and within close proximity to the M4, you really do benefit from the best of the beautiful Welsh countryside but with the hustle and bustle of city life within easy reach. An hourly bus service runs through the village heading towards Barry and Bridgend, Llantwit Major train station serves local destinations and Bridgend station serves both the Valley Line as well as Swansea, Cardiff and London. Cardiff Airport is only 15 miles away, ideal for both business or leisure travel as flights leave for domestic and international destinations.

See and be seen…

Aside from the stunning coastline, explore a little further inland and you will find Cowbridge, a gorgeous little market town packed full of sophisticated shops and plays host to a fantastic food festival. One of South Wales’ most fashionable places, Cowbridge has become the place to see and be seen. The town boasts dozens of predominantly independent boutiques and restaurants. Some are spread along the High Street, others are in the arcades at Mason’s Yard and Verity’s Court – where you’ll find the Old Wool Barn art and craft workshops. Eating out in Cowbridge is always a treat. The town boasts a superb range of bistros, restaurants, pubs and wine bars catering for every taste.

With its rolling hills, pretty market towns and stunning coastline, you can’t fail to fall for The Vale of Glamorgan – from the the beautiful Dyffryn Gardens to the Victorian seaside resort of Penarth.

It’s definitely one for the foodies…

Whether you want to enjoy a riverside picnic, a coastal lunch, a gourmet meal in an award winning restaurant or simply just buy local ingredients to make your barbecue that little bit more special, the Vale’s friendly farm shops, farmers’ markets, cafes, restaurants and pubs will provide you with mouth watering food made with the finest produce in Wales. Don’t forget to check out Cowbridge Food & Drink Festival which takes place every May. Eating out within the vicinity there are a popular selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from including The Watermill and The Pelican in Ogmore, and Frolics Italian Restaurant in Southerndown.
