Chris Davies - Rhoose
Rhoose is one of the most vibrant, fastest growing villages in South Wales. Situated in a small community near the sea enclosed by villages and settlements such as Font-Y-Gary, Penmark, Porthkerry and the Hamlet of Fonmon.
Best known for being home of Wales' only International airport, Rhoose is around 12 miles South West of Cardiff and 3 miles from Barry. Along with it's primary school and rail station, this makes it best placed for people commuting to Cardiff, Barry and Bridgend who are looking for that little taste of country life without the expense of some associated villages in the Vale.
A beautiful coastal village, Rhoose is also home to the 'hidden gem' that is Rhoose Point which is rich in wildlife and Wales' most Southerly Point. Designated as a 'site of importance for nature conservation' full of grassland areas, scenic lakes and dramatic cliffs. Many coastal paths surround the area and offer breath taking views of the Channel.
Rhoose is also the location of Fontygary holiday park, shops, library and small businesses as well as neighbouring the 12th century fortified medieval castle of Fonmon and it's central duck pond.
