The town of Bridgend, also known as Welsh Pen-y-bont Ar Ogwr, is a rural town, peaceful enough to be a quiet serene place to live, but also close enough to a number of amenities and some truly awesome things to do. From Ogmore Castle, Coity Castle and the 14th century Candleston Castle, Bridgend offers history and a rich family culture for all its residents to enjoy. Bridgend has both industrial and commercial estates and shopping centres with very popular shops to browse through. Beautiful Porthcawl is one of the leading coastal resorts in South Wales, frequented by its residents as well as visitors from all over the UK. Think Ocean breeze, greenery and long brisk walks to fill up an afternoon. Bridgend is also a quick drive down the M4 to Cardiff or Swansea for some fantastic shopping, restaurants and pubs.
