Glamorgan Heritage Coast & Countryside, originally uploaded by Tourism Bridgend.
Dramatic cliffs, golden sands, rolling countryside, majestic mountains and unparalleled diversity. Where else but the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and Countryside.
It is a beautiful region where history tumbles out to greet you around every corner. In fact it’s like Wales in miniature. Everything in close proximity. Castles, ancient inns, mysterious mansions, rugged coast and inspiring churches, all contained within 28 miles of coastal scenery that also includes villages, towns, history and legends. Everything you could possibly want in a great holiday is here. If you are looking for something a little more active, this is the place.
