Caerphilly: Call the Welsh valleys home

Caerphilly: Call the Welsh valleys home

Wales has an abundance of beautiful countryside and scenic views, making a very attractive option for relocators who are looking to move to a more rural location.

Rolling hills and vast expanses of green are just a couple of reasons why people could consider one of  the Welsh valleys as a great location to start a new home.

For those seeking a town with both good local amenities and a rural identity, property for sale in Caerphilly could be just the location you are looking for.

Located in the verdant Rhymney Valley, the quaint town is surrounded by nature at almost every turn. Close by the town is watched over by the looming Caerphilly mountain which lies between the town and the capital Cardiff.

Perhaps most famously known for the delicious, crumbly cheese that bears its namesake, Caerphilly also has a number of other attributes that are worth shouting about.

It is home to the second largest castle in Britain, a magnificent structure that was built by the Normans to control the surrounding area. This fantastic fortress stands firm in the centre of the town, adding to the historic feel of Caerphilly.

In terms of educational facilities, the town does very well in this respect. With 95 schools located in the area, parents are afforded a choice when it comes to deciding where their children will go to learn. Under the  Welsh government's banding system, Oakdale Comprehensive and Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni have both received the top status available for their quality.

If a spot of shopping is what you are after, then the town centre has plenty of options available. Whether you are doing the weekly food shop or just looking to get a treat for yourself, Caerphilly’s centre combines larger high street brands with independent retailers, meaning that there is something for everyone.

What’s more, Caerphilly was the birthplace of the UK’s funniest Briton, Tommy Cooper. The madcap comedian was born in town in 1921 and lived there until he was around three years old.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801685099-ADNFCR
