Cowbridge: Commuter paradise in Wales

Cowbridge: Commuter paradise in Wales

Working in a big city can be stressful enough, without having to live among the hustle and bustle as well, so many people who have jobs in these larger settlements will sometimes take the option to move towards somewhere smaller and more peaceful. 

If this sort of lifestyle is what you seek, then you might opt to look towards the more rural options that can be found in the market towns that are available around the country and commute to work. A good example of this will be found when looking at property for sale in Cowbridge.

The market town is located in Wales just seven miles from Cardiff, making it the perfect distance from the larger settlement for those who want to travel to work, while it is also home to just 3,500 people, which means it will be ideal for those seeking a quieter way of life away from busy roads.

Getting to work each morning could not be easier, with a multitude of options. Travelling by road will take drivers just 20 minutes, while those who want to relax on their commute will be able to enjoy the regular X2 bus.

You will want to also know that the town itself is good to live in though for times when you are away from the office, and thankfully Cowbridge has much to offer. The settlement has a mix of old and new buildings that give a nod to the past and history of Wales while also being modern enough.

Parents will also be eager to know about the schools, and will be glad to know that the local comprehensive is one of the best performing in the whole of the country, with 1,300 pupils in attendance.

And in terms of feeling like a part of a community - often a big part of living in this sort of smaller place - locals will be able to mingle with others at the annual food festival that takes place in October, or the reindeer parade which has embedded itself in the traditions of the town each November.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801592919-ADNFCR
