South Wales Map

I know from some of the other South Wales sites that I maintain, that people new to the area are often stuck for a good online map.  I’m really into Google Maps at the moment so I’ve set up a page with an embedded South Wales map to help you along!  You can find the South Wales map page here – https://www.south-wales.org/map-of-south-wales/

Things to do in South Wales

River Ewenny

So you’re wondering what to do in South Wales?

Updated 9th June 2008: visit my Things to Do in South Wales page for even more ideas.


Here are a few of my ideas taken from my other site http://www.south-wales.info and updated.

Coed-Y-Mwstwr Hotel Bridgend

Photo of the front of the Coed-Y-Mwstwr HotelIf you’re looking for a hotel in South Wales I can thoroughly recommend the “Coed” near Bridgend. It’s run by a friend of mine so I’m a little biased, but it’s a great place to stay if you’re looking for a little comfort and piece and quiet.

It’s a country house hotel with 28 rooms in a great location – in the countryside but only 5 minutes from Bridgend and 5 minutes from the M4 motorway. It’s great for morning coffee as well – it feels quite luxurious sitting in the lounge area in the comfy chairs. A lot of my friends and colleagues rave about the place so don’t just take my word for it!

Have a look at their website for more information – http://www.coed-y-mwstwr.com/

Start of my new South Wales site

So this is it, the first item on my new blog about South Wales. Having sold my previous site on South Wales tourism (http://www.south-wales.org.uk) to my new friend Bob it’s time to move on. Obviously I don’t want to replicate anything on my old site so the idea of this site is to post things that I find interesting about South Wales as I spend my time here. I’ve a big interest in photography so I expect to post a lot of pictures of South Wales and the surrounding area. I also expect to suggest the best pubs and restaurants that I discover as I still have a keen interest in this topic!

Here’s my first photo taken earlier today – the River Ewenny at Merthyr Mawr. Much more picturesque than when it flows through nearby Bridgend!
