St Athan is situated between Llantwit Major and Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. The area is renowned for its Heritage Countryside Walks, fishing and places of historical interest. Although it is mostly known as an RAF training school and station, there is still much to be seen in the village and surrounding area. The new landmarks of Cardiff such as the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff International Arena, Wales Millennium Centre and Cardiff Bay are just 20 minutes drive away.
Several walks radiate out from the village. The Valeways Millennium Heritage Trail passes close by as it threads its way from Llantwit Major and Boverton en-route to Llanmihangel and Cowbridge. The village sits on the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which runs from Aberthaw to Porthcawl and offers great opportunities for exploring the beautiful coastline. ....
