Location, location, location: our new development at Parc Tondu

Parc Tondu is a stunning new development of 2,3- and 4-bedroom homes in the Tondu area of Bridgend. Llanmoor Homes will create a vibrant community of 405 beautiful modern homes with a combination of affordable housing and open market sales.

A former coal-mining village, Tondu, is located 3 miles north of Bridgend in South Wales and lies on the A4063 from Bridgend to Maesteg. With great railway links at Tondu Station to nearby cities Bridgend, Cardiff and Swansea, Tondu makes the perfect home for those who enjoy exploring the city but want an escape to a small historical village at the end of the day.

Tondu, coal and pit ponies

Tondu was established in the eighteenth century as a coal mining village that would serve the Parc Slip Colliery, and Tondu House was actually the site of Britain’s first hospital for colliery horses. What was once a thriving coal community is now a peaceful residential village with the River Llynfi flowing past.

Finding your forever home in this beautiful area of South Wales should be enough, but let’s look at some other reasons why living in Bridgend could be the best move for you…

There’s lots to do in the local area

Just a couple minutes walk from Parc Tondu there are a range of shops, cafes and restaurants including Lidl, Farmfoods and Domino’s Pizza. Who said you had to drive to do your food shopping?

One of the greatest things about living in Tondu is that you get access to a wealth of nature, history, food and drink, and attractions for the whole family to enjoy. Merthyr Mawr sand dunes provide the perfect location for your Sunday walks or perhaps a dip in the sea. This location is very popular with locals and offers peace and tranquility away from bustling city life.

Living in Tondu, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to parks and nature reserves. Right on your doorstep is the Parc Slip Nature Reserve which has over 10km of footpaths and circular walks, a friendly coffee shop, regular wildlife events and activities, as well as numerous bird watching hides overlooking different habitats. There’s also Bryngarw Country Park, Kenfig Nature Reserve and Parc Calon Lan just a short drive away, making the perfect place for a dog walk on a summer evening.

Attractions for all of the family

For the grown-up’s, there’s lots of bars and pubs to enjoy. Bang-On-Brewery is a 5-star rated brewery and taproom where you can create your own beer with your friends. McArthurglen Designer Outlet has a cinema, lots of restaurants and shops to make for the perfect rainy day out, and the best thing is, it’s just a stone’s throw away from Parc Tondu. Take a look at Visit Bridgend’s website to discover all of the fun on offer in the local area!

There’s great local schools

One of the great features about living in Tondu is that you have access to a range of excellent primary and secondary schools. Within a very short walking distance is Tondu Primary School. Other primary schools in the area include Brackla, Llangewydd and Tremains. Welsh-speaking children have access to the nearest local Welsh-medium school, Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Calon Y Cymoedd, just a 15-minute car ride away.

For English-speaking pupils, Tondu lies in the catchment area for Coleg Cymunedol Y Dderwen, a short 5-minute drive or 10-minute walk away.
