Seaside Location 
Ogmore-by-Sea is a beautiful coastal village situated on the western limit of the breath-taking Glamorgan Heritage Coast. With its wide sand and pebble beaches, it is a popular spot for walkers, fishermen, and with surfers and other coastal sport enthusiasts. Ogmore Beach is patrolled, in season, by RNLI lifeguards and unlike other local beaches dogs are welcome all year round. A mile to the west, across the Ogmore River, are the historic Merthyr Mawr sand dunes (a Site of Special Scientific Interest) and a mile to the east is Dunraven Bay (part of the Southerndown Coast Site of Special Scientific Interest and a geologist's paradise). The Southdown Golf Club with its championship heathland links course is two miles away. The historic market town of Cowbridge is 9 miles.

The Saint Brides Major Church in Wales Primary School is at 3 miles and Cowbridge Comprehensive School is at 10 miles. School buses run to and from both schools from the bottom of Somerset View.
Ogmore-by-Sea has good road links to Bridgend, Cowbridge, Cardiff and to Swansea. The A48 provides excellent links to the M4 and to the national motorway network making Swansea and Cardiff reachable in less than 30 minutes.

Bridgend main line train station (approximately 4 miles) offers a fast and frequent service to Cardiff (20 mins), Bristol (60 mins), Reading (1hr 54 mins) and London Paddington (2hrs 23 mins) making commuting very convenient.

Cardiff airport with its direct flights to Europe is 16 miles away.

Vendor Comments: 
'St Clair is our much loved family home. It is now time for us to move on but we will miss the wonderful sea views, the easy access to the lovely sandy beaches and the beautiful walks along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Our children have loved the wide expanse of sand at low tide where they have played in the rock pools, and learnt to ride their bikes in safety. The firework displays every high day and holiday are spectacular and we have front row seats to view it from the Garden Room and from the terrace. We hope St Clair's new owners will love her as much as we do and enjoy as many happy years living here as we have.'
