Merricks Bar and Restaurant at Cottrell Park Golf Resort is well worth a visit for a great night out and a low cost taxi home, while the children will enjoy a trip out to one of the many popular family restaurants at the Culverhouse Cross retail parks, including Burger King, Pizza Hut, also the Hangfire Smokehouse which is located in Barry.
Other local eateries worth investigating include the Indian Marigold, The Traherne Arms, the Three Horseshoes, the Aubrey Arms and the Beech Tree Inn.
Nearby Cardiff boasts some excellent restaurants for that special occasion, including the top rated French cuisine at The Pot, the traditional British food at The Clink, along with the many restaurants of the brewery quarter. For a romantic evening, dine at the water’s edge at Mermaid Quay, and don’t miss the a la carte afternoon teas at Tempus at Tides in Cardiff Bay.
As with many small Welsh villages, the local primary school, St Nicholas Church in Wales primary, is at the heart of village life, with most local pupils attending. As an alternative, Peterston-Super-Ely Church in Wales Primary is just a mile and a half away. Both schools are rated ‘good’ by Estyn.
Older pupils will need to travel a little, to either Cowbridge Comprehensive, or St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School, but there are regular buses. Once again, both schools are rated ‘good’. The Cardiff area also provides a selection of Welsh language and independent schools as part of your education choice.
There’s something for everyone within easy reach of St Nicholas, from breathtaking mountains to beautiful beaches. Cottrell Park Golf Resort is even closer, offering superb facilities including two championship courses, a fine restaurant and more.
Head south to the seaside fun of Barry Island where the fairground has been drawing the crowds for almost 100years, or head north to the wide open spaces of the beautiful Brecon Beacons national park.
Plus, of course, there’s Cardiff, one of the fastest growing and most vibrant cities in the UK, right on your doorstep. Enjoy international rugby action, big name concerts, test cricket, Championship football and so much more, plus theatres, multi-screen cinemas, friendly bars and lively nightclubs – all within the compact city centre.
Culverhouse Cross, just a mile from the development, is one of Cardiff’s main retail centres, with no less than two retail parks (Vale Gate, Brooklands and Wenvoe) in one easy to reach location. The parks have everything from M&S to DIY, furniture to fashion.
