Another great RocketTheme Joomla Template brought to you by the RocketTheme Joomla Template Club.

Local places of interest in the area include:

  • Aberavon Beach - a 3-mile stretch of golden sand, sand dunes and promenade. A popular location for surfing and kite surfing with an excellent Cafe. There is also a childrens play area and paddling pool. The Multiplex Cinema is also located here.
  • Margam Country Park - Set in 1000 acres of glorious parklands, Margam Country Park offers natural beauty, history, wildlife and a wide range of fun activities and facilities. You can explore the magnificent 18th Century Orangery, an impressive and picturesque Tudor-Gothic style Victorian Mansion House (a well known spot for ghost-hunters...!), a 12th Century Chapter House, ornamental gardens, ancient woodland (Graig Fawr) and the best deer herd in Wales. The narrow gauge railway, children's adventure playground, farm trail, Fairytale Land and the splendid walks and cycling trails are some of the features which contribute to the experience of Margam Country Park.
  • Kenfig Nature Reserve - miles of sand dunes through which you can walk, and an ancient sunken village (which of course you can't see but Lisa keeps ranting on about it!).
