SITUATION The village of Wick is positioned within attractive countryside and is a short distance from the heritage coastline, with its beautiful cliff top walks and mixture of sandy and stony beaches. Wick is one of the more self-contained villages in the Vale of Glamorgan and contains a number of period houses, a local shop and post office, Church in Wales Primary School, two public houses, church, village hall, village green and local rugby and cricket clubs. Although enjoying the benefits of a rural community, the village is accessible to the towns of Cowbridge and Llantwit Major which both include a good range of retail facilities, and to the town of Bridgend (some 7 miles) which offers a comprehensive commercial, retail and leisure amenities.
