Glamorganshire, or Glamorgan as it is more commonly known, is one of the thirteen historic counties of Wales and a former administrative county of Wales. This incredible county of offers fantastic value for money if you are looking into buying a home here.
Located in southern Wales, two cities are within the county’s boundary. Cardiff and Swansea provide a busier environment for younger people and the many students who attend their universities.

For those looking for a lifestyle that is relaxing and ideal for bringing up children, Glamorganshire is an enticing possibility to beat a retreat to. Many people have lived in the region, in fact, Glamorganshire’s terrain has been inhabited by humankind for over 200,000 years.
It has also endured a tumultuous past and was at the centre of great conflict between Norman lords and Welsh princes for many years. Glamorganshire was once the most populous and industrialised county in Wales.
Named the “crucible of the Industrial Revolution”, it contained the world centres of three metallurgical industries and rich resources of coal. Like the north of the UK, coal mining and the metal industries have all but disappeared in the county and other industries have taken their place.
Professional, scientific, and technical sectors, followed by construction, retail and tourism dominate the local economy now, improving the region’s economic prospects.
Glamorganshire comprises three distinct regions: the industrial valleys, the agricultural vale and the scenic Gower Peninsula. The area benefits from good road, sea, rail, and air links and is well-placed in the region for employment and business development.
Packed with plenty of rural and coastal locations and the advantage of a city lifestyle should you choose it, the county of Glamorganshire will certainly appeal to many.

It is important to note that Welsh is a compulsory subject in all of Wales’s state schools for pupils aged 5–16 years old. There are plenty of schools for all ages.
Additionally, as many as eight universities are available for post 18 education. There are several ways to enrol your child in a Welsh state school, but the best place to start gathering information is via the Welsh Government’s website.
For parents who want to send their children to a private school, Glamorganshire has some great choices. To find out more information about independent schools visit schoolsearch.co.uk
When it comes to higher education, Cardiff University is a hard one to beat.
Former students, academics and alumni of the university have included three heads of state, several government ministers, sportsmen and women and two Nobel Prize winners. Not a bad track record.
As an alternative to Cardiff, Swansea, the third largest university in Wales in terms of the number of students is another possibility.
Swansea University offers about 450 undergraduate courses, 280 postgraduate taught and 150 postgraduate research courses to 20,375 undergraduate and postgraduate students

Working in Glamorganshire
After falling under English rule in the 16th century, Glamorgan’s natural resources became an important part of the Industrial Revolution. Glamorgan was the most populous and industrialised county in Wales and was once called the “crucible of the Industrial Revolution”, as it held the world centres of three metallurgical industries and its rich resources of coal.
Nowadays, finding a decent job is particularly challenging throughout Wales. Compared to more prosperous areas of England, Wales has, unfortunately, struggled with its economy.
This is partly due to the small size of towns and cities in Wales compared to regions within the UK and the demise of the coal industry. However, there is work to be found if you have the skills and experience in the region’s main sectors.
Today, Glamorganshire’s economy relies more on the ‘Professional, Scientific, and Technical sectors, followed by the ‘Construction’ and ‘Retail’ sectors.
Agriculture features highly across the region. Farming is dominated by beef, sheep, and the dairy sector, with the arable sector accounting for 10% of agricultural output.
Many people living in Wales have developed small start-up businesses to make money.
There are as many as 4000 micro businesses in the county providing work to hundreds of employees.
In 2021, the highest employment sector was in the Human Health and Social Work sectors, giving jobs to 20% of Glamorgan’s population.
Many areas of Wales attract large numbers of tourists and Glamorganshire has its fair share of visitors. Work in and around the tourism industry is often seasonal but nonetheless important to the county’s economy.
Jobs in Glamorganshire may be harder to find but with time and patience, there are some great opportunities available.
Everyone has a vision of their dream home. Be it large or small old or a new build, it is a very personal choice.
There is a huge variety of homes and locations covering all types of wish lists in Glamorganshire.
Old villages provide some stunning stone and thatched properties, a haven of tranquillity many seek where homes can be bought for as little as £70,000.
In Mid Glamorgan in a medium-sized town such as Caerphilly, you can pick up a three-bedroom terraced home for a mere £90,000.
Some of the most desirable homes are within walking distance of the coast. Penclawdd is a small village perched on a hill overlooking the sea. It offers panoramic views of the Loughor estuary and surrounding Gower countryside, while the main part of the village stretches along the edge of the estuary.
The most you will pay for a family-sized home in Penclawdd is £450,000. Not bad for a seafront property.
Alternatively, you may prefer a townhouse or modern apartment in Cardiff or Swansea.
You will pay an average of £286,349 for a property in Cardiff and even less in Swansea which has an average price of £213,973.
There is absolutely no doubt that with the number of homes for sale combined with prices that come in well under the UK average, you will find your forever home in Glamorgan and have cash left over.
