Located in the village of Dinas Powys, less than five miles from Cardiff city centre, the stunning new development of three and four bedroom detached homes at The Woodlands is ideally located to enjoy village and city life.

At the gateway to the Vale of Glamorgan, yet within 10 minutes of Cardiff Bay and the historic seaside town of Penarth, Dinas Powys is ideal for commuting or enjoying the very best of the surrounding area.
