Why Radyr


THINKING OF MOVING TO RADYR?

At Thomas H Wood we’ve stretched our roots out into Radyr with a second office. Having already settled in Whitchurch, we know why you should move to Whitchurch. Now that we’re Radyr estate agents, and with so many great houses for sale in Radyr, we thought we’d give you just as many reasons to move to this lovely suburb of Cardiff.

Properties

Properties in Radyr are perfect for both young families and people looking for a larger home.

There are plenty of Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian properties that spread out and around the village itself. If you’re looking for something a bit more modern, you’ll find executive style properties on the private Parc Radur development and a mix of apartments, two bedroom properties, townhouses and larger homes on the Radyr Sidings development. Smaller homes for first-time buyers are more available in Radyr Sidings and Radyr Gardens, an attractive modern development on an elevated site in the Morganstown area.

We have a great selection of properties for sale, no matter what you’re looking for!

Getting around

Although a suburb, there’s still plenty of access to transport. The local railway station and regular bus service mean that you’re only minutes from Cardiff city centre. Both the M4 and A470 are nearby, giving you easy access for getting further afield.

Schools

The Church Rooms in Park Road, once a primary school, now house Park Road Nursery; a private pre-school Nursery, and Cylch Meithrin; a Welsh Nursery. Primary schools include Bryn Deri, which also has a Nursery, and Radyr Primary School on Park Road. Radyr Comprehensive School is also right in the heart of the village.

Village life

As with all of Cardiff’s suburbs, Radyr has a strong sense of community. Everything you could need is on your doorstep, or at the very least a short walk away.

There’s a local Library on Park Road and the main shops are on Station Road. These include a bank, post office, convenience store, restaurant, sandwich shop, opticians, pharmacy, barbers, and now Thomas H Wood. Pugh’s Garden Village also has a lot to offer with its farm shop, café and concessions, with the Ty Nant pub opposite for a relaxing drink or bite to eat.

Radyr is served by Christ Church, Radyr Methodist Church, Radyr Baptist Church and St John the Baptist parish church; nearly 800 years old, it underwent a Victorian restoration in the 19th century.

Outdoor living

If you fancy a bit of fresh air, the Taff Trail cycle path passes via Radyr Weir. Radyr Woods is a Site of Nature Conservation Importance and Hermit Woods is also a Local Nature Reserve. There are plenty of picturesque walks and you can even see the remains of Iron Age settlements. Castell Coch, the fairy-tale castle, overlooks Radyr and is a short walk away.

For the sportier amongst you, there’s Radyr Golf Club, Lawn Tennis Club, Cricket Club and the Riverside Football Ground is home to the Cardiff Corinthians Football Club, known locally as the “Corries”.
