Caerphilly, in Gwent, is located close to Cardiff and Newport in South Wales. It's near to the M4 and consequently has become popular as a commuter base for these two nearby cities. Caerphilly was historically in the county of Glamorgan.
Caerphilly, in South Wales, is best known for its eponymous cheese and for having the second largest castle in Britain, Caerphilly Castle. Windsor Castle may be the largest castle in the UK, but unlike Caerphilly Castle, it does not have the distinction of a leaning tower that rivals the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa for dramatic effect!
Caerphilly cheese, the town's most famous export, was under threat from a new EU rule about transporting unpasteurised milk a few years ago. Fortunately the industry has managed to survive and Caerphilly cheese continues to be made in the town, preserving a great tradition.
Caerphilly's picturesque location on the edge of the Brecon Beacons and its historic architecture may draw the tourists, but the town has become popular as a residential base for far more pragmatic reasons. Caerphilly's proximity to Newport and Cardiff - two of the largest conurbations in Wales - mean that it is ideal for commuting and gives access to a wide range of employment and leisure possibilities.
Caerphilly's growing population - currently standing at over 30,000 people - means that there is no shortage of useful services in the town - including van rental. Van hire in Caerphilly is available locally and there is a full range of rental vans available for hirers to choose from:
