What an area has to offer plays a significant role in the state of the local property market. Buyers want to know what there is around them, and people want to live in an area where they can socialise and enjoy activities when they are not working. If you plan on selling your home, you need to be aware buyers consider these matters.
The decision in whether a buyer is interested in a property or not is about so much more than the size or condition of the property. This is why people buying or selling in Bridgend can take comfort and confidence from the great entertainment, shopping and dining options in town.
If you love movies, you will appreciate the cinema at the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Village. Streaming TV shows and films are becoming more popular, but a day out at the cinema remains a great way to spend some time. Whether you are on a date, looking for a rainy-day excursion with the kids, or you just fancy getting out of the house, the cinema offers a lot to residents.
Of course, some people want to experience the great outdoors, enjoy the fresh air and be active. If this sounds like your form of entertainment, make your way to Bryngarw Country Park. This is a 113-acre country park, which is less than five miles from the heart of Bridgend. The park plays host to a range of outdoor events, especially in summer, but there is something for everyone, all year round.

The Rhiw Centre is the leading shopping centre in the town, and it is the host venue for the local market. If you are looking for High Street chains and familiar shopping experiences, you will find it all here. There is also the Brackla Street shopping centre, which hosts larger stores and value retailers.
Anyone hankering after an open-air shopping experience in the town centre should head to Adare Street. Again, there are plenty of High Street chain stores on offer and plenty of places to grab something to eat or drink.
