New Homes in Caerphilly

A historic town close to the vibrant Welsh capital

Home to the one of the biggest castles in the UK, Caerphilly is a town steeped in history. Located just to the north of Cardiff, it’s a great place to live close to the Welsh countryside as well as city amenities and family-friendly attractions. With so much to see and do on its doorstep, it’s no wonder that new homes in Caerphilly are popular with house buyers right across the generations.

Caerphilly through the ages

Caerphilly is an important historical town, with a Roman fort built around 75 AD and likely occupied until the 2nd century. When the Normans invaded Wales, some areas of Caerphilly stayed under Welsh control and by the mid 12th century, the town and wider area was governed by Ifor Bach. By the middle of the 13th century, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd was recognised as the Prince of Wales, while the construction of Caerphilly Castle began in 1268 as a way to stop the prince from encroaching on the town, and is the largest castle in Wales.

During a siege of the castle, the town was burned and later rebuilt. Caerphilly was quite small through the Middle Ages and had to endure several more attacks, including one led by Owain Glyndwr in the 15th century. Caerphilly grew as a town after the introduction of a market in the 18th century, and became more prosperous during the industrial revolution and after the opening of the railway lines.

The Big Cheese is an annual highlight, with not only cheese stalls but a funfair, a cheese ‘race’ and fireworks in the evening. Megaday is a family-friendly pop festival held each year in aid of the Velindre Cancer Centre. Caerphilly Castle is the main attraction in the town, while Y Galeri displays work by local artists.
