Home Areas Rhoose

Home of the incredibly busy Cardiff Airport, Rhoose was originally an RAF town whose land was requisitioned by the Air Ministry at the start of World War II. After the war ended the land was sold for commercial use and the surrounding area started to fill up with residents who would commute out to work.

In the early 70’s Rhoose became designated as a Conservation Area in recognition of the special architectural and historic interest found within the village. These include two Grade 2 listed buildings, three historic farmsteads, two thatched buildings and the old water pump.

To the south lies Rhoose Point, the most southerly part of Wales, an area that much like its surreoundings has been disignated as a conservation area. It is home to scenic lakes, grassland areas and some very dramatic cliffs.
