Thread: Moving from Cardiff To Tumpy Land, any of you done it ?

  1. #1

    Moving from Cardiff To Tumpy Land, any of you done it ?

    I'm thinking of selling up and moving on, not that keen on going over the mounting but financially it is appealing, it would be my last move.

    I've lived all over Cardiff, (Riverside, Adamsdown, Ely, Canton, Cathays, Pontcanna, Roath, Llanedeyrn), tore the arse out it really, so we decided to move to RCT, best move we ever made. Like you said property is more affordable, the natives are friendly and Cardiff's only a short journey away, win, win.

    Done it the other way around.
    Will probably go back to Caerphilly one day.
    Great place 👍

    We don't want you illiterate, uncouth, poor types in Caerphilly. Go and live somewhere else

    I think I'd go nuts. I'd miss city life and all it brings unless you're happy to pay 30 for a taxi or get the last train home butt

    Many have, and were never heard of again, having fallen over the edge.

    City life? Its hardly New York.

    The valleys etc are basically just suburbs of Cardiff nowadays. Its hardly like moving to the moon.

    Yes or a big pile of something. eg Twmp of Stones.

    I thought a twmp was a "hump" rather than a hill - isn't that a bryn?

    I've never heard of Tumpty land. Sounds a stupid as calling Caroline street Chippy lane

    As a born and bred Cardiffian, who moved to Caerphilly about four years ago, I agree. Caerphilly is more or less a Cardiff overspill. Love it here mind, it's got everything you need. Will probably stay for good.

    No, but go for it if you think the sums are right. Lots more snow days too

    I've thought of it tbh, as you seem to get a lot more bang for your buck in terms of houses, and living in Thornhill, it's sometimes more convenient to use the banks etc in Caerphilly than to go to town.
    Shops are crap mind.

    One reason not to - the A470!

    Re: Moving from Cardiff To Tumpy Land, any of you done it ?

    The thought of moving away from the City has never entered my head. Moving up the sticks no way man.

    This. If you leave Cardiff but have to travel in to work, probably the most important factor for me would be the proximity to a train station. I travel out of Cardiff up the A470 and the M4 every morning and the queues coming in are usually horrendous. That being said I do like Caerphilly and if I were to have to move for financial reasons, that would probably be where I would go.

    I've been travelling up and down the A470 5 days a week for 13 years and currently have the luxury of Heath high and low level 12 mins walk away, Caerphilly is looking favourable at the moment or I might just bottle it and stick.

    Re: Moving from Cardiff To Tumpy Land, any of you done it ?

    I lived in Caerphilly for 5years having lived and worked in Cardiff all my life.
    I just found it a pain logistically. Houses were much cheaper but After a while I felt that the houses in Cardiff were increasing in value faster than Caerphilly and if I didn't move back to the Big City when we did we may never afford to move back to a similar size property and it would have been a case of down sizing to mov back.

    or so you may think.....With new developments in Wenvoe and a huge estate on the site of the old HTV studios, the traffic will be horendous. Cardiff seems to want to agree on all these new builds, including the huge development set for the outskirts of Creigiau, but little or new news on any improvement to the public transport infrastructure, we seem to lack behind all other major cities I visit. Cardiff is already gridlocked with traffic at peak times and needs to do something with the public transport, or lack of, in advance of or at least inconjunction with new development.

    All well 'n good if you are in the vicinity of the station, not so good if you were in highlight park. PT is superb where you are but diabolical in more rural areas of South Wales.

    The "tumpy" is the mountain on the east side of the valley in Mountain Ash or should I say that was its name when I grew up there in the 50's. Never heard of the expression Tumpy Land.

    and you got a castle, if it all kicks off

    Re: Moving from Cardiff To Tumpy Land, any of you done it ?

    Two points:

    1. I used to attend Lansbury Park junior school back in the day. At the end of the yard there was a long bumpy stretch of grass with loads of mini hills. This was commonly referred to as the tumps. It made for an epic game of bulldog and is probably why half of Caerphilly use a stick to walk.

    2. Caerphilly is a great place to live. I'd say it's on a par with Bridgend and Barry if you enjoy spotting ugly weird people. I'm pretty sure most of the strange people on here inhabit one of these three places.

    Re: Moving from Cardiff To Tumpy Land, any of you done it ?

    In fairness, bed towns such as Caerphilly and Pontypridd are just as good, if not better, than living in the outer suburbs of Cardiff.
    Speaking for Pontypridd:
    Nice houses/decent houses/any bl**dy houses come a 100k - 150k plus cheaper.
    Transport links.... a few stops on the train or a short drive by car/bus down the A470.
    A cracking park for families, including a new, large children's play area and the outdoor swimming complex.
    A large enough town for your needs (more facilities than you're likely to find in Radyr, Whitchurch, Tongwynlais and so on).
    Contrary to Urban myths, towns such as Ponty do have nice areas ........ and there are some spectacular walks/cycling into the nearby countryside.
    ... oh ... and Cardiff when you need it

    I went there as well and also remember them, although wouldn't have without you mentioning them. Good memory that.

    I remember misjudging one particular tump once and biting off part of my tongue. I'm still amazed to this day how much blood came out of one mouth. Probably why I still remember them.

    Happy days (apart from the tongue biting incident of course)
