St. Nicholas (Welsh: Sain Nicolas) is a small village in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. It lies 2 miles west of the capital city, Cardiff and 7 miles from its city centre.

Amenities & History[edit]

The A48 road divides the village in half, with a parish church and primary school north of it and housing south of it. However there are no shops or pubs in the village, the nearest being in Bonvilston or Culverhouse Cross. The A4226 (Five Mile Lane) connects it to nearby Barry from the A48.

It is served by public transport by the First Cymru X2 service westbound to Bonvilston, Cowbridge, Bridgend and Porthcawl, and eastbound to Culverhouse Cross, Ely, Canton and Cardiff Central bus station.
