Michaelston le Pit won the "Best Kept Village" award in 2011 and retains a vibrant community with Medieval church which is still in full use.

Despite its proximity to Cardiff (4.5m), the area retains a tranquil and secluded atmosphere and benefits from an extensive network of local footpaths connecting to Dinas Powys, Leckwith, Wenvoe and Penarth.

Cavity walls have been insulated and drainage is via a shared cesspit which is emptied periodically at a cost of c.£60 per annum.
