Pyle ( _cy. Y Pîl) is a village in Bridgend county borough, south Wales. Pyle railway station is on the London - South Wales main line.

This large village is served by the A48 road, and lies less than one mile from Junction 37 of the M4 motorway, and is therefore only a half-hour journey from the capital city of Wales, Cardiff; in fact it lies approximately equidistant between the capital (Cardiff) and the second city (Swansea).

The nearest town is the seaside resort of Porthcawl. Pyle contains a medieval parish church whose walls are said to contain stones from the ancient borough of Kenfig which was abandoned after being buried in sandstorms.

Pyle was made a community in 2002, when the Cynffig community was split into two parts (the other being Cornelly), following a recommendation of the Local Government Boundary Commission for Wales.
