Afan Valley Cottage is on the outskirts of Blaengwynfi, the last village in Afan Valley before the mountain pass into the Rhondda. The cottage looks back down the narrow valley and nearby the open countryside in easily accessible. The Afan Forest mountain bike trail centre is just a couple of miles down the valley following the old railway line and the cottage has secure bike storage for eight bikes. The two larger bedrooms can be set up as large doubles of twin singles so the cottage caters for families as well as groups.

We found the cottage easily following directions. Slight hiccup in that neighbor was no longer the keyholder, but managed to contact owner for key safe number. It was clean, tidy and comfortable .Bike access was good and there was plenty of parking space.

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Cardiff: 75.0 km
Railway: Maesteg: 8.0 km
The quickest way when travelling west from Cardiff along the M4 is to leave the motorway at J36 and take the A4063 via Maesteg. Stick to the same road on the other side of Maesteg and continue through Careau and over the top to the hill at Cros-erw. You will reach a crossroads just outside Cymer. You will need to turn right (it’s almost a hairpin) and travel further up the valley on the A4061. After approximately two miles you will see a sign indicating a left turn to Blaengwynfi. Take this turning and follow the road into the village. Go past the Old Police House on the right and take the next turning on the left going up the hill. That is Beatrice Street – follow it to the end and the cottage is the last house on the right.
