The property

This delightful detached Glyncorrwg cottage lies next to a river in the heart of this traditional village, with spectacular mountains all around, and has been sympathetically restored by the owners.

The comfortable sitting room is a cosy retreat after wonderful walks, cycle rides or horse rides along the numerous paths right from the doorstep.

This Glyncorrwg cottage, with two comfy bedrooms and deceptively spacious living accommodation, is perfectly located to enjoy the famous Glyncorrwg Mountain Bike Centre, which attracts cyclists and walkers from all over the world, and is the trailhead for Whites Level and Skyline mountain biking trails.

There is coarse and fly fishing in the area, while further afield from this Glyncorrwg cottage are the Brecon Beacons, beaches or Port Talbot and Portcawl, or designer-outlet shopping at Bridgend.

About the location


Swansea 20 miles; Pontypridd 21 miles; Cardiff 34 miles.

Glyncorrwg, in the Afan Forest Park, is a traditional Welsh village steeped in mining history, and where you will meet friendly villagers in the shop or the pub always happy to chat about their memories of the vibrant mining era. The famous Glyncorrwg Mountain Bike Centre attracts cyclists and walkers from all over the world and is the trailhead for Whites Level and Skyline mountain biking trails. There are also coarse and fly fishing lakes nearby for the fisherman in your party. A little further afield you can explore the Garw Valley or the Brecon Beacons on foot, bicycle, horse or in the car to enjoy spectacular scenery and the opportunity to watch rare breeds of hunting birds at extremely close quarters.
