Nant Y Fedwen Fawr is located in a small village five miles away from Glynneath. It is 17 miles from Merthyr Tydfil, 13 from Aberdare and 24 from Swansea.
Glynneath is sometimes known as Waterfall Country as there are a series of dramatic and quite beautiful waterfalls in the surrounding countryside. They provide an ideal venue or location for canoeists, gorge walkers and hikers who flock to the Neath Valley in their hundreds. Tourism is certainly the new industry of Glynneath and the surrounding area.
There are also football and rugby clubs close by as well as youth clubs. Apart from sports there are other activities available; if you like shopping then both Cardiff city centre and Swansea are the places to visit (about 50 minutes by car) as they have a large range of shops to suit all. Other activities easily accessible are cycling, horse riding, fishing, golf, hill walks, bowling and the cinema.
Places to visit nearby include Aberdulais Falls, Wales Ape & Monkey Sanctuary, Garwnant Forest, Swansea Bay which has various sporting activities, and not forgetting the famous ‘Joes’ ice cream parlour. There is also Dare Valley Country Park located in Aberdare where you could scale new heights with the climbing wall, take your bike and cycle the many miles of trails or why not try out the fantastic new Combat Zone live laser experience along with other outdoor activities including camping.
