Cottage and Bunkhouse
Prices & Facilities - Please see text below.
The Cynon Valley Cottage and Bunkhouse, ‘The Centre’, is situated on the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The area is dominated by the hump-backed mountains of the Brecon Beacons and is close to the world famous waterfalls of the Neath, Mellte and Hepste rivers.
The recently refurbished, well-equipped and comfortable Centre is a typical Welsh cottage and barn converted into bunkhouse accommodation for up to twenty-nine people.
The Centre has been awarded a three star rating by the Welsh Tourist Board.
The accommodation is centrally heated and double glazed throughout. There are three bedrooms, sleeping eight, four and one, and a dormitory that sleeps sixteen; a lounge, with wood burning stove, and adjacent multi-purpose room with sink, microwave and ‘fridge; four showers, toilets and hand basins, and a drying room. The commercial kitchen is equipped with a large Calor gas cooker, refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven, toaster and a full range of catering equipment and eating utensils.
The Centre is suitable for all types of groups, from the structured school party busy with field studies, the ‘action packed’ activity group keen to develop their interests in outdoor pursuits and the more leisurely holiday party who wish to relax and enjoy the tourist attractions the area has to offer.
There are many opportunities for outdoor activities locally: rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, caving, hill walking, pony trekking, fishing, mountain biking, gorge and mine exploration are some of the more popular. The Taff Trail and Sarn Helen are both 7.5 miles away.
The area also has a rich industrial past providing many tourist attractions: restored steam railway, gunpowder works, coal mines and canals.
