The Rhondda Cynon Taf region

The region of South Wales includes the Capital city of Cardiff as well as the Brecon Beacons National Park which contains Pen y Fan,the highest mountain south of Snowdonia.Also central for the Swansea valley and the Gower Peninsular.The region is generally considered to include the historic counties of Glamorgan,Monmouthshire and sometimes extending westwards to include Carmarthenshire and Pembrokshire.Once a very rural area of great natural beauty,noted for its river valleys and ancient forest,the area is lauded by romantic poets such as Wordsworth as well as poets in the Welsh language and of course the famous Dylan Thomas.Despite the intense industrialisation of the coal mining valleys,many remain distinctly beautiful and unspoilt and have been designated Sites of Special Scientific interest .In addition to this many have reverted to wilderness,some provided with cycle tracks and other outdoor amenities.

The language of the majority of people is English but there are many who also speak Welsh.The local slang,dialect and phrases of the South Wales valleys is referred to as 'Wenglish' and are often used with comic effect.The dialect is found also in such coastal towns as Barry ,as featured in the BBC hit comedy series Gavin and Stacey.The traditional pastimes include rugby and music and music ranges from the traditional male voice choirs to the South Wales band scene of such bands as The Manic Street Preachers.


Cefn Rhigos is a hamlet in the village of Rhigos and nestles at the north most end of the Cynon valley on the edge of the Brecon Beacons with outstanding views of the Beacons range and is steeped in local history with the last pit in Wales ,Tower colliery being only a short few miles away.The vale of Neath gliding club operates from a grass airfield close to the village. The name Rhigos is an adaptation of the Welsh y Rugos meaning 'The Heath'.Originally farmland the village developed in the industrial revolution through the mineral industry.There is one shop in the village and one pub called the New Inn which serves good wholesome food in the bar as well as having a popular restaurant.There is also the local rugby club .Rhigos was birth place of local Welsh rugby legend David Morris who played in the 1970,s. Craig y Llyn is a mountain situated in Rhigos it is the highest point in the traditional county of Glamorgan and the highest in the South Wales valleys.It is commonly known as the Rhigos mountain. Craig y Llyn has yielded an important hoard of Bronze Age artifacts.Other areas include Afon Mellte,Glynneath and Pontneddfechan.Five miles away is Glynneath golf club and nearby courses include Aberdare golf club,Mountain Ash golf club and Merthyr golf club.The nearest airports are Swansea and Cardiff.

There are many activities available in the surrounding area and this is an ideal location for an outdoor type of holiday .From beautiful walks, nearby waterfalls,horse riding,fishing and cycling.Take a trip to Swansea market where you will find all the local fish such as mackerel and cockles as well as home made cakes and welshcakes.Walk up the famous Pen y fan and admire the stunning panoramic views from the top or along one of the stunning beaches that are only a 45 minute drive away.On a chilly winter day you could always take a visit to the Penderyn whisky Distillery for a warming drink .A superb location to discover all Wales has to offer.
