The South Wales region
Wales' best kept tourism secret, the south Wales strip between the Coast and the Valleys.
Situated between Wales' largest two cities Cardiff to the east and Swansea to the west. We have the market town of Bridgend. The Heritage Coast and 28 miles of coastal scenery dramatic cliffs, golden family beaches legendary villages and ancient castles. The Ogmore valley to the north, and gateway to the welsh Valleys and Mountains with magnificent views reservoirs and lakes.
Situated in the medieval hill top village of Glynogwr with panoramic views overlooking the Ogwr Fach Valley, it is ideally located for visitors to experience numerous local outdoor activities or sample the excitement of the city of Cardiff.
Glynogwr was originally known as Llandyfodwg and was once part of the duchy of Lancaster estate. At the heart of the village is the church of St Tyfodwg named after the 6th century Welsh Saint.
Glynogwr Lodge, looks out over the Earls of Dunraven estates, Mynydd-y-Gaer (Wyndham-Quin families of Dunraven Castel). Mynydd-y-Gaer is said by some people to be the burial place of Uther, King Arthur, at the now ruined church of St.Peters-Super-Montem. (Read, David Nash Fords, Early British Kings) Even if you don’t find King Arthurs burial place, at least you will have a lovely walk.
Nearby is the village of Gilfach-Goch were the author Richard Llewellyn once lived. Who based his novel, How Green Was My Valley, on the Village, which was later made into a Hollywood film.
A mile walk from the lodge is the Lakeside farm park, with a trout fishing lake, small holding petting farm; children’s play area, and a café/ restaurant.
A mile to the west of the lodge is the village of Blackmill. The fortnightly sheep auction draws local farmers to eat local produce at Blackmill’s Junction Hotel were mine host is local award winning Chef John McCarran
A few miles walk to the north of Blackmill is the renowned Bwlch Mountain with magnificent panoramic views over the Rhonda and Ogmore Valley and over the Bristol Channel.

Thanks for the very nice accommodation comment. Unfortunately due to the very cold weather, well below -0. The Jacuzzi is switched off for safety reasons hot water will freeze quicker than cold on the floor creating ice! we would not want any one falling on frozen ice. The customer was told this. There were 2 dish washer tablets and washing liquid in the cupboard under the sink just ask if cant find. The cost was less than £10.00 Per person a night for a week booking. It is not pricey. Come and see for yourself. And enjoy South Wales. Thanks
