The South Wales region

The town of Pontardawe is situated on the Banks of the River Tawe seven miles from Swansea in the Swansea Valley, South Wales.

The valley in which this town lies is, like many other places in Wales, full of running streams, beautiful waterfalls, villages and green hills surrounded by four big hills (Alltwen, Craig Glyn Meirch, Llangiwc Rock and Caraig yr Abby) which shelter it.

The name Pontardawe actually means “Bridge on the River Tawe” in Welsh.


Tourism is a growth industry in and around the Pontardawe area, some of the old collieries and mines in the area have been turned into museums such as Cefn Coed Colliery Museum, and nearby Aberdulais Falls, a spectacular waterfall now owned by the National Trust, is the largest electricity generating water wheel in Europe.

The reopening of the Canal in this area together with the beautiful countryside provides a wealth of places to visit and a rambler’s paradise. The South Wales Miners Museum in the Afan Argoed Countryside Centre, Neath Abbey, Gnoll Country Park and Margam Country Park are a few of the popular local sites of interest for visitors. And then there are the hills, accessible by car, foot and bike and you can see the sea from Gellionen mountain.

Pontardawe itself now has a growing population of over 5,000. Celebrated for its contributions to the Arts, especially music, the town is home to the modern Pontardawe Arts Centre which hosts regular performances by both renowned National and International artists, an active film society, the Valley Folk Club and the Pontardawe Acoustic Music Club. This growing town is best known though for the Pontardawe Festival of World Music and Dance held every August since 1978. This year it is hosting a series of festivals in Spring, Summer and Autumn.

"home from home"

lovely ,clean and close to local shops, this is so lovely little house comfortable with all you needs. We all enjoyed this house and the garden has a nice area to sit in. not far to go into the city, local swimming is free for children at school age during the holidays, usually in afternoons. huge activity folder with lots to do, horse ridding in trebanos, chocolate factory, beaches if you get the weather. Great communication with the owners, they are really helpful and easy to talk with.
