Bwthyn Pen y Fan

Visited by Tripadvisor
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Merthyr Vale, Merthyr Tydfil, Southern Wales, Wales
Bwthyn Pen Y Fan has been given 4 stars by the Wales Tourist Board. In the heart of the valleys of Wales, just a few miles south of the Brecon Beacons.

It is a quaint stone terraced self catering cottage in a semi-rural setting. Refurbished in a traditional style for the era in which it

About the neighbourhood
The transformation of the Valleys from their industrial past to now, means that the landscape is richer and more beautiful with cleaner rivers for trout and salmon fishing.

Throughout the valley, in which Merthyr Tydfil lies, were three large ironworks, which exported iron worldwide in the early 1800's,
with many Coal mines being sunk in the late 1800/ early 1900's.

Diversification has taken place since and there are now many varied activities on offer, across a wide spectrum of the great outdoors.
For example:
Mountain Biking
Rock climbing (indoor and outdoors)
Hang gliding
