Things To Do

What to do in the area

Whether you are a mountain biker, a hiker or a family looking for adventure, Glamorgan house is the perfect place for you to base from.

Hiking – There is a wide range of paths to choose from in the immediate area. There are very long treks and nice short walks. Some paths are on very low inclines and are tarmacked and then there are gravel paths leading right up to the tops of the surrounding mountains offering stunning views of the Afan Valleys. Click Here for further information and maps of the local area.

Fishing – There are three fine ponds just up the road from us that stock rainbow trout and offer course fishing. Click Here for further details for Glyncorrwg Ponds.

Mountain Biking – There are several tracks in the area that offer bike tracks for every level of experience. Click Here for further details.

Road Cycling – With spectacular views around every corner, the Afan valley roads are fast becoming a favourite spot for road cyclists. There are quite a few events that take place through the year. Click Here for details of the Bwlch Afan Valley cycle route or Click Here to view details of the Five Valleys.
