About The Area


Gallery not found.


Situated in the Tawe Valley, near to Swansea, in the quaint former mining town of Ystradgynlais, the River Tawe Holiday Apartment is nestled at the gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area which has now been awarded UNESCO Global Geopark Status.

It is surrounded by ancient woodland, moors, waterfalls, and unspoiled coast and seaside to explore.
Ystradgynlais has pavement cafes and high-end boutiques, a garden centre, butchers, newsagents, several hairdressers and much much more.  It is a town with the feel of a village.

In 2016 Ystradgynlais won a Silver Medal in the ‘Wales in Bloom’ competition and the village has many beautiful planters and hanging baskets.
