Getting Here


By car:

From Cardiff and the East – M4:

  • M4 – Turn off at Junction 40
  • At the roundabout below take the third exit (effectively going underneath the stretch of motorway you’ve just left)

​From Swansea and South/West Wales – M4:
Take the first exit left as you approach the roundabout from Junction 40.
…and then continue as below:

  1. Immediately, take first exit (Left) at the next mini roundabout (Veering around quite a sharp bend in the road)
  2. You’re now passing through a residential area. Continue straight ahead, for approximately another mile.
  3. Reach a set of traffic lights. Carry on ahead, passing the Western Log Company on your right.
  4. Continue for approximately another mile and a half until passing Afan Argoed Country Park on the right.
  5. Pass through the villages of Cynonville and Dyffryn. Pass Bakers Joinery and DIY.
  6. Reach the village of Cymmer. Drive up the small hill until the road takes a sharp left turn. (The village swimming pool is directly in front of you)
  7. Carry on this road until you see the chemist on your right.
  8. Just after the chemist take a very sharp turn left, sign posted Glyncorrowg, down a steep hill.
  9. Continue down the hill and take a sharp right and then a sharp left at the bottom of the hill.
  10. At the bottom of the hill the Afandale is situated on the river just after the bridge.
