Our strong sense of community makes Cwm Taf Morgannwg a welcoming place to call home. Whether you are resettling as a family or alone, we are ideally situated between Wales’ capital city Cardiff to the south, the coastal town of Porthcawl to the west, and the stunning scenery in the Brecon Beacons National Park to the north.
Living here, you get to explore the breathtaking beauty of the mountains, waterfalls and woodlands found in Brecon Beacons National Park, which contains some of the finest walking country in Europe. You’ll uncover the treasures of Cyfarthfa Castle Museum and Art Gallery, the Cynon Valley Museum Trust, and the Pontypridd Museum. Lose yourself in a tranquil stroll along the beaches of Ogmore-by-Sea and Dunraven Bay. Take a journey through time aboard a vintage steam train on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Or brave the trails and jumps of BikePark Wales, a must-visit spot for mountain bike enthusiasts.
You can also explore other parts of Wales. Our central location makes us the perfect starting point!
