- So Merthyr Tydfil in October, nice place for a holiday?
Stay in Aberdare camp/caravan book a room here http://www.darevalleycountrypark.co.uk/index.php/accomodation
you can walk into town I can recommend some pubs/restaurants if you base yourself here, you can ride over to the bike park from Aberdare too if you wishPosted 4 years agomolgripsSubscriber
See the map, see the A465 running East-West, that’s the Heads of the Valleys Road. North of that is lovely Brecon Beacons beautiful countryside. South of that is.. not as nice 🙂
North is packed with nice towns and villages with more B&Bs than you can shake a stick at.
Every city and large town in the uk has rough areas and Merthyr is no worse.
Yeah I’d agree, it’s no worse than the rough areas of most big towns…. 🙂Posted 4 years agorusty90Member
I went out with a Merthyr girl once and she took me there to meet her folks, followed by a trip to the local Working Men’s club. It was like a scene from a western, where the stranger walks into a busy saloon and everything suddenly stops, leaving dead silence. I guess my lack of facial tatoos must have marked me out as different.Posted 4 years ago
Once she’d explained that I was her boyfriend and she’d *ing kill anybody who gave me any trouble, things were fine.
I can’t see it making it into a Thompson’s Holidays brochure though.
Oh look they have their own nurse in there 😈
Bit too past it for nightclubbing

+1 for Talybont on Usk. Good food and beer at the Star, the White Heart has a good collection of single malts. We either camp at Talybont Farm or stay at the Malthouse B&B (opposite the White Heart) – very good rates and a cracking breakfast (local produce and they collect their own honey), nice comfy lounge and wifi. Both are in the centre of the village.Posted 4 years ago
Alternatively, the YHA hostel near Brecon isn’t bad but it’s in the middle of nowhere.houndlegsMember
How about http://www.thebellcountrypub.co.uk ,in Glangrywney,halfway between Abergavenny and Crickhowell.I’d also second Talybont on Usk, all the outdoor activities you could want,the gap ride from the front door,walking galore,good pubs and not that far from Merthyr. Or pretty much any of the villages along the A40 from Abergavenny to Brecon, if you do a bit of digging round you’ll find cottages off the beaten track I’m sure.Posted 4 years ago
Or if you want to treat yourself http://www.penpont.com/page/welcome/
The whole area along the A40 is stunning, you can’t go far wrong at all there.
And here’s a day out for you http://www.museumwales.ac.uk/en/bigpit/
Oh and if you like industrial heritage,its worth a nosey round Merthyr,it was the biggest iron producer in the world(I think) at one time.
