Ty Cariad is close to public transport and a short walk to town Centre.You’ll love Ty Cariad because of the cosiness and the location. There is plenty of room for a group of up to 5 people to have room to themselves without feeling cramped. We are close to BikePark Wales which is the UK's first full scale mountain bike park in the heart of the South Wales valleys, built by riders for riders. Great for groups, couples, families (with kids over 5). Only has stair access to upstairs.
