Glyncorrwg ponds are set amidst the 9,000 acres of the Afan Forest Park. The Glyncorrwg Ponds and the surrounding countryside make a great day out for the whole family.
Mountain biking, trout fishing, coarse fishing, and canoeing are our most popular sports, plus miles of old flat railway lines and steep mountain slopes providing days worth of cycling and walking.
Glyncorrwg was once an important coal mining centre, typical of the South Wales valleys. But when the closure of the pits came in 1970 everything changed. Mines buildings were cleared away, factories closed, and people left to find new jobs.

In 2003 created three of the worlds greatest mountain bike trails and the UK’s number one mountain bike centre..
