The picturesque village of Ynysybwl is located four miles to the north of Pontypridd in the Welsh county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taff. It is a semi-rural place surrounded by farms, the Llanwonno forestry and positioned next to the powerful Clydach Stream. Although we have all the benefits of the remote countryside, we can travel to the heart of Cardiff in half an hour! The village boomed alongside the Lady Windsor Colliery in the late nineteenth century; hundreds of terraced houses were built for mining families.
