The Valleys region in South Wales has outstanding natural beauty – something for which Wales is known. What is unique about this region is its coal mining past which ended in the 1980s.
When it comes to fun places to visit in South Wales, the place you cannot miss in The Valleys is the Welsh Mining Experience.
Experience 1645 in the beautifully restored Llancaiach Fawr Manor House. The fire is roaring and the table is set.
Caerphilly Castle is the largest castle in Wales and the second largest in Britain behind Windsor.
Gellihaf House is an absolutely lovely boutique bed and breakfast that also does a fantastic home-made afternoon tea on the weekends.
I imagine it must be dramatic in winter and super colorful in Autumn along these roads. There are also loads of cute houses, gates and wider views for great photos.
