Cwm Calon

One of the key features of the Heritage Collection is bringing the very best of time honoured traditions back to life to enhance modern living - which makes it the perfect match for Cwm Calon. Just like your Heritage Collection home, this former Penallta Colliery site has been perfectly planned to cater for your every need, adding those all important finishing touches, from a brand new road link to a new Welsh speaking primary school.

Set in a unique location, directly opposite Parc Penallta Country Park, you’ll enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities for all the family right on your doorstep, with the wilds of South Wales and the Brecon Beacons also within easy reach. Located in Ystrad Mynach, Cwm Calon is ideally situated near to the A470, linking the development with Pontypridd, Cardiff and cities further afield.

Recently named one of the top shopping destinations in the UK, Cardiff is only 15 miles from the Cwm Calon development. Shops in the city range from quaint independent outlets in Victorian arcades to top designer brands, and with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, a day of shopping in Cardiff can become a day to remember.


Cwm Calon is spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing that all-important school for younger members of the family. Ystrad Mynach Infant and Junior Schools and Tir-y-Berth Infants are nearby, as is Ysgol Penalltau Primary. A school with high standards of teaching and learning, Ysgol Penalltau prides itself on its happy and friendly reputation in the community. Older students are served by Lewis Girls School, Lewis Boys School, Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni and Blackwood Comprehensive School. A little over two miles from the Cwm Calon development, Blackwood is a highly successful school that offers a first class education to its students.

Transport Links

Situated in the Welsh county of Caerphilly, the Cwm Calon development is perfectly situated for modern living. The area is full of rural charm, but excellent transport links make it easy to reach the rest of the UK. A number of main roads are easily accessible from the village and the bustling city of Cardiff is only 30 minutes by car. Rail links are also good. Residents have a choice between catching trains at Ystrad Mynach or Hengoed, the latter of which has a direct link to the Welsh capital. In addition to a well-run local bus service, Cwm Calon also benefits from being within 25 miles of Cardiff International Airport..
