Coffee House, Bar & Lodge, Pontneddfechan, Neath

Sgwd Gwladys is located at the Heart of Waterfall Country in Pontneddfechan and offers a Coffee Shop, Bar, Restaurant and Accommodation in tranquil and beautiful surroundings.

Sgwd Gwladys’ name was taken from the nearby waterfall located on the Elidir Trail which sits on the River Pyrddin.

The waterfall’s name come from the Welsh Princess Gwladys,  and Sgwd Gwladys is the Welsh translation for ‘Lady Falls’.

A former Tourist Information Centre, this beautiful stone building has been restored and brought back to life with an amazing transformation by two local businessmen. The space has been created to allow guests and visitors to relax and enjoy, whether it be for a fresh Coaltown Coffee, a spot of Lunch or a well deserved Evening Meal, Sgwd Gwladys has it all!

Internally the rustic, original décor gives the modern and sophisticated feel creating a welcoming ambience. Whilst the outdoor area offers the chance to take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy the fresh air.

The upstairs area has been designed to provide 4 en-suite rooms to allow visitors to complete their experience in Waterfall Country and stay in luxury Accommodation

Excellent facilities with very attentive staff. Well worth a visit just for the coffee. This is going to be one of the most popular bar / bistro in South Wales.   S. Reilly

Awesome coffee shop/bar.   It has such lovely staff and a super friendly atmosphere.  The coffee is very, very good. It’s real coffee made properly.  This is far better than any coffee shop I’ve been to in Wales.  I almost don’t want to leave the review because I would rather keep it a secret but a place this good won’t stay secret for long.
