The Roost has been created to provide the perfect base for lovers of the great outdoors. We’re in the heart of the Welsh Valleys, minutes from BikePark Wales (by bike or car), on the Taff Trail and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons plus Cardiff is just 45 minutes away.
Our four warm, cosy cabins sleep two adults and two children. They have comfy, big (4ft) bunk beds (spacious for 1, cosy for 2) and a ‘porch’ storage area where you can hang up bikes and stash your gear. Its glamping where we don’t mind a bit of mud. We’ve also got two campervan spaces with hook-ups (vans max 6m, no motorhomes or awnings due to space restrictions).
“This place is an amazing affordable option for people who love hiking or riding bikes. The accommodations are great and well thought out. Couldn’t recommend it more!”
There’s a well-equipped, shared, inside-outside kitchen where you can roll the walls up or down according to the weather. With the walls rolled up, the kitchen and dining area extends out on to a decked area with views over the hills, letting the outside in. There’s also a shared BBQ and fire pit.
The three shared shower rooms have lovely hot showers, loos that flush with rainwater and all the essentials.
The hiker and biker friendly site also has a drying room, bike wash, secure gated parking and Wi-Fi.
“The facilities there were excellent – bike storage in your cabin, drying room, great showers and a well appointed kitchen with essentials like milk, tea and coffee provided for you.”
The Roost sits above the village of Troedyrhiw which has a train station (connecting to Merthyr Tydfil, Barry Island, Bridgend and Cardiff) and local amenities.
“A little gem, nestled in a Welsh hillside. Brand new shared facilities and the kitchen!! Best camping kitchen ever.”
The Roost Merthyr Tydfil is a Visit Wales Quality Assured Glamping Site and has been awarded the Cyclists and Walkers welcome awards.
