Hustle and bustle, engines revving and horns blaring - there’s none of that nonsense here. Although we did hear about a tailback at a kissing gate once.
The nice thing about the Valleys is there is so much of them. So you can cycle on the Taff Trail. You can walk on the Ridgeways. Relax by the rivers. Or paraglide off the cliffs. However you like to escape the stress of modern life you can probably do it here.
And we are only 10 minutes away from a motorway!
