Come and see us

Whether you are a climber needing to refuel, a dog walker, cyclist, local to Taff Bargoed park or a family visiting the activity centre for the day, it’s definitely worth a visit to our cafe. We are a family and dog friendly cafe and muddy boots are most welcome.

Outdoor Play Area

For the younger children we now have an outdoor play area just for them! As the site used to be an old coal mine, our outdoor play area is mining themed. With a mining dressing up box, slides, pulleys, buckets and cargo nets there is plenty to keep them entertained. And the best bit, the play area is in the cafe garden so you can keep an eye on the kids whilst enjoying a coffee and a cake.

Rainbow Room

Our fantastic new purpose built kids climbing area is the perfect place for those little climbers to burn off steam. Small hand friendly climbing holds bright colours, low level climbing and crash mats make it the perfect place for little climbers to develop. Recommended for ages 2 – 6 yrs.

Adults may supervise up to 2 under children at a time in the rainbow room no experience is required but an induction will take place on your first visit.

Please make sure the supervising adult completes a Profile Registration Form and Rainbow Room Registration Form.


This project was made possible by the National Lottery Community Fund.
