The local area guide to living in Treharris

Treharris is a small yet charming town to the south of Breacon Beacons National Park in Wales and around 17 miles north of Cardiff. It’s nestled in the Taff Bargoed Valley, and within an easy commute to Cardiff of about half an hour.

Once mining towns, Treharris and neighbouring Trewlis’ coal mines are now more commonly used for climbing. It’s a popular local sport and one that has its own dedicated adventure centre in Merthyr Tydfil, just 10 miles from Treharris.

Information about the local residents

In the last count in 2011, Treharris’ population was cited at 6,356 people. Local residents are primarily Welsh, with the largest age groups being 35-54, and then 65 and over. It’s common to live in a 3-bed house, bungalow or terraced housing and people’s homes are usually owned with a mortgage, though some are owned outright.

A large part of the population is working full time, and a similar amount are retired. Those working are often within the wholesale and retail trade, automotive repairs, healthcare and social work, or manufacturing professions. When it comes to transport, the majority of Treharris’ households own a car or van and use it as their primary method of commuting to-and-from work.

Nearby schools

There are plenty of options in and around Treharris when it comes to good schools. Some of the highest rated state-run primaries include Ysgol Gymraeg Rhyd-Y-Grug in nearby Merthyr Vale and Ysgol Gymraeg Abercynon in Abercynon. Both schools are only about 10 minutes from Treharris.

Though Treharris doesn’t have its own secondary school, quality secondary state-schools are in plentiful supply in neighbouring areas. Ysgol Gyfun Cwn Rhymni, Cardinal Newman Roman Catholic School, and Ysgol Gyfun Cymer Rhondda are all within a 12-20-minute drive from Treharris.

Independent schools are in shorter supply to Treharris, with most options in central Cardiff and Newport. Craig Y Parc School in Pentyrch and The Hollies in Gilfach Goch are two closer-to-home options for Treharris-based students.

Getting around

Treharris might not have its own train station, but Quakers Yard is only 2 minutes away and Abercynon and Merthyr stations are 9 and 17 minutes away respectively. Arriva Trains run services across the country from each of these stations, and you can easily get to Cardiff Central from Quakers Yard in about 45 minutes.

Buses are an option too. Harris, Doug James and Stagecoach Wales run regular local routes to all the nearby towns including neighbouring Trelewis, Pontypridd and Dowlais Top. The Stagecoach service also stops at Edwardsville School, a primary school just minutes to the west of Treharris

If you’d rather drive, and most of the locals do, the A470 runs all the way from Llanidloes, vertically past Treharris and on to Pontypridd and Cardiff. In terms of airports, Cardiff is 27 miles from Treharris and takes roughly 42 minutes to reach. Bristol is also another option, though it’s considerably further at around 59 miles away.

Local shops

Though Treharris may be small, it has everything you could need in terms of essentials. You’ll find banks, bakers and butchers and chemists, alongside tattoos, takeaways, sports and home stores.

For shopping on a larger scale, Cardiff is only about half an hour away. Its three shopping centres and city centre has a wealth of well-known high street shops, department stores and plenty of restaurants.

If culture is more your thing, Llancaiach Fawr Manor is local to Treharris. It’s a 16th century Tudor house that’s been carefully restored to its former glory. Once you’ve wandered around the house and gardens, you can stop for tea, or a glass of wine and meal in the restaurant. With staff authentically dressed in costume, it’s like stepping back in time!
