Forest Tea Room

If you follow me on instagram, you have most likely seen me at a cute little cafe in the woods on a number of occasions.

This place is Forest Tea Room and is quite quickly becoming my favourite place to drink coffee on a Sunday.

You will find it in Tongwynlais, near Castell Coch. It is nestled in the woods, so keep your eyes peeled. It is the perfect stop off after a long walk or ride, they welcome pooches and bicycles and serve the most delicious coffee and cake. (The perks of the long journey there, means there is room made for stocking up..)

In the winter they have a big log fire burning and is an ideal spot for snuggling up before heading back home.

There are a number of ways to get there, last week we walked up Caerphilly mountain and all the way back to Cardiff, stopping midway for treats.

This week we cycled from the city centre up the Taff Trail, stopping off for bacon sandwiches and cake before heading back.

Also don't forget to say hello to the peacock, you may find him admiring himself in the mirror or eyeing up your cake, sounds a bit like my boyfriend actually...

So if you're looking for something fun to do on the weekend, I would highly recommend a trek around this area, its gorgeous and the perfect way to spend a morning.

You can find directions here:



  1. Forest Tea Room looks and sounds lovely. I've been meaning to walk the Taff Trail to Castell Coch for a while now so this is another reason to make sure I get around to it soon! Thanks for sharing.
