the place...

depot rd is an exciting, new and unique space in the Afan Valley. Perfectly positioned to explore South Wales, described by 'Lonely Planet' as the 'best region' on Earth to visit in 2012. Why fly round the world looking for beauty and adventure when it's on your doorstep.


Manager, Ewan Shearer, came here several years ago to spend a weekend mountain biking in the world-famous Afan. Since then he has come back many times with friends and family and has now developed depot rd so that other people can share in his passion for the area. The Welsh landscape and the Welsh people's hospitality should be experienced by everyone.


Visiting Wales is about spending quality time and getting a proper break from the stresses of everyday life. Whether you're a big kid, a real kid or just still young at heart.


Easily accessed by car or public transport, there is a huge amount to experience. There's something for everyone to enjoy and we hope we have created the ideal destination.


The beauty of Wales is about being part of its landscape. Fly down the hill, fly a kite or paddle on deserted sandy beaches. Outdoor activities are extremely well supported by local government and Wales is full of people with a real passion for the outdoors. With new routes and pursuits being established constantly, every trip will be a new experience. One best shared with friends and family.


Mountain biking, cycling, walking, fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, coasteering, bird watching.... the list goes on. We wanted to create the perfect place at the end of a brilliant day for relaxing, eating and sharing. depot rd is.... inner space for outdoor people.


There's also Richard Burton, Dylan Thomas, Tom Jones, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins, Roald Dahl, Harry Secombe, Rob Brydon and (my favourite) Tommy Cooper, to name just a few of the local indoor heroes.
