White Hart, Llangybi
The White Hart village inn is a family pub brimming with character. The traditional stone building dates from the 16th century and retains many of its period features (large fireplaces and even a priests hole!). The pub has quite an interesting association with some famous historical names; learn more about them when you visit.

They welcome all walks of life here and pride themselves on their friendly, family like team. They’d love to see and look after you for anything, from a quick coffee, to full day wedding package.
Situated near Llandegfedd reservoir in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the pub itself is some two hundred years old and as one of the first buildings in Coed-Y-Paen village.
The Decoy Bunker
This Decoy Bunker was part of the Ministry of Defence’s strategy of deception against German bombers in World War II. Two men would take alternate watches and, when air raids threatened, go out into the neighbouring field and light fires designed to make the Luftwaffe think that they had hit the nearby Glascoed munitions factory.
Rescued from a mound of brambles and historical obscurity it now sleeps 3 with a fully-equipped kitchen and en suite bathroom.
Sit on the grass above the bunker and watching the sun set over the valley. With the nearest other building over 500m away, there’s barely any light pollution, so the night skies are unspoilt, fantastic and completely bomber free.
