Heol-Y-Cyw is a little village located near Pencoed, in the community of Coychurch Higher, 6 miles from Bridgend, with close access to junction 35 of the M4. 

Heol-Y-Cyw is set in a rural destination with plenty of green fields and sprawling commons. The village hosts a post office, local pub The Plough and Heol Y Cyw social and working mans club, as well as Heol Y Cyw RFC which is a feeder club for the Cardiff Blues. The RFC was officially formed in 1906, with the British Lion Allan Bateman as a notable former player for the club. 

Bryngarw Country Park is nearby with woodlands and wildlife and lots of grassland for family games. The adventure playground is always a hit with the little ones, while the formal gardens with its ornamental bridges and wildflower meadows offers a more relaxed walk. Dogs are welcome too so its a perfect location to wear out the entire family. 

A regular bus service, No 65, runs from Bridgend Bus to Talbot Green,  via Wildmill, Parc Derwen, The Pines, Bryncoch and Bryncethin, and runs on to Pencoed, Bryncae and Llanharan. The service runs Monday to Saturday (excluding Bank Holidays).
