Forest Lodge Lane Development, Afan Valley

An upmarket and picturesque retreat in the Afan Valley.

Forest Lodge is a self build development site less than 2 miles from the M4 Motorway Junction 40, located in the picturesque Afan Valley, north of Port Talbot.

The Afan Valley is recognised more for its leisure and outdoor life today and belies its heavy industrial past. The valley is heavily forested with walks and world renowned cycle routes attracting thousands of visitors every year. The Alpine feel has encouraged many to construct their own dream home.

The site itself, whilst undulating, is interesting and reproduces this Alpine feel with trees and stunning views across and up the valley. It offers the "self builder" the chance to expand their minds and design a house of their dreams.

The houses built to date are all very different but nevertheless complimentary with the use of different woods, slates and stone as well as more traditional brick and render finish. Oak trees, beech hedges and ponds offer an upmarket rural experience.

The roads and drainage have been constructed and serviced plots of around 0.25 acre are now offered for sale.
