Taff’s Well and Nantgarw Community Council represents the communities of Taff’s Well and Nantgarw.

Taff’s Well is known locally as the 'Gates to the Valleys’ it is located at the south easterly tip of Rhondda Cynon Taf. It is separated from Gwaelod Y Garth by the River Taff.

Taff's Well is distinguished because it contains the only thermal spring in Wales. The Thermal Spring is also the smallest in the world. The tepid water is thought to rise along a fault-line from the Carboniferous Limestone, in somewhat similar manner to the warm springs at Bristol and Bath. Various religious groups regard it as a spiritual site. The site is maintained by a local volunteer group. Information books about the Spring are available from the Library Hub for a £3.00 donation to the Friends of Taff’s Well Park and Thermal Spring.

The Garth Mountain overlooks the village and was the inspiration for the fictional "Ffynnon Garw", featured in the book and film The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain directed by Christopher Monger who was born in Taff’s Well.

The village of Nantgarw also lies on the River Taff. It is known for its porcelain, produced in between 1813-1814, and later between 1817-1820 and commemorated at the Nantgarw Chinaworks Museum.

Nantgarw is also said to be the home of the Nantgarw tradition of folk dancing, which is a style of Morris dancing from the south and valley regions of Wales.
