Cefn Hengoed is a small village in the centre of Caerphilly borough, within the historic boundaries of Glamorganshire. Bordering the larger village of Hengoed, Cefn Hengoed contains the local Derwendeg primary school. Derwendeg primary school has recently celebrated its 90th birthday.

Cefn Hengoed has a local public house called The Crosskeys which is situated facing the opening of Lansbury Avenue.

There is also a youth center in Cefn Hengoed where the young (and medium young) children can come together in fraternity, equality and liberty to relax without worrying about homework or school for exactly an hour and a half.

St Anne's Church was formerly located on Hengoed Road, but is now closed.

In 2011 there was speculation that Terrence Malick was going to film part of his upcoming movie The Tree of Life in the village. However, when Alan dropped his flip camera in the river whilst filming tadpoles, these plans were abandoned.
