Pen-y-cae-mawr is small hamlet above the Wentwood Forest in Monmouthshire, Wales. It lies about 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Llantrisant.

There are two farms - Cas-Troggy Farm and Penyrheol Farm. There is also a Methodist chapel on the main road. The chapel recently celebrated its 121st anniversary. Services are held on the second and fourth Sunday of the month at 3.00pm.[1]

There are remains of a Baptist Chapel, shown on old maps as "Pen Y Well Chapel". Gravestones date back to the 18th century, and it also once had a yew tree, now destroyed.[2]
