Cwmfelinfach is a small village located in the Sirhowy valley of south Wales, United Kingdom. It is part of the district of Caerphilly. Located north of Wattsville and about 5 miles north of the nearest town Risca and south of Blackwood.

Cwmfelinfach was home to a coal mining community during the early to mid twentieth century. The colliery, known as "Nine Mile Point", opened about 1905 and closed in 1964.

Cwmfelinfach can be translated as "little mill valley".

The village was a small hamlet until the late 19th century � therefore the majority of housing is traditional terraced from early 20th century. A map of 1885 showns the Melin (mill) and the Welsh Calvanistic Methodist chapel Babel Chapel. The grave of Islwyn the poet can be found here.

To the east the valley is bordered by the hills of Pen-y-Trwyn (1,028 ft / 313 m). To the west is Mynydd y Grug (1,132 ft / 345 m).
