Bryncoch is a suburb situated immediately north of Neath town centre.

Historically the village of Bryncoch was centred on Main Road and a few adjacent streets, but the village expanded considerably in the 1960s with the building of the Furzeland Drive and Elias Drive developments. The area is considered to be one of the most affluent parts of the county borough with beautiful countryside walks to Dyffryn Woods.
