Cycling Holidays & Cottage Accommodation in Wales
Welcome to Cottage Holidays in Wales…..
The Taff Trail
The Taff Trail is an interesting concept in that there is more than one trail. It provides an opportunity not just for walkers but also for cyclists (a fairly rough surface for the most part). One of the most innovative design features of the Taff Trail is that there are many circular walks that link in to the main arterial route.
The route follows the Taff valley using old railway lines, canals and forestry paths to link Cardiff Bay with the Brecon Beacons via Llandaff, Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil.
We like a few ups and downs in South Wales. Well we would do wouldn’t we, we’ve got some of the most incredible mountain biking in the world. Whether you’re a beginner or a real trail warrior, our four quality trail centres will really spike your adrenaline. And whilst we love a few peaks and troughs out on the trails, the incredible views and unique accommodation really are on the level.
Bike Park Wales
If it’s your first visit to Merthyr Tydfil you will be amazed at the surrounding countryside, Brecon Beacons, The Black Mountains and our beautiful Welsh coastline are within arms reach. If you’ve sat aboard the uplift bus at BikePark Wales gazing out of the window, thinking to yourself – I wonder what’s up there ?
Our instructors have extensive local knowledge of the local area, they know the short cuts, the best bits, the secret bits and of course the best place to get some cake and refreshments to enjoy whilst you recover.
Mountain Biking at Cwmcarn Forest
Do you dream about riding that perfect piece of singletrack or twisting up through story-book woodland; the light filtering perfectly through the trees as your legs burn and beg forgiveness, before making a faultless transition into that smooth, flowing descent?
Named after the fearsome wild boar of the Mabinogion legends, the trail has it all, testing climbs, swooping descents and demanding technical sections. In 15.5km of almost pure singletrack through a landscape once scarred by coal mining now lives one of Wales’ hidden gems.
