Cycling

We think we have got some of the best road and mountain biking in the world - great roads and tracks and views and hills to take your breath away. If you're looking for a family day out, the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is perfect for a relaxed cycle, or try the miles and miles of quiet waymarked routes in the glorious Crychan Forest.

Many of our cottages have the accredited Cyclists Welcome Award which means they have made a safe area for bike storage, washing and maintenance, and provide information about the many routes available across the Brecon Beacons, The Black Mountains and the Black Mountain.
