Views Around Blaendyffryn Fach

Walkers & Cyclists

We have recently been awarded Walkers Welcome and Cyclists Welcome status from the Wales Tourist Board.

Wales Tourist Board Certificates

We are keen walkers ourselves and having lived here for over 30 years, would be happy to offer advice on anything from a short walk to a serious hike. We can also provide maps and compass. For a small fee we will go with you as a guide to the area's secret places.

For cyclists, the cottage is situated four miles from the start of the  Brechfa Forest mountain bike trail.

A quote about Brechfa's Red Route, from Mountain Bike Rider magazine, reads: "In fact, if we were to stick our necks, we'd say that no other section of man-made singletrack will spit you out the end with a bigger grin."
Mbr has voted the Doethie valley the 2011 Trail Of The Year, come and explore. We can provide maps.

We are also situated midway between the Nant y Arian and Afan Argoed trails. We have recently built a secure bicycle shed with cycle washing facilities and a limited supply of spares.
