I have been doing the mountain biking at the center and i am loving it, the trails are amazing, and good for everyone. The blue trail is good for pritty much everyone, but if you are more of a thrill seeker, then the black and red trails may be more entising, they have enough of everything and leave you craving...

Only had tea and cake here, but service was uneventful with friendly staff and views from the cafe were stunning. Lots of little wild birds waiting for crumbs so make sure you buy extra cake to feed them.

Top place to ride with many different trails for all levels of ability, from gently fire roads to switch back berms and massive rides.

We had a great day riding some of the trails. Really helped to improve my daughters confidence and enjoyment mountain biking. Bike shop very good and helpful. Cafe excellent for a good value pit stop. Only negative was rather a lot of dog poo left on one of the short walks. Some signs to remind people to bag and remove... More

Spent a week in the area and 4 days at the trail centre, not bored for 1 minute! More to do here than you could possibly explore in a few days, the trails range from green to black and everything in between so there really is something for all ability. If you are riding in this area of Wales then... More

Really friendly and helpful staff. Maps are great. Nice little gift shop plus a cafe. They also sell insect sprays which are very useful in the summer months.

We took a cadet group here for orienteering at February half-term. Unlike many such places, they do not rip you off for food and drink. All their food is locally sourced or produced. The cheese scones are highly recommended. The staff are friendly and the service is quick.The views down the valley great. Highly recommended.
