Attraction details
Owner description: Mountain View Ranch is a Centre of Adventure offering fresh air fuelled fun! All of our activities can be undertaken in every weather and there is a canteen with freshly prepared hot food from 12-3pm, with hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks being served all day! Bring your kiddies to experience the amazing adventure play area, or the popular Gruffalo trail, where a fun fairytale character will come and take you on a journey through the woods! We also have many other exciting and interactive areas over our 100 acre site to explore such as the Fairy Forest, Badger Wood and the Indian Village. For the older ones (7yrs +, 120cm +) we have the High Ropes Challenge, a real bargain at £13 for 2 goes - which also includes admission into the park for the participant and an adult spectator! And for the even older ones (Adults) we have the off-road Segway Experience which takes you on a two-wheeled spin around the whole Ranch for either 25 minutes (£13) or 50 minutes (£25)! Then afterwards, the cosy lounge will keep you occupied with a number of books and children's stories available for everyone's use and enjoyment. It is also a lovely place to relax after our many Woodland Walks that are all sign posted. All the staff are friendly and always ready to help and instruct you wherever necessary. Party packages for kids or adults are also available, together with corporate events and school trips. OPENING HOURS are seasonal and may change with extreme weather conditions - please check our Facebook page for daily updates on daily opening times and events.

Thanks again for another excellent Segway trek in the heavy rain and wind, which made it more fun. The owners were very friendly and helpful (Aaron was really good in helping us and the weather didn't bother him), The Cafe/Restaurant is really welcoming, will be back again soon to try Sunday Lunch, Thanks again and see you soon

A few of us from the SPICE ADVENTURE group had the pleasure of the Segway experience today. It was absolutely fabulous. Location is on the side of a mountain with panoramic views. The trail is undulating and muddy which is, of course, loads of fun. A brilliant hour spend with Nick having fun. It might look boring on the poster - but you have to try it!!

Cafe/Canteen is large, clean and tidy, as well. Definitely a wonderful Caerphilly/Cardiff family attraction.

Lots of fun for the ten 12 year old boys we took. Boys also enjoyed the playground. Great dining area, good kids party food.

We booked for an hours session riding Segways around the old golf course. We were given instruction on how to ride the machines and it's surprising how quick you can pick it up. The only issue was that as there were 5 of us in the party and instruction is on an individual basis, it took about 15 minutes and as this time was included in the hour it meant less time on the course. The off road experience was excellent and the fact that it was a bit muddy made it a bit more interesting. After the Segway experience we had a hot chocolate in the cafe' accompanied by a large pice of home made carrot cake that was delicious. All in all a very good experience and would do it again.

Hard to find as no sign off main road for some reason. But once found could not fault the Segway experience, helpful staff, safety conscious at all times. Lovely surroundings. Cafe was lush, extremely clean with nice food. Will certainly return again as we all enjoyed so much.
