Meet the team

Manager recommends: We’re located half way up a quiet valley with some really fantastic routes for walking and cycling holidays right outside the front door! There is something for everyone. Those on a family break can enjoy short waterfall walks or easy cycling on the Taff Trail. For a more energetic activity break, try the more challenging routes across the Beacons.
