Hi all, Hopefully someone can help, me and the missus are thinking of going to ride afan in two weeks. Does anyone know of any decent places to stay for a night. I was thinking of camping but i think i may be pushing my luck a bit, so are there any decents b&b's with bike storage and such.

    Run by bikers. Really friendly and knowledgeable. Very clean rooms. Own pub and restaurant, secure bike storage.

    Couldn't have asked for any more when we stayed there this year. Will be staying again next time.

    I've been twice now. Very friendly owners/staff, nice rooms and good food - my brother and I would recommend it. Only thing to note was that they can be very busy in the 'restaurant' on an evening (the food is good!) so it is worth booking a table. There doesn't seem to be anywere else locally to eat and you'd have to drive. When we were there the other week they couldn't fit us in, not that it mattered though as we ate in the bar (we're not posh!)...

    Enjoy your weekend!

    It can get a bit windy staying near afan.

    Is the restaurant menu pricey? I'm thinking of staying there with mates in November and being a student - money is rather tight.

    +1 for the lodge. Great place and great people.
    The menu isnt stupidly priced but it can add up over a few nights.
    Im not sure if theres anywhere else to eat near there but I didnt go specifically looking either.
