Hi Folks

I am organising a trip for me and 3 buddies to South Wales to have a go at BPW, Afan and Cwncarn.

Anyone stayed at a good B&B or Cottage with good access to thew three parks and possibly jet wash etc?

Or any other good suggestion>

Regards

    if you want to stay at afan then bryn bettws lodges are good:

    right next to the 'bike park' bit and literally on 'the wall' trail.

    cwmcarn also has some camping pods that are supposed to be ok:

    you're probably better off staying near bike park wales as it's more central, but I don't know anywhere there except the premier inn sorry.

    I'd stay at Afan, if I were you. There's at least twice as much riding at Afan as there is at the other centres, so although you'd have further to travel to get to, say, Cwmcarn, that would be more than made up for by two or three days where you wouldn't have to get in the car at all.

    We Ended up booking at Gethin Lodge in Myrthr Tydville.

    Its located between the three centres and is about 30 mins to each location.

    Cheers for the advice though.

    Just waiting for the Canyon Spectral to be delivered.

    I'm guessing you mean 30 mins to afan and cwmcarn as bike park wales is in Merthyr?

    have a good one though :)
