Classic Motorcycling

Cwmshon Cottages welcomes classic motorbikes (and their owners) to some of the best motorcycling roads in the UK. Check out the A4069 Brynamman to Llangatog with its spectacular views and even more spectacular hairpin bends then call in at the famous West End Cafe in Llandovery before tackling the A483 to Builth Wells and beyond. This is a great place to ride a motorbike, with quiet empty roads leading to all sorts of destinations – from the eerie solitude of Mynydd Epynt to the bustle of the seafront cafe at Mumbles pier with its rows of immaculate Sunday cruisers.

Or if you're new to motorcycling or want to refresh your skills BMW Motorrad 5 miles up the road offers training at all levels from CBT to Direct Access to off road and First Aid training. Once you've done your training, Touratech next door will fit you and your bike out for that round the world adventure! Why not bring the family or your partner too and they can enjoy a holiday or short break in this lovely area while you get trained?

For classic trackday  and race enthusiasts Pembrey and Llandow circuits are 30 minutes away and there are other local events -  Speedway  at Amman Valley and hill climbs at Margam, annual motorcycle shows at Cardiff, Swansea and Carmarthen.

Graig Cottage is particularly suitable for motorcyclists with secure parking for up to 4 bikes. If you need help or advice VJMC member Andrew is on hand to lend a sympathetic ear, tools and the 'phone numbers of the right kind of mechanics.
