Cycling

Our cottages are a perfect base for a cycling holiday in South Wales.

We have dedicated secure cycle stores and bike washing facilities and have some adult and children's bikes and helmets you may borrow free of charge, at your own risk. Route 43 (traffic free) of the Sustrans National Cycle Network is 5 minutes from the cottages and you can cycle alongside the River Tawe up the Swansea valley to Ystalyfera 3 miles away. In the other direction, you can cycle off-road 10 miles down into Swansea and continue on the Swansea Bike Path round Swansea Bay on into Mumbles, finishing with a well earned ice cream at Verdi's ice cream parlour on the seafront.

We also have detailed directions for a great 2 ½ hour circular ride from the cottage over the Gwrhyd mountain and back along the cycle way beside the river Tawe.
