  • One of the most beautiful places in the UK. Great for various forms of outdoor activities. The hub has all the info you need and a nice café. Parking isn't expensive compared to other places. If you enjoy the great outdoors you have to visit Coed Y Brenin.
  • What a find. Beautiful spot with lots of quality facilities. More than we expected. If you cycle or run there are several marked routes for the novice to the expert. We came to walk and use the cafe. Again several walking routes. A children's trail which is quite hard but achievable. A longer walk to a waterfall (2hrs) or short walk of 45 others. Play area is good. Cafe has terrific views, good food and coffee. Even fish fingers sandwiches for those needing a quick food intake. It's £3 To park for 3 hours or £5 all day. There's also a good running shop and cycling shop.
  • Always a great place to ride, Cafe half way round The Beast loop a welcome respite before a real leg burner of a climb. Food good in cafe, some wonderful walks there too, away from the MTB trails which have been well planned / thought out. Only criticism is the bike shop and 1 x very obnoxious staff member - rest are more than helpful.
  • Had a great day mountain biking. Good facilities. Did get busy in visitor centre later on. But not on the trails. Will go again.
  • Great walks and bike rides, lots of parking at a reasonable rate. Well looked after site. Staff are always friendly at the café and they serve great cakes and all sorts of other food. Their breakfasts are excellent after a hard bit of exercise! The only gripe, as usual in the countryside, is people not picking up their dog poo or just leaving it in a black bag for us all to stare at in disgust.
