One of the many attractions of a stay at Craig Ddu bed & breakfast is its central location. From this comfortable family-run bed and breakfast you enjoy easy access to the delightful countryside around Blaenau Ffestiniog. One of the most prominent features in this North Wales landscape is the extensive areas covered by forest. While the forests provide local employment and a home for rare wildlife they also offer visitors many leisure opportunities.

A visit to Coed y Brenin

Natural Resources Wales are developing the Coed y Brenin forest as a centre of mounting biking. Coed y Brenin is within easy traveling distance of your accommodation at Craig Ddu. A visit is highly recommended because of the quality of the trails combined with the beauty of the scenery you pass through.

At Coed y Brenin you will find biking activities suitable for all age groups and riding levels. The trails are also designed for riding in all weather conditions. From these well-laid-out forest bike trails you get all the benefits of a fun biking experience plus the delights of seeing Snowdonia's spectacular mountain and river landscape from close quarters. As you ride through Coed y Brenin forest the views are going to take your breath away. You can see across a wide area of hills, valley and river scenery as far as Cader Idris.

Mountain Bike Trails for Everyone

It makes no difference if you think you can ride a mountain bike to competition standard or you are just beginning to take part in this exciting hobby, because you can rest assured that Coed y Brenin has a mountain bike trail that matches the degree of challenge you desire. For example, a track called the 'Falseteeth' includes a thilling "Cavity Drop" that is certainly not for the faint-hearted rider. Yet if you are looking for a ride that is rather less demanding you also have plenty of choices. One special and very welcome feature of Coed y Brenin forest is that it includes a mountain bike trail suitable for disabled people. The width and gradient of the MinorTaur trail has been specially adapted so that disabled riders can safely enjoy its attractions.

After burning out all those calories on the mountain bike trails you will probably want to relax in Coed y Brenin's recently built Visitor Centre. Here you can enjoy a refreshing meal in these beautiful forest surroundings. Just as many of our bed and breakfasts guests at Craig Ddu want to return for future holiday stays large numbers of Coed y Brenin visitors desire to come back again to try out more of its trails.
