The Best Glamping Sites in Wales for Mountain Biking
You may not know it but the UK is one of the best destinations in the world for mountain biking. We should know! A number of the staff here at Wigwam Holidays are keen mountain bikers and frequently travel the length and breadth of the country searching for great trails.
There is excellent riding to be found in most parts of the country, but Wales stands out as something special for UK mountain bikers. Its hilly geography and wet weather mean lots of gravity and soft dirt for trail builders and riders to work with. It’s also home to most of the country's best mountain bike parks and (you guessed it!) a good number of excellent Wigwam Holidays sites.
This week we’re looking at the best Wigwam Holidays sites in Wales for anyone planning an escape to the trails.
Wigwam Holidays Hafren sits just on the border of Powys in Mid-Wales and is just half an hour from arguably the country's best and most loved mountain bike Park - Dyfi Bike Park. Dyfi Bike Park was created by mountain biking’s most successful racing family, the Athertons, and is a truly world class location for experienced riders. With some magnificently big jumps on offer as well as some of the best downhill riding in the country, a trip to Wigwam Holidays Hafren is a sure bet for any experienced riders looking for a fun trip away.
This site sits just above the town of Brecon in South Wales. Brecon sits in the Brecon Beacons national park, a stunning range of hills home to one of the country's largest mountains - Pen y Fan. Just over half an hour's drive south from here is Bike Park Wales - a mountain bike location with a huge selection of trails to suit all abilities. Bike hire and great facilities make this a particularly good destination for families or less experienced riders.
Still in mid-wales but further to the east lies Wigwam Holidays Knighton, a beautiful and secluded sight with some really fantastic riding nearby. The mountain bike trails at Bringewood are just over a 30 minute drive away and offer a great variety of fun flowy singletrack to suit most abilities. Pearce cycles also runs an uplift service here so be sure to check out there website if you don’t feel like pedalling!

Slap bang in the centre of Wales - Wigwam Holidays Builth Wells is a stunning site that enjoys beautiful views over the rolling Welsh valleys.
