Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having visited Barry Sidings on a few occasions now for some prime mountain biking, i cannot praise the place highly enough.

The first trip i had a minor bike mechanical which the Bike Doctor fixed free of charge.

The trails are varied and full of fun. Probably not ideal for a beginner, but if you like a mix of tech, steep, some flow and the odd jump... get down there.

Café is always a delight, friendly staff and tasty grub after a long day on the hill.

Plenty of room to park too (and its free)!

If you know, you know!

What a great cafe! Staff are friendly and very welcoming. Food is great value and locally sourced. I'm a bit of a coffee snob and I was impressed with my cappuccino, so they know how to make coffee! The friendly staff make it a great experience

In recent weeks a group of us have been making the most of FREE day trips by taking the children to parks, beaches, lakes and mountains. It was one of the children's Birthdays and he wanted a Party in a park. Having first visited Barry Sidings 2 years ago, I suggested visiting here. We all met at Pontypridd Train Station loaded with suncream, hats, drinks, sausage rolls, sandwiches, cocktail sausages, crisps and of course a Birthday cake. We approached Barry Sidings from the Sardis Road entrance and walked along the path towards the playground and ponds. There were lots of people walking (with and without dogs) and cycling along the path, which was clean with minimal litter. The path was relatively smooth making it accessible to push chairs and wheelchairs The woodland scenery along the path was amazing and there were lots of wild flowers and squirrels.

When we reached the children's playground we decided to eat the picnic, because the children were hungry after their walk. We sat on the picnic benches, ate our lunch and sung happy birthday before cutting the cake. After eating, the children fed the ducks on the pond. The children spent about 2 hours in the well equipped playground before we visited the cafe.

At the cafe we ordered drinks, chips and ice creams. We sat inside, because it was a very hot day. The cafe was immaculate with palette wood furniture. We received a lovely welcome from the waitress who noticed that 'The Birthday Boy' was wearing a number 8 badge. She really took an interest in his Birthday presents and he told her all about his Party in the park. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced. From the cafe we walked over the old bridge to Hopkinstown Road and caught the bus back to Pontypridd. Next time we visit we will drive, because there is a free car park and the children can bring their bikes and scooters.

Have never come across such exception ally helpful staff. Seating inside cafe seating made up of pallets and other benches they kindly brought a chair for my mum(86). Instead of my having to go to counter to collect food ( I use a crutch) They kindly carried the food for us. Really good quality tasty beef burger and skin on fries. The prices are really good .

Have now visited here several times. Fantastic little country park, especially for families. Whether it's for walking, dog walking, scooters, or bikes, this place has it all. My eldest boy enjoys the big bike track, as well as the play park. We've met friends, and I've recently had another baby, which I can happily walk the tarmac paths with. Picnic areas, but would highly recommend the cafe! The food and drinks are reasonably priced, and good quality. Especially recommend the Luxury hot chocolate. Great day out

Barry Sidings Countryside Park was easy to find and we parked the car near to the entrance at Trehafod so we could walk the entire park. Along the path we passed lots of cyclists and runners whilst taking in the scenery and listening to the birds sing. The path was relatively smooth and was suitable for pushing a pram. Eventually we came across some ponds which were teaming with birds. There were lots of children feeding the birds and looking at the fish in the water. There is also a large playground area, a cafe and bike hire / repair shop. We briefly stopped at the cafe for a drink before continuing our journey to Pontypridd. The path led us to Sardis Road which is a short walk to the town centre, so we decided to browse the shops and find somewhere nice to eat. We intended to take the same route back, but we were laden with toys and other gifts for Christmas from B & M, Boots, Peacocks and Pep & Co. So instead of walking back we caught the bus to Trehafod to retrieve the car. We had a fantastic day and would definitely revisit Barry Sidings, because the walk was very pleasant and clean (no litter or dogs mess).
