Reviewed 18 July 2014

My wife and I have just returned from a super week with Jenny,Tim and the dogs. The standard of food,guiding and accommodation is first class. We shared our week with six Swedish guests and they were great and also made my wife and I feel part of the group. Jenny and Tim are very experienced at working with varied biking skill levels. Each day included a mix of double track ( used for the climbs !!) and single track decents . We were never forced to handle all the single track decents and other easier options were always available. The land rover support was always on hand for a cooling drinks/lunch stop. We needed this as the weather for the week was very hot particularly when the runs for the day dropped lower down the mountain.

This is by far the best and luxurious biking holiday, rooms were clean and comfortable , food was fantastic and of course Tim and Jenny were so welcoming. The range they chose to use and expert leadership skills were second to none, all of our limits were push in a safe manner with the mountains as a back drop. Any skill level, they can cater for. This has been so much fun I don’t know where to start, so I will leave it to you to go and find out……..

Room Tip: Enjoy Yourself.

Had a great time on the bike, ate lovely food and got some skills on the skills course with Katy Curd. Great holliday on a very beautiful spot. Jenny was a really good guide so we got to ride trails that the whole group enjoyed. Rooms were clean and in the beds you sleep so nice.

This was my fourth trip (need I say more?!?!) to Pure Mountains, and it was fantastic. The accomodation is top notch, as is the food, the guiding, the slick and well thought-out arrangements and organisation, and the riding. The bikes are well-maintained and excellent quality, and Tim and Jenny go above and beyond to ensure your comfort and share their knowledge and experience on all things mountain biking.
The location is stunning, and there is an excellent choice of trails to match all abilities. There is no pressure to ride anything that you don't want to...it is a holiday after all!
I was on the Bike Girls trip, with Katie Curd offering expert advice and tuition. This was soooo good - relevant, useful and helpful, with the immediate opportunity to practice what you were learning for as long as you wanted to. Both individual and group tuition was offered, and I would thoroughly recommend this trip if you want to learn new skills & develop what you already know.
If you want amazing riding with stunning views, fresh air and the odd eagle or two soaring overhead, then this is the holiday for you.

This was the second time I've arranged a group trip to Pure Mountains, like the first time we requested 'custom' dates crossing Jenny and Tims usual week structure but on each occasion our requirements were met perfectly and the provided logistics faultless.

The location of the house is stunning, as is the property itself. Even when accommodating an extra body than the standard number as we were on this occasion. The rooms are perfectly suited to the adventurers needs, comfortable and well appointed.

Catering at Pure Mountains is wonderful and perfectly suited to support the efforts of a day in the saddle, afternoon tea and fresh cake never failing to revive the tired biker.

However it's the team themselves and their skills as guides and hosts that take Pure Mountains to another level. The detailed level of knowledge to consistently provide skill suitable trail to all levels, combining vehicle support points and beautiful shady lunch and rest spots is extra ordinary. The guiding skills on the bike are no less impressive. Tim and Jenny really are a wonderful team and the Pute Mountains experience really is as special as it is unique. What's more when all content is considered it's startling value for money. Tip Top.

Stupendous biking through gorgeous landscapes; expert and really fun guides; and an idyllic farmhouse with stunning views, comfy rooms and great food to begin and end each day. We were a mixed ability group, from the skilled and fearless to the pretty cautious and not-so-experienced, but Tim and Jenny ensured that there was tantalising riding for everyone. The logistics were seamless and those of us who rented Pure Mountains' fabulous bikes were in for a particularly special treat - top notch bikes, serviced daily. We have only just got back and are already looking forward to our next trip.

Second visit to Pure Mountains lived up to every fabulous memory first time round. With a wider range of abilities than my first visit we really saw how brilliantly Tim and Jenny adapt to suit all and ensure that everyone has the very best on offer. In a breathtaking location, it was lovely to enjoy wholly new trails and some really challenging old favourites too. Tim and Jenny are impeccable hosts, blending pure professionalism with enormous warmth and evident pleasure in making such special trips possible, plus we took away some super riding tips that transformed our skills base. We will most definitely be back, just can't wait :-)

Room Tip: N/a, every room is stunning!
