So the Mudtrek tag line is "Think of a Ski Chalet…for mountain bikers.. in Wales" and that is exactly what it is but so much better!
What a fantastic weekend we had! Top hospitality from Nikki and Jay.
The barn accommodation was really nice and so well appointed, everything you need for a comfortable stay, with secure location for your bikes. We all have EBikes and there was ample charging points.
The hot tub was brilliant and just what you need after a full days riding, the sunset view was something else.
The food, evening meal and breakfast, that Nikki provided were top end quality and we really didn’t expect the standard that was provided, very tasty and plenty of it, we didn’t go hungry, the packed lunches were fabulous, more than our expectation of a sandwich! Also catered for a glutton free need without any issue.
The BBQ on the Saturday evening was so good, because we had good weather Jay & Nikki invited us over to the house and we had the BBQ on the decking area, so much food, a cracking BBQ and what a stunning view!
We are five MTBs, all experienced in “off piste” trails and really didn’t want trail centre riding and Jay didn’t disappoint, we rode from the barn door to Brefcha Forest and rode some great trails, rocky, rooty shoots, twisty tree lined trails in the middle of woods, trails called Middle Earth, T-Rex, Pump’n’Grind, Treeline sprint and so many more, we managed to get in just over 34 miles and 4600ft of climbing!
Jay is a great guide, reviewed our riding ability quickly and decided what trails were suitable and capable of and guided us so well, he pushed us a bit as well but without any pressure, offered advice when needed and encouraged us, such a great day.
As we were all on EBikes, Jay got one as well which enabled us to stay out much longer and cover the distance we did, it was all about us enjoying ourselves as much as possible and he really achieved this!
