Bryn Bettws Lodge and Log Cabins are based at Gyfylchi in Afan Forest Valley which is in the South Wales Valleys. We have become the first choice for Mountain Biking short breaks and Educational School and College Visits. This is not surprising when you consider our destination in the world renowned Mountain Biking haven and walkers paradise in the Afan Forest Park, with over 12 purpose built mountain biking routes. Our guests can ride from the door as we are a stone throw away from trails, if you are not a guest we have free parking so you can start your ride from here and when you return, you can relax in the cafe and bar and have full use of our shower block.
Welcoming and friendly owners and staff with a relaxed atmosphere to make your stay enjoyable!
The location of Bryn Bettws is stunning, perched high on an eagles nest location on a pine tree clad mountain, we have a comfortable lodge for couples or groups with all rooms en suite.
The 4 log cabins were all hand built by the owners and overlook the stunning vista below to other south Wales valley trails and walks.
We have camping available for those who wish to spend the night outdoors under the stars.
Bike Park Wales is approximately a 45 minute drive to/from Bryn Bettws which makes us an ideal base for a break to explore the Afan Valley Trails and Bike Park Wales. With Afan Bike Park about 200 metres from the front door of Bryn Bettws you have everything you need for a great break away!

That’s not all… In 2010 we introduced Wales’ first world class Mountain Biking Dirt Track, built to international competition standards by Olympic course designer Phil Saxena and his team from Architrail.
