You’ll be in prime position for all sorts of south Wales outdoor activities while staying at Bryn Bettws Lodge – this gorgeous Glamorgan spot is inside Afan Forest Park, so it’s surrounded by mature trees and green scenery.
Mountain bikers in particular will be in their element here – the site is just opposite the forest park’s mountain bike trails, which have about 100 kilometres of twisting, turning track to follow, and it’s not far to Bike Park Wales for more chances to hone your skills on two wheels. There’s plenty to keep walkers busy too, whether you ramble along the forest park’s trails or head a little further north to the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Mixing a bit of seaside time should be straightforward too – it’ll take you about 25 minutes to drive to the nearest beach at Aberavon, or 45 minutes to get to the Mumbles and the Gower Peninsula (another excellent place for a walk – this time on the Wales Coast Path).
When it comes to feeding up for these outings, you’ve got a choice of starting up a barbecue or campfire on site (pick up supplies 15 minutes’ drive away in Port Talbot) or stopping by at the site’s café/bar, which serves up breakfast and lunch, and has plenty of outdoor seating to help you continue enjoying the views. There’s also a burger shack that opens for burgers, bacon rolls and the like at weekends, and you can book in for evening meals at the restaurant.
Showers, toilets and drinking water taps are all provided at this site; it’s a relaxed place in general but you’ll be asked to stick to quiet time rules after 10pm to keep things peaceful for everyone.

If arriving by caravan, do not follow sat nav up to Penrhys Farm. Instead, continue on Tonmawr Road and you will see the signs on the right for Bryn Bettws and Afan Bike Park. Follow the forestry road for just over a mile and Bryn Bettws is on the left hand side at the end of the forestry road.
If you need a little bit of relaxing time to recover from all the activities at the forest park, how about a trip to the beach? It’ll take you about 25 minutes to drive to Aberavon beach or around 40 minutes to Ogmore-by-Sea, where you can also stop by at the castle. That said, there’s still scope for activity down at the coast: Ogmore has horse riding outings, while Rest Bay (half an hour’s drive) is well known for surfing and bodyboarding.
Keen to keep the adventures coming? How about ziplining from a former colliery tower at Zip World Tower (35 minutes), tackling the trails of Bike Park Wales (45 minutes) or walking behind a curtain of water on the Four Waterfalls Walk (45 minutes)?
After all that you might just need a little tot of whisky from the Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre (35 minutes), or perhaps just a leisurely walk along one of the beaches of the Gower Peninsula (45 minutes).
