Dare Valley Country Park is already one of the top visitor spots in the region – and now it is stepping up a gear.

Gravity Family Bike Park opens this year, offering an incredible experience for all the family.

You can use the uplift service to be transported to the top of the Penrhiwllech mountain, before zooming down the trails.

There are three pump tracks scattered along the trails, so you can stop to test your skills and just have a great time.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a bike or the equipment, you can hire it from the Gravity Family Bike Park hub on site.

Keep the adventure going by trekking through the local countryside to enjoy some of the steepest ascents and best views in the area. (You can also take a gentle stroll on wheelchair and pushchair-friendly trails if you prefer!)

The kids will love the two playgrounds on site. There’s a small toddler area by the café – perfect to enjoy a cuppa and keep an eye on them at the same time.

The huge adventure playground has swings, slides, trampolines and even a wooden fortress to explore.

Black Rock Café is also a new addition to Dare Valley Country Park, offering a huge range of pizza, pasta, salads, burgers and roast dinners.

Make a stay of it. Our dog-friendly on-site accommodation has rooms that sleep up to four, including family rooms and wheelchair-accessible rooms. Or you can bring the caravan, trailer tent, motorhome or campervan and enjoy our facilities.
