Walking, hiking, running, biking direct from the door

Here at Benar Cottages, the immensely popular Activities Folder has your entire holiday planned out for you. The folder contains:

  • Forest walks that start right here at Benar Cottages (enough to keep you busy for more than a week)
  • Running routes – a trail runner’s paradise (including a half-marathon for you to try)
  • Walks further afield in Gwydyr Forest including one that’s great for wheelchair users and little-ones in buggies
  • Penmachno Mountain Bike Trails map
  • Guide for birdwatchers including details of all the species of bird you might see from the terrace of your cottage

We had a lot of fun putting together the activities in the folder. Each walk started with a destination in mind and an OS map, we then repeated the activity, recording the route precisely using GPS. After writing the laminated activity sheet as completely as possible, we challenged our friends to try it – just to make extra certain that it all makes sense.
