Cycling from Graig Wen

You're in bike-riding heaven here in Snowdonia. The Slate Shed B & B welcomes you whether you're mountain biking at Coed-y-Brenin, pedaling along the flat Mawddach Trail, or exploring the hills on quiet lanes.

We can provide bike storage and washing facilities and give you tips on our favourite routes and local mountain bike hire.

Graig Wen is a great place to bring your bike and cycle the Mawddach Trail – a disused railway line which is one of the most scenic, traffic free cycle rides in the country linking Dolgellau and Barmouth. Graig Wen is about 4 miles from Barmouth and 5.5 from Dolgellau. You can access the Mawddach Trail down a 500 – 600 metre track through our fields which is steep in places. Most (but not all!) cyclists tend to push their bikes back up! You can get to the George the III at Penmaenpool, the pubs, cafe and restaurants of Dolgellau or the sites and sounds of Barmouth.

Bike hire is available from Dolgellau Cycles at the start of the Mawddach Trail, Mawddach Trail Bikes, Birmingham Garage in Barmouth and Coed y Brenin mountain bike centre.

As well as the Mawddach Trail running past our gate, there are other excellent purpose made family friendly cycling routes in wider Snowdonia – see details here.
