If you’re the type of person that enjoys an active lifestyle, then Abergavenny, gateway to the Beacons, is the place for you. Abergavenny has just been proposed to become the cycling capital of Wales. A lot of activities are focussed around the annual cycling festival in July, but you can ride the quiet roads around the town all year around. At the Guesthouse we are familiar with the needs of cyclists, namely somewhere safe to store your bikes, a recommendation for a pub and some pasta, and a hearty breakfast to get you going! Oh, and we may even have some spare ASOS cream, though please don’t ask Jen to apply it as refusal often offends…
Check out some of the information on the Abergavenny tourist site.
Also, here is a great 50km circular route – cycle-route.com.
Walkers are also most welcome, in fact a large proportion of our guests intend to use the Guesthouse as a base for walking around Abergavenny and the Brecon Beacons. There are hundreds of resources on the web, but we particularly like some of the routes on this site.
Finally, if you’re not at all active, or you’re a lazy so-and-so, then just come to the Guesthouse, and watch all the other daft pratts get worn out – we don’t mind a bit!
