We are based at Cwmcarn Forest Drive, Newport, South Wales.

Don't forget to make a note of your booking reference. If you don't have a printer, you can write it across your forehead with a marker pen :-)

By Car

Don't forget your carpark money, cash only £1.00 for 2 hours, then £3.00 all day.  

From juction 28 of the M4, just follow the A467 heading north. You should see a sign for Cwmcarn Forest Drive at one of the roundabouts, turn right here, then after 150 yards or so, you'll see another sign to turn left. Go up the lane over all the speed bumps, you can either pull into the main carpark on the right, or go another 100 yards and park outside the center if there is space.

For those of you using sat-nav, use NP11 7FA, this will take you close to the visitor centre, but some Satnavs will lead you to a side street just around the corner. Cwmcarn Forest Drive is well sign posted, so once you get close, just followthe signs.

The pick up point for the uplift is in the main car, so turn right just before you get to the visitor centre. Park up, get yourself and bike sorted, then report to one of the drivers with your name and booking reference.

Don't forget your carpark ticket. £1.00 for 2 hours, £3.00 all day.

By Train

You can catch a train from Cardiff platform zero to Crosskeys, this is just around the corner from Cwmcarn, about 4-5 minutes on your bike.
