This is the Place for Adventure
Nick's Expedition Centre is unique as an adventure destination. Nestled in a hollow near the Gwydol river, it shelters against the back drop of the magnificent Bwlch y Groes mountain pass.
Nick's Expedition Centre
Tyntwll, SY20 8NR
Hidden Away Rural Retreat
Run by Nick Sanders and his wife Dr Caroline, this hidden away retreat is the perfect location to bring a group of enthusiasts for a weekends stay, enjoying Caroline's superb gourmet food and Nick's knowledge of the locale.
The Next Level of Adventure is not far from Home
This unique Expedition Centre is a well established concept used in motorcycling and cycling circles. As well as riding one to one with someone who has ridden around the world 7 (and a half) times on a motorbike and twice by bicycle, it is the perfect place to plan your next adventure ... and what a place to practise!
Gorgeous Gourmet Food
Simply put, the three course evening meal is a highlight of the evening. Vegetables grown in the Centre's organic garden compliments a meat or vegetarian menu sourced locally. From field to plate in less than 5 miles.
Glamping Under the Stars
In the best traditions of a rural location in Celtic Britain, the accommodation is as eclectic as you might imagine. We have a choice of style; Cabins, Shepherds Huts and Luxury under Canvas and if you compare prices you'll be astonished at how good value we can be.
One of the nicest cabins which we've had for years. Immaculately dressed with ironed cotton sheets and an authentic wood burning stove if it gets a little nippy. A joy to be in!
Our latest and best yet edition to our group of accommodations. Double bed and extremely spacious with private terrace and wood burner. Warm as toast with your very own balcony overlooking the lawn. This is the special place to be, you'll love it!
This spaciously bedded cabin is decorated in the style of Nick’s many USA trips. All the cabins have wood burning stoves, cotton sheets on superbly sprung beds and are totally cosy after a hard days riding on roads that barely appear on a map. Roomy and with a spare bed and a worktop for computers. Another favourate and very very cosy
This is now a double bedded cabin plus single for a family bubble. It is immaculate and incredibly comfortable. Set in a beautiful quiet glade between natural streams and trees, this cabin is inspired by one of many Pan-American Expeditions where Nick soloed or led clients during 8 occasions between 1996 and 2010. In 2012 Nick rode from Alakska to Ushuaia and back three times to get the double transit record riding 42,000 miles in 46 days. This is a must for a family 'bubble' or post Covid, a group of friends.
Cwt Afon Shepherds Hut
Cute beyond words. Cosy with a wood burner and double bed, traditional but with electricity installed and built new this year.
Cwt Cader Shepherds Hut
Same as Cwt Afon with a view over the valley and local hills. Totally private and peaceful.
Luxuriously put together with one great big double bed - super comfortable accommodation with tons of history. Like the truck this trailer should never have gone to Timbuktu but it did, pulled along by the trusty truck. It's heavy and not at all flexible but on bad roads bombproof. As accommodation it's in a much happier place.
Luxury Under Canvas
Fresh and breezy on a summers day. You sleep hearing nothing but the owls and a gurgling stream. There's no light pollution whatsoever. This is one of the three dark zones in the UK where on a cold night, the view of the Milky Way is as good as it is in the Sahara Desert. Based on T.E.Lawrence's (Laurence of Arabia) love of camping with his camel we have three tents and they are premium quality, clean and dry. A super adventurous choice, these glamping nomadic wonders are seated by the orchard in a secluded wooded glade. You are outdoors but in terms of comfort hardly know it; lamp lighting, carpets and warm log burning fire. Each tent is luxuriously appointed with a double bed for single occupancy or for a couple.

A FEW NOTES
Showers & Loos
In the hardy tradition of adventurous but fairly posh camping, whilst all cabins and tents have a bedouin-style piss-pot, worry not, there are 5 real proper flushing loos and 3 wet rooms with copious amounts of hotwater, all located in the main studio and the Biker Barn. With finely tuned temperature controls and heated towel rails you are hardly slumming it out here in this faraway land of west Britain. There is also a drying room should the need arise.
Tea and cakes on arrival. Three course meals, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and delicious cooked breakfasts to start the riding day. This really is a gourmet experience with locally sourced, home-grown organic food. Every dietary need is catered for.
Twisty narrow roads without any traffic. Cattle grids and gated tracks. Minor routes with views comparable to the beautiful Highlands with cafe stops hosted by the friendliest of proprietors. What is there not to like? Ride with Nick or with your own club guide, we'll give you all the info you need to get the most out of your stay.
NOW IT'S UP TO YOU
If you would like to ride with Nick near his home, enjoy clean fresh accommodation with home cooking served up by Dr. Caroline in his studio, then either individually or as a group please contact us and we will be happy to answer any queries you may have, or indeed cater for any requirements.
