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.

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 8 times on a motorbike and twice by bicycle, it is the perfect place to plan your next adventure ... and what a place to practise!

Superb Locally Sourced 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 and Shepherds Huts and if you compare prices you'll be astonished at how good value we can be.

Ty Haf

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!

Ty Newydd

Also brand new and just one of the best new rooms we've added to our group of accommodations. Note the magnificent double bed which is extremely luxurious and includes a private terrace. It's warm as toast with your very own balcony overlooking the lawn. This is the special place to be, you'll love it!

Ty Cwm

Just finished, the paint not yet dry and smelling of freshly cut timber. Ty Cwm cabin is everything you would want for a getaway weekend either for yourself or with someone very special. Built onto the edge of the small Tyntwll small holding it is one of the most private spaces overlooking the village down in the valley and wild countryside to the hills where the sun rises each morning.

Patagonia Cabin

This is now a double bedded cabin plus single for a couple of two ride buddies. 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.

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.

Timbuktu Trailer

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.

New for 2022

5 new accommodations have been built and renovated for the new biking season. Three brand new Shepherds Huts built to the highest specs, immaculately furbished and just so beautiful to be in you will never want to leave.
