1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Fiona and Gareth did an excellent job in making our biking holiday a success. They planned the right level of routes (distance and altitude) for the different rides. It was a great place to relax too. The rooms are spacious and practical (lots of bike gear). We had a great holiday.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Trust Gareth to plan the right level of activity, he knows his business.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

They took us to local restaurants so we could understand the area. Their choice was excellent, and we went back to Al Born twice as it was very good. They also recycle glass, paper, cans and plastic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, thanks to Fiona and Gareth.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The 30k mountain bike ride that took in parts of the local scenery that would have remained unseen without the guidance and assistance of our host.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

For full flexibility hire a car.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not especially although the riding stables did do well out of the visitors.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A great holiday and well worth considering for a return. The hosts accommodate families that want to be off the beaten track just as well as cycling or other sport enthusiasts.
