Bounce Belowtrampolining and exhilarating Zip World (01248 601444) are also in the Snowdon area, while downhill mountain biking at Coed Y Brenin Visitor Centre (01341 440747) in Dolgellau is perhaps the most popular way to get the heart pumping. The Climach-X trail, in the southern section of the Dyfi Forest, is also a popular mountain biking route. It's just over 4 miles north of Machynlleth on the A487.
Food & DrinkA couple of miles away in Llanfair Caereinion, there's a romantic wine bar called Just 3 Drops (01938 811917) that comes highly recommended. Ruth serves great food, including tapas, and the wine selection is fantastic. In the same town, The Goat Hotel (01938 810428) is also excellent – a busy, friendly and warm local pub. There are two other cracking pubs serving food in The Red Lion ( 01938 810341) and The Black Lion (01938 810759). Supplies-wise, there's an excellent butchers in Pandy's (01938 810671), while the Banwy Bakery (01938 810952) serves a great selection of cakes and baked treats as well as decent breakfasts and lunches. The town also boats a post office, Spar, Londis, petrol station and a fish and chip shop. Chat with Tracey and Terry in advance and guests can also arrange Champagne, Prosecco, cakes, balloons and more, before they arrive.
The campsite isn't the easiest to find and the postcode is shared with five other rural properties. Simply using the name 'The Secret Yurts' does take you straight to the site though. Tracey and Terry send you detailed directions when your booking is made.
The nearest train station is Welshpool (0845 748 4950), where there is a taxi rank to get you the rest of the way. Pick up and drop off can also be arranged with the campsite.
