Family Friendly Routes

A family bike ride can be a great way to spend time together, get outside and tire the young ones out so they’ll sleep later.

Cycling with young children is often easier and safer on traffic-free routes, so if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of traffic, Carmarthenshire has some fantastic traffic free routes on The Celtic Trail West, alongside some great family friendly routes.

A superb mostly flat, well surfaced and easily accessible coastal traffic free route that follows the stunning Carmarthenshire coast, along the route of the Wales Coast Path for a distance of approximately 13miles from Bynea in the East to Pembrey Country Park in the West.

Providing a 16 mile traffic free pathway through one of the most scenic areas of Wales, it will follow an almost adjacent route to that of the River Tywi as it flows from Llandeilo to Carmarthen on its way to Carmarthen Bay.

Pembrey Country Park

Experience over 500 acres of beauty. There are trails through the woods as well as the paths around the park. If you fancy a longer rider then you can join onto the Millennium Coastal Path.

Bike hire is available, individual bikes or our 4 seater family bikes and a selection of adaptive bikes for a fun family activity for everyone inside the park.
