    Excellent clay pigeon shooting in the beautiful Welsh hills
    Excellent clay pigeon shooting experience with Taff Valley Quad Bike and Activity Centre. I was given a voucher for my birthday and was really looking forward to it. When I rang to book the lady who took the call was extremely helpful and friendly, and the information we were sent, especially the directions up through the beautiful Welsh country side. For the shooting itself we were with another couple, and we were taken by land-rover over to the shooting range. The man running the shooting was very calm and friendly, have very clear instructions and advice. We had a few different options and given fresh instructions each time. I couldn't recommend this more, what a fabulous experience.

    Stag Activities - quad biking & shooting
    Fantastic experience. Booked quad biking and clay pigeon shooting, mixed ability group, with some novices. All of us throughly enjoyed the day and I cannot recommend this place enough. Great high quality standard of instructions and tuition from all members of staff. Made everything feel relaxed and safe to have a great time. Thank you very much indeed

    Quad biking fun for kids!
    My son (age 7) went quad biking and had a brilliant time! Before we went we were worried the bikes would be too big for him but the bike was a perfect size. The instructor was friendly and communicated well with the kids - giving clear instructions and making them answer questions to ensure they had understood. It was very clear that he took safety very seriously but approached it in a way that didn’t detract from the fun. My son said it was the best day ever and now wants a quad bike!!

    Quad bike fun!!
    From First contact when booking the quad biking, found staff friendly & informative! Good directions to a family run farm. First time on quad bikes with my son, a bit worried but with clear instructions & some practice runs, we were ready! Really good fun & over to soon! We then went for an Archery session in the barn! Again all good clear instructions & safety info. Hour went by far too quickly but good fun. Small cafe on site & toilets! Everyone really friendly!!

    Exciting, fun and great scenes.
    We were lucky to have great weather on this great activity. Llewellyn was our instructor for the day and he was great and his instructions were sound and he took health & safety of us visitors seriously. The scenery was fantastic and the quads were exciting, especially on the top field. A great experience overall and would highly recommend.

    Great visit!
    Brilliant day out! We did the quad biking and axe throwing - both were so fun and our instructor was really friendly and helpful. He explained everything perfectly to make sure we were safe and had fun! Recommend to anyone!

    Best Archery experience in Wales if not the UK
    Booked to go to Archery on a Saturday afternoon and I cannot recommend this place any more. Griff our guide was so knowledgeable and had a fun friendly manner, made the experience memorable and we learnt a lot. We’ve both been to other archery experiences in wales and this is by far the best! We will definitely be back!

    Good value for money and thoroughly enjoyable.
    A good value for money experience learning how to use a geared quad bike and drive it over different terrains on a running Welsh farm, with stunning views. An informative instructor who ensures full understanding of the equipment so that you feel confident to explore. Wish we lived closer so we could go back soon

Went for nephews birthday today. Instructor's were great and it was in a very safe controlled environment only criticism I have is paid for an hour on the quads and the safety guide was part of the hour so in total 20 mins safety briefing and 40 minutes actually on the quads so the boys were disappointed they weren't riding for as much time. I think this should be improved as £40 is alot of money and we weren't made aware of this beforehand. Otherwise the experience was great just not sure about the value for money.

Brilliant afternoon spent Quad Biking & Axe Throwing. My 14 & 12 year old boys loved it. Really patient & supportive instructors helped my youngest along & at his own pace on the quad bikes which helped quell his nerves. They supplied all the gear too, helmets, gloves & boots. Muddy, wet & fun!

The instructors had same care & attention with axe throwing, John was a blast, making axe throwing just as much fun as the quad bikes. Lots of encouragement for my wife & great rugby banter too!

Nice pies, scones & Welsh cakes too!

Highly recommended! Highlight of the holiday! We’ll be back...

Four of us including myself decided to go quad biking the weekend just gone. I have to say, I've done quad biking a few times before and this was by the far the best quad biking experience I've had. The host/instructor were friendly and gave clear instructions on how to operate the bikes, tips and risks. Only downside is the fact half of the group took the wrong turn when trying to locate the centre. However, they were patient and waited for us to attend. Other than that I would definitely go again and recommend it to any adrenaline junky or any quad biking first timers.

Fantastic eye for detail. Took every precaution to allow the 1 weaker rider time to accustom and allow him to ride the whole course in safety.
100% value for money. And thoroughly enjoyable. Some quips of humour to ease any reluctance newcomers would have. You could not ask for more care in such a situation.

Never failed to have a great time quad biking here. They kindly agreed a ride with less than 2 hours warning and had a brilliant time. Great instruction and Lew the instructor, he gauges your ability and adjusts the ride to suit. Amazing value for money but most of all so much fun. Have never had a bad time. Thanks again all.

Large group of us attended and everyone enjoyed it. Quadbiking, clay pigeon shooting and archery - all loads of fun and having a small cafe on site was great too with hot food and drinks available.

Would give it 5/5 but found one of the quad biking instructors condescending while I was trying to sort out an issue during the pre-ride briefing. Same happened to another member of the group. He had a very stand-off, grumpy attitude. Perhaps we caught him on an off day? The other instructor at the back of our convoy was brilliant and very helpful.

Otherwise, all the team were really friendly and helpful and highly recommend a visit. The activities were so much fun!

Do note, the lane up the hill to the centre is narrow in places.

The farm was easy to find following the sat nav and they had decent car park space. They also had a little shack to buy snacks and drinks with outside benches and there were also toilet facilities. The younger staff were polite and okay but didn’t really talk to any of us customers much except for Hopkin who I believe was running the business. Hopkin made small talk with everyone and was quite funny in my opinion. He does like to have a bit of banter so take what he says with a pitch of salt if you are easily offended. Hopkin was very thorough in his training on operating the quad bikes and made sure that everyone understood by quizzing everyone. He also took us through warm up exercises doing figures of eight in a safe way. While travelling through each section/field we would stop and Hopkin would check that everyone was good and happy and would give details of upcoming trail. There were amazing views and lush green fields.

Taff Valley Quad Bike and Activity Centre were very helpful right from the booking process. I recommend emailing rather than phoning. We we able to book our activities at a day/time that suited our needs.
The gentleman who took us quad biking was very calm and clear with his instructions and explained what we were going to do at every stage. The practice track looks very small but don't worry, after that you are taken all over the farm, up and down the hillside through various tracks and fields. The scenery is beautiful and we were fortunate to have a calm, clear, sunny afternoon therefore no waterproofs or coats were needed. We definitely had our hours worth on the quads possibly a little longer.
Next we took part in archery with a different instructor. He was another friendly gentleman but straight to the point with his instructions. We all had several practice shots (2 people firing at once) followed by 5 scoring rounds. We thoroughly enjoyed the archery but it was over very quickly. I think this session was about 45mins. We would have liked it to go on for a bit longer as you're just getting the hang of it and then it's time to stop.
