Mid Wales is home to rich, rolling green landscapes, the unspoilt Ceredigion coastline, the stunning Cambrian Mountains and glorious castles, gardens and railways. An idyllic rural destination with plenty to see and do.
Powis Castle, began life as a medieval fortress and is one of the country’s finest examples towering high on a rock above the garden terraces. Spend time exploring the magnificent collections contained in the castle and its world-famous garden, with spectacular yew hedges and lavish herbaceous borders, as well as a superb collection of treasures from India displayed in the Clive Museum.
Part of the rugged Cambrian Mountains, Elan Valley Visitor Centre in the beautiful Elan valley, is a beautiful and unspoilt area made even more compelling by the dams and reservoirs which together create a wonderful, living landscape. The views are stunning and you are never far away from points of interest. The visitor centre, set in a fantastic location against a backdrop of a Victorian stone dam, tells the story of how the dams were built.
Take in the captivating scenery on the award-winning Vale of Rheidol Railway for a nostalgic journey through some of Wales’ most spectacular scenery or embark on a 6 mile return vintage steam train journey through the breathtaking rugged beauty of the Brecon Beacons from Pant to Torpantau.
