Explored by many and loved by all that are entranced by the natural beauty of such a vast region, Mid Wales is great for a log cabin holiday; if you have not discovered it yet, needs to be added to your travel list.
Mid Wales has awesome mountains that rear out of the landscape like legendary haunts of the mythical creatures of old? Lovers of water will have plenty to choose from. Visit the rivers, lakes (such as Lake Vyrnwy) or the beaches on the coast. Not so heavily trodden by tourists, Mid Wales is a peaceful place, full of the Welsh traditions and stories with a bountiful amount of attractions and locations to tempt all members of the family.
If your yearning while on your holiday is for a trek around the monumental parks of the area, then the Brecon Beacons ticks more than just a few of the boxes. It covers a region that travels up towards the border with England. Pop into Abergavenny or Hay on Wye and spend some money at the local stores. Here you will find things unheard of in England, and if this is your first trip to Mid Wales, look out for the many signs and place names shown in both English and Welsh.
Offa’s Dyke is a hit with walkers, hikers and many other visitors to the area. As well as being an outstanding area of natural beauty, dotted around you will find plenty of craft centres. Don’t forget the castles, one of these is Powys Castle which brings with it a history and character all of its own. As well as having fun visiting the local sights, you can also run off plenty of energy rambling, pony trekking or gently following the local wildlife.
Of course, no holiday is complete without a trip to the coast, and Mid Wales is not lacking when it comes to brilliant beaches, hidden secret coves and caves to explore. Some of the larger seaside resorts are Newquay and Aberystwyth which provide so much to do, you may need to schedule more than just one day if you want to hit the shops and chill out on the beaches too.
If you have the mountain bikes strapped to the car, get ready for some lush trips over mountainous regions, down winding hills between rich pastures and get ready to say ‘hello ‘to a few local sheep or two along the way! There are always plenty of them.
