The outside here is as lovely as the inside with lovely views up the valley to woodlands and across the valley with a patch work of fields dotted with sheep and cattle. There is a stone terrace behind the house with a BBQ and garden furniture; and a lock up shed for mountain bikes and a hose for cleaning them. A bank of wild flowers and a long sloping lawn; this is a great place to have an evening drink and take in the stunning scenery and watch the Red Kite overhead. The day we were there lots of fox gloves along the lane and they were cutting the hay field with at least 15 Red Kite following the tractor overhead!

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
