This little market town is based right on the Wales border; visitors crossing the River Lugg from Presteigne will literally come ashore in England! Having catered for travellers for many centuries, the town is packed with independent shops, historic inns and taverns. The Town Trail is a fascinating journey passing through the 13th century Broad Street, the ironmongery shop and The Dukes Arms, notable as being the last mail coach in the UK.

Formerly the County court, today the Shire Hall has been restored so that visitors may explore the judge’s lodgings through to the dingy cells and servants quarters. All of this is along to an audio tour of excerpts from historical characters. The hills above the town are said to have been stalked by a ghostly hound which reputably inspired Conan Doyles tale of the Baskervilles.

Just across the border in the Leominster area are two further castles; Croft Castle and the Wigmore stronghold. Radnor Forest can be enjoyed by foot, mountain bike or horseback, or for something different a local company can even provide a carriage drive through the forest. For really getting away from it all, the Burfa Bog nature park is a rich environment for wildflowers and bird watching.

Mid 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.
