Welcoming Holiday House, near Brecon (ABECYBR)

A wonderful large family house to sleep 10 people, superbly located in a remote yet accessible location near the picturesque Blaen y Glyn waterfalls and beside the Talybont Reservoir, which is now a SSI with its large number of seasonal visiting waterfowl. There is a 'hide' for bird watchers beside the reservoir and trout fishing on the reservoir. The Taff Cycle trail runs past the house, so bring your mountain bikes or can be hired locally. Only a few minutes walk into the woods behind the house is an interesting neolithic site. Brecon Mountain Railway is also only a few minutes drive up the valley. This is a very popular spot for hill walkers and mountain bikers being an easy access point on to the mountains. As shown on ITV "Holiday Home Sweet Home".

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.
