There are several areas of broadleaf woodland and a designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) alongside the Nant Menascin River which runs down the valley.

This barn offers complete seclusion in a truly wonderful location with stunning views and miles of uninterrupted walking straight onto the Brecon Beacons. There is an abundance of wild life (including Red Kites, Peregrine Falcons, Merlins and Buzzards). At the top of the river there are waterfalls and pools for swimming and in springtime there is a wonderful bluebell wood.

This is fantastic riding country and three stables are available on the farm with grazing by arrangement with the owner. The owner is also happy to show visitors around the farm to look at the animals etc.

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.
