LocationNewtown

On the banks of the River Severn, this is the largest town in Powys and was home to the social reformer Robert Owen. There is a museum in the town dedicated to this pioneers work, and a textile museum celebrating the wool industry upon which the town was built in the 18th century.

Plenty of walks to choose from in and around the town, along canal paths and nature reserves. Just a short distance away is the Pwll Penarth wildlife reserve, ideal for a relaxing walk or bird watching from the hides. The gardens at Gregynog Hall are worth a visit, there is a large library in the house and the estate also offers fishing and shooting activities. Montgomery castle is a fantastic setting for a relaxing family day out or picnic, the info boards give an interesting historical insight into as far back as the 11th century.

The ruins of Dolforwyn castle are an interesting historical site, and from the hill top there are views right across to Montgomery Castle and the Severn Valley. Penarth Vineyard offers tours and wine tastings upon appointment. The Mid Wales Arts Centre has a large gallery and Sculpture Park, this venue also hosts exhibitions, music events and workshops. Another art centre in the town is the Oriel Davies contemporary art gallery, with writing and crafting courses available which are best booked in advance. The Hafren offers a variety of musical and comedy shows.

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.
