You might have thought that Mid Wales has enough natural attractions to keep anyone busy for a lifetime. And you’d be right.
But we’re not content with having the tallest peak in southern Britain, some of the country’s most spectacular waterfalls and a night sky that’s officially one of the darkest and starriest in the world.
We’ve made some extra attractions, just for you. The sort of places where you can’t just soak up the scenery – you can have a cup of tea and a slice of cake and buy a souvenir for your mum.
Or at the very least you can do something that will live you for ever. For example, watching a pig race, being sailed down a subterranean river by a hooded boatman or hearing the howl of the only wolves in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Think of it as a day out, the Mid Wales way.
Llanvihangel Court is a Grade 1 listed 16th century manor house and a loved family home. Set in 100 acres of formal gardens and meadow land it is a place of unusual beauty.
King Arthur's Labyrinth
Found deep beneath the mountains of Southern Snowdonia in the village of Corris, King Arthur's Labyrinth is one of the most mysterious visitor attractions in Mid Wales.
Ynyshir nature reserve
Ynys-hir mixes Welsh oak woodland with wet grassland and saltmarshes.
In the spring, the ground is carpeted in flowers, and birdsong fills the air. You might see flycatchers and redstarts emerging from the nestboxes.
