Ewch â mam am ddiwrnod llawn hwyl i’r teulu yng Nghantref – bydd hi wrth ei bodd.
You are here
We suppose eventually you might run out of things to do in Mid Wales. But we seriously doubt it.
For a start our landscape is designed for adventure. We’ve got cliffs for climbers, caves for cavers and gorges for gorge walkers. Forests to ride through, moorland to hike and hills to hang glide from. And more than enough water to keep our anglers, kayakers and white water rafters busy for the foreseeable future.
Plus we’re always thinking of new stuff to try. The sort of thing you didn’t know you’d always wanted to do until somebody mentions it. Soaring 2,000 feet up with the Black Mountains Gliding Club, for instance.
How about creating fire by friction or foraging for wild food with Red Dragon Bushcraft, tracing the World War Two aircraft crash sites of the Brecon Beacons National Park or learning to handle, feed and fly birds of prey at Pen-y-Bryn.
Or maybe your thing might be geocaching – the global treasure hunting game. A surefire way to get your kids out for a walk in the countryside when bribery and appeals to their better nature have failed.
Hidden away in various nooks and crannies of the Brecon Beacons National Park are more than 180 geocaches, from small film canisters to old ammo boxes. And you never know quite what you’re going to find inside. A map, compass and the clues on www.geocaching.com are all you need for the easier ones. You’ll require a handheld GPS unit and a bit of ingenuity for the rest.

Fancy a personal tour of a private castle site? Then we have a very special treat for you in 2017! Stapleton Castle occupies a commanding position on the hill overlooking Presteigne. It has no public access, due to the perilous state of the ruins. However for 2015 we are pleased to announce that the owners, Trefor & Margaret Griffiths, are offering guided walks to private parties around the site. Tours last a minimum of one hour and include the site of the 12th century castle, the ruins of the 17th century house, the mill site and a relaxing stroll through the gardens.
The new community exhibition has arrived! Bringing together on show for the first time, some of the real highlights of the local history collection, including Victorian mourning clothes, toys made by German POWs, the oldest Jury ballot box in Europe and much more. Star of the show is an Ethiopian Emperor's shield, which earned two national awards for its conservation in 2015.
