Wet weather days
We won’t lie to you. It’s been known to rain in Mid Wales. It’s something to do with all our lovely mountains.
Now the odd passing shower won’t make much difference if you’re mountain biking or white water rafting. But otherwise there are plenty of fascinating places to keep you busy for an hour or two while you’re waiting for the sun to come out again.So fascinating, in fact, it’s a shame to save them up for rainy days.
The Judge’s Lodging at Presteigne is worth a trip even if the sun's rays are beating down outside. You’ll know you’re in “one of the world’s most appealing small museums” from the moment you walk through the front door and smell the paraffin lamps.
The Hall at Abbey-Cwm-Hir is another Victorian time capsule – 52 rooms stuffed with marble fireplaces, Rococo ceilings and so much paraphernalia that, in the words of author Simon Jenkins, “it explodes into rampant kitsch”. He should see the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture in Berriew. It’s the only museum in Europe dedicated to a living artist. And among many other works of decadence, exuberance and excess, it contains a sculpture called the Cosmic Egg.
