Outdoor & Nature


The landscape of Mid Wales is special. So special that the powers that be keep sticking labels on it.


We’ve got a National Park, a Biosphere, an International Dark Sky Reserve, a European Geopark and so many Special Areas of Conservation and Sites of Special Scientific Interest that we’ve nearly run out of capital letters.


We’re very grateful for the recognition. But you don’t really need to know all this. You just need to look around you.


When you hear the dawn chorus, walk behind a waterfall or witness one of our famously starry nights, you’ll know just how very special Mid Wales is!
