Towns and Destinations

There’s a lot of ground to cover in Mid Wales. Two thousand square miles of breathtaking scenery and views that seem to go on for ever. So we’ve divided all this splendour into five destinations to make it easier for you to know where to start.

The Brecon Beacons National Park and International Dark Sky Reserve covers about a quarter of Mid Wales and includes the highest mountain in Southern Britain. The Cambrian Mountains are equally unspoilt and spectacular. The Berwyn Mountains loom pretty large, as the name suggests in Lake Vyrnwy and the Berwyns (you might have noticed a bit of a mountain theme there.) We also do the rolling hills and fertile valleys of Offa’s Country along the England-Wales border and the wildlife-rich beaches, mudflats and wetlands of the Dyfi Biosphere.

It’s all out there for you. It’s your experience. Do it your way.

This region of mountains, moorland and steep river valleys is home to about two per cent of the British population of peregrine falcons – and lots of other rare birds and animals.

 

But not too many people.

You may not have heard of the Dyfi Biosphere. Possibly because it’s the first biosphere in Wales and one of only three in the entire British Isles.

 

But you’ll be hearing a lot more about it in the future.

It can be safely assumed that Offa, an eighth century king of Mercia, didn’t think much of his Welsh neighbours.

 

In fact he spent a lot of time and trouble building a dyke all the way from one end of Wales to the other to keep us out of his back yard.

The Cambrian Mountains are the spine of Wales, a vast moorland plateau gouged by glaciers and cleft by steep valleys.

 

They begin at the Plynlimon massif, source of no fewer than six rivers. Which is why quirky Llanidloes is the first town on the Severn and Rhayader the first on the Wye.

They don’t do things by half in the Brecon Beacons National Park. It’s why these 519 mountainous square miles don’t just make up one of the best-loved landscapes in Britain. They’re on the world map too.
