what to do:

There are so many things to do in this delightful part of Wales; it’s really quite hard to know where to start…

There are miles and miles of footpaths to be walked, including a trail to the source of the River Severn, or going the other direction, the Severn Way. Offa’s Dyke is close by, along with many footpaths to explore leading to tumbledown cottages, old forts or stone circles, don’t forget your OS map!

There are many paths and trails suitable for cycling from the Coed Y Brenin for serious mountain bikers to a flat and leisurely trek around the scenic Lake Vyrnwy (both just over 30 minutes away)

For fly fishing enthusiasts there is the 615 acre Llyn Clywedog or an intimate local pool Pant Y Gesail, just under 3 miles up the road, run by a local angler or the stretch of the Severn at Caersws just 6 miles away, all with day tickets available.

The opportunities for bird watching are staggering in this area, with the glorious Red Kite at the top of everyone’s list, with such a diversity of local habitat, from lakes to upland streams and rivers to open moor land, wooded areas and sheltered valleys, if you have the patience you will be surprised at what you can see. Of course there are several important bird watching centres around here, Lake Vyrnwy, Ynys Hir, Glaslyn, and two Kite feeding stations about 45 minutes down the road, Nant Yr Arian near Aberystwyth and Gigrin farm at Rhayader.

For the adventurous types there is The Forest experience Rally school, on our doorstep and the world class clay pigeon shooting ground at Trefeglwys.

The more “handy” amongst you may be interested in the newly established Cae Du Woodturning and Craft shop less than half a mile up the road from us which stocks a range of unique handcrafted gifts as well as woodturning equipment and craft supplies.

We are ideally located to explore many of the local market towns of Llanidloes, Newtown, Machynlleth, and Rhayader, or just a few miles to the west and you can explore the quaint seaside town of Aberdyfi, or Borth with nearby Ynys Las with views over the estuary to Aberdyfi (you can even drive on the beach here!) or visit the seaside town of Aberystwyth with its historic promenade, cliff railway and the Rheidol narrow gauge railway or you can stop on the way back at the ominously named “Devils Bridge”…

As we said, it’s hard to know where to start...
