Exploring the UK

Mid Wales


The area of Mid Wales is a paradise for walkers and climbers with the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons and the Southern Snowdonia region, part of the Cambrian Mountain range. Although the area is generally sparsely populated there is a wide range of accommodation that is available to the weekend visitor ranging through B&B accommodation, farmhouse and camping sites for those hikers and climbers and also delightful coastal hotels and guest houses.

The Dyfed area is a lovely contrast with some of the best coastal regions dominated by Aberystwyth and Cardigan. It is Britain's only truly coastal National Park, covering 240 sq miles of spectacular landscape around Wales' south-western shore. Its stunning scenery, wealth of wildlife and fascinating history make it a very special place to explore and enjoy, the National Park boasts some of the most spectacular scenery and diverse wildlife in Britain. The Pembrokeshire Coast national Park begins just south of the river Teifi, with the Ceredigion Heritage Coast to the north and, inland, the lush green pastures of the Teifi valley which is the home of the Welsh Woollen mills. The town of Cardigan is an ideal base from which to explore southern Ceredigion and northern Pembrokeshire.

With over 800 places to stay, there is accommodation to suit all tastes and pockets.
