Mid-Wales is the place for adventure seekers! With epic mountains surrounded by rolling countryside, Mid-wales is riddled with hikes, walks and mountain expeditions suitable for any ability.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is loved for its big green open spaces which offer miles and miles of wonderful walking. Choose to stroll alongside rivers, canals and reservoirs, or dare to tackle South Wales’ tallest mountain, Pen Y Fan.

Nestled between the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia Nestled between Snowdonia lies the wonderous Cambrian Mountains. This mountain range has a variety of walking trails, exploring gentle woodland and tumbling waterfalls or more challenging walks in the vast expanse of moorland and upland lakes, rewarded with the view of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons from a different perspective.

North Wales

Last but certainly not least, North Wales. With rugged mountain ranges, historic castles and stretching coastlines, there’s a little bit of everything up North.

The main attraction of the Snowdonia National Park is of course Snowdon. Peaking at 1,085m, the mountain compensates for its treacherous expedition with astounding views, stretching all the way down to Pembrokeshire, up to England’s Peak District and even across to Ireland. If you’re not up for the hike, the Snowdon Mountain Railway chuggs up to the summit from late Spring to the end of October, where you can take in the views and enjoy refreshments from the visitor centre.

Known for its beaches and ancient sites, the Isle of Anglesey is accessed by the 19th-century Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge, rebuilt in the 20th century. With stunning landscapes, unspoilt coastlines and picturesque towns and villages that are just waiting to be explored and miles of scenic walks on the coastal path, Anglesey is a truly special Welsh location. With that being said, it only makes sense to stay in our most unique accommodation, The Windmill.
