Mid Wales? That’s, er – yes, that bit in the middle where sheep outnumber people, there are no motorways or dual carriageways, no sprawling towns and very little in the way of rush hours! So it’s the quietest region of Wales and Wales Cottage Holidays visitors love it that way.

Stay in a lovely cottage in Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons and find out more about the unspoilt nature of the area, with its beautiful peaceful scenery and ancient market towns. Quiet it may be but there’s a wealth of events and festivities to take part in throughout the year.

Here are a few ideas for the coming months:

20 mile Race in the Elan Valley
