Cottages in the Mid Wales and Brecon Beacons area
With rolling green hills and miles of peaceful countryside, a holiday in unspoilt Mid Wales is one where you can be sure to unwind and relax. Perfect for getting away from it all and exploring the great outdoors in breathtaking scenery, it's an ideal destination for walking, trekking, fishing and birdwatching.
Mid Wales is home to the spectacular Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons National Park, where you can experience outdoor activities galore. Walking, hiking up the mountains, caving, cycling, horse riding, gliding, rock climbing – take things at your own pace and make your visit as leisurely or as challenging as you wish! The Brecon Beacons is also the only International Dark Sky Reserve in Wales, with some of the highest quality dark skies in the whole of the UK.
From here, you can see just about everything. So wrap up warm and prepare to be blown away by the amazing view of the Milky Way, constellations and even meteor showers. Take a tour of the area and visit the quaint market towns dotted around the region or enjoy one of the great days out at Powis Castle and gardens, the steam railways at Welshpool and Brecon, feeding the red kites near Rhayader and, if you're visiting in May or July, the outstanding Literary Festival at Hay-on-Wye and Royal Welsh Agricultural Show at Builth Wells.
With all this and more on offer, choose a cottage in Mid Wales for a holiday to remember.
