Lush Landscapes of Mid Wales

Mid Wales is bordered by the two stunning national parks, the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia and is also home to glorious castles, gardens and railways – discover some of them from our base at the fantastic Metropole Hotel.

Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Llandrindod Wells & Abbey-Cwm-Hir
After spending the morning at leisure we make our way after lunch to Abbey-Cwm-Hir, one of Wales’ finest examples of Victorian Gothic revival architecture. We enjoy a private guided tour of the house by Paul, Victoria or a close family member.

Day 3 Powis Castle & Garden
This morning, we visit impressive Powis Castle which began life as a medieval fortress. We spend time at leisure exploring the magnificent collections contained in the castle and its world-famous garden as well as a superb collection of treasures from India displayed in the Clive Museum.

Day 4 Vale of Rheidol Railway & Aberystwyth
Today we travel to the popular seaside resort of Aberystwyth to board the Vale of Rheidol Railway for a nostalgic 12 mile journey to Devil’s Bridge, home to the famous waterfalls.

We spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure exploring Aberystwyth’s many attractions which include the longest electric cliff railway in Britain.
