Rob says...
“The Metropole is impressive inside and out; owned and run by the same family for generations the hotel is rich in tradition and elegance.”
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 in our lovely hotel or strolling into the village, we make our way after lunch to Abbey-Cwm-Hir, one of Wales’ finest examples of Victorian Gothic revival architecture. Paul and Victoria Humpherston bought the Hall in late 1997 and spent 9 years restoring it to its original Gothic splendour and it is now renowned for its stunning interiors and fascinating collections. We enjoy a private guided tour of the house and estate by Paul, Victoria or a close family member.

Day 3 Powis Castle & Garden (NT)
This morning, we visit Powis Castle which began life as a medieval fortress. We spend time exploring the magnificent collections contained in the castle and its worldfamous garden, with spectacular yew hedges and lavish herbaceous borders, 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 where we board the Vale of Rheidol Railway (past winner of Coach Friendly Heritage Railway of the year) for a nostalgic journey through some of Wales’ most spectacular scenery. During our 3 hour round trip our narrow gauge steam locomotive climbs 700ft during the 11¾ mile journey from Aberystwyth to Devil's Bridge. In the afternoon we enjoy free time exploring Aberystwyth’s many attractions, including the harbour, pier, beach, castle and the longest electric cliff railway in Britain.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
