Mid Wales Inland: Rivers, Lakes, Mountains and Market Towns

The 'Mid Wales Marches' refers to the border between the Mid Wales region and England. This area is famed for the quality of its local produce, castles, country houses and garden attractions, attractive market towns and excellant walking and cycling routes; not to be missed.

The central Mid Wales uplands - the 'Cambrian Mountains' is one of the great upspoilt landscapes in Britain and the source of two major rivers - the River Wye and Rivern Severn. 

In the north of the region you will find Lake Vyrnwy and the southern foothills of the Berwyn Mountains. 

The area has a number of significant market towns; Machynlleth the ancient capital of Wales and the heart of the Dyfi Biosphere; Devil’s Bridge and the surrounding area that has been extensively featured in the BBC Hinterland series; Rhayader & the Elan Valley, Llanidloes, Montgomery and Tregaron are popular market towns.

The region also boasts two national parks; Snowdonia National Park and the Brecon Beacons National Park
