4 Days in Mid Wales - Day 1

A four-day circular tour of beautiful Mid Wales - perfect for a family holiday.

Four days? To cover all of Mid Wales? Are you mad? We cheerfully admit that it can’t be done. The area’s simply too big and there’s too much to do. You could spend a week pottering the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, or searching for the perfect beach on Cardigan Bay, or getting utterly lost - in the best possible way - among the Cambrian Mountains.

MorningMorning

Day 1 in the Brecon Beacons National Park. There are three mountain ranges that make up the 519 square miles of this glorious Park. The central range – the Brecon Beacons themselves – have the highest peaks in southern Britain, but even the highest, Pen y Fan, is just an hour’s walk from the road, and we regularly see young children on the summit, looking mightily chuffed with themselves. To the east, the Black Mountains (plural) fall away towards the English border; to the west, the lonely Black Mountain (singular – confusing, isn’t it?) stands tall over the Towy Valley. A family favourite is the Waterfall Country north of Neath, which includes waterfalls you can actually walk behind. And which child doesn’t find that amazing?
