Your COVID-19 guide to Mid Wales

At the moment, there are travel restrictions in place in Wales to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

There are different restrictions in place, depending on whether you live outside or inside Wales.


If you do not live in Wales, travel into Wales is not allowed without a reasonable excuse (for example, travelling for work purposes).

Visiting family and friends or having a holiday is not currently considered a reasonable excuse, although we hope to be able to welcome you in the not too distant future.

Making future accommodation bookings and reservations

Yes, you can make bookings, however, bookings are subject to future conditions and are made at your own risk. Cancellation policies should be discussed prior to booking.

Visiting from inside Wales

If you live within Wales, the travel restriction on movement within Wales has been lifted.

You are allowed to go on holiday within Wales if you live here.

Who can I stay with in holiday accommodation such as hotels, tents, caravans or self-catering accommodation?

You will only be able to share holiday accommodation with the people you live with.

This helps to reduce the risk of coronavirus being transmitted significantly, as sleeping in close proximity to other people carries a high risk of transmission due to the length of time you spend near each other.
