It’s likely that if you’ve chosen a holiday or caravan park in Mid Wales for your holiday, it’s because of the fantastic views and peaceful surroundings that the area can offer. Summer is on its way, making it the best time of year to get out exploring this wonderful area.
Whilst Mid Wales has very much its fair share in peaceful and tranquil areas, there are still a variety of entertaining activities to try and interesting attractions to visit whilst you’re here on your holidays.
If you’ve already visited before, it’s likely that you’ve already seen Powis Castle and its magnificent gardens. If not, they’re certainly well worth a visit during your stay, especially as they are located just a fifteen minute drive away from the park.
If you’re looking to see more of the Welsh countryside without having to take on a long and tiring trek, boat trips along the Montgomery Canal are a great way to observe the abundance of nature found within this rural area.
The canal boat trips typically last around two and a half hours, or you can opt for the adventure cruise trips which take you on a half day journey along the canal. The canal is a haven for wildlife, so make sure to keep an eye out for otters and water voles which have previously been spotted in the area.
A short distance from our park is Llyn Coed y Dinas. This lake which was created from a gravel pit is home to a variety of bird species throughout the year, which can often include Canada geese, Mandarin ducks and wigeon.
If you’d like to find out more about the history of Mid Wales, and Welshpool in particular, the Powysland Museum offers a great insight into the residents of the area – with evidence of early prehistoric settlers and the first farmers during the Neolithic period.
The Maesfron Hall and Gardens are just a short drive away from the park, around fifteen minutes. This Georgian house styled in the design of an Italian village is partly open to guests, and it is also home to a variety of gardens and terraces, including a tropical garden.
Nearby are a variety of woodland walks, which are wonderful for an afternoon stroll during the summer months.
