Our local area

We are very fortunate to be situated nearby the incredible Lake Vyrnwy and Vyrnwy dam.

In the forest you will also find the Rainbow Trails for horse-riding, carriage-driving, cycling and walking.

The forest is also fantastic terrain for cycling and mountain-biking.  You can hire a bike easily from these two places situated near Lake Vyrnwy.

These are some of the other attractions that we are close to:-

Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway

Lake Bala

Snowdon, Gwynedd.
Wales’ highest summit (1085 metres). There is a café at the peak, and also the Snowdon Mountain Railway.

Llangollen Railway, Denbighshire
Heritage railway that runs for 10 miles between Llangollen and Corwen following the beautiful Dee Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Plas Newydd House Museum and Gardens, Denbighshire
Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby – the ‘Ladies of Llangollen’ turned this modest cottage into a large Gothic-style home which was visited by the likes of poet William Wordsworth and the Duke of Wellington. It features oak carvings collected by Eleanor, as well as rustic bridges and a ‘ruined’ archway.

Chirk Castle, Wrexham
Built during King Edward I’s campaign to subdue the Welsh, Chirk castle is lavishly decorated and features a 17th Century Long Gallery and 1920’s style Bow Room.
