Experience the Welsh countryside
Bwlch Nant y Arian is an outstanding forest recreation centre in the heart of Mid Wales.
An award-winning attraction, Nant-yr-Arian is famous for the daily Red Kite feeding, which can be seen from the Visitor Centre or from many places around the lake.
For the more athletic, there are a number of marked walks and excellent cycle trails.
Take a trip to the seaside
When the tide is low Borth and Ynyslas have excellent golden sandy beaches.
Borth's award-winning beach is particularly popular with canoeing, fishing, sailing, surfing, motor boating, water skiing and sailboard enthusiasts - RNLI Lifeguards are in attendance during the summer holiday season - look out for the flags.
Ynyslas, with its excellent golden sandy beach, is about two miles north of Borth along the coast road and is particularly popular with shell collectors and kite flyers.
Call into the Ynyshir RSPB nature reserve on your way home and perhaps catch a glimpse of the elusive osprey.
Visit Mid Wales’ largest town
Aberystwyth's graceful sweeping seafront is a favourite with visitors and locals alike. Whenever you visit, you'll be likely to find the Promenade alive with walkers, joggers, bikers - and those who just want to relax by the seaside.
This vibrant university town has a wide range of lovely shops, fabulous restaurants and beach and promenade walks.
Constitution Hill marks the quieter northern end of the promenade and features an impressive cliff railway up to the viewpoints and camera obscura.
Aberystwyth Art Centre stages exhibitions all year round and the building is also home to a theatre and cinema.
The rugged peaks and velvet slopes that adorn the central Mid Wales uplands make the Cambrian Mountains one of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain. Running from north to south, these mountains straddle the counties of Powys and Ceredigion and are often described as the backbone of Wales.
A paradise for walkers and wildlife watchers alike, they are remarkably free of human intervention and afford their visitor some of the most enchanting environments this country has to offer.
Perfect for biking
The Rheidol Cycle Trail is a 28 km trail takes you from Aberystwyth to Devils Bridge alongside the famous steam train route.
Nant yr Arian has a selection of trails available from the Visitor Centre with the Syfydryn trail passing right through the middle of Moelgolomen farm. This is a stunning route through the heart of the wild welsh mountains.
