MONDAY DAY 2

This morning we begin with a drive to the Elan Valley and the Dams Visitor Centre for a short break. We return to Llandrindod Wells in time to purchase lunch. This afternoon we visit the beautiful Hall at Abbey-Cwm-Hir. In a setting of history and romance the Hall and its 12 acres overlook St Mary's church and the ruins of the 12th century 'Abbey of the Long Valley'. Each of the 52 rooms in the Hall contain their original features. The house bursts with interior design ideas from bygone times and a variety of
collectables. There is much to see including the stunning gardens, with walled garden, lawns, terraces, superb flowers, a lake and waterfall.

TUESDAY DAY 3

An early start as we have a full day excursion to Aberystwyth and the Vale of Rheidol Railway. We catch the morning train along the former Great Western line to Devil's Bridge - this was the last route to operate steam trains for British Rail, the line passed into private ownership in 1989. A short walk from the terminus brings you to the spectacular Mynach Falls. We take a break at Devil's Bridge and have time for refreshments before catching the return train to Aberystwyth.

WEDNESDAY DAY 4

Our day begins travelling north to Welshpool for a break and chance to explore before continuing to the magnificent Powys Castle and Garden. Laid out under influence of Italian and French style, the famous garden has original statues, orangery and an aviary on the terraces. Perched on a rock above the garden terraces, the medieval castle contains one of the finest collections of
paintings and furniture in Wales. Finally, we have a short break in Knighton before returning past Glog Hill.
