Whilst one of the appeals of our peaceful, rural setting is the option to kick back in the hot tub and do absolutely nothing, no doubt when you visit your luxury holiday lodge time and again you’ll also want to explore your surroundings at some point. Luckily, there’s no shortage of things to see and do within easy reach of your luxurious base.


Here at Luxury Lodges Wales we’re perfectly situated for you to enjoy the great outdoors on foot with a great range of walking routes nearby, including the Glyndwr’s Way trail and the Offa’s Dyke national trail, which runs along the Welsh / English border. And with the Cambrian mountains, Snowdonia National Park and the Welsh coastline all within easy day trip reach, there’s no shortage of opportunities to get your walking boots on.

If you prefer getting your exercise on two wheels then you’re also in luck, as we’re also surrounded by great road and mountain bike trails, including Coed y Brenin. Located just over an hour away, it was Britain’s first purpose-built mountain biking centre and has tracks catering for everything from family bike rides to expert riders. For less avid cyclists (or if you just don’t want the hassle of loading the bikes) you can even hire bikes for the day.


Other high-octane activities available nearby include quad biking, go-karting, paint-balling, pony trekking, a rally school, the Yamaha Motorcycle Experience at Llanidloes and activities out on the water including sailing, canoeing and various watersports.

If you’re more interested in expanding your knowledge than getting the adrenalin pumping, then why not immerse yourself in Mid Wales’ local history? From the National Trust’s famous Powys Castle to maritime heritage, pre-historic hill forts, local museums and heritage steam railways, there’s no shortage of things to discover, learn about and experience to enrich your mind and really get under the skin of your new home from home and our local area.

The Shropshire border towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow are just down the road, whilst for those seeking the coast Aberystwyth, Aberdyfi and Barmouth are all easily accessible by car. Or get close to nature at the Clywedog reservoir, and the Hafren Forest, leading to the source of the Rivers Severn and Wye, Elan Valley Lakes and Lake Vyrnwy.

And, of course, when you’ve ticked off something from above, there’s always that hot tub to unwind in at the end of the day.
