Things To See And Do

| Print |
Sample of some Attractions in the Area Brynafon is nestled in the heart of Wales and taps out a beat all of its own! You can set the pace with so much on offer from cycling, mountain biking, pony trekking, fishing, canoeing to birdwatching and walking. The area is drenched in history and Rhayader itself dates back to the 5th Century. As an important market town Rhayader is in easy distance of many towns including Aberystwyth, Abergavenny, Llanidloes, Shrewsbury, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, and Welshpool. Nowhere can you escape the natural beauty of the region with the Elan Valley Lakes to the West, Brecon National Park to the South, Nannerth Falls in the North and the green and pleasant lands of Shropshire and Herefordshire on the East. The River Wye gently winds it's way through quaint villages and magnificent pastoral scenes giving rise to a restfulness that has been revered for centuries.

In the immediate vicinity we have:
