Royal Welsh Show Ground 

The Royal Welsh Show Ground is located just 8 miles from Church House Farm, in Llanelwedd, and is host to a variety of events throughout the year including the popular Royal Welsh Agricultural Show in July which attracts thousands of visitors, as well as the Spring and Winter Fairs. Various antiques fairs as well as dog and horse shows are also on over the course of the year.

Elan Valley Dams

The picturesque Dams are a haven for walking and cycling enthusiasts as they provide stunning scenery while you wind through the hills and slopes of the Elan Valley. The Dams were built a hundred years ago to provide water to the city of Birmingham and still fully function to this day. Whilst visiting you can also see where the bouncing bombs were trialed. You can follow the old Aberystwyth road, visiting Devils bridge with its waterfall and maybe catch the steam train into Aberystwyth. The beautiful red kites have made a comeback in the area and can be viewed daily feeding at the Red Kite centre at Gigrin Farm.

 

For those willing to travel slightly further, we have the the narrow gauge steam train, Powis Castle and Coed Y Dinas at Welshpool. Hay on Wye, known as the town of books, is the host to the literature festival in May. Brecon Beacons National Park, offers walking, cycling, and is one of only 7 dark sky reserves. The Cathedral City of Hereford is less than an hour away, with its cider museummappa mundi, the largest medieval map known to exist and great shopping. Ludlow offers an abundance of antique shops, the new food centre, and an active summer programme of events held at the castle.
