Taking in the town

Discovering the valley

For a taste of fresh air and stunning scenery head out into the Dyfi Valley, with its emerald meadows and babbling brooks, is a walker’s paradise. The Tan y Coed trail is a particular gem, leading you through ancient woodlands, past a cascading waterfall, and even a secret rock passage!
