Straight out of your front door there are some wonderful walks here at Llwyn Madoc. You just need some sturdy footwear and a map and you can go for miles walking – we can walk from here to the Elan Valley in a few hours. We just ask everyone to stick to paths and close gates. We have the hazards of sheep and pheasant pens to be mindful of on the estate.
It would take days to list all the wonderful walks within reach of us but I am listing a few you to consider.
The Brecon Beacons – visible from us on a clear day, these hardly need an introduction. Famous peaks home to hundreds of great walk – some very tough, others meandering past mountain streams and offering stunning views after a short ramble from your car.
The Wye Valley Walk – an easy-grade, continuous walking trail that traces the River Wye from Chepstow to Rhayader, for the more adventurous it then continues to the source of the river near Pumlumon in the Cambrian mountains about Aberystwyth.
Glyndwr’s Way – this National Trail is in the Cambrian Mountains and is dedicated to the 15th Century Welsh Warrior. The 135-mile route takes you through rolling farmland and ancient forests, past reservoirs and open moorland with extraordinary views.
The Severn Way Walk – this waymarked route goes from the source of the River Severn, all the way to the estuary near Bristol. Passing through Llanidloes and Newtown, you can find great sections to explore during your stay at Llwyn Madoc.
The Elan Valley – this is 72 square miles of captivating landscape – a series of 6 dams, with some excellent walking, or where you can just stroll, picnic or bike. Days of entertainment with wonderful wildlife, views and activities.
