The Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells ~ 4 Star
"The highest Visit Wales rated hotel and spa in Mid-Wales. Privately owned and run by 5th generation family for over 120 years. Perfect venue for a wedding, events, groups, spa days, afternoon teas and short breaks in Wales."
- We enjoy a morning coach tour of the Elan Valley Estate, when one of the Ranger’s joins our coach and escorts us on a 90-minute coach tour of the Estate where we can discover some of the Valley’s hidden secrets and learn more about the wide range of wildlife. We then make our way to the Visitor Centre where we have chance to explore. Following this visit we return to Llandrindod Wells where the rest of the day is at leisure.
- We head to the Ceredigion Heritage Coast and the Victorian seaside resort of Aberystwyth, which is home to the National Library of Wales. We enjoy some free time before our nostalgic journey through some wonderful scenery on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to Devil’s Bridge.
- We experience the beautiful and diverse scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park as we make our way to Brecon, with its medieval cathedral and narrow streets full of craft & antique shops. While here we enjoy a relaxing cruise through a lock and over an aqueduct on the historical Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, a fantastic feat of engineering which was built before roads and railways. Upon re-joining our coach, we continue to Hay-on-Wye giving time to explore before returning to the hotel.
