If you have time or wish to travel further afield then take note of some of these day excursions.
These feature Reservoirs and Abbeys and seaside towns.
Note that while reservoir areas are very mountainous, remote, and scenic, with good walks around them, they can be wet and rainy - which is why there are reservoirs! So if you are caught on a rainy day here, you may be discouraged from going out. Do not despair. Head South a few miles and you often find some sun - see Gower on next section.
See the below links where we feature the walks and days out with detailed guides and descriptions:
Elan Village Reservoirs - excellent drive and walking scenery, plus an informative visitors centre and tea shop
Llyn Brianne Reservoir - including some interesting villages you can pass through on the way, more scenery and walks
Talybont on Usk Reservoir - near Brecon, down a few lanes, not so easy to circumnavigate due to lack of a path all the way around, but you can go up one side and back again, or cheat as we do and go through some farmers fields on the way back. Worth a visit if you are up Brecon way.
Tenby Town and Bay - quite a hike - a good hour or more's drive, but worth visiting. Weather tends to be good here too. One of Wales's best little seaside towns. Almost like going back in time, to how the seaside towns in England should have developed in order to preserve themselves.
Talley Abbey and Forest - a hidden gem - lovely walk through a forest up to top of a hill with excellent views. Abbey is worth a wander through, but you need to do the Mountain Walk as well (2 hours) to justify the trip. Definitely need Sat Nav to find it.
Laugharne Castle and Dylan Thomas Centre - another worthwhile trip which you might not otherwise consider making from the Castle. It is some distance but a worthwhile day out.
