"Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time" ― Steven Wright
Walking in Mid Wales along diverse routes on a network of national trails and long distance uncrowded waymarked routes crossing the terrain from river valley to mountain peak is an exhilarating experience. You just need to bring your puff.
Paths and walks from or near Rhedyn:
The Epynt Way - a fifty-six mile walk through the army training ground; undisturbed spectacular views – don’t worry you won’t need flak jackets – the army uses tanks!
Irfon Valley and the Cambrian Mountains. Walk or cycle out through Beulah into Abergwesyn and into the ‘Welsh Alps’.
Have you ever tried a Real Ale Ramble? These ‘walks’ mark the beginning of the Mid Wales Beer Festival each year. The walks are strictly non competitive but are for you to enjoy as well as the free real ale provided at the checkpoints. Choice of distances are 15 and 28 miles each day.
There’s a great new cycle route running across the Brecon Beacons from Llandeilo in the West to Abergavenny in the East. It's fifty six miles long and follows an old Roman road. The views are stunning. You don't have to tackle it all in one go as it is broken down into five manageable sections.
Bike Hire. For £15 per day including recommended route maps, we have teamed up with John Lloyd Bikes in Builth Wells who will deliver your bikes to Rhedyn, ready for your adventure. Go as little or as far as you like.
The very first Mountain Bike Centre in the British Isles was opened in nearby Llanwrtyd Wells in 1985, the area still offers endless miles of natural and purpose built track, forest roads and bridleways to explore and enjoy. Perhaps a Real Ale Wobble might encourage those a little hesitant; with two checkpoints where you can exchange your token for a real ale, or why not try the World Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling Championships, just ask!
We have listed some interesting cycle ways below.
The Garn Off Road Loop at Llanwrtyd Wells or the Irfon Three Rivers Road Ride – either a gentle ride on quiet roads or a cycle through a forest and up The Devil’s Staircase with a gradient of 1.4 – there is a ride for all levels of puff. Just let us know – we’ll give you the map and be here to wave you off!
