Cwmbiga in Winter

This Winter feels like it has been particularly long! We have been snowed in on three separate occasions, which is very unusual.

 It did make everything very atmospheric before Christmas:

Although in March with the 'Beast from the East' the amount of snow took us by surprise - this was the road into Llanidloes:

Steam railways

We happen to be surrounded by steam railways in Powys and the surrounding areas and so we took the opportunity to travel on one today seeing as the weather was so nice and sunny.

As we have little children, we took the option to go on a short trip from Llanfair Caereinion to Castell Caereinion and back again. You can organise your journey on the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway here.

Stargazing

We like to walk the walk here at Cwmbiga - we often try out experiences and attractions so we can recommend them to our guests. One of our recent visits was to an event organised by Dark Sky Wales. A very enjoyable evening was spent looking at one of the most criminally-overlooked features of Mid Wales...our beautiful night skies.

Mach Loop Accommodation

The Hafren Forest is an incredibly peaceful place to live, work and relax. However, one weekday morning or afternoon, out of the blue, you may experience something very unique to this part of the world - the RAF and the US Air Force completing their low-level flight training! An incredible noise will alert you to the aeroplanes' presence, and if you're very lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a flash of a jet as it screams past on its way to the 'Mach Loop' or Machynlleth Loop, where planes will often fly only 250 feet off the ground.

Dog-friendly holiday cottages

 

As dog-lovers ourselves, we understand that leaving your pet behind when on holiday sometimes isn't an option. As there is so much beautiful countryside to explore while you're here, it would be a shame if they couldn't join you! Our dog-friendly holiday cottages provide the perfect place for you and your pet to holiday in Mid Wales.

Birdwatching at Cwmbiga

With the cold weather, days of snow and lots of rain recently, the birds have been making the most of our feeders here. We have spotted over 80 species of birds on our land, making it the perfect location for a birdwatching holiday.
