Fishing in Mid Wales

Free fishing on the River Severn is available as part of your stay at the cabins (day licences are available in Newtown Post Office). There is coarse and game fishing - trout, salmon & grayling have been caught by previous visitors. There is other nearby fishing in mid Wales - for example at Llyn Clywedog.

Walking in Mid Wales

Walk the Severn Way - it is approximately 3 days walking to the source of the Severn from the cabins. Transport can be arranged for walking groups. In the other direction you can walk the Severn Way to Welshpool in a day, and get the bus or train back. Other options for walking in Mid Wales include the Kerry Ridgeway (a lovely 15 mile walk from above Newtown to Bishop's Castle), Offa's Dyke path, Glyndwrs Way and the source of the Wye. There is a folder of local walks and an ordnance survey map in the cabin.  This is an excellent base for walking in mid Wales.
