Drive west and discover the Dyfi Estuary, stunningly beautiful beaches at Aberdyfi and Tywyn - a mere 15 minutes from Plas Talgarth. The huge sand dunes offer shelter for picnics or the perfect location for hide and seek! Both beaches offer a range of water sports including paddle boarding and kite surfing.

Nearby attractions include the very popular King Arthur's Labyrinth, an underground family attraction with boats, lakes, waterfalls and caves! Railway enthusiasts will love Talyllyn Railway, a historic narrow-gauge steam railway running from the coast into unspoilt Snowdonia and just 20 minutes from the resort.

Heading a little further and you can truly explore both the Snowdonia National Park, the Ceredigion Heritage Coast along Cardigan Bay, the Cambrian Mountains and not forgetting the lakes...
