Your cottage will not be ready until 4 pm and when you leave our cleaners arrive at 10am so why not make the most of your travel days? 

The motorways maybe quick but there are more interesting routes:-
• A drive along the coast road from Aberystwyth
• Along the A40 via the Brecon Beacons National Park, Brecon and Llandovery
• Via Rhayader, the Elan Reservoirs and the Ystwyth Valley.
• Across the Cambrian Mountains via Llandovery, Llyn Brianne & Tregaron
• Via Chester & Bala (picnic spot, café and dog walking by the lake heading south LHS)

If you do chose to come along the M4 then there are some nice places to stop just off the motorway included.

There are some great places to stop, stretch your legs & visit along the way.  Many are children & dog friendly.
