Llanerchaeron Georgian villa and gardens

 

20 minutes from the park

 

There’s a lot to take in at the National Trust owned Llanerchaeron. This minor gentry estate is largely unchanged since the 18th century, when John Nash designed its villa and walled kitchen gardens. Meet sheep, pigs and Welsh black cattle on the working organic farm or wander around artefacts left by its last resident 25 years ago.

 

 

Vale of Rheidol Railway

Opened to the public in 1902, it’s one of the most scenic narrow gauge routes in the world. The last steam railway owned by British Rail before being privatised in 1989, it’s now a gentle way to wind through stop-off points from Devil’s Bridge to Aberystwyth.
