The Elan Valley offers a brilliant escape from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. As well as being mostly off-grid, the estate also has limited mobile reception and wifi. It offers visitors the opportunity to ‘go offline’ and focus instead on the wonders of the landscape and wildlife of the area.
The estate has also been awarded International Dark Sky Park status making it an ideal spot for stargazers.
And don’t forget, taking a short break or holiday truly allows you to take advantage of the awesome walking and cycling opportunities of the Elan Valley and Mid Wales.
If you are planning a short break or holiday in Mid Wales, there is no better place to stay than right here on the Elan Estate.
The Elan Valley Trust has a range of self-catering cottages set in the heart of the estate. For shorter stays, you can enjoy the charming Penbont House & Tearoom which provides excellent 4-Star-Visit-Wales, bed and breakfast accommodation nestled close to the Pen-y-Garreg dam. To find out more, visit the Elan Valley Trust website.
Other accommodation includes the newly refurbished Elan Valley Hotel and the caravan and campsite Elan Oaks. For the more adventurous, the 5-Star Elan Valley Lodge offers leisure breaks and activities.
