Welshpool, is home to Powys Castle, one of the country’s finest fortresses and certainly not an attraction to miss. Filled with history and mythology, there are many fun days to be had exploring old ruins. What’s more, the Cambrian Coast offers wide sandy beaches and small coves that gives you a sense of peacefulness and exploration.

After a day of rambling in the wild countryside, you can even retreat to a glamorous camping pod where you can capture a glimpse of the starry night sky.
