DARK SKIES & THE CAMBRIAN MOUNTAINS
The experts on the dark skies in this magical area, just follow the link on this website. https://www.thecambrianmountains.co.uk/discover-dark-skies
The Cambrian Mountains are brimming with nature from birds to mammals, flora to fauna, woodland to riverbank.
Visit as many of the nature reserves as you can and you'll be amazed at what is on offer. Watch out for the many red kites soaring above, and the occasional buzzard or even an osprey.
The Machynlleth area has history, heritage and culture around every corner. From choral sing and competing in Eisteddfodau to sheep dog trials and agricultural shows, the landscape has brought people together to socialise so much over the centuries and still does.
There are churches and chapels that have their own stories to tell too. Whilst agriculture has been the mainstay of the landscape for generations, small-scale industrial work has been carried out in remote lead, silver and gold mines. With a trained eye these places can be spotted and even experienced as visitor attractions. The legacy of the woollen industry remains alive too and there are many places where you can see and buy welsh blankets and quilts.
Owain Glyndŵr Centre Machynlleth
Crowned by a splendid Victorian clock tower, Heol Maengwyn is Machynlleth’s high street. It’s sprinkled with useful shops, galleries, cosy cafés and, on Wednesdays, market stalls, a tradition launched by royal charter in 1291. It was also the site of national hero Owain Glyndŵr’s 1404 parliament - the original Senedd. The Owain Glyndŵr Centre is the local history museum that tells his story.
MOMA Machynlleth is an intimate museum of modern art in a Victorian town house and a former Wesleyan chapel, The Tabernacle, has a hefty collection of local treasures. Its white-walled exhibition spaces show contemporary Welsh paintings, prints, sculpture and photography. Arty types refuel over top notch coffee and cake at Y Tabernacl Coffee Shop.
Shopping and Eating Out
Machynlleth is truly a gem, a rural market town with a quirky, eco-friendly vibe. There's loads to do and see just wandering around. There are plenty of cafe's, restaurants and antique shops, alternative lifestyle shops and galleries featuring local artists and craftspeople. There's a bustling market on Wednesdays and the annual world famous Machynlleth
If you're looking for laughs you probably wouldn't think of heading to a comedy festival in the ancient capital of Wales. But we'd absolutely recommend that you do. Over the May bank holiday every year, the cream of comedy talent from across the UK descend on Machynlleth to try out new material, experiment with new formats, and generally have a great time.
Mountain biking in the Dyfi Valley
Machynlleth is the perfect launch pad for an adventure on two wheels, thanks to Dyfi Mountain Biking, an enthusiastic group of local volunteers. They’ve waymarked three routes called Mach 1, 2 and 3 along roads, lanes and bridleways, and created CliMachX, an exhilarating off-road forest trail with rocky jumps and a massive final descent.
The Centre for Alternative Technology
In 1974, long before green principles became mainstream, a small group of eco-enthusiasts created the Centre for Alternative Technology (or CAT, as it's affectionately known) in an old slate quarry, three miles north of Machynlleth. It was unique, and inspired a generation. Today, the centre’s beautiful School of the Environment runs excellent day courses, postgraduate courses and distance learning on practical topics such as earth ovens, composting toilets, raw food, upcycling, traditional crafts and harnessing renewable energy.
Dyfi Osprey Project
The Dyfi Osprey Project, a love nest for ospreys, is the work of dedicated conservationists, whose work is featured on BBC Springwatch. While the migrants are in residence roughly from April to September, you can view them through scopes, binoculars or live on screen. A two-storey observatory hut with views over bird, mammal and insect habitats is also open for visitors all year round.
RSPB Ynys-hir Nature Reserve
If you’re a fan of BBC Springwatch, you’ll enjoy the Welsh woodland and wetland reserve where it was filmed several times. At Ynys-hir you might even make some seasonal discoveries of your own. Spring brings carpets of bluebells and trilling wood warblers, autumn brings ducks and other water birds can be seen from the hides all year round. Follow the trails to explore the lowland wet grasslands, reedbed, and saltmarsh habitats.
Falconry Experience Wales
In the wilds of the Dyfi Valley UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Falconry Experience Wales is one of several sites in mid Wales where you can learn about birds of prey. Run by experienced falconers, it’s a place to get close – very close – to captive-bred owls, falcons, hawks, eagles and red kites, discovering how to handle them and taking them out to fly over the hills.
Corris Mine Explorers
There’s plenty to you entertained at Corris Mine Explorers, based at Corris Craft Centre. Kit up in a hard hat for a fascinating tour of an abandoned slate mine, take a boat trip through an underground maze while listening to tales from long ago in King Arthur's Labyrinth.
The Corris Railway is a narrow-gauge railway, lovingly restored by local railway enthusiasts. They have one of the prettiest steam locomotives in Wales, specially built in 2005 to a classic Kerr, Stuart and Company design. On a 50-minute round trip, it puffs through the former slate-mining region between Corris and Maespoeth, stopping for a tour of the engine shed and workshops.
