Hereford

Walkers describe the Herefordshire countryside as breathtaking, foodies enthuse about the quality of produce, adrenalin seekers rave about the rock faces and River Wye rapids. With festivals, celebrations and events to excite every passion and awaken every sense. Then there’s the culturally captivated, who take time to live, breathe and absorb art, history, poetry and literature.

From the market towns of Leominster, Bromyard, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye and Kington, to Hereford city, the Black & White villages, cider producers, castles, hops and Hereford cattle, there is something for everyone.

Why not take a picnic prepared by yourself in the comfort of your own lodge, with snacks and a tipple from our Ashlea Pools shop?

Hereford is a great day out for all the family, and is just an hour away from Ashlea Pools in the car.

Snowdonia Climbing Centre

If you’re feeling fit and energetic, climbing Snowdonia is a must-do activity when you are visiting the national park.

Located two hours from Ashlea Pools, you will find the Snowdonia Climbing Centre, where you can start your ascent, enjoying some of the most stunning natural scenery in Wales on the way up.

The Snowdonia Climbing Centre offers mountaineering courses, guiding and tuition for activities including rock climbing, scrambling, navigation and much more, there is something for all abilities and ages.

After all that climbing where better to relax than in the comfort of your own hot tub back at your Ashlea Pools lodge?

Brecon Beacons

With mountains and moorland, standing stones and castles, lively waterfalls and vibrant communities, the Brecon Beacons National Park has masses to offer to guests of Ashlea Pools Lodge Park.

The National Park is around 42 miles wide. In total, it covers approximately 520 square miles of South and Mid Wales, just west of Herefordshire, and includes parts of Powys, Carmarthenshire, Monmouthshire, Rhondda and Merthyr Tydfil. It gets its name from the Central Beacons, which dominate the skyline south of Brecon. They rise to 886 metres at Pen y Fan, the highest peak in southern Britain.

A longer drive of 1 hour 20 minutes from Ashlea Pools will get you to the Brecon Beacons where you can start your adventure whether its walking, white-water rafting or Geocaching.

Elan Valley

There are many reasons to visit Elan Valley. Part of the rugged Cambrian Mountains, Elan is a beautiful and unspoilt area made even more compelling by the dams and reservoirs which together create a wonderful, living landscape. The views are stunning and you are never far away from points of interest.

Elan is a haven for wildlife, one of the most important sites in Wales and there is always something to warm the heart throughout the year. You will marvel at the engineering enterprise of the Victorians in building the dams and the railways which served their construction.

Driving to Elan Valley from Ashlea Pools will take one hour, but don’t be put off because this is a fantastic day out for all the family, to enjoy the nature and beautiful scenery.

You could even go to the Red Kite Feeding on the way.
