Summer in Mid Wales at Llangoed Hall
2 May 2014
Wye Valley Walking, Royal Welsh Show, Hay-on-Wye, Croquet
Llangoed Hall is located in a privileged location in the heart of Wales. Nestled in the Wye Valley, this Jacobean manor house forms the perfect backdrop for exploring the Wye Valley, visiting the 2014 Royal Welsh Show just 9 miles from the hotel and discovering the world-famous book town of Hay-on-Wye just 5 miles from the hotel.
Wye Valley Walking
As you walk out of Llangoed Hall (with the hotel’s very own ‘Stroll Guide’), you reach the long distance path that follows the route of the River Wye, the UK’s fifth longest river. Along the path walkers encounter several fields ideal for picnics. Walkers also pass traditional cottages and later arrive at a metal ‘kissing gate’. A narrow suspension bridge soon takes walkers on a long stroll along the stunning river.
The famous Hay Festival which brings together writers from across the world to debate takes place each year in this pretty village. This year the Hay International Literary Festival is held between 22nd May and 1st June. This book town is a wonderful half day trip by car throughout the year and is located close to Llangoed Hall and once reached is perfect for a leisurely walk and lunch.
Royal Welsh Show
Between 21st and 24th July, the Royal Welsh Show will showcase the best of Welsh livestock and the high quality food and drink produced in Wales which over recent years has received much interest. Activities include forestry, horticulture, crafts, countryside sports, a Sports Village and a 12 hour programme of exciting entertainment that continues throughout each of the four days of the event.

Llangoed Hall Gardens & Croquet Lawn
The Walled Garden with mixed herbaceous borders, Rose Garden and Maze are all exciting spots to explore or sit in and read a book at Llangoed Hall. Visitors can also pop by the Chicken, Quail and Duck houses within the 17 acres of breathtakingly beautiful landscaped gardens. A Croquet Lawn at the back of Llangoed Hall can be enjoyed by all with the option to take afternoon tea outside on the terrace.
Llangoed Hall’s 23 bedrooms all have beautiful views of the surrounding Welsh countryside. The hotel is the AA Hotel of the Year Wales 2014 and was also awarded ‘Best Restaurant 2014’ at the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence. Head chef Nick Brodie has created a selection of menus that celebrate Welsh cuisine using local produce.
