Accessible Attractions for All in Mid Wales

There’s a world of accessible things to do in Mid Wales. All of our visitors to Penrhos Park can enjoy everything from bird spotting and boat rides to woodland trails and beautiful beaches. Mid Wales offers adventures for everyone, so read on to find out more about just some of the places and attractions you can visit, during your stay with us this summer.

MOMA Machynlleth

MOMA can be found in a former Victorian townhouse and Wesleyan chapel, and while it is known as a vibrant performance venue, it is also home to a gallery of contemporary Welsh paintings, photography and sculptures. When the historical building was first converted, thought and care was taken to make it as accessible as possible, with level access to all galleries. It also has an accessible lift.


National Library of Wales

The National Library of Wales has a huge and varied collection, including rare manuscripts from the histories of Welsh literature. The library fully accessible, with four designated parking spaces, automatic main doors, lifts, accessible toilets, wheelchairs for visitors and even water provided for assistance dogs.


Bwlch Nant yr Arian Visitor Centre

Bwlch Nant yr Arian Visitor Centre is one of the best places in Wales to see the wild, beautiful red kites. These magnificent birds are fed every day as part of a long-running conservation programme, visiting Bwlch Nant of their own accord. The all-ability Barcud Trail leads from the eco-friendly visitor centre to the edge of the lake, where the birds are fed.


Dragonfly Cruises

Take a leisurely cruise along the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal in a narrowboat with room for two wheelchairs. The cruise will take around two and a half hours. Perfect for a bit of ‘me’ time or quality time with your loved ones, while soaking up the unique sights along the canal.


Elan Valley Visitor Centre

The Elan Valley Visitor Centre is the perfect starting point for exploring this stunning part of Mid Wales. The well-surfaced Cnwch Wood Trail runs in a loop around the Visitor Centre and is suitable for wheelchair users. For a longer adventure there's the Elan Valley Trail, a nine-mile accessible path that follows the route of the old Birmingham Corporation Railway between Cwmdauddwr, just west of Rhayader and the Craig Goch Dam.


Cors Caron National Nature Reserve

Cors Caron National Nature Reserve covers one of the largest actively growing raised bogs in the lowlands of Britain. The bogs are an important habitat for rare flora and fauna, and you might see soaring red kites, skylarks, curlews, otters, native lizards and dragonflies. The Old Railway walk provides a flat surface for wheelchairs, bikes and buggies.


Tresaith Beach

Sandwiched between rocky headlands, Tresaith is a small sandy beach and is a popular spot with watersports fans and sunbathers, with an unusual waterfall that tumbles over the cliffs.


Aberystwyth North Beach

Made of smooth, dark sand and shingle, this beach is one of the best-loved spots in Aberystwyth. The promenade by the beach is perfect for wheelchair users.
