Photography Breaks - (Self guided)

Whether you are a beginner, enthusiast or professional photographer, Mid Wales has lots to offer - from coast, mountains and woodlands to wildlife. 

As a keen photographer I have been to many locations in the area from the well known popular spots to lesser known ones. Below I've highlighted some of them.

  

Hafod Estate

Created in the picturesque period Hafod has a lot of photography opportunities a mix of waterfalls, gorges, rivers, quirky bridges and mixed woodland. Not one to miss if you enjoy outdoor nature photography. 

Best time - All year round, autumn for colours.  

Photography opportunities:- Waterfalls, mixed woodlands, wildlife, landscape, macro / close up

When to go - All year round, autumn for colours.

Suggested time - Min 1/2 a day, don’t be surprised if you spend much longer! 

 General details: There is a car park with toilet, free entry. No refreshments, nearest in Pontrhydygroes -or Devils Bridge.

A fair amount of walking is required if you wish to go around the whole estate and there are some steep / narrow paths. A short scramble up some rocks is needed to get into the cavern. 

Other locations near by - Devils Bridge, The Arch, Miners Bridge and gorge. 

 

Bwlch Nant Yr Arian

Red Kites are fed daily at the lakeside with often over a hundred in the sky above you so a great opportunity to capture these elegant birds. 

Best time - All year round, winter for number of birds - wrap up warm! 

Suggested time - birds are fed 3pm daily in the summer and 2pm in the winter, short walk from car park. 

General details - There is a car park, toilets, cafe / gift shop. Children’s play area, cycling tracks. Open daily all year, check website for cafe opening times and Christmas opening times. 

There are walks around the Estate with valley and woodland views plus other birds, particularly around the feeders by the cafe. 

Other locations near by, Nant y Moch reservoir, Devils Bridge, Aberystwyth.
