Under a mile from Redwood Valley, Presteigne is a thriving town with a wine bar, four pubs and an eclectic array of independent shops and eateries. Within a stone’s throw of Redwood Valley, we have a fantastic farm park and owl sanctuary, Westonbury Mill Water Gardens, Dunkerton’s Cider Mill, a spectacular waterfall, Ludlow Castle and, of course, Offa’s Dyke.
The Dyke offers some of the best hiking in Wales and you can read up on hiking tips, its health benefits, etc, at hobbyhelp.com/hiking. We are also within an easy day trip of Hay on Wye, the seaside around Aberystwyth, the Brecon Beacons, the Centre for Alternative Technology and much of Snowdonia.
You will also find much to keep you occupied within Redwood Valley. Aside from BBQs and campfires, there are two nature trails to explore, a huge rope swing and a brook where you can paddle. The Woodland Trust’s Nature Detectives website also has some great suggestions for family activities in the woods. In the event of rain, we have plenty of books, playing cards and board games in our kitchen area. We are also in a dark sky site – there is an observatory just up the road in Knighton – so bring a telescope if you are a keen stargazer.
