MG Wales 2021
12th – 16th July 2021
We have planned a four night stay at the Lake Country House Hotel near Llangammarch Wells, a superb base to explore mid Wales. We have arranged three road run itineraries: Route one takes you out to the Cambrian coast. Route two explores the beauty of the Elan valley including a visit into the Pen Y Garreg dam. The third route heads over the black mountain pass and Brecon Beacons.
The Lake Country House Hotel was recently awarded ‘Good Hotel Guide’ Spa Hotel of the Year, so a restful stay is assured. Dinner is included each evening at the hotel in their acclaimed restaurant, where the chef’s pride themselves on using local produce.
Monday 12th July
Arrive at the Lake Country House Hotel from the middle of the afternoon. Relax in the comfy lounge and greet fellow MGOC members as they arrive. Or take a walk through the grounds of the hotel, which will take you 45 minutes, to give you an idea of the space there is surrounding the hotel. This evening dinner is included.
Tuesday 13th July
Today’s route takes you down to Llandovery, at this point you head up to the Cambrian coast via Lampeter. The mileage today is the longest of the three routes at 125 miles. You will reach Cardigan Bay and the pretty little village of New Quay. The route then takes you back to the hotel via Aberystwyth. Get the timing right and you will see the Red Kite’s feeding at Rhayader as you follow the route back to the hotel.
Wednesday 14th July
After breakfast at the hotel we head out on to a superb road used on the RAC rally for many years through the 60’s and 70’s (don’t worry it is not a gravel stage). Having tackled the Devils Staircase there is a good coffee stop in Tregaron. We then loop around to the spectacular Elan valley for a photo call at the Craig Goch dam and a tour of the Pen-Y-Garreg dam for a walk inside the long gallery. It is then back to the hotel for time to relax and enjoy its surroundings. Today’s road run is 85 miles.
Thursday 15th July
On day three after breakfast we aim to get out in the cars promptly this morning in order to enjoy the roads whilst they are quieter. Today it is the ‘Brecon Beacons driving route’ namely the Black mountain pass made famous by Top Gear. This 20-mile stretch has a mixture of open corners that you can see all the way through as well as hairpin bends, as you climb up to 1600 feet above sea level. On a clear day expect spectacular views from the summit. The road loops around for more views across the Brecon Beacons on the way back to the hotel for the final evening. Todays run is 95 miles.
Friday 16th July
Enjoy one last Welsh breakfast before checking out of the hotel and continuing on your journey home.
