To me Wales is synonymous with walking. I was once told the principality would be bigger than England if it were flattened out. Certainly there are plenty of hills to clamber up and valleys to saunter down, something that made Welsh tourism take off big time in the early nineteenth century, when the Napoleonic Wars stopped English gentlemen travelling to Switzerland for mountain views. These days there are plenty of urban walks to enjoy as well. Wales has redeveloped its docklands and turned small towns into heritage trails. Many hotels will recommend local walks but here are a few to get you started. Just remember to take an umbrella.
The Falcondale

Falcondale House was remodelled in the “Italian Style” in 1859 after the owners had honeymooned in Italy. A lake was added nearby in the 1880s for boating and fishing. These days there's a pleasant walk to be had turning north along the Lampeter Road and then right down the lane to Falcondale Lake, one of the most romantic spots in mid Wales.
