We travel south west to Wales, pausing en-route in Ross-on-Wye before arriving at our hotel for our 4-night stay.


This morning we visit the Royal Mint Visitors Centre at Llantrisant which produces coins and medals for over 60 countries. We take a guided tour of the production processes and then visit the Visitors Centre for a self-guided tour of the static and interactive exhibits. Return to Cardiff for a free afternoon at leisure to enjoy the city's attractions


We visit the stunning 55-acres of Dyffryn Gardens (NT). Surrounding the partially restored Dyffryn House, we can explore the beautiful garden rooms, formal lawns and extensive arboretum at leisure. In the afternoon we visit Castle Coch - the ultimate in fairy-tale castles, with conical towers and needle shaped turrets peaking out from a wooded slope. With its 'Camelot' style drawbridge, portcullis, courtyard and interiors, no wonder the castle is a popular filming location (NB: Due to the landscape and distances involved, Castle Coch may not be suitable for those with walking difficulties).


We embark on a 6-mile return vintage steam train journey from Pant to Torpantau on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Travelling alongside the Taf Fechan Reservoir we climb to Torpantau high in the Brecon Beacons. Our 1.5 hr trip includes a 35-minute stop at Pontsticill station where there is a lakeside café and steam museum. Returning to Pant we head towards the famous Penderyn Distillery, where we enjoy a guided tour and tasting.


Departing our hotel, we travel via Chepstow then on through the scenic Wye Valley passing Tintern Abbey, pausing at Monmouth before our arrival home during the late afternoon.
