Where to start...? In a county that could almost be described as one enormous country park, there's a wide variety to suit everyone. 🌼⛲ From Victorian and Edwardian, to medieval and modern, including some that hold lively and popular annual music festivals! 🎵 There's leafy-green woodlands, lakes, and of course beaches. Plenty of choice, and many fully accessible expanses to enjoy. 🌻 Read more about the Vale Parks and Gardens trail here - www.visitthevale.com/inspiration/parks-and-gardens-trail #walesbytrails #llwybrau #visitthevale #visitwales
