We’re in the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales in this month’s episode at our Bwlch Nant yr Arian Visitor Centre. The centre has had a successful year in 2021 despite the difficulties posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
This year, the centre retained its TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award that it has won for a number of years consecutively, now. The award recognises destinations which earn consistently positive visitor reviews; it also means that the centre is in the top 10% of locations listed on TripAdvisor.
This year, the centre was also awarded the coveted Green Flag Award for the first time. The award – which is delivered in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy - is a sign that a park or green space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent visitor facilities. Bwlch Nant yr Arian is only the second NRW site to be awarded the Green Flag after our Garwnant Visitor Centre near Merthyr Tydfil was awarded the accolade in 2016.
So what does it take to earn these awards and to be popular with visitors and locals alike? That's what we wanted to find out.
