Ryder Cup Wales Sept 2010

My family and I are planning a trip to Wales in Autumn 2010 for the Ryder Cup. We want to stay a month and see more of this beautiful country. We are planning to rent a large house somewhere quiet but ideally central for visiting different parts of Wales. We want to see some castles, ideally visit the Brecon beacons and maybe the beaches in West Wales as we've seen some impressive photographs. Oh and also visit the capital Cardiff. I have been to Cardiff before but its a first for my family. Can anyone recommend somewhere to stay? And which Welsh places would be top of your list to see during our stay?

I just returned from a trip to Wales, staying in the area you'll be visiting. Our base was Crickhowell, a very pretty small village on the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons. From there you can easily reach several important castles, such as Chepstow, Caerphilly, Raglan etc. There is a somewhat larger town Abergavenneny even closer. I'd think either would make a good base. You might want to read the relevant parts of my trip report.

Top of my list of visits would be Brecon Beacons, Abergavenny, Wye Valley, Cardiff Bay. There are loads of Castles but one of the most spectacular is Castle Coch which translated means the Red Castle. There are so many wonderful places to visit in Wales. Tredegar House which is a stately home with beautiful gardens is in Newport and is worth a visit. Just google and ask for best places to stay in and around Newport and Cardiff. Hope this helps!
