Tourism businesses in Mid Wales have a brand new global shop window to promote the wide range of things for visitors to see and do within the beautiful region, which stretches between the Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons National Parks.
MWT Cymru, the independent organisation that represents around 600 tourism and hospitality business across Powys, Ceredigion and Meirionnydd part of South Gwynedd, has upgraded and relaunched its website – www.visitmidwales.co.uk – in time for the main holiday season.
The website, which is fully responsive to mobile phones, tablets and desktop pcs, has been completely rebuilt and redesigned to make it easier for users to navigate and find the information they need.
Destinations are captured under the headings: Mid Wales Coast, Mid Wales Inland, Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and Towns and Villages.
Under the ‘Book your stay’ section, visitors can choose from more than 360 places, including hotels and B&Bs, self-catering, camping and touring, holiday parks, hostels and bunkhouses.
To help visitors find their perfect holiday there are sections for families and kids, romantic couples, people who enjoy wildlife, groups and get-togethers, those with accessibility needs and those looking for pet friendly accommodation.
Days out with things to see and do include history and heritage, culture and the arts, biking and cycling, country pursuits, walking and hiking, rail enthusiasts, outdoor adventure. In addition, there’s a what’s on section and useful information about tours and itineraries.
A travel assistant section will help visitors decide how to get to Mid Wales and then how to move around the region.
A new addition is a shortlist facility, which allows users to develop their own itinerary from the information available and then to print it off in pdf format.
“The website contains a huge amount of information and we have tried to make it more user-friendly and easier to navigate,” said MWT Cymru’s chief executive Val Hawkins.
“The key was to make the website more responsive to small mobile devices because, increasingly, people are accessing information on the move. “The fresh, new look is enhanced by eye-catching imagery and we hope visitors will be as pleased as we are with the result.”
