Powys

Powys is a tranquil and peaceful county situated in Mid Wales. The county is mostly made up of smaller towns and villages and has plenty of rural space for the ultimate quiet getaway.

Though Powys is a quiet and relaxing place to spend a holiday, this doesn''t mean there is a lack of things to do while you''re there. It is the largest county in Wales, hosting plenty of attractions. For example, there are a number of cave systems located in Powys, including some of the most extensive in Wales. Various tours allow you to explore these caves for yourself and to see the unique and awe-inspiring beauty of these natural formations.

If you have an interest in history, you will have no trouble filling the time while holidaying in Powys. The area now covered by Powys includes five historic counties, giving it a varied past which today has given birth to plenty of heritage sites and other attractions. For instance, there are six castles within Powys''s borders. These range from Aberedw Castle, which lies in ruins, to Powis Castle, which still stands as a grand and imposing country manor. The county also has a number of museums, including Brecknock Museum, which hosts artefacts dating back as far as the Stone Age and occupies a Grade II listed building.

Nonetheless, the quiet rural beauty of Powys is one of the biggest draws, and this itself provides visitors with plenty to do. In most parts of the county the scenic walks are absolutely delightful. There are several wonderful set walks and trails in the county which provide excellent views of local scenery and of nature.

For those looking to take in the beauty of nature but wanting something more spectacular, the breathtaking lakes and waterfalls make for ideal sightseeing. A number of scenic lakes can be found in Powys. The amazing waterfalls, meanwhile, include the mighty Pistyll y Llyn, which is one of the highest in Wales.
