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.

    Ref: UK6073
    If you’re looking for a romantic retreat with a difference then look no further; Ty Bach (meaning ‘little house’) is a lovingly crafted western red-cedar shepherd’s hut approached by a private pathway leading to its own garden overlooking pretty Powys countryside.


    Inside this cute hut, there’s a comfortable sofa by day that converts into a full-size double bed by night with a sprung mattress. Light the wood burner, relax, and enjoy a glass of wine in cosy comfort all year round. There’s a fold down table and a small kitchen area with sink and single gas burner to make a cuppa or a quick breakfast. In days gone by, a shepherd’s hut wouldn’t have had the luxury of electricity or showers, but Ty Bach has both, and at one end of the hut, you’ll find an en-suite shower room with an eco-toilet. Electricity is provided by means of a battery and solar panels, so there are lights, a double socket and 12-volt power point. With no TV or Wi-Fi, there’s nothing to distract guests from getting back to nature in this most tranquil setting. The owners live adjacent, so help is always at hand. In the nearby shed you’ll find a large insulated cool box that the owner will keep cool with fresh ice blocks, so that your provisions, wine and beer will stay chilled throughout your stay. With a barbecue and garden furniture, guests can enjoy dining al-fresco style, whilst admiring the beautiful surroundings.


    If you can drag yourself away from Ty Bach, guests are advised to explore the beautiful county of Powys. The area is a paradise for outdoorsy types with walking, cycling and mountain biking, canoeing, fishing and horse riding available nearby. Delve into the rich history of Wales’ last prince, Llewellyn, who was killed near Builth in 1282. Today the interesting market town, which is just 8 miles away, hosts Wales’ famous Royal Agricultural Show in July annually, along with other shows and fairs throughout the year. Also nearby are the historic, vibrant towns of Rhayader and Llandrindod Wells, with their independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There’s also the spectacularly stunning Elan Valley Dams, 500² miles of breathtaking scenery in the Brecon Beacons National Park, and Hay-on-Wye, which is cited as the ‘second-hand book capital of the world’. Shop 8 miles, pub serving food 1½ miles.

    Arch Cottage lies in a quiet side street in the centre of pretty Llanidloes, which was once the heart of the ancient medieval kingdom of Arwystli. It is the first town on the River Severn and is an ideal spot to take a short break or longer holiday. Easy to reach, Llanidloes is situated only a 2-hour drive from Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff, with the national rail network running close by. Yet ’Llani’ as it is often referred to locally, is far away from hustle and bustle of modern life and the perfect place to relax amidst some of the most unspoilt and undiscovered scenery Wales has to offer, surrounded by soft mountain scenery which makes it very popular with wildlife enthusiasts and hikers. The Celtic Saint Idloes laid the foundations of a church on table land overlooking the Severn and today the layout of wide streets formed in the shape of a cross form the heart of the town. The Old Market Hall, the only half timbered hall of its kind in Wales and still in its original position, was constructed on the centre of the cross in the early 1600s. Llanidloes has an array of interesting independent shops, cafes and no less than nine pubs, so no shortage of places to eat and drink. There are over 30 separate walking routes and national trails around the town which are clearly marked and signposted. They link Llanidloes with the smaller surrounding villages of Llangurig, Llandinam and Trefeglwys and range from just a few miles to a good day’s walk. Many of the roads and tracks around the town are ideal for cyclists and the Lon Cambrian Sustrans routes pass through the town. In this beautiful Mid Wales region you will find castles, country houses & gardens, wildlife and nature reserves, small market towns, lakes, mountains and the beaches of the Ceredigion coastline are within easy reach.
