Find cottages in 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: CC624020
    Situated on a beautiful stretch of the Upper Wye Valley, Searle is one of five properties which have been created by the imaginative conversion of a 19th century inn, although the original stone cottages have a history going back to the 18th century when they were occupied by an agricultural worker, a blacksmith and a coffin maker. The “Middleton Arms” as it became, was owned by landowners whose seat was at Llyn Parriad and later it changed its name to the “Vulcan Arms” in homage to the Vulcan God of Fire, god of the blacksmiths. It sits on the old Cambrian railway line and was an important hostelry for those using Doldowlod Halt station until the line was closed in the 1960’s. Today the holiday cottage offers every modern comfort whilst still retaining the best features of the old inn. Searle is an end-terraced cottage which is spacious and characterful. It offers easy access to the A470 via a slip road; Sustrans cycle routes, the River Wye which is right on the doorstep, Wye Valley Walks and the Red Kite Centre. A very short walk from the apartment will bring you to a shop, post office and café. A stop for buses to Llandrindod Wells and Rhayader is nearby.

    The town of Rhayader is 7 minutes drive away and the area is home to the spectacular dams and reservoirs of the Elan and Claerwen Valleys. There are events on throughout the year and this is the perfect base for the whole family to experience stunning outdoor attractions including fishing, and discover rich and rare wildlife in the rolling Cambrian Mountains.

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.
