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: CC624030
    If you are looking for comfortable accommodation in a charming location, just a very short stroll to pubs, cafes or shops, then London House could be ideal for you. Situated within Llanwrtyd Wells, which claims to be Britain’s smallest town, London House dates back to 1875 and used to be a bakery and shop. The shop itself is now the kitchen and breakfast room, and the original shop door is still in place. The rear of the house overlooks the River Irfon, and whilst sitting in the pleasing walled courtyard which is a great suntrap, you can relax to the sounds of the river flowing by. The outbuildings, containing the original bread ovens for the bakery, offer a place to store your cycles. The owner, who runs a nearby guest house, has created a comfortable, well-equipped holiday home for you, but if you don’t feel like cooking you may wish to sample breakfast at the guest house (subject to advance booking and at cost).

    For a small town, Llanwrtyd Wells has a lot going on and a massive quota of charm. The town became a popular Victorian Spa town and location to “take the waters” – an activity nowadays that would only suit the hardiest and most adventurous visitor! Here, you are in the heart of Wales, between the Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains, a perfect location for exploring the vast green hills and visiting a plethora of places including Builth Wells, Llandovery, the reservoirs of the Elan Valley and Llyn Brianne, or the breathtaking Abergwesyn Mountain Pass. But don’t be in too much of a rush to leave the town, as throughout the year it plays host to a variety of local festivals and unusual events including the Man vs Horse Marathon, World Bog Snorkelling Championships, Red Kite Bash and Cider Cycle, Real Ale Wobble, Drovers Walks and the Welsh Open Stone Skimming Championships to name but a few.

    Why not come and discover this area rich in heritage and natural beauty, and make London House your base?

    Ground Floor: The property has gas central heating and comprises:
    Lounge/dining room: With 32" Freeview TV and DVD player.
