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.

    Kilsby Cottage is next to the owners country home and bed & breakfast, which was originally built as a school by the Rev JR Kilsby Jones in the 1850’s. This semi-detached holiday cottage sits on the edge of 21/2 acres of garden and private woodland, with an abundance of wildlife and spectacular views. Reduced rate wild trout fishing on upper Irfon beat is available (licence required). Evidence of the original 19th century planting and terracing is still apparent with a great diversity of mature trees and shrubs in the grounds and where the extensive views and the abundant local wildlife were a source of inspiration. Today the views remain just as grand and the wildlife is still prolific. Apart from the wonderful bird life, you might see slow-worms, common lizards, badgers, hedgehogs, polecats, wood mice and bank voles in the garden during your stay.

    Kilsby Cottage is a bird-watchers paradise with many varied resident species, as well as a number of notable summer visitors. Garden seating and strategically situated feeding stations and nesting boxes allow visitors to view many different bird species in comfort and within close proximity to the house and cottage. In addition to the garden birds, various raptor species such as red kites, buzzards and peregrine falcons are frequently seen soaring overhead.

    For walkers, lovers of outdoor pursuits or fishing, Kilsby Cottage is ideally situated for the Wye Valley, Cambrian Mountains or Brecon Beacons, or you can leave the car at the cottage and walk miles from the doorstep; explore the hills and photograph the birds or fish the River Irfon.

Horse riding and guided pony trekking, for both novices and experienced riders alike, are available from established stables in nearby Llanwrtyd Wells.
