The market town of Welshpool, in Mid Wales, is just one & a half miles away and lies just four miles from the National Border. The Georgian architecture that adorns the curving high street would merit a visit in itself, but there is plenty more to do and see in what is one of Powys’ biggest towns. There are numerous shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés in Welshpool town including a leisure centre, one of Europe’s largest livestock markets and the beautiful Powis Castle. Plus, we have regular sightings of red kites flying over!
For the more adventurous, there is the famous Shropshire canal, Welshpool airport (which hosts a spectacular annual air show in June), Welshpool & Llanfair light steam railway and the challenging Welshpool golf course all nearby.
The main Aberystwyth to Birmingham train line stops at Welshpool and allows access to the Welsh coast and the larger Shropshire town of Shrewsbury, although Birmingham City centre is only an hour away.
The villages of Llanfair Caereinion, Castle Caereinion, Berriew and Guilsfield are all within short distance offering their own unique Welsh charm.
