The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
Look no further if you are in search of green hills and mountains, fresh air and relaxation. A holiday in the Trowley Farmhouse will introduce you to a beautiful part of Wales, a refreshing region in which you can savour the atmosphere of traditional market towns, go walking along ancient pathways such as Offas Dyke, enjoy the pleasures of touring peaceful roads, and at the end of the day return to the comfort of a cosy home from home.
The surroundings in the central heartlands of Wales are a revelation. The scenery here is something special - rolling countryside all the way from the wide, open spaces of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the south to the wild beauty of the Berwyn Mountains in the north. From your front door you can walk up through Trowley farmland onto the open heather and fern covered common, where you can look over to Pen y Fan and the Black Mountains, and there are several churches that you can walk to.
There is so much to see in the area, whether you are a books buff (Hay on Wye bookshops are a must), an adrenaline junkie (try gorge walking or even white water rafting) or need a good relax (treat yourself to high tea at Llangoed Hall) then we can find it for you. We aim to make your holiday special!
Painscastle has the remains of a Norman Castle, and the local pub The Roasted Ox Inn is only 1.5 miles away. The food is excellent with a great sunday roast and a good atmosphere. There is a community tennis court in Rhosgoch (3 miles), also a licensed golf course also serving bar meals and a home cooked sunday carvery. There are local riding school that will take you out on the hills just above the Trowley.
