The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
The old county of Radnorshire is now part of Powys but locals still call it Radnorshire. Fascinating county towns each with its own character sit in peaceful landscapes of uplands, hill farms and river valleys criss-crossed by a network of country lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and cycle routes. Small villages and hamlets sit in valley bottoms, some with historic churches. Radnorshire with its secret valleys and rolling hills has an abundance of historic landscape features. Here wildlife abounds, red kites, buzzards, badgers, foxes and hares are to be seen in the fields and over the hills. Good wide main roads without too much traffic make for easy travelling but turn off onto the small roads and lanes and you find yourself in the heart of Radnorshire. For the visitor there is plenty to do and see with outdoor activities, cultural events and attractions all in the area
Llandrindod Wells is a small Victorian Spa town, which in its heyday had 90,000 visitors a year. The Victorian architecture, the Rock Park gardens, Temple gardens, a small theatre and a 13 acre lake with a boathouse café all make this a pleasant town to explore. It still has individual shops as well as major supermarkets. Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival is held in August and culminates in a magnificent firework display on the lake. Eating out is varied with local pubs, a Thai restaurant, hotels and a wine bar all in the Llandrindod area. For the walker, there are footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding countryside which is a peaceful landscape of uplands, hill farms and river valleys. The popular Offa’s Dyke, Glyndwr’s Way and Wye Valley walk are amongst the many long distance routes in the area. The beautiful Elan Valley’s spectacular dams are about twenty minutes away, as is Gigrin Farm where you can watch the Red Kites feed. Fifteen minutes away is The Hall at Abbey Cwm Hir, a fine example of Victorian Gothic Revival Architecture. At Christmas all fifty two rooms are decorated. Hay on Wye is known worldwide for its second hand bookshops, this lovely small town has individual shops and some great places to eat. Every May it hosts the famous Hay Literary Festival. Builth Wells sits on the banks of the River Wye and is home to the Royal Welsh Showground, where in July the Royal Welsh Show, one of the largest agricultural shows in Europe, is held. Other events are held throughout the year. Builth Wells is also home to the delightful Wyeside Cinema, a comfortable place to watch the latest releases with a glass of wine. Kington is another small market town on the Radnorshire/Herefordshire border. From the town you can walk up onto Hergest Ridge with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Hergest Croft Gardens extend to over 70 acres with more than 5000 rare trees and shrubs described as one of the finest collections of trees and shrubs in Britain. Ludlow is just over the border in Shropshire, famous for its many restaurants, two of them with Michelin stars. Throughout the summer there are local shows and fetes, one of the larger being Kington Show in September. Trotting races are popular and there are local races at Pennybont about 6 miles away. Activities include riding, either with tuition or half or full days hacks across the hills, fishing on some of the best beats the Wye has to offer for salmon, trout, grayling and coarse fish and on the many lakes and pools. Golf at Llandrindod Wells Golf Club, rated amongst the best in Wales, offers the chance to play links type golf amongst the rolling hills. Llandrindod Wells Bowling Club is the largest bowling club in Wales with 3 greens of international standard.
