About this location
The Powys region
Madog's Wells, Llanfair Caereinion near Welshpool, is set between Brecon Beacons to the south and Berwyn Mountains to the north. It is in very quiet countryside, a secluded valley, 3 miles from the nearest village and main road. We are approached by a single track lane (fully paved) with many passing places. Ideal for birdwatching, and walking among the hills. We have a private 1 acre woodland in which a path wends its way passed a pond, over bridges and down 85 steps back to the edge of a sparkling stream. You can stop half way and rest a while on the benches set in the right places to enjoy the views.
40 minutes drive to Lake Vyrnwy with Snowdonia Park beyond. An hours' drive takes you to the wild beaches of Ynys Las, and the Dovey estuary town of Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) and the kite feeding centres at Gigrin Farm and Nant-yr-Arian.
Welshpool, 10 miles away, has Powis Castle, canal and walks, museum, supermarkets, and wonderful garden centres with wheelchair accessible restaurants. It is close to the English border with Shrewsbury 25 mins. further on. Oswestry, with its old market town features and a hill fort is 45 mins. drive from Madog's Wells.
Madog's Wells is a lovely place for a bit of peace and quiet and re-charge your batteries!
