The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
Wales is a place of natural beauty and diversity. The north east of Wales features some traditional seaside towns and spectacular views and is a great place to stay. The West coast has some great coastal walks and lovely sandy beaches to discover. Surfing and dog walking is popular in this area. The north west has highlights including Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey in this magical part of Wales; you will find a break here relaxing or if you fancy going for a climb then it would be adventurous. The south coast of Wales has sandy beaches but also the benefit of access some of Wales' largest cities including the capital Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are full of steep mountain escarpments, waterfalls and spectacular views. In mid Wales you will begin to discover the appeal of the Valleys. And finally, Pembrokeshire has jagged coastlines, secret bays and some of the finest coastal towns line this area and you can see why people return every year to holiday there.
Known locally simply as "Llandod", the county town of Powys has a population of 5,000; developed as a spa town in the C19th with the construction of new streets, hotels, shops and houses, tourism is still a very important element of the area.
Llandrindod hosts one of the leading Victorian Festivals in the UK; locals and visitors promenade in August in period dress with street entertainers, a traditional fun fair and many organised events.
The Art Deco style former garage which was called the Automobile Palace (its facade still boasts of also selling aircraft) now houses the National Cycle Collection which includes some of the bicycles originally displayed in the garage. Llandrindod has a station on the delightful scenic Heart of Wales railway line and the station features a restored signal box.
The town has international standard outdoor bowling greens which host national and international events and a newer indoor bowling centre; the 100th Bowls Tournament is scheduled for July/August 2012. Overlooking the town is an 18-hole golf course which was established in 1905 and designed by six times open champion Harry Vardon; the Club welcomes visiting golfers.
