Today the town still retains its vital function as a market and shopping centre serving North West Shropshire and Mid Wales. The narrow passageways link streets whose names conjure up images of the past: English Walls, Welsh Walls, The Bailey and the Horsemarket.
Welshpool is just over 20 miles from Tanyffridd, nestling in the upper reaches of the picturesque Severn Valley on the Welsh side of the border it is also a bustling Market Town.

A wealth fascinating cultural history is waiting to be discovered in this beautiful part of Wales. Myths and legends abound as do castles and waterfalls, lakes and mountains. This is wonderful walking country with the spectacular Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, one of the seven wonders of Wales and the tallest single drop waterfall in the UK is close by. At 240 feet it is taller than Niagara Falls, although somewhat narrower was described by George Borrow as "An immense skein of silk agitated and disturbed by tempestuous blasts. I never saw water falling so gracefully" it is a must see! You'll be amazed by its beauty as the waters crash through the natural rock formations. Water plunges down a vertical cliff and flows through a circular hole before shooting down into plunge pools below a footbridge and this site was listed recently in The Times' Wild Swimming guide.
The breath taking scenery of the Welsh mountains offers you quiet hidden valleys, wild moorland and windy peaks, woodlands and magnificent waterfalls, all within easy walking distance of the house. To help you discover the beauty of this landscape easy to follow descriptions of a number of circular local walks are available in the farmhouse.

His achievement is now looked on as a major monument in the history of the Welsh language and St Melangell's Church, nine miles from Tanyffridd, has been a place of pilgrimage for over a thousand years. According to legend, Melangell was given the Pennant valley as a place of sanctuary by Prince Brochwel Ysgithrog in the c7th after the hare he was hunting took refuge under her skirts. The valley became a sacred site and a shrine was built to St Melangell.
