This area must surely be one of Wales' best kept secrets.

Ground Floor

Open the door and step into a large and tastefully decorated open plan area which includes a lounge, fully equipped, modern kitchen and dining area. The kitchen includes a fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave.

After a day exploring the countryside and local towns and villages, what better way to end the day than by having a long soak in the large double slipper bath in the spacious bedroom, while you watch a movie on the flat screen TV? Or why not just relax and unwind on the comfy king size bed as you gaze out the window at the lush green hills? Romantic holiday getaways don't get any better than this.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Cariad Holiday Apartment is set in a gorgeous countryside location, 2 miles above the little town of Llanfair Caereinion which has all the necessary amenities including shops, pubs, banks and even a steam train. The busy market town of Welshpool is also within 7 miles, offering many attractions including castles and a canal to take you back to a bygone era.

Take the short drive to the stunning lake Vyrnwy, where you can try your hand at watersports and cycling or enjoy a leisurely walk and good lunch. Golf and fishing are popular in this part of Wales, too, with plenty of golf courses and a coarse fishing lake.

If you're after castles and culture, Mid Wales has both in spades. Nearby Dolforwyn Castle, for example, was the last castle to be built by Llewelwyn (the Last Prince of Wales), between 1273 and 1277. Powis Castle, which started life as a medieval fortress, is a must, especially for its beautiful gardens and collection of paintings, sculpture, furniture and tapestries.

Portmeirion and the Mountains of Snowdon are within easy reach whilst pony trekking and quad trekking are available locally. Other popular attractions include Llanrhaeadr Waterfall (the tallest in the UK), the Centre for Alternative Technology and King Arthur's Labyrinth.



Glyndwr's Way is a long distance footpath in Mid Wales that was granted National Trail status in the year 2000. Join the path in Welshpool (7 miles) / Meifod (8 miles).

Severn Way – Gentle 12 mile route along the Montgomery Canal towpath from Welshpool (7 miles) to Newtown.

Offa's Dyke Path – National Trail (177 miles in total) following the Welsh/English border. Nearest section starts at Buttington Bridge, 11 miles away.


River Banwy – Llanfair Caereinion. ½ a mile of fishing down stream from town bridge. 2 miles

Bluebell Park – Llanerfyl. 1 acre lake with platform fishing. 6 miles

Lake Vyrnwy – Wild brown, stocked brown and rainbow trout. 17 miles


Welshpool Golf Club – 18 hole golf course. 4 miles


Bike hire is available on site and can be arranged with owners after arrival.

Llanfair Caereinion to Castle Caereinion. 10 mile cycle route following the steam railway towards Welshpool so you could even return on the train. Quite a hilly route - excellent views. Join the route 1 mile away.

Lake Vyrnwy – 12 mile circuit around the scenic Lake Vyrnwy. Suitable for the whole family. 17 miles


Lletty Mawr Trekking Centre – Llangadfan. Call 01938 820646 for info. 10 miles

This is one of the best places I have visited.
The views that greet you when you wake are outstanding.
The Appartment was furnished to the highest quality and made for a very pleasant stay.
