The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
The Powys borders run along side the spectacular Dyke which King Offa ordered to be constructed in the 8th century, probably to divide his Kingdom of Mercia from rival kingdoms in what is now Wales. The Trail explores the tranquil Marches (as the border region is known) and passes through the Brecon Beacons National Park on the spectacular Hatterall Ridge. In addition it links no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Wye Valley, the Shropshire Hills and the Clwydian Hills.
1. Welshpool & Oswestry – about 15 – 20 minutes by car. Has a good range of supermarkets ( Tesco,Sainsburys, Morrisons, Somerfields, Iceland), all your high street favourites – Boots, WHSmith, plenty of cafes and coffee shops, and some specialist shops.
2. The nearby Medieval town of Shrewsbury and city Chester offering excellent shopping,cinemas and a racing course. www.visitchester.com or www.visitshrewsbury.com
1. Lake Vyrnwy
We are approximately 25min drive to the spectacular Lake Vyrnwy which lies south of the Snowdonia national park. It has a stone built dam constructed in 1880’s and is the first of its kind in the world. The small village of Llawddyn was flooded to create the Lake. There is a nature reserve that is of special scientific interest and a special protection area.
The RSPB has hides around the lake where rare species of bird such as the Siskin, Wood warbler, Redstart, Pied flycatcher and the Peregrine falcon are known to breeding. As well as all this there are the most amazing walks for you to explore the surrounding landscape. There is a small shop and café for refreshment after your expedition at the lake, they also offer cycle hire with a water sports centre for canoeing and sailing enthusiasts.
2. Llanrhader & Pistyll Rhader falls
Le-Gro barns are close to the village of Llanrhader with the magnificent Pistyll Rhader water Falls. The village was used in the film “The Englishman who went up a hill but came down a mountain” starring Hugh Grant, Tara Fitzgerald and Colm Meaney. Some of the locals also stared in the film and if you are lucky you might spot them.
3. Castles and Manors:
We are very fortunate to have many splendid castles and stately homes within easy driving distance. There is Powys Castle in Welshpool where Prince Charles used to stay when he is visiting the area. It has fabulous gardens and grounds, well worth a visit. In the opposite direction and closer to Oswestry there is Chirk castle. For a great day out in Shropshire there is Stokesay castle and Ludlow castle along with the smaller Clun and Whittington castles.
There are many fabulous stately homes such as Erddig at Wrexham and Attingham Park and Stokesay Court in Shropshire that the whole family can enjoy. Many of these are National Trust or English Heritage properties.
4. Offas Dyke and other country walks
(Welsh: Clawdd Offa) is a massive linear earthwork, roughly following some of the current border between England and Wales and is 177miles long.It was created by the AngloSaxon king, King Offa who ruled the kingdom of Mercia from 757 to 796. In the 8th century it formed some kind of delineation between the Anglian kingdom of Mercia and the Welsh kingdom of Powys.
Offas Dyke passes over Llanymynech hill which can be accessed form the barns on foot or by car. The network of public footpaths lead on to Llyncls common nature reserve providing an excellent walk with spectacular views over the Shropshire / Powys borders. There is also the Heritage centre and Llanymynech offering lovely walks along the Montgomery canal. In the neighbouring villages there are may walks and nature reserves maintained by Shropshire Wildlife Trust. Oswestry has an Old Race Course which is a great place to walk and the views across the Shropshire plains are spectacular.
5. Chester Races
For a day out with a difference there is always Chester races. They begin in May and finish in September. They are a wonderful excuse to dress up and spoil yourself. With all your winnings you could go and treat yourselves to a sumptuous meal at one of the may restaurants Chester has to offer. For more information on races
There are many other places of interest to visit that are close and an easy car drive away with such as Llangollen canal and the Pontcysylle Aqueduct. The Iron Bridge Gorge Museum that was part of the beginning of the industrial revolution in the 1700’s is a fascinating day out. The Severn Valley Railway, Wroxeter Roman city. You can even experience Victorian living at Blist Hill town.
