The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
Mid Wales is a great location for any family holiday, romantic getaway or short break or weekend getaway. You will find castles, country houses & gardens, wildlife and nature reserves, small market towns, lakes, mountains and beaches.
The local area has excellent cycling and walking routes close by including the Shropshire Union Canal footpath, Offas's Dyke, Severn Way and Glyndwr's Way.
Just 6 miles away from Llys Hendy is the ancient town of Montgomery, where you will find a number of independent retail and craft shops and tempting eateries. Overlooking the town are the ruins of a Norman castle which offers panoramic views across the Welsh and English border lands.
Lake Vyrnwy is another popular destination, set amidst the remote and beautiful Berwyn Mountains. With spectacular waterfalls, and unspoilt open countryside, a visit to Lake Vyrnwy is a wonderful day whatever your age. Bicycles are available for hire, together with canoes, kayaks, sailing boats and boards.The very best rough shooting, fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting and quad biking are on offer too.
Also within an hour's drive is the beautiful Mid Wales coast featuring miles of glorious beaches, of which 43 fly the much-coveted Blue Flag award. Many of the quaint harbour towns offer guided tours and boat trips from their shores; an excellent way to explore this stunning coastline.
Alternatively you may like to spend some time in the historic town of Shrewsbury, one of England's finest medieval towns, which is just a 20 minute train ride away.
And, of course, no visit to Wales is complete without a visit to Snowdonia National Park, which boasts the highest mountain in England and Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Betws y Coed and Beddgelert. Snowdonia is an area steeped in culture and local history, where more than half its population speak Welsh and is located approximately an hour's drive away.
Montgomeryshire is known as "The Paradise of Wales", and this charming property is located at the very heart of that paradise. The area is a rural idyll, with rolling hills, fertile farm land in the valleys and mountainous regions with lakes and forests.
Llys Hendy Cottage is ideally situated, between two villages, both conveniently located 3 miles away and is the perfect base for exploring the varied delights of both Shropshire (to the east) and mid-Wales (to the west).
Berriew is a pretty village of traditional black and white cottages and has a butcher's shop, gift shop, general store, delicatessen and tearoom, church, school and the unique Andrew Logan Museum. In addition, there are 2 lively pubs,both which serve food. The village also houses The Upper Rectory, an award-winning restaurant which offers a unique dining experience in the form of a stunning 7-course taster menu.
Bettws Cedewain is also offers an excellent pub and gastro restaurant, complete with beautiful gardens for patrons to sit outside (in summer and winter!) and enjoy a relaxing drink.
In Welshpool itself you can visit the Powysland Museum, although on the way you might wish to pop into Powis Castle, the red gritstone medieval fortress bequeathed to the National Trust in 1952 by the 4th Earl of Powis, which also features magnificent baroque gardens complete with rambling Italianate terraces. The town also offers extensive shopping facilities, cafes and restaurants and is the starting point for a trip on the delightful Welshpool & Llanfair Light Steam Railway.
