The Powys region

Towns & villages within an hour

Berriew (8 minutes drive) – this award-winningly scenic village of black and white buildings is a beautiful 4 mile walk away, or just 5 minutes by car. The Rhiw river and Montgomery Canal both pass through Berriew, which is well served by a Spar, a butcher, two pubs, a restaurant and a lovely café. (see Food & drink)

Montgomery (15mins) – right on the English border, this delightful little town sits snugly under the looming cliffs on which Montgomery Castle perches. There's much to do around the picturesque central square – the Old Bell Museum, homely cafés, a Michelin-starred restaurant (see Food & drink) and some great pub options. And, if you love old-fashioned hardware shops, then get lost in Bunners, established in 1892 and a charming warren of nooks, crannies and gadgets.

Welshpool (17mins) – home to majestic Powis Castle and the Welshpool & Llanfair Steam Railway, Welshpool is a vibrant small town with lots going on. A leisure centre, major supermarkets and national train links direct to the Welsh coast and Birmingham. Initially known in English as Pool but changed to Welshpool in 1835 to distinguish it from the English town of Poole.

Bishops Castle (30mins) – a friendly, quirky Shropshire town with an alternative feel, numerous friendly pubs, good restaurant options and a peaceful bookshop-cafe. A worthy stop when visiting the Long Mynd or Shropshire Hills.

Llanidloes (37mins) – a characterful and picturesque little town, with timber-framed buildings including the 17th century Market Hall, the last survivor of its kind in Wales. The hall now houses the Llanidloes Museum, which lovingly details the history of timber-framed building as well as unusual exhibit, a two-headed lamb born here in 1914.

Llangollen (60mins) - part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the canal from Gledrid to the Horseshoe Falls, taking in the spectacular Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

Shrewsbury (48Mins) – Charles Darwin's birthplace has 660 listed buildings in among the shops and restaurants you'd expect of a major town. The castle is worth a visit and the annual flower show (August) attracts more than 100,000 visitors.

Ludlow (57mins) – a real gem, proudly set around its castle ruins on the brink of the river Teme. More famous than its history, however, is Ludlow's modern status as foody capital of the UK. Some of the finest eateries and food producers are based here, including numerous current and former Michelin-star winners. (see Food & drink)

Machynlleth (57mins) – on the edge of Snowdonia and en route to the coast, Machynlleth is home to the fascinating Centre For Alternative Technology and the Corris Craft Centre (see For children).

"Tyn Yr Wtra is a perfect holiday retreat, a very peaceful and private haven"

A wonderful cosy and spacious farmhouse with bags of character, set in idyllic private grounds & gardens surrounded by absolutely stunning scenery. The kitchen is a plus factor, a great social gathering point - we were inspired to make fresh bread and some hearty farmhouse stews.

Thank you for the review, and we're really pleased you had such a nice time at Tyn Yr Wtra - we hope to welcome you all back again soon!
