The Powys region
The old county of Radnorshire is now part of Powys but locals still call it Radnorshire. Fascinating county towns each with its own character sit in peaceful landscapes of uplands, hill farms and river valleys criss-crossed by a network of country lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and cycle routes. Small villages and hamlets sit in valley bottoms, some with historic churches. Radnorshire with its secret valleys and rolling hills has an abundance of historic landscape features. Here wildlife abounds, red kites, buzzards, badgers, foxes and hares are to be seen in the fields and over the hills. Good wide main roads without too much traffic make for easy travelling but turn off onto the small roads and lanes and you find yourself in the heart of Radnorshire. For the visitor there is plenty to do and see with outdoor activities, cultural events and attractions all in the area
Llandrindod Wells is a small Victorian Spa town, which in its heyday had 90,000 visitors a year. The Victorian architecture, the Rock Park gardens, Temple gardens, a small theatre and a 13 acre lake with a boathouse café all make this a pleasant town to explore. It still has individual shops as well as major supermarkets. Llandrindod Wells Victorian Festival is held in August and culminates in a magnificent firework display on the lake. Eating out is varied with local pubs, a Thai restaurant, hotels and a wine bar all in the Llandrindod area. For the walker, there are footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding countryside which is a peaceful landscape of uplands, hill farms and river valleys. The popular Offa’s Dyke, Glyndwr’s Way and Wye Valley walk are amongst the many long distance routes in the area. The beautiful Elan Valley’s spectacular dams are about twenty minutes away, as is Gigrin Farm where you can watch the Red Kites feed.
