The Powys region

Look no further if you are in search of green hills and mountains, fresh air and relaxation. A holiday in the Trowley Farmhouse will introduce you to a beautiful part of Wales, a refreshing region in which you can savour the atmosphere of traditional market towns, go walking along ancient pathways such as Offas Dyke, enjoy the pleasures of touring peaceful roads, and at the end of the day return to the comfort of a cosy home from home.

The surroundings in the central heartlands of Wales are a revelation. The scenery here is something special - rolling countryside all the way from the wide, open spaces of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the south to the wild beauty of the Berwyn Mountains in the north. From your front door you can walk up through Trowley farmland onto the open heather and fern covered common, where you can look over to Pen y Fan and the Black Mountains, and there are several churches that you can walk to.

There is so much to see in the area, whether you are a books buff (Hay on Wye bookshops are a must), an adrenaline junkie (try gorge walking or even white water rafting) or need a good relax (treat yourself to high tea at Llangoed Hall) then we can find it for you. We aim to make your holiday special!


Painscastle has the remains of a Norman Castle, and the local pub The Roasted Ox Inn is only 1.5 miles away. The food is excellent with a great sunday roast and a good atmosphere. There is a community tennis court in Rhosgoch (3 miles), also a licensed golf course also serving bar meals and a home cooked sunday carvery. There are local riding school that will take you out on the hills just above the Trowley.

Hay-on-Wye, approx. 6 miles, is home to the largest selection of second-hand book shops in the world. It is an old traditional market town with small streets and many antique shops. Come and stay with us for the Hay literary festival held in May, or visit the stunningly situated market town Brecon to join in with its Jazz festival in August, and then in Builth Wells only 20 minutes away there is the Royal Welsh Show in July.

There are many activities one can do nearby: Black Mountain activities offers rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, high level ropes course (similar to go ape) raft building, clay shooting, archery, mountain biking, gorge walking, white water rafting, white water kayaking, team building, conferences, pony trekking, caving etc.

"A gem of a place !"

Trowley Farmhouse exceeded all expectations. When we arrived, Kathryn was stoking up the wood burner leaving us with such a cosy accomodation from the very start. My family from Canada was extremely impressed with the farmhouse - right up their street. we were a party of 7 adults and my grandson aged two and a half who also had an exciting ride on the quad to see the sheep.No one got under anyone's feet and all were able to do what each one wanted. Well stocked with everything that we needed. All in all, a superb accomodation set in a superb location. Thank you Kathryn!
