Details

Llanwrtyd is a town with a marvellous sense of humour and in many ways it is a fantastic advertisement for Wales all on its own.

The town is easily accessible by train, located mid-way on the scenic Heart of Wales Railways line. The town, which is a great base to stay and explore the Cambrian Mountains, offers visitors the choice of a outdoor activities including mountain biking, cycling, walking, fishing and riding.

Many of the walking and cycling routes in the area follow old Drovers roads, used for over 500 years by farmers selling their livestock in the profitable markets over the border.

Llanwrtyd Wells is well known for holding really quirky events including World Alternate Games, Bog Snorkelling and Man v Horse Marathon. For a small market town, it also boasts an unusally large range of great places eat, as well as a cookery school run by chef, Peter James at the Drovers Rest Restaurant in the town centre.

The River Irfon, an upper tributary of the River Wye, flows through the town centre joining the River Wye at Builth Wells. Enjoy discovering the surrounding area where you will find many old Roman roads, ancient standing stones, tiny chapels and churches, stunning scenery and abundant wildlife to explore. Look out for Red Kites soaring above the town and, if very lucky, you well get a glimpse of rare red squirrels on your travels.
