Welcome to Montgomeryshire

Croeso i Sir Drefaldwyn

The heart of Mid Wales is Powys; the biggest county in Wales and the longest in Britain. Running from north to south beside the border, it is sometimes known as the backbone of Wales. Despite only being created in the 1970s to include old Montgomeryshire, Brecknockshire, Radnorshire and a small part of Denbighshire, it is one of the most important areas of Wales. A lightly scattered population means that the Powys countryside is largely unspoilt. From the tip of southern Snowdonia, the Cambrian Mountains, the Mid Wales Marches and the Brecon Beacons, there is just so much to see. 

The Brecon Beacons is a great location to take part in water sports such as sailing, dragon boating, raft building and kayaking to name a few. It’s not all about the water; you can also take part in activities on dry land just a mile away. The Brecon Beacons National Park is in a part of Wales that is well-known for its exceptional natural beauty and historical character. The beautiful hills of the Brecon Beacons provide a huge variety of walks. 

As you enjoy all these wonderful activities why not choose a stay in a pub as the ideal place to recharge your batteries after a long day out exploring the beautiful countryside. You can sit by the fire with a pint in your hand laughing the evening away with family and friends before you retire upstairs to your room.
