Around the area

Radnorshire is one of the old counties, which together with Brecknockshire and Montgomeryshire make up the county of Powys in Mid Wales. Radnorshire is a county of rolling hills with river valleys, farmsteads, quiet country lanes and historic market towns. There is something for everyone to enjoy, the spectacular Elan Valley with its amazing dams, Offa’s Dyke and Glyndwr’s Way together with footpaths and bridleways and open hill make for wonderful scenic walkingHay on Wye has the internationally renowned Literary Festival in May but is well worth a visit year round for its second hand bookshops, good shopping and cafés and restaurants.

Llandrindod Wells, Builth Wells, Kington, Knighton and Presteigne are all small local towns each with its own individual style.  They all have local shops as well as some of the larger chains and supermarkets.  If eating out is your pleasure, then there are pubs and restaurants to suit every taste and pocket. Throughout the year there are events and activities from the world famous Royal Welsh Show in June and the Hay Festival  to local agricultural shows, festivals, trotting races, ploughing matches and fetes and fairs.  Travelling around Radnorshire is easy, the “A” roads are wide and mainly quiet and once off the main roads you can explore the many small lanes and byways that take you to the hidden parts of Radnorshire.

Guestbook

“OUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO STAY!” This was our second stay (and, hopefully, not the last by a long way) at Straw Cottage and we loved it just as much this Spring as last Summer. It is the best place I've ever found to give ourselves a much needed break from the pressures of modern life, yet it is still comfortable, cosy and just lovely. We kept nice and warm on the squashy sofas around the log burning stove in the evenings and played many family board games. During the day, we made outdoor fires in the fire pit, the kids and the dog played in the stream and the woods and rode their bikes, while the adults relaxed on the porch with books, magazines and guitar playing. And we all love the tree swing! Thank you to the lovely hosts, Margot and Anthony, for providing such a wonderful holiday experience.
