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.

Granary Cottage

Guestbook

The Ultimate Brain De-Tox! This was our second visit to the Straw Cottage at totally different times of the year and both occasions were absolutely brilliant. The total absence of traffic and general town noise was a total delight. The burbling of the stream and melodic chirping of the birds almost meditative. As last time the cottage was superbly well stocked with all your needs for a peaceful treat and the hosts fabulously friendly and very helpful. Margot's anti-rain dance also worked a treat! If you keep a watch mid morning and afternoon at the tree with the swing to the side then you might be lucky enough to spot the resident tree-creeper. Also keep the veranda table well stocked all day with peanuts and you will keep a pair of nuthatches very happy. Fabulous stay, many thanks.
