Powys

Powys may be the largest county in Wales, but it is also the least densely populated with vast tracts of wild and beautiful moorland in north, mid and south Powys such as the scenic Elan Valley or the stunning and wild Brecon Beacons. Powys is predominantly a rural area covered in small traditional family farms offer delightful farm cottage holidays in beautiful secluded locations. The unspoilt, quiet and undeveloped nature of the area makes it a truly inspiring place to walk, cycle, birdwatch, experience traditional farming and other outdoor activities. There are no urban conurbations in Powys, just small and sleepy market towns such as Brecon, Rhayader and Machynlleth. Visitors come to the county for its fantastic landscapes, quiet roads, small scale attractions, wonderful wildlife and a friendly welcome.
