The gateway to Mid Wales is situated in the Severn valley and surrounded by glorious Welsh countryside, yet only a few miles from the English border.

The market town of Welshpool is a perfect stop off point for holiday makers heading to the Welsh coast and in need of refreshments which can be supplied by the many local eateries. There is ample car parking and free toilets.

Better still, stay in this beautiful part of Wales and use it as a base to explore the surrounding area. Local places of interest include Lake Vyrnwy, Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall – one of the seven wonders of Wales, the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway and Powis Castle.The coast can be reached in just over an hour and both Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons in two hours.
