Local Attractions


Llanidloes is one of the great little market towns of Mid Wales. The first town on the River Severn... and we believe the prettiest.
With its rich and varied history, the town has much for visitors to see and enjoy. The Historical Old Market Hall in the town centre, quilting exhibition centre, Museum, Church & Chapels many shops and restaurants, also walks around the town.

Positioned near Dyffryn Glyn, Llyn Clywedog is an area of stunning natural beauty, which is also rich in history. The reservoir is perhaps the finest fishery in Mid Wales.
The lake is amply stocked with brown and rainbow trout, the management of which and the fishing rights are the preserve of the Llanidloes Angling Society. Sailing on the lake is run by the Clywedog Sailing Club.


The Forest takes its name from Afon Hafren (River Severn) which rises in a deep, blanket peat bog, 800m outside its boundary, high above, on the slopes of Pumlumon. Almost immediately it begins its long journey to the Bristol Channel, passing first through woodlands of pine and spruce.
It is possible to walk to the Source of the Severn from Hafren Forest. The Severn Way, Britain's longest riverside walk, begins at the Source.

History lovers will be delighted by the treasures of Mid Wales, all of which are easily accessible by car from Dyffryn Glyn. The roads of Mid Wales lead to beautiful scenic views of the Welsh countryside that has changed little over the years. You will discover historic ruins and Churches that date back into ancient history.

Glyndŵr's Way celebrates Welsh cultural and natural history and along the 135 miles of the walk you can explore the rolling farmland, open moorland, forests, lakes and reservoirs of Powys and re-live the adventures of Owain Glyndŵr, the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales.
