Experience Powys like a local
Wales is awash with castles, but both English and traditionally Welsh varieties exist. If you wish to discover a ‘proper’ Welsh castle then Dolforwyn Castle near Montgomery is for you. Whilst there, Montgomery Castle of Norman origin is also worth a gander. With a Michelin Star in hand, The Checkers in Montgomery is perhaps the most renowned and closest thing you will find to world-class fine dining. To truly get the full experience, cottages in Powys are unquestionably the most stereotypical Mid Wales style of accommodation. One of the main pulls for tourists visiting the Powys region is the Brecon Beacons mountain range, which lies just below the region. Get your walking boots at the ready for hill walking, strap your harness on for some climbing and bring a pocket full of sugar lumps for some horse-riding; the Brecon Beacons offer almost endless outdoor activities. Keep an eye out for regular food festivals and farmers’ markets in the Powys region to sample some local delicacies.
