Llanwrtyd Wells is Britain's
smallest town but it has a big heart. Llanwrtyd hosts
a wide variety of events throughout the year which appeal
to all kinds of people.
For peace of mind we have a bike lock up and wash down facility. Should the welsh weather have had the better of you, we have a drying and washing service available.
Mid-Wales offers some of the finest scenery, ranging from rolling hills, woodland and country lanes to open hills, reservoirs and mountains. If you enjoy walking then this is the place to be. At the cottage we have the local maps and already walked routes for the area. You can walk on your own or join one of the walking events we have here in Llanwrtyd Wells at various times of the year.

Mid Wales was home to the last remaining Native Red Kites. Now, due to the hard work of the Conservation bodies here in Wales, Red Kites are once again in ascendance and now we have the greatest density and diversity of birds of prey in southern Britain.
At Gigrin Farm the Red Kites are fed daily at 3pm (summer time) and 2pm ( in winter), every day of the year. The number of Kites visiting the station can vary from a few dozen to more than four hundred, depending on the weather and the time of year. Gigrin Farm is approximately 30 minutes drive from the cottage.
