Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Mid Wales, is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for being the smallest town in Great Britain, with a population of just under 700 people. Its rural setting is splendid, sitting in the Irfon Valley with the magnificent unspoilt scenery of the Cambrian Mountains to the North and the Eppynt range to the South.
We are also situated on the picturesque Heart of Wales Line, with 4 trains per day in each direction you can go as far as you like between Swansea and Shrewsbury.
The town may be small but we have a big heart! Not to mention, a lot going on. Llanwrtyd Wells is renowned for the high quality of good food to suit all tastes and budgets. The town has several nationally acclaimed award-winning chefs and we would be happy to recommend local restaurants to you. In fact, early April brings with it the Gourmet Food Festival.
In addition to the wealth of activities mentioned we are only 13 miles away from Builth Wells that is the home to the Royal Welsh Showground. The Eppynt is famous for its National Rally stages.
On the way to Brecon is the Red Kite Conservation Centre and once you get there (25 miles from us) you can enjoy the Brecon Jazz Festival (August) and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Also for those who love literature and Antiques, Hay-on Wye, with the Hay Festival, is not too far away.
