Located in beautiful mid Wales surrounded by breathtaking views, offering peace and tranquillity, Crowlwm is situated within easy walking distance of the heritage site of the Bryntail lead mine.
River running through the beautiful picturesque Bryntail Lead Mine within a short walking distance of the site.
The site is a small family run site with one double chalet (up to two extra children could be accommodated). The chalet is constructed principally from renewable sources with a strong emphasize on a neutral carbon footprint. The market town of Llanidloes is a short 4 mile drive away where there are shops, a launderette and a wide range of places to eat and drink or 'take aways' to tempt you.
The Market town of Llanidloes is the first town on the river seven and is steeped in history offering historic interest to the inquisitive. The market building itself is situated in the middle of town, it is understood that the current building was constructed between 1612 & 1622, although probably preceded by a much earlier market hall. There are also strong religious connections with the Weslien movement in the area, indeed Crowlwm, which is a grade two listed building, is generally acknowledged as the first house in England and Wales to have been used as a Sunday school.
The beautiful Clywedog reservoir (within a short distance of the chalets) offers fishing (permits available in the town) for brown and rainbow trout, sailing on the lake or just walking in the unspoilt country side.
There are a number of signposted walks these ranging in difficulty from a gentle stroll to more challenging walks for experienced walkers. There is also a walk in the haffern forest a few miles away with wheelchair access and decked walkways.

For those wishing for a little more activity golf is available just outside the town and the local activity centre offers water sports, absailing etc. Although offering some challenging hillsides, cycling is also available, bring your own bycle or hire one through a local company. For those with a passion for horse riding, the chalets are situated near one of the signed bridal ways through Wales. The chalets are well located as a touring base being in mid Wales with drives through the mountains to the sea and towns such as Aberystwyth, Machynlleth, Borth and Aberdovey to the West, Snowdon with its national park is to the North whilst the Breacon Beacons are to the south with the large cities of Swansea and Cardiff just over a two hour drive beyond. Well behaved pets are welcome on the site. Once you have exhausted yourself with all the activities why not just sit and relax in the piece and tranquillity on this secluded site and watch the multitude of birds and wildlife? All you need is the weather.
