Easy to reach, Llanidloes is situated only two hours drive from Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff, with the national rail network running close by. Yet Llani is a million miles away from the stresses and strains so prevalent amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life.
So accommodate yourself to a slower pace and relax amidst some of the most unspoilt and undiscovered scenery Wales has to offer.
Llanidloes sits just off the A470 main road about 30 miles from the English border. From Birmingham and the Midlands, take the M54 through Telford, A458 and A483 through Shrewsbury, Welshpool and Newtown. From the south, the A470 offers a spectacular cross-country route from Cardiff.
