My Welshpool Recommendations


Welshpool is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful sights of

Mid Wales. Discover countryside canal walks, modern art, historic

castles and heritage railways. During your visit I would recommend

you visit Powis Castle, take a heli flight with Whizzard Helicopters

or have a jaunt down the Montgomery Canal.

revitalising and breathing life back into these lovely
inns, creating elegant, comfortable and well-priced
