Llanwrtyd Wells is unique as a destination in its location, attraction and personality.
Snuggled at the heart of The Heart of Wales it is a gateway to the largest area of unspoilt countryside in the whole of the UK, including the magnificent Cambrian Region, Abergwesyn Valley, Epynt Mountains, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. Its position, nestling in the Irfon Valley, offers a diverse landscape expanding out in every direction; forestry, mountain ranges, glacial valley, waterfalls, winding roads, bridle paths.
It is the perfect base for touring the whole of Wales. It’s the perfect base for exploring and discovering hidden gems. It’s the perfect base to find yourself at one and alone with nature; to find peace and tranquillity; flora and fauna; wildlife and bird life.
These activities continue today with tourists coming here to explore our stunning and challenging landscape. It also continues here alongside our penchant for the eccentric, with Llanwrtyd Wells being the birthplace of quirky events such as The Real Ale Wobble; Man versus Horse (originally also verses bike); Bog Snorkelling and, more recently, Mountain Bike Chariot Racing and the bi-annual World Alternative Games.
As a town, we are recognised as the smallest in the UK, with little over 700 residents, we are smaller than most villages! Our heart is huge. Accommodation providers offer amazing value and exceptional service relying heavily on recommendation and repeat business (a great plus for the traveller that we are not on the tourist trail).
Despite our size we have 3 pubs and 4 award-winning restaurants. Foodies indeed, offering quarterly farmers markets with locally produced, grown and prepared delicacies; and an annual Food Fair to tickle your taste buds. There’s even a cookery school if that’s your passion.
The inspirational landscape, with its wild ponies, sheep, red kites and diverse bird life draws artists and artisans to its heart. It’s a great location to visit amazing artists; discover hidden artisans and off the beaten track art havens.
Whatever your reason for travel, there is something for you a spectacular landscape away. But if you want to park the car and explore on foot, bike or train we have enough at hand to keep you entertained.
