 ' A seriously addictive option for outdoor enthusiasts...’

Llanidloes (pronounced Lan-id-loyce) is the first town on the River Severn and gateway to the Cambrian Mountains. We can boast of Celtic myth with the legend of water nymph Sabrina; culture and heritage; our Old Market Hall is unique in Wales (we’ll let our timber-framed exhibition explain why), and we have over 150 miles of renovated bridleways and footpaths, in addition to the more well known Severn Way, Glyndŵrs Way and Wye Valley Walk. 

In short, Llanidloes is an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts. But if you don’t enjoy donning your boots the scenery is stunning enough to just sit back, relax and drink it all in. We have more pubs per square mile than Glasgow and some great places to eat, such as a bistro and a vegetarian whole food café.

We could boast about all of this, but Llanidloes isn’t a boastful sort of place; perhaps that’s why we’re still relatively hidden. Instead we’d like you to come and judge for yourself and let the town do the talking. 


Visiting Llanidloes
The main streets of Llanidloes were laid out in 1280 in the shape of a cross and the former woollen mill and church of St Idloes can still be seen today. The church’s massive west tower and its arches from nearby Abbey Cwm Hir, to the more recent addition of its millennium window, are all sights to be seen.  

As well as the cafes and restaurants we also have two butchers and small independent shops selling a range of local produce for you to feast upon. Art galleries and craft and antique shops can also be found here with many local artists drawing inspiration from the scenery around them.

We have log cabins with outdoor hot tubs, farmhouse B&B’s, self catering get-aways and award winning camping and caravan sites all in and around Llanidloes and the ‘Arwystli Country’. ‘Arwystli’ (pronounced ‘R’ – whist – lee) was once an ancient mediaeval Kingdom in Mid Wales.
