Find out more about Powys

There is a real sense of culture and identity around Powys and no more so is this evident than in its culinary specialities. Welsh Black Beef, local fish and game or even tender mountain lamb are all things to try in the area and there are numerous farmers markets spread throughout the county that offer local produce with a distinctly Welsh twist. The market town of Brecon is a great example of this and it offers a local farmers market on the second Saturday of every month barring August.

Indeed, the small town is a part of living history and it features an 11th century castle and an impressive cathedral that was constructed by the Normans. Currently it has the biggest cresset stone in Britain with its 30 candle holding cups, in addition to being the final resting place of Welsh princes and Norman lords over the years. Just outside of Brecon are various walking and trekking routes. The town is set in the backdrop of hilly and rugged terrain with an intense landscape just waiting to be explored. Penyfan, one of the highest points in the south of Britain at just under 900 meters, is also in the area.

Cyclists will love the challenging variety of routes on offer throughout the county. You can find relaxing trails or more craggy, mountain bike ways such as the Cli-Machx trail in the Dyfi Forest across the county. There are 3 Cycle Break Centres in Powys that offer bicycle hire and their own routes with maps and guides. Even though the county itself is landlocked, it enjoys flowing rivers and canals that provide a fantastic opportunity for water sports such as kayaking, canoeing and water skiing.

An interesting location within the county is the so called 'town of books' otherwise known as Hay-on-Wye. The little market town has built up a reputation as a second hand and antiquarian book depository with no less than 30 independent outlets in the area. The traditional market held every Thursday in the town is visited by locals and tourists alike and offers fresh local produce such as meat, cheese and fish as well as bakery items, antiques and, of course, book sales.

The county of Powys is a real highlight in the region. There aren't many other places that have such an abundance of mountains and hills and the sprawling nature of its landscapes and terrain is a sight to behold. Nestled deep in the valleys are small towns with activities and interests for everyone from millennia old structures to traditional markets. Powys might be overshadowed sometimes by counties and tourist spots in other parts of the country; however as a place of interest and natural beauty spot, it more than holds its own.
