The Spa town of Llandrindod Wells is the county town and administrative centre for Powys. Known locally as 'Llandod' it was historically the capital town of the former shire county of Radnorshire and often referred to as 'The gateway to Mid Wales', surrounded by breathtaking landscape and scattered with an abundance of archaeological and historical sites of interest.

The town as the name suggests, sprang up around the local springs during the mid 18th century drawing visitors to the area for the 'healing qualities' of the waters. The town grew in size and esteem experiencing large scale development creating the many aesthetically beautiful buildings which remain today. Originally built as guest houses and hotels to accommodate the large number of tourists, they are now shops, businesses and apartments, but with no less grandeur than intended all those years ago.

The spectacular and different architecture of the town includes many ornate styles dating from the boom periods, the Victorian and Edwardian eras and Art Deco movement, buildings that have continued to intrigue and attract people to the town for centuries and will continue to do so.

With a population of 5000 the town offers all expected amenities including a good range of shops, businesses and supermarkets, healthcare facilities and hospitals. For families - nurseries, 2 primary schools, secondary school and college of further education. For sports fans - competitive football and rugby clubs, a swimming pool and leisure centre, indoor and outdoor international bowling green and an 18 hole golf course which enjoys panoramic views over the town and valley. For thespians - The Pavillion and Albert Hall now hosting shows from local dramatics and the Annual Drama Festival but once graced by international performers and royalty. For Culturalists - sculpture trails through the town taking in statues and movement; museums including the National Cycle Museum featuring cycles dating back to the early 1800's and The Radnorshire Museum depicting local life through the ages. For nature lovers - a host of areas of outstanding natural beauty offering a wealth of wild flora and fauna being renowned amongst the walking, riding and fishing fraternity. Leisure and tourism still play a large part in the local economy with a good range of cafes, tea rooms, and restaurants and varied accommodation from B&B's and guest houses to 4 star hotels all catering for visitors to the areas.

Within the town are the Rock Park and Lake, whilst close by is the noted scenery of the Wye Valley, the Elan Valley Dams, various hill ranges and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Road and rail links are good with the A483 trunk road passing through the town as well as the station for the Heart of Wales Railway Line (Swansea to Shrewsbury). Being centrally located within the country Llandrindod Wells is also an ideal base from which to explore the marches border towns to the east, the West Wales coastline, the larger cities of South Wales and the unspoilt North Wales countryside, all within two hours drive.

The nearby villages and hamlets complement the town itself creating a wonderful mix of property types and cross section of characterful people within this welcoming community. The ready availability of fundamental healthcare needs remains tempting to those retiring, whilst others simply and want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities as well as families wishing a better quality of life, to raise their children in a semi-rural environment.
