Welshpool area guide

 

Welshpool: The Gateway to Mid Wales is located 6 Miles from the Shropshire border and is flanked by a picturesque, meandering stretch of the River Severn. Welshpool or Trallwng in Welsh has a long history dating back to the 13th Century.

Now a charming market town with a population approaching 10,000 Welshpool has so much to offer its inhabitants and visitors both old and new.

The Iconic Powys Castle sits to the South West of the town and the parkland surrounding the castle can be accessed by the public directly from the town centre. Currently the residence of the Earl of Powys and a regular retreat for HRH The Prince of Wales, Powys Castle is under the care of the National Trust and the castle and its grounds can be visited when open throughout the year.

The town centre itself has undergone recent refurbishment and updating, and with further plans for redevelopment of the old Smithfield site, the future is looking very bright indeed for this bustling market town. The centre is host to a street market on Mondays and the market village located within the Town hall is open 6 days a week. There are any number of quality bars, restaurants, hotels and cafes throughout the town offering something for all tastes and requirements.

The Town has many active sports clubs including football, rugby and cricket all located at the Maes Y Dre or Town fields. The golf club is located approximately 4 miles from the town offering a challenging course and stunning views. With the river Severn on the outskirts, and the Montgomeryshire canal running through the town, there is also plenty on offer for keen anglers.

Due to the location of the town, the rest of the UK is extremely accessible. Welshpool is within half an hour of the delightful medieval Shropshire town of Shrewsbury. The motorway network can be accessed in under half an hour, the Midlands are within an hours drive and Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham airports can also be accessed within and hour and a half. There are rail links from the town and Welshpool is even host to the Mid Wales airport located on the outskirts.

There are a number of primary schools located within the town and also a reputable secondary school. Other facilities and attractions include a leisure centre, a theatre, a host of museums, a cinema and even an active light, steam railway.

Of course it is not just the Town itself which provides attraction. There are any number of villages and satellite towns located around Welshpool. Of particular merit are Leighton, Berriew and Montgomery which is now even home to a Michelin star restaurant

The scenery surrounding the town is also of great appeal with the Breidden hills just 4 miles away offering fabulous walks and stunning views. In little over an hours journey by car you find yourself in the stunning Snowdonia National Park and you can reach The Cardigan Bay coastline offering arguably some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the UK.

Whether looking to move into the town itself or to a more rural location in the surroundings this most wonderful and accessible area of Mid Wales really does offer something for everyone.
