Where you’ll be

Powys, Wales, United Kingdom

Holly Bush Cottage is situated three miles from the market town of Welshpool, and on its boundary is Powis Castle - a stunning National Trust property steeped in history and boasting glorious gardens. You can get a trip on the scenic Rhiw Valley Light Railway, steam heaven! We are 6 miles from the beautiful town of Montgomery where you can see the castle ruins and enjoy a meal at The Dragon or The Chequers. Alternatively Shrewsbury has much to offer from river cruises, cinema and theatre trips.

Fairbourne Beach stretches a mile long and is good for picnics and swimming and Barmouth has many places to eat. They are both just over an hours drive away. You can also walk up Cader Idris and the southern end of Snowdonia National Park. The old slate mining village of Blaenau Ffestiniog offers an unique experience of cave trampolining and zip wiring. Check out Surf Snowdonia for inland surfing and other adrenaline activities.

Lake Vyrnwy is a 40 minute drive and offers mountain biking, canoeing, horse riding and is a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the birdwatching.

The Long Mynd is just over the border in Shropshire, it is an AONB. Climb 536m Stiperstones and afterwards have a delicious meal in the traditional 5 star listed Stiperstones Inn.
