Set amidst lovely rolling countryside, the rural hamlet of Llangunllo is only seven miles from the market town of Knighton, which straddles the English/Welsh border. This is superb country for walking and cycling. Offa's Dyke passes through Knighton and the Glyndwr's Way National Trail passes through Llangunllo itself.
