About the location


Hay-on-Wye 5.5 miles; Builth Wells 12.5 miles; Hereford 25 miles.

The pretty village of Painscastle lies just five and a half miles from the famous town of Hay-on-Wye, and takes its name from its ancient fortress, where today only large earthworks remain. Standing only three miles from the England/Wales border, the village boasts a charming real ale inn serving good food, and is surrounded by scenic countryside. Under six miles away is the historic market town of Hay-on-Wye. Settled beside the River Wye, it’s renowned for its world-famous Hay Festival of Literature and with its many specialist bookshops, antiques shops, restaurants and cafes, it’s a popular destination for holidaymakers wishing to enjoy the leisure activities and beautiful scenery of the Wye Valley. Builth Wells can be reached within a pleasant drive, and is home to an 18-hole golf course, a pony trekking centre and a selection of amenities, plus each July it plays host to the Royal Welsh Show. The surrounding countryside provides excellent walking, cycling, bird watching, fishing and canoeing opportunities, amongst many more, together with a variety of tourist attractions, including the Black Mountains, The Three Castles Walk, Offa's Dyke pathway, the Mortimer Trail and the lovely walk to Hergest Ridge, which is said to have inspire the music of Elgar. The ancient city of Hereford, the epitome of picturesque England, lies just over half an hour’s drive away, with its magnificent cathedral housing its famous chained library and Mappa Mundi, and medieval bridge set over the winding River Wye.
