About the location

FELINDRE

Beguildy 2 miles; Knucklas 7.3 miles; Knighton 10 miles; Newtown 11 miles.

The small village of Felindre is set in a rural location amidst peaceful countryside between the market towns of Newtown and Knighton on the Wales/England border. With a local pub serving drinks, the village is in a fantastic location for walkers with an abundance of walks and cycle routes over 6000-acres of Crown estate nature reserve providing fantastic views and where red kite can often be spotted and grouse are being re-introduced. Passing the doorstep is the beautiful Glyndwr’s Way; a 135 mile National Trail which travels through open countryside, farmland, along rivers and lakes and through forests tracking the history of Owain Glyndwr visiting many of the sites connected with his ill-fated campaign for an independent Welsh Nation in the early 15th century. The nearby village of Beguildy offers a pub serving good food, a village shop and a Post Office. Some of the best examples of the 8th century frontier earthwork built by King Offa can be seen close by with easy access to the Offa's Dyke; now a National Trail that roughy follows the current border between England and Wales and offering fabulous opportunities for spectacular walking. Further afield, the village of Knucklas boasts an ancient 13th century castle mound and an imposing viaduct built in 1865, complete with an impressive 13-arch span. Set on the Heart of Wales railway line between Shropshire and Swansea, why not leave your car behind and venture further into Wales by train, enjoying beautiful rural scenery along the way? A short drive away is the market town of Knighton, which is a celebrated location for walking, horse riding and cycling with Offa's Dyke passing through the town. Knighton also offers a farmers' market once a month selling local Shropshire and Welsh produce. Visit magnificent Powis Castle with its celebrated gardens, the spectacular Water-Break-Its-Neck waterfall, the Elan Valley dams and the lovely towns of Bishop’s Castle, Leominster and medieval Ludlow, with its famous 13th century castle, ancient buildings and wonderful restaurants. Also visit Llandindrod Wells and Builth Wells, which boasts the Royal Welsh Showground which hosts a variety of events throughout the year. A wonderfully peaceful location for exploring beautiful Mid Wales and Shropshire.
