Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South. Town: Peacefully situated amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside, the rural village of Llanafan Fawr is home to an old church and Powys' oldest pub, The Red Lion, which serves fine, traditional fare. Set in the slopes of the Llanafan Valley and within easy distance of the equally beautiful Wye Valley, the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walking and mountain biking opportunities, though it also provides an excellent backdrop for fishing and bird-watching along the Wye and Irfon rivers. Builth Wells is also within easy driving distance and this picturesque market town provides a variety of interesting crafts stores and many collectors' fairs. The annual Royal Welsh Show is hosted in the town every July and is a colourful, fascinating fete. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the spectacular Black Mountains are easy to reach from the area, making this an ideal place for people looking to enjoy the outdoor life or simply relax against this stunning backdrop.More
