Builth Wells

Situated in a scenic Wye Valley location, Builth Wells in Powys lies close to the River Wye and River Irfon. Thousands of visitors flock to the town each July for the annual Royal Welsh Show in the nearby showground and other attractions include the Hawksdrift Falconry Centre and the 14th Century St Mary's Church.

The Llywelyn Mural dedicated to Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the last native Prince of Wales is famously held here in Builth Wells and one of the few post boxes bearing the Royal Cypher of King Edward VIII sits in the town. Builth Wells is a popular base for walking in the Wye Valley and local walks feature around the Groe Riverside Park with its six arched bridge spanning the River Wye. During your stay, enjoy some home-made meals made from local produce, including ice-cream at Drovers Tea Rooms on the High Street.

Builth Wells offers an excellent range of accommodation including country holiday cottages with hot tubs, luxury manor house hotels, welcoming B&Bs and pet friendly guest houses. Holiday cottages on working farms are available and can often to be booked together for groups or larger families; ideal if you are travelling with a group attending the Royal Welsh Show.
