Living in Welshpool: The Local Area Guide

Welshpool is billed as the location ‘where Wales begins,’ positioned just 4 miles away from the Wales-England border. This classic market town is tucked into the picturesque Severn Valley, with Long Mountain and the green rolling hills of Montgomeryshire surrounding it.

It has long been an important area for agriculture, and still retains the largest sheep market in all of Europe. Its rural location lends itself well to outdoor pursuits, from horseback riding to golf and fishing. Historic sites including the famous Powis Castle are at its doorstep, and a working steam train provides a leisurely way to access the scenery. There are many examples of well-preserved 16th century architecture, with one of the best being the timber-framed Mermaid Inn on the High Street.
