Powis Castle is a medieval castle rising dramatically above its celebrated garden.
Powis Castle garden is world-famous. Laid out under the influence of Italian and French styles, it retains its original lead statues and an orangery on the terraces. High on a rock above the terraces, the castle, originally built circa 1200, began life as a medieval fortress.

WELSHPOOL & LLANFAIR LIGHT RAILWAY
The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway
The Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway was opened in 1903 to link the market town of Welshpool to the rural community of Llanfair Caereinion. The steam railway uses 2 foot 6 inch narrow gauge. It now provides a tourist service for all the family. Built as a Light Railway to avoid some of the costs of railway construction, the narrow gauge allows for tight curves and steep gradients, enabling the line to follow the contours of the countryside.
Hafren is a mid-scale professional theatre which seats over 550. It features a varied repertoire including plays, opera, music, entertainment, comedy, film and conferences. Theatre Hafren is a 10 minute drive from Maesmawr Hall.

The views are stunning and you are never far away from points of interest.
About Hafren Forest
Hafren Forest takes its name from Afon Hafren which is the Welsh name for the River Severn.
The source of the River Severn is in a deep, blanket-peat bog on the slopes of Plynlimon, 800 metres outside Hafren Forest’s boundary.
You can walk to the source of the Severn and to Blaenhafren Falls from Hafren Forest.
