The village of Trefeglwys sits in the heart of Mid Wales on the B4569 between Caersws and Llanidloes. The river Trannon flows past Trefeglwys on its way to its confluence with the River Severn near Caersws. Surrounded by beautiful Welsh scenery and with close proximity to the historic towns of Llanidloes, Rhayader, and Newtown, Trefeglwys is in a perfect location for exploring this section of Wales.
Walkers will enjoy Trefeglwys, with access to many trails through wooded valleys and along the banks of the Trannon. To the north (4 miles as the crow flies) a trio of lakes, Llyn Tarw, Llyn Du and Llyn Mawr offer leisurely walking and plentiful wildlife. It's a place of standing stones and tall skies - a walk on the wild side. The lakes are popular with anglers where trout (from Llyn Tarw and Llyn Du) and pike and perch (from Llyn Mawr) can be caught.
To the south west (4 miles as the crow flies) is Llyn Clywedog Reservoir which some say is the most beautiful lake in Wales, offering stunning scenery and wonderful fishing. There is an abundance of wildlife with Red Kites, Buzzards, Canada Geese, Peregrine Falcons, and Ospreys.
The village church, St Michael's, attracts many visitors of its own. Although the church was founded in the 12th Century by Bleddrws and known as a 'monasterium' (suggesting a monastic link), the present building only dates back to around 1863. The timber bell frame and supports (perhaps of the 17th Century) were retained from the earlier church, as was a 15th Century bell.
Further afield, you can visit Newtown, with its W H Smith Museum, Textiles Museum and Oriel Davies Gallery; and Machynlleth with its 'Clock Tower' and quirky, independent shops.
There are plenty of self-catering cottages in and around Trefeglwys, many nestled in the countryside, whilst guesthouses and hotels are situated in Machynlleth, Llanwnog and Dolfor.
