Llanidloes sits on the banks of the River Severn in Powys Mid Wales. To the east are the Welsh Border lands with the towns of Newtown and Montgomery. To the west nothing but hills, moors, valleys, lakes and the mountain of Plynlimon (Pumlumon) at 752m. Which is just fantastic if you like walking, climbing, mountain biking, bird spotting, horse riding, fishing, sailing and many more outdoor activities. Yes, Llanidloes is the perfect base for all these activities.
Cyclists and walkers enjoy many trails around the Llanidloes landscape including the circular route from Llanidloes via the Severn Valley, the Hafren Forest, Llyn Clywedog and returning to Llanidloes via the Clywedog Valley, a round trip of approximately 19 miles. There are over thirty separate routes for walkers around the town, which are clearly way marked and signposted, linking Llanidloes with the smaller surrounding villages of Llandinam, Llangurig, and Trefeglwys and range from just a few miles to a good day's walk. Long distance walkers will appreciate the two National Trails that meet at Llanidloes, with both Glyndwr's Way and the Severn Way meandering through the town.
