Why we've chosen Gwaenynog Farmhouse B&B, Powys, Wales

Gwaenynog is a gorgeous stone farmhouse in a peaceful and quiet area, located between Lake Vyrnwy and Welshpool.

We’re ideally located for visiting Lake Vyrnwy, Powis Castle, Llanfair Light Railway, Pistyll Rhaeadr, Snowdonia or the beaches at Cardigan Bay; or you can head east into Shropshire and visit where the industrial revolution started at Ironbridge, go visit a Victorian farm or go to Darwin’s birthplace, Shrewsbury – to name just a few destinations which can be easily reached from us. Past guests have even visited the North Wales coast and Anglesey on day trips...

There’s a spacious guest lounge with beams and an open inglenook fireplace, where we have a large TV with Freeview and DVD, where you can unwind and take in the views. Our grounds are pasture, woods or marshland, offering sanctuary to a multitude of wildlife, including many birds – some of them rare.

Our rooms are: super king-size (which splits into a twin bedded rooms), a standard double and a lovely 4 poster (which is also a family room with 2 x 2’6” beds) or our 4’ single bedroom - all with en-suites, and include flatscreen TV with Freeview and DVD, a choice of beverages, luxurious showers and very comfortable beds. Each room is unique with its name taken from the local bird life – Peregrine, Heron, Owl or Woodpecker; all of which can been seen from the rooms (if they’re co-operating!).

We offer evening meals by arrangement, or there are some fantastic places to dine in our local area; all within 30 minutes drive.

Why is this a greener holiday?

To truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: the nearest train station is Welshpool and the owners are happy to collect guests from the station by prior arrangement. Onsite the owners have taken a number of green measures to reduce the environmental impact of their tourism business. Low energy light bulbs are used throughout as they burn out. Spare or excess wood is used for heating in the house. They use eco friendly cleaning and laundry products. The owners shop locally as much as possible. They recycle as much as possible and compost food waste. They try to avoid using chemicals in the garden. Additionally, the owners do quite a few things to enhance the wildlife in the garden.

"This is an understated B&B in a remote area with a kind, considerate couple at the helm; the sheep, farm buildings and collies bouncing around the place remind you that you are staying on a former working farm. “We didn’t want to be in a tourist hotspot,” says Fiona. “For us, opening a B&B was a lifestyle choice as much as anything else. We know that if we’re happy it reflects on our guests”. And it’s obviously working: the guest book was packed with praise from delighted, returning guests."
