Powys County in the Mid Wales

We hope you brought a jacket and cap for a stroll through Powys County in Mid Wales. If a dusting of snow on the grazing fields beckons, then we highly recommend venturing to the southern portion of the county, where the Brecon Beacons—the name of a mountain range and a national park—give a dose of wild Wales, with Old Red Sandstone peaks jutting up from the wide, grassy valleys.

Powys is a principal area, local-government county and preserved county in Mid Wales. It is named after the successor Kingdom of Powys, which formed after the Romans withdrew from Britain.
Area: 2,000 sq miles (5,179 km²)
Travel tip: Wales’ spectacular scenic rural heartland, and the site of Brecon Beacons National Park, Powys is a lush land of verdant mountain valleys, craggy caves and quirky towns. The staunchly nationalistic area offers appealing outdoors opportunities. Canter on horseback through the rugged Brecon Beacons mountain range. Walk or … @tripadvisor
