Guilsfield is a tiny treasure of a village just three miles north of the market town of Welshpool. It is a fantastic place to base yourself for an exploration of mid wales and borders countryside and an even better place just to hole up in and indulge yourself.

Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway
Opened in 1903 to link the market town of Welshpool to the rural community of Llanfair Caereinion, this 2 foot 6 inch narrow gauge steam railway now provides a tourist service for all the family and a welcome change from the rush of every day life.

Derwen Garden Centre
The Derwen, one of the finest independent garden centres in the country, is owned and run by the Joseph family. With a newly extended restaurant, farm shop and world of interiors, the Derwen Garden Centre is a lovely place to visit.

Lake Vyrnwy
Just on the edge of The Snowdonia National Park and south of Lake Bala, Lake Vyrnwy is set amidst the remote and beautiful Berwyn Mountains. With spectacular waterfalls, and unspoilt open countryside, a visit to Lake Vyrnwy is a wonderful day out for all the family. There are plenty of activities too, including boating, adventure activities, cycle hire, walking and horse trails. There are also local craft shops to visit and excellent places to eat.

There are a wealth of walks in the area to choose from including Offa's Dyke National Trail, Glyndwr's Way and the Anne Griffiths Way.
