Powis Castle and Garden – The world-famous garden, overhung with clipped yews, shelters rare and tender plants. Laid out under the influence of Italian and French styles, it retains its original lead statues and an orangery on the terraces. High on a rock above the terraces, the castle, originally built circa 1200, began life as a medieval fortress.

Offa’s Dyke Path is one of twelve designated National Trails. It is the only national trail to follow a man-made feature. Built by Offa, King of Mercia between 757 and 796 AD the dyke formed the boundary between England & Wales, running 182 miles from Prestatyn in the north to Sedbury, near Chepstow in the south. Men from the border country along the Mercian (English) side all had to contribute: they could send food or they could build 128cm of dyke.

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.



Great pub, friendly staff, guest ales and a very good lunch/evening menu at affordable prices.
Nothing too much trouble, and the locals are very welcoming. We use it often for social drinking with friends.


Spotless, clean, great food, smart bedrooms, all in perfect condition. Very comfy bed. Staff friendly and helpful. Great value for money. Varied menu catering for all tastes. Breakfast cooked to order


Lovely staff....from the moment we arrived to drinks in the bar later. Great bedroom....looked like a recent refurbish and very nicely done. Beautiful setting in the prettiest little village and great value all round. We will definitely return.


Lovely hidden gem.
Off the beaten track from Welshpool, we turned up on an international rugby day and were made to feel like locals. We just went with the flow and everyone made us feel welcome: the evening meal was good, and the room (1) was fresh, airy, warm and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, and staff were easy to talk to without being intrusive. Will definitely be back.


visited the Talbot after about 3 years absence due to illness and the lockdowns, we received a wonderful warm welcome from Janet, Jackie the landlady and Jill, we very much appreciated the fact we were still remembered from the our last visit,
we enjoyed superb home cooked food and some perfectly served real ale, all excellent in term of quality and value.
the Talbot has had a lovely refurbishment it is spotlessly clean throughout, it is a genuine traditional hospitality establishment, a great asset to the local community and for visitors to the beautiful village and surrounding area, 5 star in everyway it has very professional staff and landlady ,a warm friendly atmosphere , home cooked food and fine beers , also dogs very welcome in the bar.
Give this place a try its the very best in berriew for sure
