Visit Llanbrynmair and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Llanbrynmair, Powys. Some 8 miles from Machynlleth, Llanhrynmair (Hill Church of Mary) lies in the valley of the River Twymyn. Though a small and quiet village, it has attractions of many sorts. The falls of the Twymyn from the crags of the West Plynlinom slopes are impressive; the church is ancient and has an unusual roof. From Llanbrynmair is the most accessible route to the stone circles and prehistoric hutments that have been allowed to survive in the upper Rheidol valley.
Generations ago, Llanbrynmair was important as a market centre for the sheep-raising industry, and played its part in the Civil Wars of the 17th century. One of its older and larger houses keeps a reminiscence of Cromwell's days. Beneath later panelling were discovered the portraits of the former owner and his wife, supporters of the Royalist cause. Both pictures were riddled with musket-shot. The Ironside soldiers, having failed to capture the family, had the satisfaction of executing them at least in effigy.
