Visit Llanfair Caereinion and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Llanfair Caereinion, Powys. Half village and half town, Llanfair on the Banwy river is a most pleasing place. It has the indefinable quality produced by a long and tenacious history, but little in the last century or so has come to disturb it. It has a completely l8th century air, yet is unique. In the 19th century it was a place of professional quietude, and it continues this into our own time. Anglers resort to it, to the stream and the bridge, for there is no place where the spirit of Izaak Walton is more contemplatively present than here; and the beauty of the vale of Meifod is best seen from Caereinion. The most ancient part of its name is worth dwelling on, for, although it keeps its memory of the fact secret, Llanfair-Caereinion was the site of a Roman fort, a smallish outpost set forward from the triangle between Lavrobinta (now Forden), Mediomanum (now Caersws), and the rather larger outpost at Cae Noddfa. From Mediomanum a road can be traced heading for Caereinion, but its last passages have not been recovered. Neither can the Roman name for Caereinion be confirmed with any certainty. But it seems to have watched the major way from Viroconium (Wroxeter) to the important lead-yielding area of Caersws, and it probably had a westward reach to Pennal. That it should have continued in active life to the present day suggests that, as a guard-point on the land-bridge between Dovey and Severn, it was used in the sub-Roman period. If Einion is to be reckoned, as Sir John Rhys asserted, among those successors of Cunedda who stabilized the centre of Wales between A.D. 400 and 600, it may have been here, and on a Roman foundation, that he built a useful fortalice eastwards from the valley Cwm Einon that lies off the Dovey estuary on the Roman road going from Taliesin to Machynlleth.
