Farm Holiday Cottages
Wales Tourist Board Four Stars
As both the rivers Vyrnwy and Banwy flow through Newbridge Farm, it is not surprising that this farm has built a solid reputation amongst anglers, who enjoy pursuing wild brown trout, grayling, chubb, and salmon in the season.
Now visitors can further enjoy this relatively undiscovered corner of rural Wales by staying in one of the newly built farm cottages, within just 200 yards of the rivers. Accommodating up to six people, the cottages are fully equipped, and enjoy fine views across the valley. Children (along with pets) are welcomed, and they will certainly enjoy watching the milking from the purpose-built viewing platform in the milking shed.
The riverside path from the farm brings you to Meifod, where there is a fine old inn and a stylish gallery and gift shop. Pontrobert and Dolanog are also nearby. Just along the road from Newbridge Farm are the visible remains Mathrafal Castle, once the home of Llewelyn, last Prince of Wales, where the National Eisteddfod is to be held in 2003.
How to find Newbridge Farm
