The local area guide to living in Caersws

Caersws sits on the River Severn, around 5 miles west of Newtown in the county of Powys. Halfway between Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury, the wider area is known for its beautiful, picturesque mountains and friendly population. In fact, Powys has been described as the UK's happiest place to live.

Caersws itself has a population of just under 1,600, which is typical for a settlement in Powys - the community is very much split into small villages and towns.

Dubiously translated into modern Welsh as 'Fort Kiss', Caersws was more likely named by the Romans as a dedication to Zeus or a queen named Swswen. It was home to two roman forts before they left, and now features an array of historic buildings that lend the village its character and charm.

For example, Llanwnnog Church, within the main part of the village, is a breathtaking single-chambered structure estimated to date from the 13th century. Human habitation has existed in the area since at least the bronze age, with several standing stones and monuments in the countryside dating back to 10,000BC.

While Caersws itself is small, its location is fantastic. The wider area is known for its beautiful walks, natural wonders including caves and waterfalls, castles, forests, and landscapes. What's more, the local residents are full of life, friendliness and activity - so don't let the village’s sleepy visage fool you!

Residents in Caersws are generally in great health and very happy. The majority of residents work in manual and skilled trades occupations.

The vast majority of Caersws dwellers were born in the UK, and the average age is 44 - higher than the rest of Wales. More than 50% of the population are over 45, while only 11% are between 18 and 30 years old.

The village community is a thriving one, representing a broad cross section of people from all walks of life. There is a village hall which sees regular use by many different clubs and societies, including an angling association, a football club, and gardening club. It's a lively, welcoming community - typical of rural Wales. It has a long-standing sporting heritage, including several well-known mountain biking trails nearby.

Famously hailing from Caersws was John Ceiriog Hughes - a celebrated and award-winning romantic poet known for his devotion to simplicity and emotional sincerity.

Just down the road in Newtown, only a 15-minute drive away, are some very high-achieving schools to choose from. For that reason, Caersws is an attractive place for families.

It lies on the Cambrian Line between Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury, and offers excellent links around the county and wider Wales. There is a two-hourly service every day, including Sundays.

For drivers, Caersws is conveniently located beside the A470. Newtown is a short drive away, and from there both Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury are less than an hour away.
