The local area guide to living in Llanidloes

The town of Llanidloes has existed for over a millennium, with the town first being granted a charter in 1280. Located in the gorgeous region of Powys in mid Wales, it’s the first town on the River Severn, and one well situated for those who enjoy the countryside.

With numerous cycling paths and various picturesque hiking trails, including the nearby Glyndwr Way that forms part of the 135-mile circuit of mid Wales and parts of England, the spot is perfect for those who enjoy spending time in the outdoors.

Within that vein, the area is extremely popular with birdwatchers. Even the roads themselves are pretty, with the mountain road that connects with the nearby town of Machynlleth extremely scenic, making a day’s commute (if it should so happen to go along this road) a more than pleasant experience.

Information about the local residents

The population of the town is just under 3,000 and the majority of the residents find work in the retail sector. The town is quite well known for its unique and vibrant culture, having been made famous for a ‘counterculture’ movement in years gone by. Today, it still remains on the quirky side, though more in the realm of organic shopping and vegetarian dining that you wouldn’t typically expect from a relatively small Welsh town.

Uniquely, the town also has over 15 different licensed establishments and 9 pubs in all. Whilst this gives it a higher rate of pubs per mile than even Glasgow, this doesn’t speak to an integrated drinking culture, but instead to the vibrant and social community that exists within the Llanidloes area.

Nearby schools

Two schools can be found in Llanidloes, one serving primary level students and the other being a High School, and both being bi-lingual (Welsh and English). The primary school is well-regarded and many of the students who attend it then go onto attend the High School.

The Llanidloes High School is an extremely well-regarded school, which is rated as ‘Yellow’ by the Welsh education authorities. This means that the school is an ‘Effective’ school, the equivalent of ‘Good’ under Ofsted rankings. The school had the unique distinction of having 7% of its A -Level students going onto attend Oxbridge.

In terms of Higher Education, the closest university to the town is the University of Aberystwyth, though many students instead choose to go to university in Cardiff.

Getting around

While there are 30 or so hiking and walking paths around the town, the easiest way to get about is via car. Both the A470 and B4518 motorways pass near the town, connecting to the larger Welsh and English motorway system.

While the town once had a train station, which closed in 1962 and is now occupied by small businesses, the nearest is found six miles away in Caersws. Bus routes run from the town to various other areas, such as the largest town in the region, Newtown.

The closest airport isn’t actually that close, with Hawarden Airport being found just under sixty miles away. However, both Birmingham and Cardiff can be reached in just two hours, reachable either via the motorway, by coach or connections through the train system.

Local shops

The town, with its 9 pubs, is evidently one that favours independent industry. In fact, many of the residents work in the local shops, which include 2 butchers, health food stores, clothing boutiques and other shops.

Uniquely, the towns hosts not only an organic shop, run by local residents, but also a vegetarian whole-food café. There are several other eateries in the town, with a golf course also found on the outskirts. Nearby Newtown has more in the ways of High Street shopping, with a mall that hosts brands such as Burton and Dorothy Perkins.
