Accessible Guide


Powys County Council has worked with the charity Disabled Holiday Information to publish the Accessible Powys guides. The aim of the guides is to make Powys more accessible for people who need easier access, whether they are wheelchair users, parents with small children and people with limited walking ability. 


Accommodation Guide 

The guide gives an insight into the wide variety of accessible places to stay in Powys. By combining it with the useful info on the Disabled Holiday Information website, we hope it will help people who need an accessible place to stay to have a better holiday. 

Every place included has been visited and assessed for accessibility by one of the DHI research teams. Each team is made up of people with easier access needs, including a wheelchair user. All places to stay featured will have at least one wheelchair accessible entrance, one accessible bedroom and a wet-room/level access shower. Please note that whilst we have tried to make sure that these places to stay will meet most people’s access needs, we strongly advise you to call your chosen place to stay in advance to discuss your exact needs.

Trails Guide 

This guide contains details of various sites and trails that are suitable for people needing easier access. This brochure is not designed to be a guide to each area, but to give visitors an insight into the wide selection of accessible countryside sites on offer in this county. Please note that the Disabled Holiday Information web pages for Powys have more detailed information, which is updated regularly.

Accessible Activities 

The Accessible Activities Guide launched in March 2014. The guide highlights activities across the county that are suitable for people with easier access needs, including people with long-term, lifestyle inhibiting medical conditions or disabilities, older people and families with children. Powys is a place where you can get out and about and enjoy a huge range of activities, no matter what your personal circumstances.
