You won’t have been anywhere quite like Llanidloes. This town in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains has quirkiness written into its DNA.


Its origins go back to the mists of the seventh century, when Saint Idloes laid the foundations of a church on land overlooking the River Severn – just nine miles from its source on towering Plynlimon mountain. The name Llanidloes means simply “Church of Saint Idloes”.
