Mid Wales is visually stunning, so it's no surprise that people from all over the UK are attracted to move there each year. Contrary to popular belief, the property choice in towns like Barmouth and Dolgellau is not limited to traditional stone cottages. All kinds of homes to buy can be found in Wales's central region.
Property in Mid Wales - to buy or rent - can include: elegant Georgian family homes high above the banks of the River Severn, black and white period residences on the outskirts of charming Welsh towns, five-bedroom houses with several acres and extensive gardens, luxury apartments, and more.
Other Mid Wales property options range from superior detached and semi-detached residences built in the early 1900s (many of them spacious elevated residences offering stunning countryside views) to stone-built terraced dwellings, smart flats for singles and bungalows for retirees.
The "beating heart" of Mid Wales is undoubtedly Newtown, and good transport links lead there from all over Wales and England, with connections to other Mid Wales towns and villages easy to find. The journey from London's Euston Station to Newtown takes 3½ hours (by coach, 5 hours).
There is plenty for kids to enjoy in Mid Wales, whether as holidaymakers or area residents. Fantasy Farm Park is always a big hit, plus mums and dads can enjoy nights out at the theartres, cinemas and arts centres across the region. Family days out can also include trips to King Arthur's Labyrinth!
Finally, although Newtown is where most property hunters head when seeking their ideal new home in Mid Wales, it would be a mistake not to look further afield, too. Attractive properties also regularly come on to the market in Llanwrtyd Wells, Llanidloes, Cardigan, Dolgellau, and Barmouth.
