Montgomery - the perfect escape in mid wales
The Checkers sits on the town square in the pretty town of Montgomery.
The town has a quiet vibrancy as locals and visitors enjoy the Georgian architecture, beautiful countryside, thriving and eclectic local businesses and the areas wonderful produce.
Within the town you have a superb and diverse collection of small retailers, while The Old Bell museum offers visitors a true insight into the Montgomery of old, and a stop off at Montys Brewery visitors center offers a chance to taste some of the new industry that taking place in the town.
Montgomery Castle has the most impressive view over the town and is well worth the short steep walk from the town square, while the more sedate walking along the nearby Montgomery canal is a relaxing way to see the borderland.
One of the seven wonders of Wales, Pistyll Rhaeadr, a waterfall above Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant, is definitely worth a visit. As is Lake Vyrnwy on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park amidst the remote and beautiful Berwyn Mountains.
