The Neuadd Arms Hotel

The smallest town in Britain, Llanwrtyd Wells

Llanwrtyd Wells is the smallest town in Britain (population 850) and is in an area of mid-Wales where the pace of life has changed little since the drovers used to drive their flocks of sheep across the mountains.

It is surrounded by the magnificent scenery of the southern Cambrian Mountains, often called the 'Welsh Lake District' because of its similarity to the English Lakes, and it makes an excellent centre for many outdoor pursuits such as walking, mountain biking, pony trekking, fishing and bird watching. Its situation in the centre of Wales also makes it an ideal touring centre for exploring Mid Wales, The Brecon Beacons and the Cardigan Bay Coastline.

Llanwrtyd Wells is situated on the main A483 road halfway between Builth Wells and Llandovery. The hotel is situated in the very centre of town, facing the town square and the bridge over the River Irfon.

We are also on the Heart of Wales Railway line which runs from Shrewsbury to Swansea, with regular services throughout the year.
