Villages & Resorts in Powys (Wales) Reviews
Newest Review: ... Lakeside. On Fridays there is karioke and on Saturdays a disco. This opens until 1 at weekends and has a great atmosphere and a small pool at the front.

I have lived in Ystradgynlais now for some ten years and as with everywhere it has changed drastically over the years. Ystradgynlais unlike its neighboring village Ystalyfera is going from strength to strength. Ystradgynlais is fifteen miles from Swansea on the road to Brecon – situated on the edge of the National Park as the Estate Agents put it. It’s very much a village where everyone knows everyone’s business. As you enter Ystradgynlais you pass the Rugby Club on your right, the scene of many a classic game although sadly at the moment the team seams to be going from bad to worse. You then cross the bridge and pass the church to ... Read the complete review
