Traditional Farmhouse Cider
in Mid Wales

MID WALES

Mid Wales is the central region of Wales, made up of the counties of Ceredigion and Powys, and an area of Gwynedd that was once known as Meirionnydd. Dominated by the Cambrian Mountains, mid Wales is a sparsely populated, rural area, with its economy depending greatly upon the agricultural industry and small independent businesses.

 

Powys is a large area in Wales, covering the historic counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, Breconshire and a small part of Denbighshire. It is the largest authority in Wales with an area of 2000 square miles. Its north boundaries are Gwynedd, Wrexham and Denbighshire; west boundaries are Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion; east boundaries are Herefordshire and Shropshire; and south boundaries are Merthyr Tydfil, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Neath Port Talbot, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Blaenau Gwent.

 

New Radnor is a village situated in Powys, Wales. Located just off the A44 on the borders of Hereford and mid Wales, New Radnor lies 10km from Kington in Herefordshire and 20km from Builth Wells in mid Wales. The region once belonged to the county town of Radnorshire, standing on the river Somergill beneath the Radnor Forest. New Radnor is known as Maes Hyved to the Welsh, meaning "imbibing meadow"; referring to the occasional seepage of the Somergill river into nearby soil.​​
