Winter at Powys Castle – wrap up warm – Wales

It’s January and I find it hard to believe that there is much to do outdoor. Suddenly, I remember that I know a place where there’s always something new to see…Powys Castle. Me and my family were impressed from the very first visit, more than three years ago. Since then we’ve been a couple of times and the place has kept the charm over the years.

             The fairy tale of Powys Castle

The medieval Powys Castle, originally built around 1200, was a fortress of the Welsh Princes of Powys. The daring Powys Castle is situated on a rock above some beautiful, breathtaking garden terraces.

           The  Powys Castle has a story to tell indeed. You’ll discover many famous paintings and other fine art pieces to see, many of them brought from India. Though I’m sure you will enjoy visiting Powys Castle, if you have small children it will be quite challenging. In this case you’ll rather get stick with the garden, you can make a day out just from that. Reason being, Powis Castle can only be visited by guided tour only. So, this takes a while. Beside that, some of the places to visit inside are quite dark and tight, like the cellar, which can be annoying for kids.

Today I would like to show you more about the marvelous views across the valley and the deer park that surrounds the castle. Our son loves to be in nature.  Therefore, today he was amused by spotting different animals living on these hills. It was such fun imagining how animals live in harmony with each other.

My husband showed to him how Mr. Rabbit was coming back from work, very anxious to see if his wifie put the kettle on. While Mr. Peacock was getting ready for a date with Miss Pheasant, stags were watching from the top, making sure the community is safe and sound.

 I hope you’ll love this place as much as we do, we were already surprised today by the lovely snowdrops but spring is at the corner…:)
