Built where the rivers Wye and Irfon join, Builth Wells enjoys a stunning location in the Wye Valley that straddles the border between England and Wales. It’s a vibrant market town that’s set in some stunning countryside, making it the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. In fact, the only thing to make it more relaxing would be to book yourself into a spa hotel for the duration of your stay.
Visiting the small town of Builth Wells is like travelling back in time. The independent shops selling local produce, the numerous Grade II listed buildings, featuring typical regional stonework, and the relaxed atmosphere all give the town a unique feel. This character and laidback way of approaching the world has developed over hundreds of years of agricultural history, where learning to live in tandem with the natural world has meant a slower pace of life.
Stroll through the town and pop into a pub for a pint of the local ale or a meal made using only local ingredients. Go pony trekking or walking through the Wye Valley to de-stress or visit the red kite centre, set in over 200 acres of woodland, to learn about the birdlife that calls this place home.
Of course, the best way to relax would be to enjoy a spa treatment or two in your Builth Wells spa hotel. Treat yourself to a facial or indulge in a wrap or hot stone massage and feel your troubles float away. A spa hotel in Builth Wells is a top combination of destination and relaxation.
After your treatment, enjoy a sauna or steam room to relax the muscles further before returning to your well-appointed room to get ready for dinner or simply enjoy the best night’s sleep you’ve had in a long while.
Walk into the town and cross the 200-year-old stone bridge, pop in to a local craft shop to buy a souvenir or find a bargain in the boutiques here. Sample local produce in the delicatessen or find out what the friendly local butchers have in today.
Builth Wells is a real community, demonstrating what life was like in mid-Wales for countless generations. It’s a real trip back to a simpler time without the stresses and strains of the modern world. And it’s very relaxing just to be in and around the town on your holiday.
With available spa accommodation, you can really make the most of your Builth Wells break. However, book early as it can get busy here because of the outstanding natural beauty, especially during the Royal Welsh Show which takes place here every year. Indulge in some treatments, walk away your worries and enjoy the unique charm and character of Builth Wells. This is a first rate spa hotel destination for unwinding on your holiday.
