 If you are coming to take part in a course or visiting Presteigne there are many places to stay and an opportunity to take in the wonderful countryside.

You can choose from a number of Bed & Breakfast places , or for a longer stay rent a self catering house or cottage . To make the most of your stay  , there are many beautiful walks and a number of things to do and places to visit . Presteigne is also within easy reach of Ludlow and Hay on Wye and is surrounded by many smaller towns and villages each with their own individual charm .

Presteigne although a small town by comparison to towns on the english side of the border was once the county town of Radnorshire and has the air of a town where time has stood still , many of the original medieval features still peep out from behind the Georgian facades and many of the surrounding houses still retain many beautiful and interesting features , and for those interested in vernacular architecture a leisurely walk around Presteigne is an absolute joy .
