The area is renowned for excellent salmon, trout, grayling and coarse fishing with the rivers Wye and Usk within easy reach as well as the Irfon. Expert advice on local fishing is available from the owner and the Wye & Usk Foundation. Llanwrtyd Wells grew as a spa town, based around the Ffynnon Ddrewllyd spring, which still exists.
