Three former grain silos near Llanwrtyd Wells will be transformed into glamping accommodation complete with reception. The 5.2m high buildings are on a site adjacent to the Epynt Way with forest walks, national cycle ways and mountain bike trails nearby.

Cllr David Price, of Powys Council, said: “As I look around the countryside, most farms today have either silos or bins to meet the needs of bulk deliveries. As long as we have correct conditions to ensure the landscaping and the finish of those silos is managed appropriately then I think they are something of great beauty.

Cllr David Selby added: “In another location this is what I would call a brown field site; a whole load of unattractive derelict buildings are being re-purposed and brought back to life. In any other location we would celebrate that, and I celebrate it here.”
