The number of visitors coming to the area this Easter is rising because of Brexit and the weak pound, according to a local tourism provider.

Newtown-based Wales Cottage Holidays says the trend for staycations continues to grow too, following the triggering of Article 50 and notification of the UK’s intention to leave the European Union.

Ginnie James, who is responsible for the firm's marketing and administration, said: "Although Brexit is still a bit of an unknown quantity, we work closely with a number of agents in Europe who have reported a significant increase of enquiries from people looking to travel to Wales.

"We have also seen a definite rise in bookings from those taking advantage of the most preferable Euro rate for some time.

"With temperatures reaching 20C last weekend, families realised that there is no need to head off abroad for sunshine and the sea, when you can holiday at home and support the local economy too.
