Kathryn Evans, of estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole, said: "Anyone driving along the main A470 will see the bakery at the side of the road in Talerddig or have seen its bread, cakes and other products in shops, cafes or homes throughout the area."

The business was set up by Tom and Margaret Lewis at the current site in 1925. It was then taken over and expanded with a new bake house commissioned and opened in 1979.

It was then passed down to the Thomas', bakers from Machynlleth, who sold it in 2013 to current owner Steve Jones.

The business has three shops at Llanidloes, Machynlleth and Borth.
