  • “The host was very welcoming and the bungalow was spacious, very clean and well equipped.”

    We enjoyed having our meals outside while admiring the amazing views. There is plenty to do in and around Rhayader and the lovely Elan Valley.

The property

Perched on the owner's farm just outside the centre of Rhayader in the Welsh countryside is this charming all ground-floor cottage, Awel Y Bryn.

Sleeping eight guests in four bedrooms, this lovely dwelling is perfect for a mid-Wales break, being just a stone's throw from all the amenities of Rhayader as well as popular attractions like the Red Kite Feeding Station and the beautiful Elan Valley.

Step into the spacious entrance room where a dartboard is hung on the wall for a rainy day, hang up your coats and take off boots here before being welcomed into this homely setting.

Pass through the utility area which is home to a washing machine, before finding the lovely kitchen/diner where you'll be spending time in the evenings enjoying the company of loved ones along with delicious dishes prepared in the amply equipped fitted kitchen, delighting in the countryside views from the window.

Carry your conversation into the charming sitting room where a multi-fuel stove can keep you warm on a winter's evening, all finding a snug spot on the large corner sofa or armchair, settling down for a family favourite film on the TV.

In the summer months open up the sliding patio doors from the sitting room and make use of the ample garden space, with two patio areas with seating and a large enclosed lawn, you can relax here dining alfresco or play with the little ones on the grass, perfect for making precious memories on holiday.

The four lovely bedrooms comprise of a super-king-size, a king-size with an en-suite shower room, a double and a twin, with the first and final bedrooms both benefiting from zip/link features, allowing the bedroom configuration to be suited to your group needs!

Serving the bedrooms is the family bathroom where a bath with an overhead shower offers a bright and neat space to freshen up after a busy day of activities.

The first town on the River Wye, Rhayader is known to be a wonderful base for exploring the surrounding area, made up of stunning valleys, rolling countryside and mountainous terrain.

A scattering of tearooms, cafés and pubs can be found in Rhayader, offering the perfect spots to rest after a fun afternoon out, or somewhere to enjoy a well-deserved evening drink, along with local businesses including butchers and grocers where you can find the perfect locally sourced ingredients for your self-catered creations at Awel Y Bryn.

Explore the wonderful Elan and Claerwen Valleys to the west of Rhayader, made up of a series of reservoirs set within the valleys, and home to wondrous wildlife, they offer amazing settings for your rambles and walks, along with breath-taking scenery.

The Red Kite Feeding Station at Gigrin Farm is not to be missed; experience a magnificent event with the sky full of these soaring birds of prey as they come to feed, with plenty of hides to get up close to the action and even specialist photographic hides too.

Cyclists can embark on a cycle out to Llandrindod Wells, a charming town which is home to the National Cycle Museum, a perfect outing for those who have a passion for the sport, with plenty of cafés and tearooms in the town to choose from before setting off back home again.
