Description

This pet friendly family property offers an ideal base to explore Powys, the Wye Valley, Elan Valley and magnificent scenery.


Nestled among lush countryside in an idyllic location, Glan Wye is a homely barn conversion offering an ideal base to explore the delights on offer in the surrounding area. Rhayader lies in the very heart of Wales, situated 700ft above sea level in the beautiful Upper Wye Valley, and is sheltered by the Cambrian Mountains and cupped by hills rising to over 1500ft. Rhyader is also the first town of the River Wye, and the river is renowned as being the canoeing capital of Europe. Water has always played an important role in the town, and today it is known for the spectacular beauty of the flooded Elan Valley, where Victorian engineers created a series of magnificent dams and reservoirs as a water supply for the city of Birmingham, some 70 miles away. It’s truly a walker’s haven with The Wye Valley Trail running alongside the property and splendid cycling opportunities are available. The area is home to the majestic red kite, and with a bird feeding station within walking distance, it can be a popular sight. Guests are welcome to roam the owner’s 270-acre farm. Excellent fishing, riding and golfing can all be found locally. Today, the population of the local villages and countryside surrounding Rhayader is only a fraction of what it used to be a couple of hundred years ago, but the village communities are still very strong, with a variety of rural shows and events throughout the year. The larger spa town of Llandrindodd Wells is within an easy drive. Shops ½ mile.

    This is my fourth visit to Glan Wye and I know it will not be our last. We all feel Glan Wye is clean and comfortable with plenty of room for us to spread out - just like home from home (but bigger); all the family, four adults and our beloved setter, are happy to arrive and soon feeling very relaxed. Mrs. Lewis is a gem and always happy to help and, of course, her local knowledge is invaluable; Robert is the perfect "Mr. Fixer". The local hostelry at the bottom of the hill has the most fantastic food; the town people are very friendly and the Elan Valley has plenty of pathways to walk and explore. Can't wait for our next visit to Glan Wye.

    A quiet, very nice, cosy and homely cottage with all the modern appliances in an excellent location, the views from the garden terrace were beautiful; overlooking the village and nearby hills. There is only a short walk to get into the nearby village which had a selection of places to eat, drink and shop for groceries; the local butcher was excellent. The surrounding countryside has plenty of walks and wildlife all within easy reach of the cottage. The owner was very friendly, helpful and keen to make sure our stay was an enjoyable one; she also was very interested in any feedback for improvements that could be made to the cottage.

    we have stayed at Glan Wye many times and it never fails to please. It is a typical Welsh farmhouse with large rooms and a big log burner in the lounge, and plenty of fuel. The walks from the door are many and varied. A short ride away, or a good walk are the Elan Valley Reserviors which can keep you entertained all day, with wild life and fishing etc. With many places to eat nearby the Triangle Inn is within walking distance, it is dog friendly, and the food is excellent. All in all a very pleasant holiday destination for all country lovers.
