Welsh Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

    A lovely stay. Upstairs floorboards a bit creaky..other than that, it was a super place

    Fantastic location and very comfortable cottage. Appreciated the welcome of home made welsh cakes. As a bird watcher the terrace was wonderful to see numerous garden birds and best of all every afternoon there were dozens of kites soaring overhead

    Another happy holiday at Glan Wye. Cottage and welcome excellent for all the family including our four-legged contingent. Nothing is too much trouble for Mrs. Lewis and Robert. In a quiet position overlooking Rhayader roof tops yet only a short walk into town where you will find some lovely independent shops. Warm welcome in the local pub (even remembered us), hopefully with good vibs. Good walking, friendly people with a smile and very happy to help and, of course, Gigrin farm to watch the red kites. Don't hesitate, press the "booking" button - I guarantee you will not be sorry.

    Glan Wye is an excellent holiday cottage. The owner met us on arrival and was extremely helpful in explaining where everything was and also provided some delicious welsh cakes. The weather was superb so we didn't need the heating or the fuel burner. The cottage was well furnished and very comfortable. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery, and the kitchen was well equipped. There is a large patio with great views over the Elan valley and Rhayader. Red kite and buzzards regularly flew over close by. Other visitors to the garden included woodpecker, great tit and green finch. The location is a great base to visit mid Wales, whether to relax, or to take part in outdoor activities. There are great places to eat in or takeaway in Rhayader and nearby, many of which are dog friendly. As regular visitors to this part of Wales we will definitely book this property again in the future.

    The cottage was in a great location, nice and quiet. It had all the facilities you need. If there was something to be added it would be a WIFI connection.
