Quietly located, property clean and friendly host

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located for walks into Rhayader without having to use the car. Plenty to Dom in the area and some great places to eat and drink in the town.

Host was friendly and property was clean and tidy with everything needed to enjoy the stay like a home from home.

Another great week in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Family break at Gwardolau (our 2nd time) to enjoy the wonderful surroundings, walking/biking/relaxing etc. Karl and his mum are so welcoming it feels like 'home from home'. The views are beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. We would recommend the red kite feeding, and also a trip to the Hafod Estate (off the mountain road to Devil's Bridge) where there are several walking routes to choose from of varying terrain & distances which was simply stunning. This is certainly one of our favourite places.

Tidy and very comfortable with everything needed for a lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself an partner stayed with 2 kids and a dog. Lovely garden and outside area all safe and contained for the dog to run around. Karl is a really nice guy and the house was very homely with the large dining table in kitchen.

Snowy mountains looked awesome and will certainly return in the summer months

Ideal base to explore the local area, clean and comfortable home from home.

  • 5 of 5

A friendly and welcoming host, clean and comfortable cottage, warm and cosy with all we needed for our short stay. Located close to local beauty spots, not too far from local shops and town but nicely tucked away. We will be back. Thank you.

Car: necessary

The cottage is 1.5 miles from the town of Rhayader and a short drive from the Elan Valley with its dams and reservoir, there is a Red kite feeding station just outside Rhayader and plenty of footpaths and bridleways to explore the surrounding hills.
