Proprietors must be the friendliest hosts we have ever met. This homely and traditional cottage is comfortable and relaxing. Location is very peaceful despite being in central to all amenities of the small town, with the bonus of having a quiet garden in which to sit. Rhayader itself is central to so many places of interest across Wales and the borders. Look forward to returning soon.

Mr R,

Just what we needed. A short break in the lovely town of Rhayader. Such a peaceful setting it was hard to tell we were in the town centre. For a two-person cottage it was comfortably spacious and full of character. Period mid-century furnishings, which we enjoy. Exceptionally friendly and helpful hosts, from whom we learned much local history. Seeing red kites above the garden was a bonus, We'll definitely return.

mr R,
