    “Great short stay, Awel y Bryn was spottles and spacious, with a good sized kitchen diner for a sociable breakfast, and a large living room with fantastic views over the hills.”

    We'll equipped throughout, and communication with the owners was easy when necessary. The only extra I would suggest is some toiletries for the showers.

The property

Rhayader 1.7 miles.

Awel y Bryn is a charming, four-bedroom bungalow resting on the owner's farm on the outskirts of Rhayader, Powys.

Enjoying stunning countryside views, Awel y Bryn can accommodate up to eight guests, making it ideal for large family breaks to Mid Wales, just a short journey from the popular attractions of the Red Kite Feeding Station and the beautiful Elan Valley.

Benefit from plenty of off-road parking, taking in the beauty that surrounds your new abode before stepping indoors and storing your muddy boots and walking gear in the handy utility.

The kitchen/diner offers a well-equipped space to prepare meals and gather as an eight, complete with all necessary appliances for a self-catered stay, where you can rustle up breakfast, lunch, and dinner with countryside views in the backdrop.

Continue to host in the stylish sitting room, with plenty of plush seating to sink into and a rustling woodburning stove to light on cooler evenings, while, through the summer months, relish in an alfresco affair by relaxing in the garden, overlooking the surrounding mountain range.

Four inviting bedrooms are on offer, including a super-king-size (zip/link) with en-suite, a king-size, a double, and a twin, the latter enjoying views over the rolling countryside, while a sleek bathroom provides the perfect space to prepare for your coming days.

Rhayader, the first town on the River Wye, is known to be a wonderful base for exploring the surrounding area, which is 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 ride out to Llandrindod Wells, a charming town that is home to the National Cycle Museum.

This is 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.

Near here is the wonderful Fronserth Farm Alpacas, a beautiful farm offering you the chance to go trekking through the scenic countryside with a new furry friend, perfect for all ages!

Just a car journey from the coast at Aberystwyth and not too far from the famous Offa's Dyke path too, Awel y Bryn makes a wonderful spot to enjoy a memorable holiday in Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
