About this location

The Powys region

Rhayader

Rhayader, the first town on the River Wye, is said to be the oldest in mid Wales. Sitting in the shadow of the Cambrian Mountains at the upper end of the Elan Valley, Rhayader has a long history as a market town. Because of its location at a natural crossroads between east, west, north and south, Rhayader has welcomed travellers for centuries. In days gone by it was a very important staging post, especially for the London to Aberystwyth line. The journey from Rhayader to Aberystwyth today (along the B4574) is described by the AA as being one of the top 10 most scenic in the world.

Unsurprisingly this journeyman's town was plagued with an excess of tollgates in the 19th century, sparking the famous Rebecca Riots in which farmers would dress in drag and attack the toll booths. Rhayader today is a far more placid place, with visitors attracted by the beautiful scenery that is criss-crossed with an abundance of trails and bridleways. It is also the home to a growing population of Red Kites that can be seen at Gigrin Farm, as well as the picturesque Elan Valley Reservoirs.

The reservoirs were built to provide water for the swollen population of industrialised Birmingham which was suffering from interminable epidemics of water borne diseases. The work was begun in 1894 and opened by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1904, the entire project cost £6 million which is around £240 million in today's money.

The worker's village, designed by Herbert Tudor Buckland is the only purpose built Arts and Crafts model Village in Wales and the Nant-y-Gro Reservoir was the test site for the Dambusters bombing experiments in 1942.

Hello Mrs G & family,

Many thanks for taking the time to write your nice review about your stay with us at Cuckoo Clock Lodge. We are sorry if your children having TV's in their bedrooms has caused "pester power" since returning home. We do plan to install a TV in the upstairs bedroom shortly too to stop parents feeling left out!

Thanks again for choosing to stay with us.

Best Regards

Jim,Sue and Rachael.

Hello again D & V,

Many thanks for taking the time to write the nice review for us. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us at Cuckoo Clock Lodge and hope that you will visit us again soon.

I never really thought about it before I suppose because I am used to the house but yes it is a very spacious property. Even the bedrooms have a generous floor area as well as the open plan living area across the front of the house.
