Vulcan Lodge - the Woodman holiday cottage is situated in arguably the most beautiful part of the Upper Wye Valley with the Cambrian mountains, Elan Valley lakes and Wye Valley Walk close by. Whether your enthusiasm is for walking, cycling, fishing, birdwatching, canoeing - or you just want a peaceful, relaxing holiday, this is the place for you.
The Woodman is a lovely holiday cottage occupying the upper floors of the original 3 stone cottages. It can be booked together with other cottages for larger groups - up to 23 guests can be accommodated.
From the front porch stairs lead up to the accommodation. The oak beams in all of the rooms give the cottage lots of character and with a south/westerly aspect it benefits from sun most of the day.
There is a purpose built secure cycle storage unit with cycle stands which will take a large number of bikes. There is a jetwash to hose down dirty equipment and we now offer cycle and helmet hire. Bikes and helmets can be hired. There is also a large laundry and drying room with facilities for boot cleaning and storage.

The Powys region
Vulcan Lodge - the Woodman sits in the Upper Wye Valley which is designated an area of special interest and beauty It is only 3.5 miles from the market town of Rhayader, the gateway to the Elan Valley. With its network of reservoirs and dams the Elan Valley is considered to be the Lake District of Wales. The backdrop to the area is the Cambrian Mountain range which extends from Rhayader to the coast of Ceredigion.
Rhayader is a vibrant town with much to offer the visitor. With its Leisure Centre, Elan Valley Visitor Centre, Museum, Community Arts Centre (CARAD), Willow Globe open air Shakespeare theatre and the Red Kite Centre it is rich in culture and interests. Each year there are a number of agricultural shows in the surrounding villages and Rhayader itself has a Grand Carnival Week with events occuring on a nightly basis over a 10 day period. There is a programme of free events at the Elan Valley Visitor Centre throughout the summer season and the Leisure Centre offers school holiday activities for children. There is also a children's playbarn 3 mils from the cottage.
With a population of just over 2,000 Rhayader has a range of shops including a Spar store and chemist. It also has 12 pubs!
For walkers the Wye Valley is just a 10 minute walk from the cottage. The Red Kite Centre at Gigrin Farm where the wondrous raptors can be seen at close quarters at feeding time, is 3 miles away. For cyclists there are many cycle paths and trails close by and in Rhayader there is a mountain bike centre which offers guided tours a well as bike hire. For canoe enthusiasts there is a canoe access point on the river a short walk away and there are many opportunities for fishing both on the rivers Wye and Marteg and at Llyn Gwyn pool owned by Rhayader Angling Association.

"A fabulous place to stay"
Very impressed with this property (Woodman). One of the best equipped and presented self catering places we have stayed at. Well thought out conversion and attention to every detail has been made. We were warmly welcomed and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Definitely recommended in a beautiful part of mid Wales, close to Elan Valley and within easy access of Aberystwyth. Great area for cycling, walking and horse riding.
Thank you so much for posting such very positive comments about the Woodman Cottage; it is much appreciated. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and perhaps we will see you again some time in the future. With best wishes, Elaine Owner
