Location description from owner

The Wales region

A place steeped in history and magnificent in its natural beauty with so many things to do. The history of Rhayader is famous for hoards of gold Jewellery, the Rebecca Rioters and infamous Salmon Poachers, the Old Market Hall and present day livestock markets, the Tannery, the Town Clock, the River Wye walks and the Bwgy stream.

Rhayader

Nearby is the Elan Valley Reservoir Visitor Centre - a must for walkers and sightseers and cyclists will enjoy the scenic cycle track which runs from Rhayader to the dams - bikes can be hired in Rhayader. The Red Kite Visitor Centre close by is also a must. These beautiful birds of prey are fed daily here - a truly memorable display. Llandrindod Wells is a short drive – a charming spa town which has an open air market, small individual shops, hosts the world famous Victorian Festival at the end of August, the National Cycle Museum, with weird and wonderful bicycles. Builth Wells is also nearby – the annual Royal Welsh Show is held here, and there is an arts centre. The mid Wales Shakespeare centre (Living Willow theatre) is a short distance. There is excellent walking close by and to the west and north the Cambrian Mountains are still one of Wales' most special places - a peaceful, largely unspoiled landscape. For days out, Hay-on-Wye with its world famous book fair is just under an hour away, the Brecon Beacons National Park for well trodden walking routes, or Poppit Sands, Aberaeron South beaches.

“Although deep in the countryside,the spacious accommodation was more than we expected as was the reception we received.”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2015

We arrived 2 hours late, but were greeted by our hosts in a splendid manner. The accommodation surpassed my expectation as we are not used to spacious areas to relax, cook and sleep in. The conservatory was restful after our long walks and we enjoyed the fact that our hosts encouraged the wildlife to use the garden so we could enjoy it. The central location meant we were able to walk from Dolwen on numerous occasions to find places to eat, and, at other times, found it easy to reach seaside areas (Aberystwyth) for a bathe. There was even a red kite feeding station close by. The kitchen allowed us to experiment with some Welsh cooking, which was fun for the family. Our hosts were always on hand to help out so we had a most relaxing holiday and thay could not have ben more friendly.

Ian, thank you very much for your review on Dolwen. It was a pleasure to read such a glowing review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon. Best wishes.

“perfect, peaceful and welcoming.”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2013

My elderly mum and I came for a quiet holiday in the countryside and was delighted to find a warm welcome from Del with the kettle on! Dolwen is perfect for people with mobility issues(wheelchair friendly) but also for large families where Granny comes too and enclosed for children(mind the wildlife pond though). It is perfectly situated for seeing Red Kites and Elan dams.long walks and fresh air! Rhyader is lovely with a river walk and plenty of good eating places.We are back in 2013 and can`t wait! We recommend Dolwen to all,the owner and Del next door are so helpful.Yes you need a car to get to eat out etc. but the tranquility and beauty are second to none and we love it!
