Hello and WELCOME to Cuckoo Clock Lodge our fantastic and quirky self catering holiday cottage situated in the beautiful market town of Rhayader, Powys, in the heart of Mid-Wales, UK

The opening comments above are just a few examples of what our previous guests have said after their stay at Cuckoo Clock Lodge. Come on, don't just take their word for it, come and try it for yourselves!

In a nutshell, the house is an unusual open plan property constructed from Western Red Cedar with ample off street parking. It has recently been modernised and equipped to a very high standard. It has fantastic panoramic views across the upper Wye Valley and located in a very quiet part of town. You have a maximum 15 minute walk to all the towns fine amenities including shops, restaurants, takeaways, pubs (10, yes 10!), Post Office, chemist and only a 3 minute walk to our great little leisure centre with pool.

On the flip side you will find yourself surrounded by stunning countryside in less than a 5 minute drive!

So, I hear you ask, it sounds great....... but what exciting stuff can we get up to during our stay?

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.
