    Glan Wye is a perfect example of a two-storey converted barn, in Cwmdauddwr, Rhayader, situated on the edge of the owner’s Glan Elan Farm. It is within walking distance from the town and boasts an unobstructed secluded private view of Rhayader, in an idyllic location overlooking the gateway to the Elan and Claerwen Valley Reservoirs, known to tourists as the Welsh Lakes. Visitors are welcome to use the rights of way on the farm if they wish to do so, and for those seeking peace and tranquillity together with enjoying the countryside, can while away many hours with a pair of binoculars soaking up the stunning scenery, during April to June you may well hear the call of the cuckoo. To assist with preparing and packing for your stay, why not do your shopping online beforehand which can be delivered to suit your arrival time anytime from 3.00pm?

    The location of Glan Wye offers with ease a wealth of things to see and do whilst on holiday - from beaches, cinemas, indoor/outdoor activities, a cycle track, renowned nature reserves, historic houses and gardens, interesting coastal and inland towns and villages, shopping - whatever your interest, you won’t be short of ways to fill your days.

    Rhayader, situated 700ft above sea level in the Upper Wye Valley, sheltered by the Cambrian Mountains in the very heart of Wales, is the first town on the River Wye, renowned as the canoeing capital of Europe. It has a leisure centre with pool, livestock market, shops and a choice of pubs and restaurants that should suit anyone’s taste! Rhayader is also home to the Welsh Kite Feeding Centre and the Rhayader ‘Pump Track Wales’, which is thought to be the largest split track in the UK to date. The track, designed by Arran Cartwright, has been constructed by the company responsible for the London 2012 Olympic BMX racetrack.

    From the Visitors’ Centre in the Elan Valley there is an annual programme of events organised for those wishing to take part. The Elan Valley is known for its spectacular beauty and the magnificent reservoirs created by the Victorian engineers, some 100 years ago, which now supply water to the city of Birmingham. This location is truly a walkers and cyclists haven, and from the doorstep of the property this area can be explored, starting with the cycle track constructed in 2000 from the disused railway line that serviced the construction of the dams (maps are available from the Visitors’ Centre marking the varying length and terrain).

    Fishing, horse riding and golfing can all be found locally. Town and village life are still vibrant with carnivals, shows, festivals and Christmas festivities all playing an important part in the yearly calendar. The property is within an easy drive of the Royal Welsh Showground, which together with hosting the Society’s three events, also hires out the showground accommodating a variety of events throughout the year. In Cilmery, you can see the Memorial to Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, Prince of Wales. Other attractions include Devils Bridge, first built by monks in the 11th century and from where you can take the Vale of Rheidol steam train that meanders through the valley to the seaside town of Aberystwyth. Here you can visit the National Library of Wales and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre which is considered one of the best in Wales outside Cardiff. Shops ½ mile and pub 1 mile.

    Glam Wye was just what we wanted, spacious but still cosy, private and secluded but still close enough to the town, well equipped to enable us to cook most evenings. The garden was perfect for our little grandson who really enjoyed the birds. The view from the cottage was beautiful even in the rain. We have really enjoyed our week despite the rain.

    Absolutely appalling! Apart from looking like some grandmother’s kitsch nightmare there were some major disappointments with this holiday and the owner of the property. First, when we were on way to the property we texted the owner to let him know we would be late. When we were near the property we couldn’t locate the place because there wasn’t any sign, which was clearly mentioned in the directions we were given. When we eventually found the place the owner told us that the sign had fallen down. Really?! But didn’t he think, care or have the decency to let us know? Okay. Let that one go. Give him the benefit of doubt. Mistake! Decide to get the wood-burner thingy on the go. Matches? Lighter? Nope. Looked everywhere. None nowhere. We have never stayed anywhere with an open fire or wood-burner that you had to bring your own matches. Skimping. A few days later, early evening finally getting a fire going and there’s a knock at the door. Who’s it going to be? You book these places for bit of peace and quiet, seclusion, etc. It’s some handyman came out of nowhere to fix a patio door and the owner obviously did not have the decency to reschedule or even tell us in advance. The next evening we were having a walk and we actually bumped into the the owner and mentioned to him what happened the evening before. His first response was to explain why the handyman was there rather than simply say “sorry”. I had to drag an apology out of him. While he was there we mentioned that there was a problem with the radiators. He came round within an hour. Well done! He’s gone upstairs to check the thermostat, etc while we were in the living room. The next thing I knew he was his SHOUTING down the stairs accusingly “you’ve turned the boiler off!” News to us. We did not touch the switch and the last person who was there before us was the owner. When he actually finished fixing his problem he came into the living room and asked us if we want the kitchen lights turned off as if to say “you’re costing me money” whereas we’ve been waiting around for him to fix things, which should have already been in place before we arrived, and to have our dinner at the kitchen table. Disgraceful. You would think that’s it but oh, no. Our last night in Wales (which is beautiful!) Six o’clock in the evening and I think I’ll have nice soak in the bath. Long day ahead travelling back home tomorrow. Then what do I hear but the soothing sounds of power tools! Okay, it might be the neighbours. No, it’s not. It’s another one of his handyman messing about in the back garden. We were expected to leave by 10 a.m. the next day. Couldn’t he wait after we told him about the other handyman? Didn’t he realise that he’s already disturbed us enough and he has to have another parting shot before we leave? Absolutely disgusting! Inexcusable.

    Stayed here for a week in August, 4 adults plus one dog. Very friendly owners and neighbours. Great location. 5 min walk to town, pub, amenities. House is ideal for a family holiday, thoroughly recommend.

    Disappointing, photographs on the web site do not match what you see for real. Garden needed mowing and tidying, garden furniture could not be used mouldy and old the bench was rotten. Inside the furnishings were tired and old practically Victorian. The carpet in the kitchen/ dining area was threadbare and held together with Gaffa tape. Downstairs shower had mould and the drain was blocked I had to free it from hair etc. We had a 6 month old grandchild with us and felt that the level of cleanliness was not adequate.

    Lovely cottage in the middle of the countryside. Clean and welcoming. Everything you need to enjoy a week away - nothing has been missed. I think the only thing that would be needed would be a large oven roasting dish. Fire very warm and homely. Bedrooms are a good size and it was great to have a sink unit in each bedroom. The owner couldn't be any more helpful or friendly and was on call if you need anything. She has lots of information about the local area so its well worth a visit. The local pub, The Triangle, serves amazing food and the lamb is locally produced by the owner's family. I'd definitely recommend a visit there - we managed 3! The cottage sits overlooking the village of Rhayader and as such has incredible views. The cottage is close to a Red Kite feeding centre and so will often be seen flying overhead. It is in the Elan Valley which is a dedicated dark sky area so the views of the stars are amazing.
