Elan Valley, Nr Rhayader, Powys
Our delightful self catering chalet is situated amidst the spectacular scenery of the Elan Valley and offers a truly peaceful country holiday. The area is ideal for those who love walking with a footpath right outside the door, which leads through ancient oak woodlands on to the heather clad hill.
The Sitting RoomHas big picture windows and a door leading into the garden. The walls are attractively wood panelled and the furniture is comfortable. There is a small television, a phone with an honesty box and a bureau with lots of maps, walks and literature about local attractions. We have put in a wood-burning stove, which is just to add a cosy atmosphere, as the chalet is really warm with night storage and convector heaters providing adequate heat throughout. Logs are provided.
The Kitchen/DinerThe kitchen has a fridge, cooker and microwave; lots of cutlery, attractive crockery, and is generally well equipped. The main attraction is the bird table outside the kitchen window where you will be entertained richly by a wide variety of bird. Suddenly washing up will become a real pleasure!
The BathroomThe Bathroom has a wash basin, WC and bath with an over bath electric shower.
The BedroomsThere are two bedrooms. One with a double bed and one with an adult size bunk bed. Duvet and pillows are provided but you have to bring your own sheets and towels.
More InformationPets are very welcome at Tyn-y-Castell and at no extra charge. We would ask you to respect the usual courtesies of not allowing them on the furniture and cleaning up the garden before you leave. There is a good fence round the garden and lots of lovely walks for them to enjoy but they must be kept under control to protect wildlife and farming.
It is a paradise for bird watchers being in the heart of Red Kite country or for the energetic that want to take advantage of the numerous cycle tracks developed in recent years. You can of course just sit and unwind and enjoy the scenery from the large picture windows and the conservatory (with the Red Kite soaring above!) or drive around the lakes and explore the rest of this beautiful area of Mid Wales.
Tyn-y-Castell is about five miles from the friendly little market town of Rhayader. It lies just a short distance from a single-track road and is approached via a track which continues on up onto the hills. It is about two miles to the Elan Valley Visitors Centre and the beginning of the road round the lakes. There are numerous footpaths and way marked walks and cycle tracks all passing through some of the most beautiful countryside in the British Iles. Most importantly it is immensely peaceful and totally uncrowded and unspoilt.
