Gwarcae is situated just 1 mile west of Rhayader a charming market town with shops, a leisure centre, restaurants and several traditional pubs. The Elan Valley is well known for its beautiful mountain scenery and picturesque reservoirs, it is a destination for walkers, mountain bikers and even offers pony trekking and fishing. Children will enjoy the opportunity to spot the famous red kites, buzzards and other unusual creatures - including the sheep that roam freely on the hillside surrounding the cottage! In order to maintain the cottage's appeal to the widest possible audience we regret that pets are not invited to stay in the cottage. More
