Rhayader, Powys
Surrounded by the Elan Valley reservoirs, Rhayader is the perfect place to visit. It can be found in the county of Powys, Mid Wales. Rhayader translates from 'Rhaeadr' in Welsh, simply meaning 'waterfall', taking its name from a beautiful waterfall which was located in Rhayader until the construction of the stone bridge in 1780.
If you're interested in art and culture, then the Rebecca Reginals Gallery in the town centre has plenty of paintings, sculptures, textiles and pottery by local artists, as well as a brilliant display of jewellery. There are also plenty of places to keep children happy:
The Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine, an 18th century mine with a fascinating museum, The Gro Park children's play area, a fabulous spot along the river Wye, Gigrin Farm Kite Centre where you can watch red kites feed daily, and the award-winning Small Breeds Farm Park & Owl Centre, home to donkeys, red squirrels and all sorts of breeds of birds.
Away from Rhayader's attractions, the nearby reservoirs of the Elan Valley should definitely not be missed, for its picturesque views and the varied wildlife here, including otters, yellowhammers, kingfishers and grey wagtails. What with all these attractions, natural beauty spots and accommodation including bed and breakfasts, guesthouses and hotels, Rhayader provides the perfect getaway…
