Astonishingly Beautiful Mid Wales
Our beautiful Mid Wales location includes some of the most spectacular and varied countryside in Wales and the UK. It is an excellent area for laid back outdoor holidays where relaxation is a priority. Our guests return many times to enjoy the varied walking, birdwatching and outdoor activities here as well as to experience life on an old fashioned working farm, with animals free to roam outdoors and traditional seasonal work such as haymaking and lambing.
Nannerth Fawr Farm lies at about 900 feet in the upper Wye Valley, just to the north west of the market town of Rhayader or Rhaeadr Gwy, in the old county of Radnorshire. This unspoilt area is little touched by tourism and you will find an uncrowded environment where traditional family farms shape the landscape. We are right in the heart of Wales in ‘kite country’, surrounded by the hills, mountains and moors of Plynlimon (Pumlumon) and the Cambrian mountains. Behind the farm rise the high hills of the Elan Valley moorland, while to the south and east the winding river Wye borders almost 2 miles of our valley pastures and meadows.
This is an excellent base for exploring central Wales and the border ‘March’ country. We are an hour from the sea and the university town of Aberystwyth and an hour or so from the Cathedral city of Hereford, Hay on Wye town of books and the beautiful March area. Rugged Snowdonia lies to the north and the Brecon Beacons to the south. Driving is pleasant on uncrowded roads, but there is plenty to do on the farm and nearby.
