Rhayader has for centuries offered a welcome for travellers, from the Romans who had a stopover camp in the Elan Valley to Monks journeying between the Abbeys of Strata Florida and Abbeycwmhir. These ancient monuments remain but we have continued to perfect our welcome, one of many reasons why visitors return to Rhayader throughout the year. Stay in one of our friendly hotels, pubs, B&Bs, camping sites or self-catering cottages and make it your base for a brilliant holiday.
