About Loft

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedrooms: 1
  • Bathrooms: 1

The Loft holiday apartment is one of three beautifully converted properties on our 200 acre traditional hill-farm in the very middle of Wales. The County of Powys and particularly the Elan Valley is the unspoilt heart of Wales, where rugged open hills and secret valleys create a stunning landscape untouched by mass tourism. You can walk from your door in ancient woodlands on the farm, wander through hay meadows or stroll alongside the River Wye. Explore from the door, the many cycle routes and tracks or walk in the magical high moorland meeting only sheep and red kites.

The Loft is in the top part of Nannerth Fawr farmhouse and has been converted as a comfortable and private self contained self catering holiday apartment all on one level overlooking the Wye Valley. Ideal as a base for those who love mountain biking, long distance walking and riding or exploring little know byways and paths. Secure storage a wash facilities available.

A perfect apartment for couples, but can sleep an extra if required, the Loft has a large bedroom with an antique double brass bed and a cot. The bathroom is off the small landing and has a shower over the bath. The sitting room/dining room has a smart, well equipped kitchenette at one end and roof windows giving spectacular views of the hills and farmland to the north and south.

Facilities and equipment include, central heating, dishwasher, fridge with freezing compartment, microwave, TV/DVD, radio, cot, books and games. Laundry room with free washing machines 50m approx. Parking adjacent to the property. From the Velux balcony window, the panoramic vista across the meadows and down to the river is a delight in every season. The Loft is accessed across its own roof garden and up a flight of internal stairs. The roof garden is great place to relax and has outdoor furniture and the use of a barbecue on request. The Elan Valley is designated a Dark Skies location and the blazing stars in a night sky are wonderful.

Our guests can explore 200-acres of traditional farm, private nature reserve, woods, wetlands, meadows and ponds as well as over a mile of riverbanks along the Wye, which borders the farm. For many guests this means fun, challenge and freedom, where you can run, walk and cycle. Other guests come here to observe the many interesting species of birds and animal life including kites and dippers, watervole and otter, dragonflies and amphibians. Badgers can be watched at night from our treehouse hide and Hawksdrift Falconry can be booked for small group hands-on sessions. Lambing live during late spring is popular with families. Good food and a great atmosphere in the small pubs of Rhayader, our small local market town.

What a Gem

April 29th 2019

A wonderful break in a part of Wales new to us. What a gem! Badgers, birds, beauty, lambs, the Wye, Elan Valley - need we say more? Great hospitality. A creative loft conversion. Thank you for creating a haven for wildlife and us!

A Beautiful Forest Walk

April 22nd 2019

A lovely spot to pass the Easter weekend! We even got up to see the sunrise over the valley on Easter Sunday :) We enjoyed a beautiful forest walk around the surroundings of Abbey Cwmhir and another from the Loft , down to the reservoirs and back down the oppposite valley...Phew! Caught sight of a new born calf on the moorland. Managed to walk most of the 6 hours barefoot to feel the land under my toes! Comfy bed and plenty of fresh air via the 'balcony' Thanks Andre and Alison

An Unexpectedly Snowy Stay

April 4th 2019

Had a wonderful stay here, the Loft is wonderfully cosy and the hosts have been friendly and accommodating. We were blessed with an unexpectedly snowy stay which made the scenery even more amazing and the walks more interesting. We're keen to return to see the landscape at different times of year and catch more of the wildlife around. All in all an excellent holiday in a spectacular setting. Thank you!

Liz and Pete, Harrogate.
