Four of us stayed at Dolwen in early October to experience the road cycling. It was the perfect gateway to the Elan Valley, and the views were breathtaking. We'll definitely be back to ride the route again in the new year.
Rhayader was a nice little town. Good lamb chops from the butcher and plenty of pubs.
What was really enjoyable though was relaxing in the bungalow. We unplugged the TV at the mains, put a good stew on the stove and relaxed as much as possible when we weren't out riding the hills. With plenty of red wine.
The views from the house and most of the bedrooms are unspoilt. The kitchen is fit for a good sized group so we chose to cook the entire time we were there.
Del looked after us very well when we arrived but after we'd settled in we were left to our own devices.
Overall it was an absolutely fantastic weekend. If you're looking to get away from it all for a few days then it's the perfect setting - next time I'll try and stay a bit longer to experience more of the cycling and maybe some of the walking.More
