Built in 1902, this traditional Victorian style building originally accommodated officials tasked with engineering the six magnificent Elan Valley Dams nestled in the nearby hills. The glorious reservoirs brought further prosperity to Rhayader and with it, Humphrey’s Drapers occupied the prime ground floor shop. The Old Drapers has been meticulously converted to capture the spirit of a bustling mid Wales market town. Standing in the heart of Rhayader, the accessible ground floor apartment offers convenience and comfort as standard as well as wheelchair accessible doorways, level access to the pavement, the flexibility of zip and link bed options and a disability adapted wet room.
The Old Drapers gives you the perfect base to explore Rhayader and the Elan Valley. The rolling Cambrian Mountains on the doorstep are yours to enjoy in all seasons. Exploring Rhayader is simple, all amenities are within walking distance as are lots of independent shops, a leisure centre, museum and a choice of traditional places to eat and drink. Equally as simple is your access to the spectacular mid Wales countryside. Just two minutes from The Old Drapers is the Elan Valley Trail, an old railway which has been adapted for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Two pristine riverside parks either side of the apartment are also accessible. Whether you’re here for walking, cycling, mountain biking, pony trekking, astronomy, bird watching, fishing or looking to take the pace of life down a notch, let The Old Drapers be your base to make Mid Wales memories. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
The Old Drapers can be booked together with The Bakehouse (CC624027) and The Cwtch (CC624028) to accommodate up to 17 guests.
