Description

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.

About the local area

For those who really want to escape it all then mid Wales is the place to go. Because of the vast mountain ranges in this area much of it is uninhabitable. However this does not stop it from being a beautiful place to visit.

The Cambrian Mountain range dominates and because it is often over looked due to the Snowdonian and Brecon Beacon ranges it is a secret just waiting to be discovered. Fish in one of the many reservoirs and rivers or bike up some of the challenging trails across the range.

Further to the east the towns of Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells both provide amenities for your day in the mountains. From here you can also travel to the Black Mountains in the South East or visit the neighbouring English border
