Bed & Breakfast at Rhedyn Guesthouse

Welcome - Croeso i ti!


Last year was a Bonanza time for us, more visitors than ever and an upgrade from the AA of our award from 4 star to Gold 4 star. We are also delighted that Michelin has also decided to keep us in their 2016 Great Britain and Ireland Guide Book.
Wales has been described by Rough Guides as “one of the finest natural playgrounds in Europe” coming in at No 8 of the 10 top countries to visit in the world. Book your stay here.

We can accommodate up to six of you so take your pick, come on and  enjoy the experience. Considering a gift? You can buy a Rhedyn voucher and why not combine it with a Good Day Out voucher. Call or email us to make further arrangements.

Rhedyn Guesthouse is perfect for a weekend treat or a romantic break. Take a look at our bedrooms.

We are in Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay and in their Ethical Collection. We hold a silver Award from the GBTS recognising our efforts to keep our own little bit of Mid Wales green and enjoyable. Click here, Green Traveller Review, to find out what others think.

We hope you like looking around our website and if any questions come to mind just give us a call on 01982 551944. You can also book on line – just click on the link above.

Try Mountain biking or bog snorkling in the nearby Cambrian Mountains. Go waterfall walking, canyon jumping, get on top of the world and climb the Brecon Horseshoe over Pen-y-Fen, Cribyn and Corn Du or go underground at Dan-yr-Ogof Caves. Why not while away the day canoeing down the River Wye or hire a scooter to pooter down the lanes; all in the beautiful Brecon Beacons.

Follow by car, on foot, or cycle the ancient drovers route along the Abergwesyn Pass and over the Devil’s Staircase. Discover Wales’ Industrial past and go down into the old working mine at Big Pit.
Rhedyn is right in the middle of all this excitement. We are good for culture vultures, the nearby Brecon Jazz or the Green Man Festival, for food lovers, visit the Abergavenny Food Festival. Mid Wales is packed with brilliant things to do and see and still, as yet, unknown.
Better get here quick.                             


We have also been chosen by Alistair Sawdays Special Places to represent them in their new advertising campaign - Wild Wales. Book a stay with us and discover the wild side of Wales. The Elan Valley - a Top Gear destination, The Cambrian Mountains - the true wilderness of Wales, the Brecon Beacons - a natural breathing space, or vist the home of 'Wacky' -  the nearby LLanwrytd Wells.

Leave your car behind and enjoy our wild and wonderful countryside by electric car or e-bike. Stay with us for a few days, or even longer, you'll love it here.

Come Walking in the Cambrians!

Did you know there are SIX nature reserves in the Cambrian Mountains all within reach of Rhedyn Guesthouse?
The Cambrian Mountains are very much untouched and unexplored and remain mysterious to most of Britain. Today we are introducing you to its six nature reserves to give you an idea of what lies in this intriguing area.

So here’s our guide to the nature reserves in the Cambrian Mountains...

walking in the cambrians

1. Claerwen National Nature Reserve

This nature reserve is the largest expanse of ‘wilderness’ in Wales today. The acidic soil terrain with mineral mine ruins are home to many species; since records began in 1880 more than 180 species of birds have been recorded and polecats and stoats roam free too.
Accessed by the mountain road between Rhayader and Cwmystwyth

2. Nant Irfon National Nature Reserve

This nature reserve lies near the source of the River Irfon which leads to the River Wye. The area is covered in one of the highest areas of sessile oak woodland in Wales with sedimentary rock even dating back as far as 1.5 million years ago. The landscape gives a multicoloured illusion with areas of grassland a dense purple and stands of bracken on the deeper soils. If you’re lucky, you may even see some fritillary butterflies float by in the warmer months.
Accessed north-west of Abergwesyn

3. Allt Rhyd y Groes National Nature Reserve

Welsh for ‘wooded hillside’ this part of Camarthenshire has craggy heathland and tumbling streams which make the perfect habitat for some rare species. Among a range of flora and fauna the most spectacular has to be the bluebell meadows. The Devils’-bit scabious becomes alive with a rainbow of beautiful butterflies in the Spring.
Accessed west of Llyn Brianne in northern Camarthenshir

4. Cors Caron National Nature Reserve

This area is distinctive for its three domes or raised bogs which rise above the level of the lake bed which is fed by the River Teifi. It also houses 170 species of birds including winter visiting Whooper swans in early spring. This reserve is not only a Site of Special Scentific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation but also a wetland of international importance, who knew!
Accessed by boardwalk or via the Ystwyth Trail (linking Tregaron to Aberystwyth)

5. Co Rheidol National Nature Reserve

Like Cors Caron, this nature reserve is also a SAC and a SSSI and blue bells dominate the woodland floor in the Spring, not to mention the distinctive yellow Welsh poppy peaking through too. The humidity is great for a variety of fungi to flourish in the Autumn months and visitors can also play otter-spotting amongst the woodland.
Accessed by the Devils Bridge in the Rheidol Woods

6. Gwenffrwd-Dinas

This nature reserve is most famous as the hideout of the famous highwayman Twm Sion Cati, otherwise known as the Welsh Robin Hood, but is also home to an abundance of birds including flycatchers, wood warblers, chiffchaffs, redstarts, kingfishers, dippers, red kites... to name a few!

Go on, delve into the unknown and see what you can find...









Irfon Valley

Misty, Wild, Cambrian countryside

Our house is set in the middle of a field with uninterrupted views in all directions, except for the sheep. They can be seen wherever you look. From the dining room you can look out on the Mynydd Epynt, an upland area incorporating the Epynt Way, a new trail in this ancient landscape.

Our Rooms

Three delightful bedrooms

Our rooms have been thoughtfully decorated for you to have a serene and peaceful sleep. Each of them is distinct. They all have en-suite bathrooms, two with large showers, and one with an luxurious, deep bath. We have enjoyed modernising them without losing the character of the original 1840s forester's cottage.

Food at Rhedyn

Enjoy locally sourced food

Ciaran works hard in the garden to grow vegetables for the table. We get our eggs from Jenni in Llanfaredd and our meat from Mr. Morgan, our local butcher. Most of the other produce we find throughout our local area. Then the fun starts. Muiread loves cooking, and turns all of this lovely food into sumptuous meals for you.


Lots to do in Mid Wales

We are too busy running our bed and breakfast to take advantage of the fantastic activities available in the area. But for those who have the energy and the drive there are few places in the country that offer as many chances to risk life and limb as you push yourself to your limits.
