Why not take some time to visit the local kite feeding stations at Gigrin Farm in Rhayader? Watching the majestic Red Kites circle and feed in large numbers is truly breath-taking and it’s worth taking time to sit back and simply gaze at the national bird of Wales.
Rhayader town is a real hidden gem. A bustling market town where you will find lovely local independent shops, cafes and pubs including a traditional hardware store – a real treat and a blast from the past.
Rhayader is close to Builth Wells, home to the Royal Welsh Show and Show Ground, a perfect distance to be able to easily attend one of the many annual shows and still be able to retreat to the stunning Mid Wales countryside.
Take a trip to Gilfach Nature Reserve, where you will find over 400 acres of open moorland, flower rich grassland and oak woodland, offering a circular nature trail and a great place to enjoy a picnic at one of the spots and simply relax and let the world go by.
