Very good accommodation, made welcome by the owner, comfortable, a good centre for many interesting villages and activities. Elan valley very pretty area and good for walking. Nearer to Rhayader than Llan... We always started out via Rhayader rather than Llan... , so suggest that Rhayader is put in your brochure rather than Llan...
