The Bakehouse 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, first a butchers and then The Bakehouse, occupying the first floor. Using a rope and pulley to lift the flour, the old hatch can still be seen on the property. The Bakehouse has been meticulously converted to capture the spirit of a bustling mid Wales market town. Standing in the heart of Rhayader, this generous first floor apartment offers convenience and comfort as standard as well as flexible accommodation with its zip and link bed options.

The Bakehouse 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 Bakehouse 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 Bakehouse be your base to make Mid Wales memories.
