We loved the quirky idea of staying in an old police station, complete with police cells! The exterior was in keeping with the age of the house but inside was modern, spacious, very clean and well kept.

The property was very spacious, modern and comfortable. We have friends in the area so we will definitely be staying at The Old Courthouse again and would recommend it to anyone visiting the village!

The house was great - the Elan Valley reservoirs provided wonderful views and lots of level walking for two oldies who can't climb mountains any more.

I booked the Old Court House as a last minute break for the family, and on arrival we were not dissapointed. The old cells are still in place which the kids found facinating. I advise anyone who is thinking about booking this accommodation to do it, dont mess around, you will not regret it. We ordered our groceries from Tesco and they arrived at the time slot we booked, this saved us loadibg the car with food. Rhayader has many fine eating places and there is a pub opposite which can be loud on a Saturday but all quiet from 12.30am. Aberystwyth is a good 1 hour drive with Cardiff being reached in around 2 hours. We did not park the car as suggested by the owner as the street was not very well lit, we used the street directly opposite without any problem or issue. Book and Enjoy.
