We wanted a place to relax and slow the pace down for week. This place delivered everything we wanted. Comfortable, charismatic, charming. A perfect location for a base for walking,sight seeing and plenty more. The hosts are wonderful, welcoming and very friendly as are the local people. I would highly recommend this accomodation for all types of holiday. Russ Burton.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Firstly the tripadvisor map does not show our location correctly! Dolifor is a 17th Century former farmhouse located in the glorious scenery of the Elan Valley just outside Rhayader and 30 minutes from the border with England. Our own track is accessed off a local lane, so is very peaceful and enjoys far ranging views. Those who stay with us can walk through the many local woods and take time to observe the various birds native to the area. The Elan valley area is a protected environment for the diversity of fauna and flora that thrive within it. There is much to explore in the area of the lakes of the Elan Valley and the Cambrian Mountains from the front door. The Elan Valley Trail itself starts a kilometre away giving The Rhayader Loop 18 miles of track and road to walk or cycle. The rivers Wye and Elan are both within close walking distance below the house. The source of the river Wye and the Severn lay just a few miles to the North of Dolifor. ... more less
