Located in the heart of Rhayader, The Cornhill Smithy offers self-catering accommodation for up to eight people. Dating back to the 16th century, it combines atmospheric original features with all the modern home comforts. Pet and bike-friendly, it’s the perfect base for exploring the stunning landscapes of the Elan Valley and Mid Wales.
Set in the courtyard of the former Cornhill Inn, the Smithy is ideal for groups, families and couples looking to experience the breathtaking countryside around Rhayader. Owners Shane and Tiffany are keen outdoor enthusiasts and will be happy to share recommendations on walks and biking routes, plus any other local information you require.
After a busy day exploring you can refresh in the large, well-equipped open plan kitchen. Then settle down on a comfy sofa in front of the roaring log burner to talk about the day’s adventures or play some board games. Outside, the courtyard is a great place to sit and watch the red kites circling overhead, while a large covered area means you can enjoy the outdoor space whatever the weather.
The ‘Smithy’ is a 5 minute walk to the local parks, riverside walk, pump track and the cycle trail that leads to the Elan Valley. It’s also less than a 5 minute walk to local pubs, shops and music venue.
