The garden deck outside Tollant with views over the hills and meadows.


Nannerth Fawr Farm is a traditional working farm with 200 acres of wonderful countryside to explore. The farm lies at about 900 feet in the upper Wye Valley, just to the north west of the market town of Rhayader or Rhaeadr Gwy, in the old county of Radnorshire. This is an unspoilt area in an uncrowded environment where traditional family farms shape the landscape. We are in a designated dark skies area where you can see the milky way, asteroids and sometimes the aurora borealis.

Nannerth is a working farm in the heart of Wales in ‘kite country’ and has it's own private nature reserve. It is surrounded by the Cambrian mountains and moors of Plynlimon (Pumlumon). Behind the farm rise the high hills of the Elan Valley moorland, while to the south and east the winding river Wye borders almost 2 miles of our valley pastures and meadows.


Nannerth Country Holidays offer a peaceful location, delightful cottages with hot tubs, glamping and wild camping in spectacular "Kite" countryside. It is a peaceful location yet lots to do. Walk, birdwatch or cycle from your door. See daily farm activities such as lambing or badger watch from our treehouse. Explore the ancient woodland and private nature reserve.

Children are very welcome at Nannerth. Friendly animals that can be handled and fed and at lambing time, children with their parents can watch lambs being born and sometimes help in moving new lambs and their mothers. Bottle feeding 'sucky lambs' is very popular and most years we have 2 or 3 lambs on the bottle between late March and late May. The Boer goats are very friendly and their kids are incredibly playful during the spring months. Whilst accompanied by their parents, children can play out in the fields, climb trees and explore the riverside.

Nannerth Fawr Farm is a 200 acre conservation farm where traditional farming, wildlife and biodiversity are all prioritised. Between 50 and 60 species of birds are seen each year in the varied habitats on the farm and these include pied flycatchers, redstarts, dippers, cuckoos, barn owls and red kites. We have over 100 bird boxes in the woodland, wetlands and farmyard and there is good birdwatching from the cottage gardens. The farm has a flock of Welsh mountain sheep and a small flock of Boer goats. The farm trail takes you through the farm, along the River Wye and up onto the open moorland. The private nature reserve has resident water voles and 17 species of dragonfly and damselfly. You can watch badgers from our tree house hide as they come out to feed beneath you. A magical experience.

Holiday properties can accommodate up to 14 people in 3 self catering properties. This is useful for providing quiet spaces and several bathrooms, which suits mixed generation groups. The 3 hot tubs are popular with groups and the communal garden area between the cottages can be used for barbecues
