The Swan Country House retreat is a converted farmhouse surrounded by the spectacular Cambrian mountains.

With its charm-filled quirky interiors, this inviting dog friendly holiday let offers a peaceful and secluded base for families and friends wishing to explore the stunning Welsh countryside or celebrate a special occasion in style.

Sleeping up to 10 people (8 adults, 2 children) in good-sized bedrooms, one with a large balcony overlooking the hills and four bathrooms, one of which is downstairs. There is large conservatory with panoramic views of the mountains with a 14 foot oak dining room table and comfy lounge area. The TV room with its vintage James Bond film posters and log burner is perfect to snuggle up and watch a film or two on the 42” Smart TV and an ideal room for children to have some space whilst the adults relax in the conservatory.

Horse holidays:

If you would like to holiday with your horse, we have stabling and paddocks available. Request for further information and pricing.

Concierge service:

If you are having a special party, we can be on hand if requested in advance as we live next door, so we can help you to ensure your celebration is a memorable one. This can include sourcing special cakes, party decorations, outside caterers and even an ice cream van for the afternoon.

Happy to take delivery of groceries in advance, bike hire or special day excursions for example fishing on one of the local rivers or lakes or an off-road 4×4 trip through the Elan Valley organised through local companies. “Posh picnics” can be ordered and delivered to an agreed location within the local area.

By car:

If you are using a SatNav, please use the marker on Google Maps for the Swan Country House B&B rather than the post code as we share the post code with the surrounding farms. Avoid taking the mountain road and make sure you drive via Rhayader.

If travelling north through Rhayader on the A470, pass through the centre of Rhayader staying on the A470, then turn right at the leisure centre on the B4518 for St Harmon.

After 3.5 miles you'll be in St Harmon.

As you enter St Harmon, take the first right at the sign for "Abbey Cwmhir 6" and follow the road round to the left. Do not go up the track marked Tynewydd with the dead end sign.

Stay on this road for approximately one third of a mile and you'll see a sign for The Swan and a Visit Wales four star sign on the right hand side just before the bridge. Drive up this track and park to the right of the pond on the tarmac.

N.B. If you have passed the farm on your left called Bailey Bedw, you have just missed our turning on the right.

If coming from the East into Rhayader on the A44 once in the town turn right at the clock tower onto the A470, then turn right at the leisure centre onto the B4518 for St Harmon. Then follow the directions above.
