Hidden among hills of perfectly green grass, Holidays Wales offers families unique accommodation in the form of luxury underground houses and shepherds huts with stunning countryside views, chic interiors and private, outdoor hot tubs for every family. Just a stones throw from the scenic Elan Valley, this is the place to chuck on your walking boots, pack a picnic and set about exploring the Great Outdoors. And in such an idyllic setting, it’s impossible not to breathe deep and really relax.

About this place

Listed since September 2023

Holidays Wales is a family run affair, made up of three generations; Howell and his two sons, Ben and Jake, Gemma, Ben’s partner, and three beautiful children, Archie, Monty and Ivy. Not forgetting Jake’s handsome little boy Jack. Ben, Gemma and kids live just down the road from The Views site, so they are never far away if you have any questions or enquiries about your stay. We run Holidays Wales alongside our farm, so expect to see lots of four legged friends around the place.

Owner recommendations

  • Drive, walk explore the amazing scenery and views that the Elan Valley has to offer, you will find a Visitors Centre for any information you may need whilst visiting as well as play area for children.

  • Take a trip to Gilfach Nature Reserve, where you will find over 400 acres of open moorland, flower rich grassland and oak woodland, offering a circular nature trail and a great place to enjoy a picnic at one of the spots and simply relax and let the world go by. 

  • Head to the Red Kite Feeding Centre in Rhayader. Watch hundreds of Red Kites feeding daily, located in beautiful countryside with a coffee shop, gift shop and picnic site. 

  • Paddle board, kayak or hire Dragon Boats from Llandrindod Wells Boathouse, or simlpy take a stroll around the charming lake. 

  • Head slightly further field to view some of Wales’ most famous waterfalls and bridges at Devils Bridge, Pontarfynach. If you have the whole day, why not hop on the Rheidol Railway, a restored steam train that takes a scenic route to the seaside town of Aberystwyth.
