Y Beudy

Y Beudy sleeps five people and is the lower part of Llannerch y Cawr Longhouse, a Grade II* listed building which dates back to the 16th Century. The property was restored in 1999 retaining many of the traditional features and is now utilised as two self catered semi detached properties, the Upper – Hen Dy and Lower – Y Beudy.

Llannerch y Cawr longhouse is situated close to the Dôl y Mynach Reservoir in the Claerwen Valley and has easy access to the main Claerwen Valley road. The property is just 7 miles outside the town of Rhayader, approximately 4.5 miles from the Elan Valley Visitor Centre and 6 miles from Penbont House tearooms.

Y Beudy would historically have been the livestock end of the Longhouse and as such a first floor was inserted in the late 16th or early 17th century. Y Beudy includes stunning authentic features such as cobbled and flagstone flooring, beamed ceilings, timber structuring and even bats in the roof space! The open-plan property is in a remote location and is off grid, using generator power, there is no phone signal or wifi at the property allowing you to truly get away from everything.

*Please be advised that the floor due to its cobbled nature is uneven and less suitable to the young or infirm.  

During July and August, the bats can be very disruptive, with scratching noises and lots of too-ing and fro-ing.
