About Roger and Katie Smith

We live in Llanwrtyd Wells, running a bed and breakfast with our young family.

Roger and Katie Smith purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Roger and Katie Smith chose Llanwrtyd Wells

This area of the Cambrian Mountains is little known to the masses. The scenery is stunning, the crowds are non exisitant, and there plenty of activities and adventures to have in the area from wild water swimming in the rivers,Walking , Mountain Biking, Horse Riding, going down a Gold mine or climbing up the towers in spectacular Castles. Llanwrtyd Wells (pronounced clan-or-tid) offers three award winning restaurants, 3 pubs and micro brewery and a couple of well stocked convenience stores. The town also hosts the International Bog snorkelling Championships, Man V Horse race and many more original events, why not give them a go.

Beautiful cottage in an idylic setting

  • 5 of 5

Had a most peaceful weekend at Troed Y Rhiw, the cottage is set within beautiful rugged countryside. There are lovely walks up into the hills directly from the cottage. The cottage has been very considerately developed to cater for holiday makers, everything you could wish for. Katie and Roger could not have been more accommodating and helpful with our stay. Beautiful place to get away from everything.
