Find Accommodation near 'Gilfach Reserve - Bird Watching'


Gilfach Farm is the flagship nature reserve of Radnorshire Wildlife Trust and is situated near the confluence of the Marteg River with the River Wye, 2 miles north of Rhayader in the Cambrian Mountains of Mid Wales. It covers 410 acres and encompasses a wide variety of habitats including rocky outcrops, traditionally managed hay meadows, woodlands and river valleys.

There is wheelchair access via a ramp (with assistance) to the Otter hide located by a stream approximately a quarter of a mile before reaching the farm. The hide has foldable seating to enable space in front of a lower viewing window.  There is also space for one car to park near the hide.

The reserve is a haven for wildlife and our researchers photographed the redstart in image 6 just outside the farm buildings.

Due to the nature of this wild area much of the reserve is not wheelchair accessible or suitable for visitors with limited mobility. However the breathtaking scenery along the drive through the reserve up to the farm makes this site well worth a visit.
