Glamping near Elan Valley 

Elan Valley is located in Wales, UK, just outside the small town of Rhayader in the county of Powys. Powys is the largest county in Wales, and covers the areas of Radnorshire and Montgomeryshire, the majority of Brecknockshire and a small portion of Denbighshire.


The Elan Valley Reservoirs offer incredible scenery; a photographer and hiker's delight! There are 6 dams to explore; Craig Goch, Garreg Ddu, Pen y Garreg, Caban Coch, Claerwen and Dol y Mynach. The dams, reservoirs and 73-mile aqueduct of the Elan Valley were built over 100 hundred years ago to supply desperately-needed clean water to Birmingham. It was an epic feat of civil engineering, set within an area of outstanding scenic beauty.


Today, the dams and reservoirs provide a lasting amenity in their own right for visitors to enjoy, as well as safeguarding the natural habitats of numerous species of flora and fauna.​​
