The Mid Wales Bunkhouse is located at Woodhouse Farm, midway between Rhayader and Llanidloes, just off the B4518.
Woodhouse is less than 2 hours drive from Worcester and the M5, the M50 at Ross on Wye, and the M4 at Newport, making it easily accessible. From the clock tower in the centre of Rhayader take the A44/A470 towards Llangurig for about 100 metres. On the right is Rhayader Leisure Centre, and a turning signed to St. Harmon, B4518. Take this road, for about 5 miles, passing through the village of St. Harmon, and on to the village of Pant-Y-Dwr. At the Mid Wales Inn turn right, signed Bwylch-Y-Sarnau. After almost a mile you will come to a turning on the right, just before a garage. Take this turn. Proceed for nearly half a mile and Woodhouse is on the right, as indicated by the finger post.
Woodhouse can also be approached from Llanidloes. This route is narrow in places with several steep inclines and whilst very scenic is not recommended for caravans or larger vehicles. Take the B4518 signposted to Twylch and Pant Y Dwr. On arriving in Pant Y Dwr you will then need to turn left by the Mid Wales Inn.
Please follow these directions in preference to satalite navigation, which has taken several of our guests to a nearby farm instead.
