Gilfach Nature Reserve

Radnorshire Wildlife Trust
St. Harmon
Rhayader
Powys
LD6 5LF

Situated in a beautiful setting at the mouth of the Marteg Valley in the Cambrian Mountains of mid-Wales, Gilfach is locally unique because of its wide variety of habitats: high moorland to enclosed meadow, oak woodland to rocky upland river. Because of this variety the farm supports a tremendous abundance of plants and animals within a comparatively small area. The richness of wildlife has adapted to living in the various habitats created over the centuries through the practice of traditional farming.

Also on the site are Gilfach Longhouse, a late Medieval 'A' frame cruk construction building and a fine 18th century Barn. There are various trails and paths to follow.
