Stay at the Rodd

Modern art lovers now have a unique opportunity to stay in one of our two holiday lets on the 250 acre Rodd estate formerly owned by Sir Sidney Nolan. The estate sits in the beautiful Hindwell Valley on the English Welsh border close to the picturesque Welsh market town of Presteigne and the internationally renowned town of books, Hay on Wye.

Our Holiday Lets

  • Orchard Cottage

    The lovely one-bedroom cottage, formerly the gardener’s cottage, sits amongst a collection of medieval buildings which centre around Rodd Court, the Jacobean manor house Sidney lived in with his wife Mary. There is space to paint or write and guests are free to wander the grounds and gardens and take in the tranquil location which first drew Sidney to live there.

  • Rodd Farmhouse

    With great views over open countryside, this pleasant, semi-detached property offers guests spacious accommodation. It boasts its own private garden, where you will spot a variety of birds and local wildlife. Presteigne is a fascinating little medieval market town in mid-Wales, but literally right on the English border, with history and buildings dating back to the 14th century. The Judge’s Lodgings and Offa’s Dyke footpath are local to Presteigne.
