Quirky lodge with creature comforts in the Black Mountains. Idyllic 17 acre farm with footpaths, wild swimming, horse and donkey trek experiences. Perfect for a real rural retreat in Herefordshire.
Make your great escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life to this secret sanctuary in an enchanting Herefordshire setting, just 2 miles from the Brecon Beacons National Park. Two guests, and a couple of delighted dogs, can make themselves at home at this magical, one-bedroom holiday cabin. Set within its own enclosed garden, in 17 acres of farmland in the Black Mountains close to the Welsh border, the lodge is ideal for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities. It is also well-positioned for days out to the famous book town of Hay-on-Wye. Enter this charming retreat by taking a couple of steps up to the veranda and then opening the front door to find yourselves in an inviting open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Savour the warm ambience created by the abundance of wood and interesting American-style artefacts. The water will need to be heated on the hob for washing up, a small chore in this lovely setting. Light the wood burner, then recline on the sofa to watch TV or a DVD before heading off to the double bedroom. Find the lodge also includes a shower room. Relax on the veranda or in the garden on fine days; light the BBQ, read a few pages of your book or take your four-legged friends for a walk through the trees. There is space to lock bikes and parking for one car. Stay close to home by exploring the farm, on which the owners also live, and even going on a donkey ramble or indulging in a little wild swimming. Venture about 2 miles from the property to the Beacon Beacons, with its opportunities for walking, cycling, canoeing and climbing. Head into Hay-on-Wye, about 7 miles away, to shop for local produce and browse in its independent outlets and bookshops.
