Very isolated cottage. Its at the end of a very long and potholed track with 3 gates to negotiate. But there is total privacy, peace and quiet. A few sheep wander past occasionally. This is a very old house that must have a long history which would be wonderful to read about. The house is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable.

Amazing location - remote but perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet. Property is well equipped. There is wi-fi but can be variable in speed - but I would expect this given the location. Short walk to the Washpool - great space to swim and paddle - dog loved it! Friendly farmer next door and friendly local sheep! Bird watching is excellent.Read more There is nothing that the local garage shop doesn't stock - 15 min drive to main supermarket. The Trout Inn (Beulah) - great meals and very friendly. Hide
