Delightful, secluded cottage, providing a perfect base for small families or couples looking to explore the mid Wales countryside, with long walks and cycle routes on the doorstep.
Explore mile-upon-mile of sublime countryside from this remote cottage in the heart of Wales. This rural hideaway is one of two converted barns on a working farm, suitable for up to three people and two canine companions. Surrounded by lush green valleys and historic towns, it’s a fantastic base for exploring the area on foot, by paw or on two wheels. And with no Wi-Fi to distract you, you’ll be able to truly switch off here.
The cottage is a welcome sight after you return from exciting days out. Throw off dirty boots and wipe down muddy paws in the shared laundry room before preparing a quick snack in the cottage-style kitchen. It has everything you need to whip up tasty meals and nibbles made with local Welsh produce. On a warm evening, it’s nice to dine alfresco on the patio as you take in the wonderful views across the valley. From the kitchen, take a couple of steps up to the lounge, where you can unwind with a film or magazine. A couple more steps lead up to the two bedrooms – a double and a single. You’ll be out like a light with all that fresh Welsh air and good food.
The charming market town of Builth Wells is 10 miles from the property. It has some lovely shops and places to eat, as well as delightful walks along the River Wye. Wildlife enthusiasts can watch red kites feeding at Gigrin Farm (12.5 miles), while the Elan Valley (14 miles) is a must-see, with its many dams, reservoirs and abundance of wildlife. It’s also great for stargazing as it has some of the clearest night skies in the UK.
