An impressive wing of a period property for families or friends set in 2,000-acres of mature grounds, with walking and cycling through the Irfon Valley straight from the door.
A paradise for walkers and nature lovers, this eye-catching holiday home is set among ancient woodlands and valleys in the Cambrian Hills. The River Irfon flows through the valley, with several spots for wild swimming if you’re feeling adventurous. The property is set in a self-contained private wing of a historic manor house owned by generations of the same family for more than 400 years. Remember to bring your rackets and balls for a game of tennis.
This reverse-level property is designed to make the most of the amazing views across the valley. Three of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, including a generously-sized double. Upstairs, you’ll find a large kitchen/diner which is a brilliant space for socialising and preparing homecooked meals. If you want to eat out instead, there’s a welcoming pub in the village of Beulah about a mile away. The cottage’s lounge, which overlooks the valley and lake in the distance, is an inviting space to unwind. Gather around the large wood burner for cosy evenings in front of the TV. There’s also a snug single bedroom on this floor. Outside, you have a private garden for BBQs and catching some rays. You’re also free to explore the walled garden and water meadow in the grounds surrounding the property.
If you want to get out and about, don’t miss a visit to Llanwrtyd Wells (5.5 miles), the smallest town in Britain. Not only does it have great pubs and restaurants, it’s also known for its unusual sporting events, including the World Alternative Games and bog-snorkelling triathlons. Further afield, the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells (14.5 miles) offers boat rides on the lake, Fancy a scenic drive or walk up at the Elan Valley (19 miles), while avid readers will enjoy browsing the bookstores of Hay-on-Wye (29 miles).
