Contemporary country-style cottage near Builth Wells, with spectacular views across the Irfon Valley to the Eppynt Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.
Set in a quiet hamlet near Garth, just north of Brecon, this luxury retreat sleeps four guests across two bedrooms. Find nature trails and wildlife walks through beautiful private woodland from the doorstep. Go horse riding on the bridleway above the cottage. You’ll find a pub (1 mile), and a shop (2.5 miles) nearby, while the Victorian spa town of Builth Wells (7 miles), offers an inspiring Arts Centre, a variety of shopping, and regular events at the Royal Welsh Showground. Wildlife enthusiasts should head for the Elan Valley (21 miles), an ancient landscape of dams, reservoirs and outdoor adventures. Stroll with your canine companions, go mountain biking or enjoy a family picnic in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Step inside this stylish property, once the 18th-century home of the Estate Game Keeper, now decorated in contemporary style with calming hues and elegant pops of colour. Everything is conveniently set on one level, and the owners have thought of everything so you’ll have less holiday packing to do. The beautifully designed kitchen is a domestic goddess’ dream with a built-in electric oven and hob, a microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, while the dining table surely offers the best seats in the house with spectacular views of the countryside and hills beyond. Unwind after a challenging cycle or a shopping jaunt in the cosy living room by the toasty wood burner and TV with Freeview so you can catch up on favourite films with friends. As night falls, you’ll find two inviting bedrooms, both are super-king-size bedrooms (zip-and-link beds can be adapted to twins) with en-suite bathrooms (shower over the bath and WC); one of the bedrooms has French doors which open out to a sunny terrace, and the second bedroom offers magnificent views of the valley.
Outside, there’s a woodland track driveway, suitable for most cars and with ample parking for guests. There’s a lawned area, a BBQ, and garden furniture, plus extensive grounds to explore. Private fishing for trout can be arranged with the owner on the lake, while stargazers will delight in the night skies in this wonderful region - don’t forget your telescope!
