A contemporary eco-home for a large group, with magnificent walks from the doorstep and featuring an abundance of glass, wonderful views and bright and airy living spaces.
Relaxing is easy at this eco holiday property near Lower Chapel (3.5 miles) in Powys, part of a complex of properties in the Honddu Valley which prides itself on its environmentally friendly ethos. Sleeping eight guests across four bedrooms, it’s ideal for families or friends who want to detox from hectic lifestyles, and be inspired by the calming natural surroundings. There’s no need to leave moping hounds behind as four dogs are welcome to join you in this happy holiday retreat; and you’ll find shops, pubs, and restaurants within 5 miles.
Step inside this welcoming cottage with boutique-style interiors, and an open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room. Settle into the spacious sofa and admire the woodland views through floor-to-ceiling picture windows by the warmth of a wood burner. Take a step up to the well-equipped kitchen and cook up a storm. Gather around the roomy dining table for board games, or curl up with a good book in the snug room with countryside views. Amble upstairs for the best night’s sleep in one of four pretty bedrooms. On sunny afternoons, step out to the decked balcony and enjoy coffee together. Or relax in the enclosed garden while children play on the lawn.
Explore the Brecon Beacons National Park (5 miles), a natural playground for a variety of outdoor pursuits, along with the prettiest of villages and market towns where you can source delicious food ingredients for home-cooked meals. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day out on the hills with friends, by bike, foot, or hoof. Meander along the riverside in canoes or grab a moment for some mindfulness, listening to the sounds of nature. Be sure to visit Brecon, a colourful market town, made for pottering and tea-time treats after a lofty hike on the surrounding hills.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
