Dyffryn Cottage dates from the 1600's and one of the original cottages in the centre of the tiny and peaceful hamlet of Painscastle, close to Hay-on-Wye.  It's a picture book cottage with roses around the door, a cottage garden, pretty bedrooms, a cosy sitting room with a lovely inglenook fireplace and a fabulous large conservatory that opens up to make the most of the large and very private garden.

The village of Painscastle is close to The Begwyn Hills, a National Trust-protected range of hills which is ideal country for walking and rambling. The village pub, The Roast Ox, is just a very short walk away and a great place for eating and drinking.  This is a great location off the beaten track with excellent walking Offa's Dyke Path, local pony trekking/ horse riding, golf, mountain biking, walking, bird watching, canoeing or just wandering through and browsing the bookshops in Hay-on-Wye, only 6 miles away.


Sleeps 6 - 3 bedrooms

A pretty Shaker style country kitchen with electric cooker with hob, microwave, fridge and a freezer, dishwasher and a washing machine. Welsh Dresser, kitchen table and chairs. An entrance lobby with room for coats and boots etc.

There is magnificent feature stone fireplace with a  huge oak lintel and woodburner (the owner provides the first few logs to get started and further logs can be purchased from the local petrol station). Double doors lead  from the sitting room through to a conservatory with views all around the garden.

Bedroom 2: Double bedrooms

Bedroom 3: With twin beds.

      Service rating : Makkelijk contact, duidelijke informatie.
      Mails met details opnieuw toegestuurd gekregen toen ik ze niet meer kon vinden in mijn mailbox
      Product : Een heerlijke cottage. Netjes, schoon, knus.
      Prachtige omgeving.
      De tuin was geweldig voor onze hond.

      De "tweepersoonsbedden" waren met een afmeting van 1.80m x 1.30m veel te klein voor twee personen. (mijn man is langer dan 1.80m) Na vier slapeloze nachten hebben we het luchtbed dat in de cottage aanwezig was opgepompt en hebben mijn man en ik verder gescheiden geslapen: één op het luchtbed in de woonkamer en één in het "tweepersoonsbed".

      Service rating : Helpful and friendly.
      Product : Lovely location. Very well equipped and comfortable. Great selection of books to read on wet days. Small points - freezer was long overdue for a defrost to the point where door would not close and cobwebs everywhere.

      Thank you for letting us know about your stay at Dyffryn cottage and glad you enjoyed your stay.
      We will pass on your constructive comments to the owner.
      Best Wishes
