Dyffryn Cottage one of the original cottages in the centre of this small and peaceful hamlet of Painscastle, close to Hay-on-Wye.

It may be a picture book cottage with roses around the door but has been excellently restored to a warm and comfortable place to stay with all the modern amenities expected in a modern house. There is a large enclosed 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 across the village square and has a great reputation as a friendly pub serving good food. 

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. There are wonderful scenic drives from the cottage, into Mid Wales and the Border country and Herefordshire, with pretty village and good lunch time pubs.
