This lovely farmhouse in a very peaceful and private location yet only 3 miles from Builth Wells, sheltered on one side by an enormous ancient oak tree and surrounded by miles of woodland and farmland. From the house it is only a five minute walk over the fields to the very pretty tiny parish Church of St. Davids at Llanynis, set beside the River Irfon and where the last Welsh Prince of Wales, Prince Llywelyn reputedly prayed in 1282 before his final battle in nearby Cilmery where he was defeated by the English. 
This is a wonderful location for nature lovers with over 350 acres of woodlands and farmland to walk and explore with well cared for bridle ways and footpaths and where Red Kites and Peregrines abound to name just a couple of the resident birds.
The River Irfon also has some really beautiful deep pools for wild swimming and paddling or just to sit beside the river for a picnic and watch the flowing on down to the River Wye.
The River Irfon, within walking distance just across the fields, provides some excellent Trout and Grayling fishing.   The Irfon is a major tributary of the River Wye, so with 2 miles of double bank and one mile of single bank private fishing - this is a great location for six fishermen. The Fishing is £20.00 per rod per day - discussed and payable to the owner.
A great place for bringing bikes with quiet lanes to explore or the mountain Bike trails up and around Llanwrtyd Wells, in Cambrian Hills, The Abergwyesyn Valley, Elan Valley with its spectacular Reservoirs and Dams, The Crychan Forest and beyond.
The closest pubs are The Trout at Beulah or The Aberceiros Inn at Llangammach Wells approximately 10 minutes drive from the farmhouse or for a bit of pampering whilst the chaps fish why not book into The Spa at The Lake Hotel at Llangammach  Wells or try the little pub called The Red Lion at Llanafan Fawr.

Unforgettable views, valleys, lakes and endless space. The Epynt mountain range, the Abergwesyn Valley, and the Cambrian Mountains - remote, wild and sparsely populated. Combine this landscape with the old spa towns of Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells and Llanwyrtd Wells and you've got an undiscovered gem of an area. Famous for ambitious conservation projects, extraordinary events - Man vs Horse and Underwater Bog Snorkling and the excellent mountain biking in the area, but there's plenty more to discover in this area North of Brecon.
