Cyfie Farm Holiday Cottages

Llanfihangel 1.5 miles. A group of four beautifully-renovated holiday cottages, set around a courtyard, next to the owners’ home on their working livestock farm, amongst one acre of country gardens, surrounded by open farmland and rolling countryside scenery, within reach of the village of Llanfihangel, the town of Llanfyllin and the breathtaking Lake Vyrnwy. Situated in a rural location, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasting hillside and valley views, these lovely cottages can be booked individually and will suit couples, families and friends wishing to spend time together, perhaps for a special anniversary or birthday celebration? These superb cottages have all been sympathetically and lovingly restored from 17th century buildings to provide exceptional holiday accommodation. The cottages have an abundance of charm and character and are all individually designed, and have been finished with a great level of care with wonderful attention to detail throughout. Outside there’s off road parking, as well as shared grounds and gardens, where you can take a stroll and easily find a little quiet corner, where you can sit and relax whilst reading a good book, be inspired by the surrounding landscape and take in the spectacular scenery and views. Each cottage also enjoys the benefit of the on-site spa facilities of a hot tub and sauna. From the warming bubbles of the hot tub, you can admire the stunning views over the Vyrnwy Valley and across the width of Wales, including the vistas encompassing The Long Mynd and Stiperstones in Shropshire to Cader Idris on the Welsh coast. Discover delightful walking, stargazing and birdwatching from the doorstep, and close by you’ll discover Lake Vyrnwy, with walks, sailing, cycling, fishing and many other activities, plus the Rainbow Trails, a wonderful myriad of trails, bridle paths and bike tracks, including Glyndwy's Way and The Anne Griffiths Bible Walk. The nearest village, Llanfihangel has a tea room and parlour pub, and close by is the charming town of Llanfyllin, which nestles deep in the scenic Cain Valley and offers a good selection of shops where you can buy all of your essentials. Within easy reach are the beautiful Berwyn Mountain range and the picturesque Snowdonia National Park, while the superb beaches and coastline of Wales are only an hour’s drive away, and Wrexham, Shrewsbury and Chester are within reach. There is so much to see and do, made all the more pleasurable and memorable by these wonderful holiday cottages at Cyfie Farm.
