    “A beautiful apartment in an ...”
    A beautiful apartment in an absolutely perfect 'hideaway' location in the middle of nowhere. Perfect for a romantic retreat and for those that love walking. The scenery is just stunning. The apartment was adequately equipment (although a washing machine would make it perfect if spending more than one week), sympathically converted hay loft. The owners were very welcoming and made us feel relaxed and very at home. I would recommend this destination 100% and if we were to stay in the area ...

The property

Llanwrthwl 2.5 miles. A cosy, self-contained, first floor studio apartment with a superb four poster bed, set on a hillside 2.5 miles outside the tiny village of Llanwrthwl.

A sympathetic conversion of a former hayloft overlooking wonderful open countryside, this cosy apartment retains high ceilings and one very low beam, making it a unique and charming romantic retreat.

The wonderful Wye Valley Walk runs directly past the property offering beautiful scenery and walks from the doorstep.

The beautiful Elan Valley lakes are nearby, and there is wonderful scenery all around.

Rhayader and Builth Wells are within easy reach, and offer shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants.

This wonderful part of Wales offers something for everyone and this superb apartment is the perfect base to make the most of the area.

The bustling market town of Rhayader is three and a half miles away and has an abundance of shops, restaurants, pubs and a leisure complex. The Red Kite Feeding Station on the outskirts of the town is a great attraction not to be missed, while the annual Royal Welsh Show is just one of the attractions in nearby Builth Wells, where a great variety of exhibitions and sales are held all year round.
