The Property

Llanwrthwl 1.5 miles. This charming Llanwrthwl cottage, a detached stone barn conversion, stands in a wonderfully peaceful location on a small riverside farm, nestling beside the banks of the River Wye in the picturesque Wye Valley. The cottage, surrounded by the stunning Cambrian Mountains, offers superb views in every direction, plus excellent walking and cycling, with both the Wye Valley Walk and the National Cycle Route running nearby. Full of character, with a Rayburn, woodburner, exposed beams, oak flooring throughout and painted stone walls, the cottage combines modern facilities with an inviting cottage atmosphere. A fisherman's paradise, there is private salmon, trout and grayling fishing at the end of the garden, or why not relax in the conservatory, soaking up the magnificent views? Otters, buzzards and peregrine falcons make their home in the area, while in nearby Rhayader, visit the Red Kite Feeding Station. The spectacular reservoirs of the Elan Valley are just a few miles away, with walks and cycling galore. Also well placed for trips into Shropshire or the Welsh coast, this truly is a lovely Wales cottage in a stunning location.
