The property

Rhayader 4.5 miles.

A delightful detached cottage set in open countryside with mountain views from all aspects, in a rural location 4.5 miles from Rhayader.

Created from two separate properties, this picturesque Rhayader cottage stands alone at the end of a single farm track in the most peaceful location.

Full of character, this pretty Rhayader cottage retains many original features including open beams, flagged floors, wooden floorboards throughout the first floor and wonderful open fireplaces.

The lovely large kitchen table with settle seating is perfect for family meals, followed by relaxation in the superb sitting room or the very large games room, specifically adapted from an old barn with vaulted beamed ceiling, a cosy woodburner, comfy seats, a TV and DVD, a pool table, table football and table tennis.

Enjoy alfresco dining in the pretty cottage garden, which has an area large enough to enjoy a friendly game of football, or explore the local countryside with walks from the doorstep.

You may well see Red Kites overhead, along with all the other birdlife around the cottage, but do visit the Red Kite feeding station in nearby Rhayader for an experience never to be forgotten.

The Elan Valley lakes and the many shows and exhibitions at the Royal Welsh Showground offer varied days out for all the family.
