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, darts 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. A terrific, welcoming Rhayader cottage for all ages.

    • “Fabulous welcome with cake and drinks on arrival. Cottage best equipped we have ever been to, even managed to bake a cake. Games room a big hit with everyone, great array of games. Hot water available all the time, all facilities brilliant. Log burners lovely, although only used once as we had gorgeous weather so not really needed. Will definitely consider going again. Brilliant! !!!!!”

Will definitely consider going again and recommend to friends. FABULOUS !!!!!!”

    • “It was such an idyllic, secluded location with beautiful views. We loved watching the red kites flying overhead, and the bats in the garden at twilight. A lovely house, we would definitely come back.”

    Mrs Stewart, Southampton, July 2014

    • “We confirmed this cottage for our group who were based at the Royal Welsh for the week. The location was within 15 minutes of the Show ground which was ideal for the daily commute. The owner went out of her way to welcome all who were staying at the cottage. A great welcome and a great service throughout their stay. Many thanks.”

    Miss Davies, Cardiff, July 2014

    • “We had a great time chilling out and relaxing, as well as exploring the surrounding area. The games room was fantastic, loved the garden and being able to walk in the surrounding fields. The water tasted lovely! We enjoyed cosy evenings in front of the wood burner, the location was away from it all but accessible. Would certainly be happy to return anytime.”
