    “The cottage was very peaceful and location perfect for a week away over Christmas.”

The property

A quaint former schoolmaster’s cottage that is part of an old school house.

The school building is now an art gallery and café which is open from Easter to November.

The cottage is a perfect base for walkers and those wishing to explore the Welsh Marches and Radnor hills. This tiny, cosy cottage, right next to Bleddfa church, comprises a snug living room with sitting and dining area and small kitchen downstairs, with a double bedroom and en-suite shower and toilet upstairs.

To the side of the cottage is a gate that leads to the fully enclosed lawned garden area where you can sit in the summer and enjoy a drink. Nearby Knighton has a selection of local pubs, as well as the Offa’s Dyke Centre where you can find out more about the famous ancient landmark.

There are local footpaths and the Radnor Forest is only a mile away.

Not far is the fabulous countryside of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, peppered with picturesque historic towns and villages. You are twelve miles from Llandrindod Wells, a Victorian Spa town and twenty miles from the Elan Valley, a magnificent series of reservoirs and Victorian dams, a real piece of industrial of heritage.

Slightly further afield, you are twenty miles from Builth Wells, home of the Royal Welsh Showground with its timetable of annual events.

Alternatively a 25 mile drive will take you to the pretty town of Hay-on-Wye, famous for its bookshops, with nearby canoeing, kayaking and horse-riding.
