    “The Happy Union Stables is a great place to stay, tastefully decorated and comfortable.”

    Karen and John are lovely and the cake on our arrival was a welcome touch as we had a very long journey. The pub is welcoming, as are the locals - we bumped into a couple of them in Aberystwyth by chance and they stopped to say hello! Everything for our immediate needs was provided (milk, tea, coffee etc). It is a great base to use to visit other places and Karen and John were mines of useful information with recommendations for places to go. We would certainly recommend the waterfalls at ...

    Karen and John are lovely and the cake on our arrival was a welcome touch as we had a very long journey. The pub is welcoming, as are the locals - we bumped into a couple of them in Aberystwyth by chance and they stopped to say hello! Everything for our immediate needs was provided (milk, tea, coffee etc). It is a great base to use to visit other places and Karen and John were mines of useful information with recommendations for places to go. We would certainly recommend the waterfalls at Devil's Bridge (not for the faint-hearted), as well as the steam railway (stunning scenery), the Elan Valley Dams and Reservoirs (magnificent scenery) and, if you want to travel that far, Caernarfon Castle (fantastic and fascinating history) and its surrounding quaint streets are well worth a visit! We were unlucky enough to have bad weather for most of our trip, but it certainly did not spoil our holiday - far from it, it made us think outside the box for places to visit. We would certainly recommend it to others and if we go back to Wales, would certainly visit again.

The property

A delightful detached barn conversion in the centre of the small, peaceful village of Abbeycwmhir, in the lovely Radnorshire Hills of Mid Wales.

This spacious Wales cottage has been successfully renovated, retaining some original wooden beams and trusses, which combine with contemporary fixtures and fittings to create welcoming, quality accommodation.

Glyndwr's Way national trail and Cycle Route 25 run through the village, both offering beautiful scenery on the doorstep.

A short drive away are the Cambrian Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, which provide even more of a walking challenge.

Enjoy a ride on the Brecon Mountain Railway through breathtaking scenery, the beautiful lakes of the Elan Valley or the Red Kite Feeding Station at Rhayader.

At the end of an exciting day, enjoy a quiet drink in the cottage owner's village inn, which is next door.

The perfect Abbeycwmhir cottage, and an ideal location for a relaxing family holiday or romantic break.

About the location

ABBEYCWMHIR

Rhayader 6 miles; Llandrindod Wells 10 miles.

Abbeycwmhir ('abbey in the long valley') is a peaceful, picturesque and historic village, which nestles in the lovely Radnorshire Hills and stands on Glyndwr's Way national walking trail. This tranquil village is home to the well known ruins of a Cistercian Abbey founded in 1176, with its local CADW Interpretation Centre, The Hall, an impressive country mansion with lovely gardens, which are all open to the public, and the Happy Union Inn, which is an old fashioned ale house. There is wonderful walking and cycling from the village, with trails and paths meandering their way through woodland and along rivers, or for more challenging terrain, simply drive the short distance to the nearby Cambrian Mountains or the spectacular Brecon Beacons. Visit Llandrindod Wells, Rhayader or Builth Wells to find a variety of shops, museums, craft centres, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants. Visit the Red Kite Feeding Station at Rhayader, which offers a fantastic opportunity to see these beautiful birds at close range, take a trip to the peaceful Elan Valley Lakes, the Gilfach Nature Reserve or test your nerve at the Phil Price Rally School or the Underhill Farm Horse Riding School. A perfect base for a family holiday or a romantic break in a lovely peaceful location.
