The property

Rhayader 3.2 miles.

Nestled in St Harmon near Rhayader, Wales is this fantastic, detached, single-storey cottage, Ger Yr Afon Cottage.

With elevated decking and a hot tub overlooking a river at the bottom of the garden, the cottage is an idyllic setting for a romantic getaway or a family trip to explore the Welsh countryside.

Ger Y Afon sits on a gated road with off-road parking for four cars, so you will have no trouble getting settled in straight away; leave your boots in the hallway and enter the contemporary kitchen/diner, with smart grey cupboards and wooden floor, and everything you need to rustle up a hot meal for your guests around the dining table for four.

Hiking the Welsh valleys and hills calls for a relaxing evening in the sitting room, where you can start the woodburning stove, watch a film on the Smart TV, or simply listen to the soothing sounds of the running river below.

Sleeping four guests, Ger Y Afon hosts two bright and airy bedrooms looking out onto the surrounding vegetation; unpack your belongings and rest up before your holiday adventures.

The spacious walk-in shower in the elegant, minimal shower room will leave you feeling refreshed, warm and ready for the day.

Have your meal alfresco-style at the outdoor seating on the elevated decking, followed by an evening in the hot tub, or take a picnic down to the lawn and sit by the river in the sunshine.

St. Harmon is a peaceful village just outside Rhayader, a small market town where you can stock up on the essentials, or take a night off and have dinner in one of the village pubs or restaurants.

Resting in the Elan Valley, visitors have access to a variety of walks and cycle routes, with bike hire available in the town, as well as the beautiful Gilfach Nature Reserve for wildlife enthusiasts.

For days out, take a short journey north to Llanidloes, the heart of the medieval ancient kingdom of Arwystli, complete with a medieval arts centre, museum and the fascinating nearby remains of Bryntail Lead Mine.

Llandrindod Wells is an excellent choice for families; hire a paddle boat and explore Llandrindod Lake with a lakeside café, catch the popular Victorian Festival in August, or visit the alpacas in Fronserth Farm.

Ger Y Afon is also a great location for a day by the sea, with Aberystwyth to the west, a thriving seaside town with an arts centre, independent shops, a bustling Victorian promenade, and historical sites such as the town's Grade I listed Edwardian fortress.

With quaint surroundings, welcoming rooms and plenty of quiet spots to sit, Ger Yr Afon Cottage offers guests a pleasant base to discover the wonderful history and scenery of Wales.
