    “Glynn and Eileen explained how the cottage and the gardens around it were going to be improved over the next few months with a better private garden area, seperate parking and a new kitchen.”

    We will try to get back next year as we love the peace and quiet of Waun Cottage, the fresh air and wonderful walks. We also had a multitude of birds feeding right outside the window and red kites swooping around the sky on a couple of days. Would also recommend 'The Triangle Inn' in Rhayader - we had a great birthday lunch in there.

The property

Rhayader 7 miles.

A lovely semi-detached farm cottage, nestled into the hillside of the owner’s family farm, situated on Glyndwr’s Way, gateway to the stunning Elan Valley in Powys.

Surrounded by open countryside, this traditionally-styled cottage is a perfect base for families or friends looking to enjoy walks from the door, stunning views, and being a short drive from a myriad of days out.

Set over two floors, this attractive cottage has two bedrooms with lovely countryside views, together with a family bathroom.

From the well-equipped kitchen with dining area you can relax in the garden which has a seating area, or unwind in the cosy sitting room and marvel at the far-reaching views.

Outside, there is a lovely garden with views up to the surrounding hillside, where you can sit on the veranda to the front of the property and lose time as you soak up the panoramic views, whilst enjoying an early morning coffee.

Perhaps dine alfresco on the patio in the enclosed rear garden after a day spent exploring the fabulous countryside.

From this delightful cottage door there are walks across the countryside and into the local forestry areas.

You are ideally placed to explore the fabulous Elan Valley, with various lakes punctuated with stunning Victorian architectural dams, creating the breathtaking, historic, landscapes of mid Wales.

Gilfach Nature Reserve offers the chance to walk through a variety of habitats with some fabulous wildlife watching.

Alternatively, just while away a few hours in the bustling town of Rhayader in one of its many coffee houses and eateries.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities, such as stargazing, horse riding, cycling, wildlife spotting and walking.

Slightly further afield, explore the imposing National Trust’s Powis Castle.

Alternatively, head to the east and you can explore the undulating countryside of the Shropshire Hills AONB.

An hour’s drive to the west and the wonderful coastline of Cardigan Bay stretches in both directions from Aberystwyth.

This cosy cottage is a perfect base from which to enjoy the fantastic local countryside, nature reserves, and the majestic Victorian dams of the Elan Valley.
