This charming, stone-built, detached 19th century farmhouse is situated in four acres of grounds, in its own valley with views of the Radnorshire Hills, on the edge of the Coed Sarnau Forest, in the hills above, only 2.5 miles' drive or a 1-mile walk from the village of Abbeycwmhir.

This comfortable cottage provides cosy accommodation with a farmhouse style kitchen, which boasts an original Victorian cooking range and bread oven, and a sitting room with warming woodburning stove.

Upstairs, this cottage has three bedrooms, a super-size-king and two doubles with garden and hill views, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement for all parties.

Completing the first floor is the convenient bathroom, where you can enjoy a soothing soak, or prepare for the day in style at the double basin.

This farmhouse has a lovely large lawned garden, perfect for relaxing and dining alfresco on a sunny evening, whilst admiring the red kites and buzzards that can be seen overhead.

Bask in complete peacefulness as you enjoy the glorious views and wildlife.
