The property

Llanidloes 3 miles.

A beautifully converted property nestled in an elevated position, surrounded by the owner's working livestock farmland, with views over a sweeping valley across to the breathtaking Llyn Clywedog dam, 3 miles from the pretty market town of Llanidloes.

There are three bedrooms in this charming cottage, including a double with an en-suite.

On the ground floor is a large well-equipped kitchen with breakfast area.

This leads into a striking beamed sitting room with dining area, which has fantastic views across the valley where you can sit, relax and just soak up the scenery, or settle by the attractive woodburner, which heats the cottage during winter, whilst during the summer, solar panels help to reduce the carbon footprint of the cottage.

If you are looking for some quiet time, why not curl up with a good book on the sofa in the large entrance hall, or in the study adjacent to the sitting room?

Outside, you can enjoy amazing sights from the patio and the tranquillity of the valley view.

The area is surrounded by stunning views and walks.

Llyn Clywedog is a lovely 3-mile walk away, stretching for 6 miles and providing a rich habitat for a variety of wildlife.

Alternatively, walk along the River Severn in Hafren Forest or explore the Cambrian Mountains.

You are ideally placed to explore a wonderful variety of countryside; within 30 miles you can be enjoying the beaches of Cardigan Bay, exploring the Snowdonia Mountain Range, visiting the stunning Elan Valley or walking the undulating hills and visiting the historic towns in the Shropshire Hills AONB.

Powis Castle is just 30 miles away, an imposing National Trust property near Welshpool.

This is a perfect property for a celebration or quality time with family and friends, all whilst enjoying a stunning house in a glorious location, close to historic market towns.

The market town of Llanidloes nestles on the eastern slopes of the Cambrian Mountains, with access to some of the most unspoilt and undiscovered scenery both Wales and the Welsh/Shropshire Borders have to offer. Locally, there are plenty of activities to enjoy, with walking, cycling, riding, fishing, tennis, golf, swimming and shooting all available within 10 miles. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance, are a host of attractions: Powis Castle (National Trust), with its world famous gardens, is just 20 miles away; the Welsh Coast, with its fine beaches, is less than an hour’s drive; Rhayader and the Elan Valley are 40 minutes away; the Shropshire towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury are within easy reach, as are the popular North Wales destinations of Llangollen and Snowdonia.
