The property

A truly unique cottage located in the Welsh hills just short of a mile from Penybontfawr, and close to Oswestry Shrophire.

With an abundance of secret passageways, hidden rooms and outstanding countryside views, The Farmhouse is a charming retreat for large families and groups of friends who wish to spend time together in this fantastic part of Wales.

Centred in the heart of this rustic cottage is the cosy living room where guests can sit back and enjoy a board game in front of the welcoming woodburning stove.

The room features beautiful exposed beams and brickwork which simply add to the rustic charm of this cottage.

This leads to the Library bedroom, a spacious triple bedroom with an en-suite WC, the first of many bedrooms scattered throughout the cottage.

The atmospheric piano room is the perfect place for evening entertainment, with comfortable sofas for the lucky listeners.

Through the double doors the large dining room provides a fantastic space for evening meals.

Guests can relax with a glass of wine at the table and enjoy the warmth from the woodburning stove in the corner.

There is an opening leading to the well-equipped kitchen featuring a traditional AGA and a superb view of the gardens through the unique feature window.

Down a small flight of stairs there is ample storage for walking boots and biking gear in the boot room, also through here is the entrance to the master suite – a double storey bedroom with an en-suite jacuzzi bath and luxurious double bed.

Upstairs, the delightful maze of bedrooms and hidden surprises gives guests plenty of space to find somewhere quiet to read.

Children will love the secret bedroom, accessible through a door concealed by a bookshelf; they can peek through the picture frames as the adults walk by!

Further along the gallery corridor the Baronial bedroom provides another comfortable double bed, with access to the DVD room where children can be entertained and relax on the beanbags.

This room can also be accessed by the staircase in the dining room.

Through the stable door in the dining room guests can head upstairs to the relaxing leisure room.

Here, enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub whilst watching the sun set over the hills or alternatively unwind in the sauna after a busy day outdoors.

The cottage is completed by the Farmhands family bedroom, the East Wing bedroom with en-suite facilities and a large patio area to the front where visitors can enjoy the marvellous views.

The cottage is just 0.8 miles from the village of Penybontfawr and the friendly local pub serving food and drink.

The surrounding area offers a fantastic variety of outdoor pursuits; mountain biking, birdwatching, climbing and white water rafting are just some of the activities nearby.

A brilliant cottage, The Farmhouse can be enjoyed throughout the year.
