    “Ffos-y-Ffin is such a lovely place and was so comfortable for our group of 5.”

    It was a little icy getting up the driveway, but it was doable with care. The cottage itself is more spacious than it looks in pictures, and after we'd worked out how to get all the radiators going properly was very cosy even on a snowy weekend. It really felt like home. The cottage adjoins some beautiful open access moorland and it was wonderful to be able to just walk out across that in any direction. ...

    It was a little icy getting up the driveway, but it was doable with care. The cottage itself is more spacious than it looks in pictures, and after we'd worked out how to get all the radiators going properly was very cosy even on a snowy weekend. It really felt like home. The cottage adjoins some beautiful open access moorland and it was wonderful to be able to just walk out across that in any direction. Our only two complaints: The kitchen could be better stocked - knives (as is often the way with holiday cottages) are so blunt they might as well be spoons. A sharpening stone and some better chopping boards (the ones there are very hard so probably helped blunt the knives) would be very welcome. Also missing a garlic crusher, tin opener is useless and the frying pan has all the non stick peeling off. Could be a few more large pans, too. There were only 5 of us, but the cottage sleeps 7 and you would struggle to cook for 7 with what is there. The brand new wood burner in the kitchen is very pretty but throws out almost no heat, even when your hand is right next to it. Far too small for that room! Nothing that would put us off a return visit though - I'm sure we'll be back (with a few of our own cooking utensils!).

The property

Llanbister 2 miles.

A remote, tranquil hideaway nestled amongst rolling countryside, two miles from Llanbister in Mid Wales.

This detached country house offers spacious accommodation and a perfect base for families or friends to relax, explore the surrounding walking countryside and get back to nature.

Set over two floors, there are four bedrooms, some with fabulous views.

On the ground floor is a large, well-equipped kitchen with views across the spacious garden, edged by the surrounding moorland.

The kitchen boasts a cosy lounge area with seating set around the woodburner, a great place to relax with your feet up after a day of walking.

There’s also a separate sitting room where everyone can gather beside a second woodburner, while outside, you can sit on the patio and relax in the sun.

The mature and wild garden is south-facing offering a fabulous sunny spot all day long, or head off to explore the spacious surroundings that lead straight onto the striking surrounding moorland.

The area offers stunning views and is woven together with countless country footpaths, and with common land surrounding the property, it means you can literally start your walking adventure from the doorstep.

The sleepy village of Llanbister has a small selection of amenities, including The Lion, a friendly local pub that serves good food.

A short drive away is Llandrindod Wells, where you can still take the waters, as made fashionable in Victorian times, and the town still boasts many of the magnificent buildings.

Why not spend the day at the Llandrindod Wells Golf Course, with its elevated position offering fantastic views, or fishing the Llandrindod Lakes?

Just short drives away are the Royal Welsh Showground at Builth Wells and the delightful market town of Rhayader, well worth a visit.

You are ideally placed to explore the rising peaks of the Cambrian Mountains and the Shropshire Hills, with Offa’s Dyke being just a short drive away.

The area has numerous outdoor activities to enjoy nearby such as pony trekking, fishing, golf, cycling and trekking, or why not spend the evening underneath a star-filled sky, as the delightful Elan Valley forms part of an International Dark Sky Park.

A perfect property to enjoy the peace, tranquillity and ever-changing mountain landscapes of Mid Wales with friends and family.
