    “We’ve had a wonderful week at Ffos y Ffin.”

    It’s a lovely, characterful, bright and spacious cottage with the advantage of the modern addition of huge picture windows in the large kitchen/dining/living room that make the most of the beautiful views. The surrounding land – moorland, farmland and rolling hills, can be accessed directly from the garden gate, so our car could enjoy a few days off, too.

    It’s a lovely, characterful, bright and spacious cottage with the advantage of the modern addition of huge picture windows in the large kitchen/dining/living room that make the most of the beautiful views. The surrounding land – moorland, farmland and rolling hills, can be accessed directly from the garden gate, so our car could enjoy a few days off, too. We barely used the second living-room (with TV) but it’s an attractive, cosy space and would be very useful for larger groups/families. Handy to have both a downstairs and upstairs bathroom, too. There is plenty of wildlife- birds flocking to the feeders, house martins nesting under the eaves, red kites circling above, bank voles… and lots of plants for pollinators. We’ve stayed in a lot of holiday cottages, and this was one of the best.

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.

About the location

LLANBISTER

Llandrindod Wells 10 miles.

Llanbister is a tiny Welsh village which nestles in the scenic Powys countryside and is ideally located between the market towns of Llandrindod Wells and Newtown, as well as being just a short distance from the English counties of Herefordshire and Shropshire. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, this area is perfect for excellent walking, cycling and birdwatching with the Radnorshire Hills and Forest and the Glyndwr’s Way national walking trail both in easy reach. The pretty village of Abbeycwmhir is 5 miles away and is home to the Cistercian Abbey founded in 1176 and the Happy Union Inn, an old fashioned ale house. Enjoy day trips to the nearby Cambrian Mountains or the spectacular Brecon Beacons. Visit Llandrindod Wells, Rhayader or Builth Wells to find a variety of shops, museums, craft centres, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants. Visit the Red Kite Feeding Station at Rhayader, which offers a fantastic opportunity to see these beautiful birds at close range, take a trip to the peaceful Elan Valley Lakes, the Gilfach Nature Reserve or test your nerve at the Phil Price Rally School or the Underhill Farm Horse Riding School. A perfect base for a family holiday or a romantic break in a truly tranquil location.
