    “I can’t wait to come back!!!”
    My partner and I wanted to do something special for my 21st birthday. We couldn’t afford to go abroad, so we spent our first holiday together, and my birthday at the cwtch! And it was absolutely amazing, I think I’d rather stay here than go abroad anyways! ...
    My partner and I wanted to do something special for my 21st birthday. We couldn’t afford to go abroad, so we spent our first holiday together, and my birthday at the cwtch! And it was absolutely amazing, I think I’d rather stay here than go abroad anyways! Getting there was a slight struggle. The satnav took us close, but there were a few cottages around and with no sign posting and no phone signal, we were driving around for over half an hour looking for the right one haha! But when we got there it was beautiful. Immaculate! The cottage is exactly as it shows in the pictures right down to the throws and cushions! It was simply beautiful. It was so quiet and peaceful! We spent our evenings in the hot tub, for hours at a time (which I know isn’t recommended), with bottles of wine, talking until the night sky was moon lit. We spend our days going on adventures! We went down into Llandrindod Wells, there’s a cute gift shop that we got some presents in, and a wooden decoration reading ‘cwtch’, which is currently on my bedroom wall right now! We did lots. They have a beautiful chip shop, and we had a wonderful Chinese on my actual birth day and brought it back to the lodge as it’s only a 20 min drive once you know the way! The landlord, we only saw them on arrive, and they were lovely, very welcoming and polite. We were worried we’d have no privacy as their cottage is right next to the one we stayed in, but we didn’t see them at all after that! The house rules were fair. Maybe not what you’d expect on holiday, as you’ve really got to leave the place as you found it, ensuing the floors are clean, bed is stripped, you know you’ve got to clean it so it’s ready for the next person to come and stay. You must also separate all your rubbish into the glass, plastic and cardboard bins. We didn’t mind any of this because I’m a cleaning fanatic and we recycle at home anyways! But others may find it a bit of a chore haha! Overall, I’d give the cwtch a 5/5 if your looking for a real relax. No phone signal. They do have WiFi, but to be perfectly honest, it doesn’t work. It’s nice to enjoy your partners company without a phone for a holiday though, and that’s coming from a 21 year old phone addict haha! The only entertainment is a walk and if your happy to drive and explore, Llandrindod Wells town, which is just like a little town with a few shops! They have pages of things to do and places to eat in their welcome pack when you get there anyways! So we were extremely happy with our stay, and I will definetly be returning! Thankyou very much!

The property

Llanbister 2 miles.

A pretty little converted barn, adjacent to the owners’ bed and breakfast, on their working livestock farm, with sweeping views over undulating gardens across to sweeping moorland, less than two miles from the small village of Llanbister, and within reach of Llandrindod Wells.

This superb cottage is a perfect base for couples looking to relax in beautifully diverse countryside, with a selection of walks from the door, along with the opportunity to explore 150 acres of farmland and three wildlife ponds, as well as nearby towns and villages.

Set predominantly on one floor, this delightful cottage has a mezzanine zip/link super king-size double bedroom with balcony on the first floor.

Downstairs, there's a spacious shower room and a compact kitchen, which opens out into a striking galleried sitting area with feature fireplace, cosy woodburning stove and garden views.

Outside, you can sit in your own private decked garden with a feeling of seclusion, whilst relaxing in the warmth of the hot tub after a day’s exploring, from where views across moorland can be seen.

This lovely holiday home is situated just two miles from the popular village of Llanbister and being on the edge of moorland, this is a perfect location to enjoy long walks from the door.

This wonderful cottage is also an ideal base for other outdoor facilities, such as golf, cycling and horse riding.

You are ideally placed to visit the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells, or alternatively explore the Shropshire Hills, which are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and stretch from the popular market town of Knighton.

Slightly further afield, why not explore the Elan Valley with its majestic Victorian Dam, just twenty miles away, or visit the nearby towns of Rhayader and Builth Wells?
