  • "A beautiful large property with lovely views of the hills opposite, the owners were welcoming and helpful."

    We enjoyed walking up the hills opposite, and appreciated our own private outdoor space with comfortable seating and a picnic table. Very well equipped with a washing machine, fantastic shower and bath, puzzles, games and books, very clean and nicely furnished. The only downsides were several small steps between rooms which could catch you out, being located right on a busy road which was a bit noisy, and not being within walking distance of any shops/pubs. We recommend visiting the Elan Valley and also the Lost Arc cafe and arts centre in Rhayader. When the weather is hot - like it was for us! - there is a lovely bathing area in the river a few hundred metres from the cafe. Thank you to the owner for the recommendation of the cafe, which we wouldn’t have found otherwise.

  • "Great location for Royal Welsh show ground, walking, cycling and enjoy restful break away for us in cold, dark November."

    Lovely and cosy with great heating and aga cooker to enjoy farm style cooking. We really enjoyed the stay out of season. A day out in Hereford is not too far and the Elan Valley is spectacular. Lovely hosts.

  • "This was a beautiful cottage in the grounds of the owners house."

    It was extremely well equipped and we were made very welcome by the friendly owners. There was a lovely place to sit outside the back door with views over the countryside. The cottage was very well located and we had a wonderful week doing something different every day as there was so much to explore. We would recommend this cottage to anyone and fully intend to return next year.

  • "No, however, the owners of Carnau were most hospitable and friendly."

    We would go back again just to see them! The produce they gave us from their very pretty and productive garden was excellent and we thank them for their hospitality. Kind regards.

The property

Llandrindod Wells 6.4 miles, Builth Wells 14 miles, Hay-on-Wye 25 miles, Hereford 34 miles.

Tucked away within the stunning Welsh countryside between Llandegley and Penybont, lies Carnau Bach, a stone and oak-framed farmhouse positioned next to the owner’s home.

Boasting a traditional décor with character touches, Carnau Bach welcomes families looking to escape to rural Wales, perfect for exploring The Elan Valley in Rhayader, close to Llandrindod Wells and Builth Wells, the home of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show.

The sitting room makes the perfect spot to spend quality time with loved ones, where you can light up the oil-burning stove and settle down on the sofa in front of the television, tuning into your favourite shows or selecting a DVD to watch.

Take three steps up to the large kitchen/diner, complemented by a fabulous mix of old and new with a fabulous Welsh dresser at one end along with a contemporary centre island, duck egg blue high gloss wall and base units and stone walls.

It is certain to inspire some home cooking!

Follow the hallway to the handy utility room, offering a microwave and washing machine so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe, while there is also a storeroom for boots and walking gear.

As you wind down, climb the attractive wooden staircase to reach the bedrooms, with a king-size on the right and a twin on the left, presented to a lovely standard with oak furnishings and velux windows, providing an idyllic outlook over the surrounding fields.

The upstairs bathroom is accessed via the twin bedroom and is dominated by the fabulous, free-standing roll top bath, perfect for a soothing soak after a day of rambles, but if you would prefer to start the day with a shower, then a spacious walk-in shower can be found just off the utility room downstairs.

Relish in your surroundings from the front garden and take a moment to truly relax, before accessing the scenic trail that leads to Llandegley rocks, just opposite the cottage.

Venture into the friendly town of Llandrindod Wells, home to some beautiful, architectural buildings in ornate styles dating from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, along with an 18th century coaching Inn, a museum, gallery and supermarkets for picking up any essentials.

This part of Mid Wales is a fantastic walking destination and the whole area offers various opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with activities such as wildlife spotting, star gazing or cycling.

You can also go horse riding in nearby Dolau!

The property is well placed to explore the picturesque Cambrian Mountains and the Elan Valley with its Victorian dams and wildlife rich countryside.

Carnau Bach is an attractive base for a family getaway, any time of year.

There is a wide range of entertainment available in the town each year; hosted at The Albert Hall Theatre, Pavilion Mid Wales, which brings Live Music, Comedy and Theatre and Radnor Fringe Festival which is held within the Rock Park.
