  • "We had a lovely week at the cottage, everything was as described and better if anything."

    We loved having a fire every night which made the cottage really cosy as well as having the benefit of underfloor heating. The beds were really comfy and we all slept well. The location of the cottage was great too with lots of nice walks near by and a few small local shops.

    Hi Gemma So glad you enjoyed your stay and found Tan y Ddol cosy! I love the wood burner too! Thanks for your lovely feedback! Property Owner

  • "Lovely village with 3 very close pubs!"

    Fantastic cottage restoration with all mod cons. Mattresses were very comfortable, shower was fantastic and neighbours were very helpful. The only areas for improvement would be instructions for the complicated induction hop and more comfortable sofas. All in all a wonderful few days break.

    Thanks for the lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. There are now instructions in the welcome leaflet about the hob so hopefully that should make life easier! Property Owner

  • "I thought the cottage was beautiful."

    The owner has clearly taken a great deal of time and trouble to create a warm and relaxing space. The property was spotlessly clean on arrival (and I left it spotlessly clean on departure!). My one comment would be that if there were more than two cars one might struggle with parking near to the property although I do know there is parking in a public car park nearby.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments and for leaving the cottage so beautifully tidy! I am glad you had a good stay. I am looking to find a solution for parking in the longer term. Property Owner

  • "Tan-y-ddol is a beautifully renovated (and spotlessly clean) cottage."

    Everything is of a really high standard, including the kitchen appliances, crockery and bedding (and more besides). We had a great week's holiday there, doing the local alpaca trek, visiting the nearby town and castle of Montgomery, and travelling further afield to Bala (where we got the steam train), the beach at Barmouth, and back into England to Shrewsbury. The welcome treats were also very much appreciated. Thank you, Sarah, for making it such a lovely place to have a holiday.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I’m so pleased you had such a lovely break. It gives me great pleasure to feel that you enjoyed Tan y Ddol so much. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic family cottage, all needs catered for and the attention to detail was spot on."

    Very quiet location if that's what your after but I'd recommend a local search of the area if your after something more active.

    Many thanks for your feedback and very pleased you enjoyed Tan y Ddol. There’s much more to do in the spring and summer when there are local activities and events in and around the town including the steam railway, walking with alpacas, Powis Castle. Some of these don’t open fully until February/ March but there are still some lovely walks in the area out of season. Property Owner

    An ideal cottage for some R&R. Sarah, the host even went the extra decorating the place with a Christmas tree and provided little treats.

    The owner really has thought of everything. Not a great deal to do in the village but plenty of lovely walks and other places nearby. And the neighbours are lovely too! We will definitely book again and highly recommend this place if you’re looking for somewhere in this region.

    Thanks so much for your lovely review. We would love to welcome you back. And there’s more going on in the summer too! Property Owner

  • "We were so impressed with this delightful cottage which is set in a very quiet location yet right at the heart of the little town of Llanfair Caereinion."

    We were greeted with a lovely array of local specialities and very quickly settled into this beautiful and clearly recently renovated cottage. The decor is most attractive in muted creams which complement the fantastic kitchen and dining area (with a stunning glass dining table!). The downstairs is open plan whilst upstairs there are 3 beautifully appointed bedrooms with very comfy beds. It was good to have a really nice powerful shower with plenty of hot water in the shower room too. The house was extremely well appointed and very clean. I read among the welcome information that it has been in the owner's family for 150 years and has just been renovated this year. It certainly has a very fresh and modern yet traditional feel to it. The owner had included some nice touches like hanging original watercolours on the walls which a member of her family had painted which I thought was a very nice personal touch. We soon made ourselves at home lighting the doublesided woodburner which made the sitting areas very cosy indeed. We did not use it, as it wasn't the right time of year, but there was a lovely terraced yard at the back which looked likely to be a real suntrap! We enjoyed getting to know the town and also to do some walking the beautiful Montgomeryshire countryside. We did some walks along the Glyndwr Way and also a section of the Severn Way which went along the Montgomery Canal right under stunning Powis Castle. On our first night we ate out in one of the local pubs which was really nice - it was clearly frequented by the locals and everyone was very friendly. We also purchased some fantastic prepared dishes from the local butcher (I have brought quite a few to bring home too!) Unfortunately the Welshpool and Llanfair Railway wasn't functioning this weekend but the line looks very pretty and I saw they were doing Santa specials which I am sure younger children would love. I will definitely be revisiting the area and will be coming back to Tan y ddol.

    Thank you so much for the lovely comments. Being a family home for so long, Tan y Ddol is really special to me so I’m delighted that you enjoyed sharing it. Property Owner

The property

Resting in Llanfair Caereinion, Powys is this charming three-bedroom cottage, Tan Y Ddol.

With open-plan living, close access to amenities and splendidly characterful interior, this is a fantastic base for four guests to explore Mid Wales.

Step into the gorgeous open-plan living space which has been lovingly decorated with farmhouse furnishings and delightful décor; the spacious, well-equipped kitchen area is every chef’s dream with everything you need for a self-catered stay.

Set the table for a feast before snuggling up on the plush seating by the warmth of a woodburning stove; utilise the Smart TV for some light entertainment or, on warmer evenings, experience alfresco dining with use of the outdoor furniture and barbecue.

Upstairs, you’ll find three elegant bedrooms complete with ample storage for all your personal belongings; the airy and spacious shower room is the idyllic spot for relaxing or freshening up before your day begins.

Within the local village, there are plenty of well-stocked shops for picking up essentials, as well as Deri Woods and the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway, a popular tourist spot and exciting ride as it passes a viaduct and river bridge, climbs the notorious Golfa Bank and steams serenely through the beautiful Welsh countryside.

Be sure to pay a visit to the nearby Mid Wales Alpacas Trek and Experience Farm, where you can meet and learn more about the alpacas, embark on a unique experience with alpaca treks through the rural countryside, there is a separate mini trail for the little ones and a meet and greet on offer for those unable to do the full trek, and end your day with a picture of you and your fluffy companion!

Travel further to Welshpool and be impressed by the extraordinary Powys Castle and Gardens or try your hand at Golf at the Welshpool Golf Club; for nature lovers Llyn Coed y Dinas Nature Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife including birds, butterflies, moths, dragonflies, and damselflies.

Further afield, there is the magnificent Lake Vyrnwy, a hidden gem nestled on the edge of The Snowdonia National Park where you can walk, cycle, sail, paddle and birdwatch, ideal for the whole family.

For a memorable getaway to Powys, choose Tan Y Ddol.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


Welshpool 8 miles.

The town of Llanfair Caereinion is built upon the site of an old Roman fort, in the valley of the River Banwy. It is a thriving town built around The Church of St Mary, with a Post Office, two supermarkets, and a selection of three different pubs. The annual Llanfair Caereinion Carnival is very popular with locals, and proceeds through the town with a full parade of floats and dancing troupes, providing a Rio carnival atmosphere. There is a river walk along the banks of the Banwy leading to an Arboretum, containing over 25 different species of British trees, an ideal place to explore before stepping back in time and jumping on the start of the narrow gauge heritage steam railway that runs 8.5 miles west to Welshpool. Welshpool nestles into the upper reaches of the picturesque Severn Valley near the border between Wales and England. This bustling market town is surrounded by rolling hills and glorious unspoilt countryside. There's a unique blend of shops offering arts & crafts, fashion & leisure, fresh produce, and quality pubs and restaurants, as well as the town centre’s restored cock fighting pit and interesting Heritage Trail. Visit the famous 13th Century Powis Castle, and the renowned Dingle Gardens. Enjoy a cruise in the summer sun along the Montgomery Canal or glorious walks and bike rides along National walking trails and the Offa’s Dyke Pathway.
