  • “Easy booking process via Sykes online; all went as stated.”


    Pleasant, well presented cottage with lots of space for two in lovely area on working farm (cattle/sheep). Host Riahn and family very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Access to accommodation through farm yard but not a problem - plenty of parking space. Well located for exploring the area. A very peaceful, quiet spot with lovely views. A very short drive or 9/10 minute walk to Penybontfawr village, but no footpath for most of the walk and little grass verge in places. Small but well stocked shop in village. Village pub, The Station Inn, good pub food and very welcoming landlord/lady.

The property

Penybontfawr 0.5 miles.

Situated on the outskirts of the popular walkers’ village of Penybontfawr, in the picturesque Tanat Valley, at the foothills of the Berwyn Mountains in Powys is this welcoming semi-detached cottage.

The cottage offers comfortable upside down living on the edge of the village on the owner’s working farm and enjoys some lovely views from the rear of the property.

There is parking on a private gravel driveway next to the cottage, access is up four external steps and one internal step into the open plan living area, furnished with comfy leather sofas and a Welsh dresser decorated with waterfall frescos, a drop leaf dining table and a practical, fitted kitchen.

Mezzanine stairs lead down to a welcoming double bedroom which offers a modern en-suite bathroom with bath and shower over.

To the side of the cottage is a circular patio area with seating which provides a perfect spot to sit and relax whilst enjoying the delightful country views.

There are walks literally from the doorstep onto the hills and the energetic can hike to the famous Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, with the highest single drop fall in Wales.

The village offers a welcoming pub, as well as a Post Office and shop, and the popular tourist towns of Bala and Oswestry are less than 15 miles away to the east and west.

This is an ideal holiday destination for walkers all year round.
