  • "The cottage is very small and facilities are basic."

    It was adequate for myself and my little dog, especially as we were out all day at our friend's house. Mrs Bough was very friendly and they have a good range of leaflets of places to visit. It should be made clear that there is no cell phone reception or Internet outside the cottage WiFi. The garden was a lovely spot had the weather been better.

    Thank you for your feedback, the property is as described on the advert and we do try to make it as clear as possible as to the style of the property and we have also included information on the advert that the due to location, WiFi is only suitable for browsing and not for downloading. Mobile reception signal is always dependent on the guest's network in any accommodation and we are sorry if on this occasion your network provider did not have a local mast. This can happen in a rural area although we do hope that the peaceful and serene location makes up for that along with the spectacular views. The property has all the facilities necessary including a microwave, high quality beds and comfortable sofa, for guest enjoyment. Property Owner

  • "Peaceful and relaxing."

    Great views from the property and plenty to do all around if you want to get away from it all. Lorraine and Frank are excellent hosts with a wealth of information. Our Cockerpoo loved it! Standard of cleanliness and general maintenance exceeded our expectations. Will definitely go again.

  • "The parking at the accommodation is there however not outside of the property which can prove difficult with mobility issues."

    Lorraine and Frank are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. The view from oak cottage is incredible. The cottage has everything which you need for your stay. The birds,local wildlife and the girls(hens) are a welcome distraction in a rainy day. There is a beautiful garden with summer house,seating and wooden swing but unfortunately we had little chance to use it during our stay due to the weather.

The property

Nestled in the heart of Powys near the pretty, Welsh town of Llanidloes, is this traditional-style cottage set in a former grinding mill.

Boasting bags of charm and a cosy interior, this wonderful barn conversion is ideal for a couple seeking a country break away from everyday routine.

Set all on ground floor, you climb up four external steps to reach the homely comforts of the open-plan living room, complete with Freeview TV, WiFi and an electric stove.

Curl up on the sofa with your other half and feel the warmth filling the space on a cold wintry evening.

A dining area rests adjacent to the kitchen for you to rustle up a romantic dinner, whilst the well-presented double room is accompanied by bedside tables for unwinding with a good book and a fitted wardrobe to stow away your belongings.

A clean and tidy shower room rests next to this, just up one step from the lounge.

Enjoy the delights of the pretty garden to the rear, which is shared with the other charming properties on the owner's land.

You can sit out on a fresh morning at the bistro set to the front and take in the picturesque views with a cup of coffee.

This elevated position enveloped by the working farm and panoramic landscape scenery, offers walking and cycling right from the doorstep.

Explore the ancient Hafren Forest, the stunning lake of Llyn Clywedog or even Powis Castle with its world famous gardens.

Aberystwyth is within driving distance, as is the popular fishing port of Aberdovey, for more fun-filled days out.

With plenty to see and do in a beautiful location, and a delightful base from which to do so, you won't want to miss a chance to stay at Oak Cottage.

LLANIDLOES

Newtown 13 miles; Llandrindod Wells 29 miles; Aberystwyth 36 miles.

The market town of Llanidloes nestles on the eastern slopes of the Cambrian Mountains, with access to some of the most unspoilt and undiscovered scenery both Wales and the Welsh/Shropshire Borders have to offer. Locally, there are plenty of activities to enjoy, with walking, cycling, riding, fishing, tennis, golf, swimming and shooting all available within 10 miles. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance, are a host of attractions: Powis Castle (National Trust), with its world famous gardens, is just 20 miles away; the Welsh Coast, with its fine beaches, is less than an hour’s drive; Rhayader and the Elan Valley are 40 minutes away; the Shropshire towns of Ludlow and Shrewsbury are within easy reach, as are the popular North Wales destinations of Llangollen and Snowdonia. A picturesque region, ideal for an action packed holiday or a relaxing break.
