The property

The Owl House has been marvellously converted to provide spacious and tasteful accommodation within the wondrous countryside of Powys, Mid Wales.

Close to the charming town of Llanfyllin, the popular Lake Vyrnwy and the Snowdonia National Park, this is a high-quality base for large groups of friends and family to escape and get away from it all.

Enter this tremendous, stone-built holiday home and be welcomed by the vibrant and characterful kitchen/diner, dotted with rustic wooden beams and exposed stonework which contrast beautifully with the colourful, modern kitchen appliances.

The dining area enjoys views across the acres of grounds that come with the property.

From here, step up a spiral staircase to a self-contained first floor area where you will find the heart-warming and social sitting room, the traditional exposed beams and sizeable corner leather sofa make this an ideal spot to put your feet up after an exhausting day of exploration.

Heading back down to the ground floor will present you with three wonderfully decorated bedrooms, the double bunk room is ideal for four children to stay together, while the two super king-size rooms boast flexible zip/link beds, one of which comes with the added luxury of a stunning en-suite shower room.

A family shower room also resides on this immaculate floor.

A wooden staircase leads to the first floor revealing two further bedrooms dressed in an equally fabulous manner, up here you will also find a peaceful snug area with a range of books to keep you occupied.

Acres of serene grounds surround The Owl House, with an excellent decking and a gravelled seating area enjoying idyllic views of the undulating countryside that encompasses the property.

This first-rate countryside retreat sits equidistant from the lovely town of Llanfyllin which offers a small selection of useful amenities, and the remarkable Lake Vyrnwy which offers much to do for those thrill seekers to enjoy.

The wondrous Snowdonia National Park lies slightly further afield for those of you who appreciate breath-taking landscapes and a wealth of outdoor activities.

26 Miles away is the Pontcysyllte Viaduct, this world heritage site carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee, dating back to 1805 the steel and stone structure is a magnificent sight to behold.

Experience the marvels of rural Wales from this beautifully restored farm building.

    “Perfect from start to finish!”

    Celebrating my mums 60th in style. ...

    Celebrating my mums 60th in style. The interior throughout was done beautifully and all rooms were spotless not dirt in sight. The beds in all the rooms were very comfy and spacious, which was much appricatied after a day walking in the hills. The owl house is well laid out meaning family can be all together but there is also plenty of room to have a moment of peace (when theres 6 children running around). We loved the extra touches including the built in baby gates at the top and the bottom of the stairs and all the crockery and appliances in the kitchen, the binoculars for some bird watching and the books in the snug. We also found the sensor lights extremly handy in the night for the children. The heart of the building for us was the dining room where a stunning dining table and chairs was the perfect spot to take in the incredible view, it took my breath away every morning. The children loved feeding the horse and putting the ducks to bed and the bunk room which was perfect for 4 children with a handy night light. the tree house was also an added bonus which the children and adults enjoyed. We cannot thank Sue enough for her warm, welcoming hospitality. We cannot wait to visit again next year for my birthday. See you soon x
