  • “Beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting which served all out needs, the games room being a particular favourite for our teenage boys.”

    ...

    The cottage provided a secluded peaceful environment to enable you to enjoy the beautiful hilly surrounds yet was only a few minutes drive away from the local towns to help you return to civilisation. We simply adored this cottage, loving the wooden décor to keep the authentic feel yet still having all the mod cons to to fulfil your needs. The welcome food pack was a lovely touch with us particularly enjoying the Lemon cake. Communication was great throughout the process making this a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Will definitely recommend for large families or small groups with the cottage being a suitable size for both.

The property

Rhayader 4.5 miles.

A delightful detached cottage set in open countryside with mountain views from all aspects, in a rural location 4.5 miles from Rhayader.

Created from two separate properties, this picturesque Rhayader cottage stands alone at the end of a single farm track in the most peaceful location.

Full of character, this pretty Rhayader cottage retains many original features including open beams, flagged floors, wooden floorboards throughout the first floor and wonderful open fireplaces.

The lovely large kitchen table with settle seating is perfect for family meals, followed by relaxation in the superb sitting room or the very large games room, specifically adapted from an old barn with vaulted beamed ceiling, a cosy woodburner, comfy seats, a TV and DVD, a pool table, table football and table tennis.

Enjoy alfresco dining in the pretty cottage garden, which has an area large enough to enjoy a friendly game of football, or explore the local countryside with walks from the doorstep.

You may well see Red Kites overhead, along with all the other birdlife around the cottage, but do visit the Red Kite feeding station in nearby Rhayader for an experience never to be forgotten.

The Elan Valley lakes and the many shows and exhibitions at the Royal Welsh Showground offer varied days out for all the family.

A terrific, welcoming Rhayader cottage for all ages.
