    “Soul Breaker!”

    Well where shall I start! Ok if you would like to self isolate for a week, with no shops, pubs or any life within 5 miles, if you like an amazing country sides, forest, river, lake walks, if you like very dark nights with no signs of life except the farm animals, if you like to read a book by the cosy fire, and cook an amazing dinner, if you like the farm life which include 13 dogs, horses, sheep, goat, pigs, chickens etc..., if you like mud and get your car dirty, if you like the unpredictable ...

    Well where shall I start! Ok if you would like to self isolate for a week, with no shops, pubs or any life within 5 miles, if you like an amazing country sides, forest, river, lake walks, if you like very dark nights with no signs of life except the farm animals, if you like to read a book by the cosy fire, and cook an amazing dinner, if you like the farm life which include 13 dogs, horses, sheep, goat, pigs, chickens etc..., if you like mud and get your car dirty, if you like the unpredictable weather, if you like wearing wallis boots and nothing else, if you like not to rely on the live TV reception and mobile signals (Internet ok but not for steaming), anyway if you like all of this and more, this is the PERFECT cottage for you. God what a fabulous week, we are feeling now SO relaxed. We will be back. The host is amazing and so helpful. Try to visit the Elan Valley amazing. Word of advice, plan your food ahead, and don't go shopping. No freezer, and fridge very small but use your imagination. Good oven, stove, microwave and kitchen equipment. £5 per basket of wood for the fire, but the central heating is very good. Low celling so mind your head. Highly recommended for a total relaxation and soul fixer. It is extremely difficult to find the property, and Sat Nav don't work there, the postcode takes you at least 3 minutes away from the actual property. Plus within How to get there description you mention a red telephone box, it isn't it is a small red post box. And another thing is that the host needs to be contacted 2 days ahead, to fix a time of arrival, which we didn't know.

The property

Nant Gwyn is a lovely, stone-built barn conversation, with lots of quaint and quirky charm, situated on the owners’ smallholding in a rural location, within driving distance of the pretty Powys village of Newbridge-on-Wye.

This lovely cottage is surrounded by rolling countryside, yet within driving distance of bustling market towns and rural villages, ideal for a couple or small family in need of an away-from-it-all retreat.

Upon arrival, you’re sure to receive a warm welcome from the variety of animals living on the land, including horses, pigs, sheep, turkeys, chickens, horses and dogs.

Once inside the property you can feel the stresses and pressures of modern life melt away as you step back in time into a world of low ceilings, stone walls and characterful low beams.

Downstairs there’s a rustic open plan living area with a kitchen and dining area, leading through into the sitting area with a warming woodburning stove.

There’s also a cosy double bedroom benefitting from an en-suite wet room.

Upstairs you’ll find a special little crog loft with twin beds and a sitting area, an ideal hideout for the children.

Outside, you can sit in the enclosed patio garden, with splendid views across the fields, to the rolling green hills beyond, the perfect place to enjoy a family barbecue and relax after a day adventuring.

The River Wye meanders through the valley, which opens up fantastic walking, fishing and canoeing opportunities, whilst the Cambrian Mountain uplands offer the chance to pony trek with loved ones, whilst marvelling at the majestic red kites as they soar through the sky.

There are also some fabulous towns and villages just a short drive away, including the splendid villages of Rhayader and Llandrindod Wells, a former Victorian Spa town, hugely popular with cyclists and offering pretty parks to relax in and an interesting Victorian festival.

For an excellent day out, pack a picnic, jump in the car and head for the Brecon Beacons National Park, a breathtaking natural space within which the children’s imaginations can run wild whilst you appreciate the stunning beauty of the rugged peaks and sloping valleys.

No matter what it is you decide to do on your holiday, this cosy, traditional and rustic cottage is ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway or a small family in need of a holiday to remember.
