The property

Positioned on the main A470 road that makes its way through Newbridge-on-Wye, Old Lion Cottage is a stone-built property in a wonderful location for touring the Brecon Beacons and beautiful Elan Valley.

It is well-suited to couples, a family of four or a few friends looking to explore this lovely part of Wales and the many surrounding attractions on offer.

Feel a warm welcome from the sitting room on return from one of your outtings, turn on the electric woodburner-effect stove and get cosy in front of the TV on a winter's evening.

Rustle up something delicious to eat in the kitchen and get the group together around the table in the dining room, for hearty breakfasts and evening feasts amongst good company.

The ground floor is complete with a utility room, so you are well-prepared should you wish to do any laundry while you are away.

Climb the stairs to find a spacious king-size double bedroom, which has zip/link beds for flexible sleeping arrangements, and another smaller double room.

They are both served by the family bathroom, where you can enjoy a lovely warm soak in the tub on return from one of your walks, or refresh under the shower each morning.

The dining room downstairs leads out to a small courtyard garden to the rear, in which you can soak up a balmy afternoon with a drink and a good book.

Next door is the local pub, The Golden Lion and you also have The New Inn nearby, giving you options of where to grab a pint or a bite to eat.

The whole area is a hive of activity, with the River Wye being popular among fishermen, and the nearby town of Builth Wells hosting many annual shows and events you won't want to miss.

Shropshire Hills AONB is also within easy reach, home to river valleys, rolling farmland and fabulous walking trails, while the Cambrian Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park will also allow you to make the most of the great outdoors.

This is a charming retreat to base your next holiday to Wales.
