The property

Set on the owners’ 20 acre hillside farm above the village of Felindre, the Tractor Shed has been beautifully converted from a traditional old stone barn and is surrounded by rolling countryside in this unspoilt part of Wales.

This lovely cottage provides a warm welcome from the moment you step through the door with its exposed stone walls, oak doors and immaculately presented accommodation.

A perfect place for families or couples to enjoy a relaxing break together in a peaceful rural setting.

The attractive, well-equipped country-style kitchen with its granite worktops and Everhot traditional cooking range leads into an inner hallway and from there into the lovely bathroom with spa bath, perfect for relaxing after a day spent walking in the surrounding hills.

The comfortable sitting room with its cast iron electric stove provides a welcoming space to relax, plan the next day’s activities or step outside through French doors onto the rear patio to admire the lovely terraced gardens.

Head upstairs and you will find two beautifully-presented bedrooms, both with lovely views across the surrounding countryside and a second bathroom complete with marble topped vanity unit and shower.

The cottage has an attractively landscaped terrace to the rear with a patio and an additional outdoor seating area is to be found to the side of the cottage, giving ample space for enjoying a refreshing drink or eating alfresco whilst admiring the wonderful views across the valley to the hills beyond.

The highlight of this landscaped terraced garden is to be found on a higher terrace level where sits an eco-friendly wood-fired hot tub fashioned from red cedar wood - an indulgent luxury!

Using a locally sourced renewable wood supply, the hot tub is a totally unique experience, where you can listen to the crackling of the fire, whilst you relax and unwind.

Your hosts will prepare the hot tub for you so you can experience it on your first evening and will teach you how to light the fire to bring it up to temperature for the rest of the holiday period.

All you then need to do is to sink into the welcoming warm water and envelop yourself in the rising steam, a wonderful de-stressing experience.

Lovely horse riding trails and walks along Glyndwr's Way, the nearby Kerry Ridgeway or Jack Mytton Way can be enjoyed from the cottage and there is an abundance of walks and cycle routes at Offa's Dyke with fabulous views to be had.

The nearby village of Beguildy has a well-stocked shop, pub and Post Office while the town of Knighton has a large range of amenities on offer.

The thriving towns of Newtown and Welshpool are a short drive away, as is the fascinating historic town of Montgomery, or cross over the border into Shropshire to explore the many market towns and areas of outstanding natural beauty.

A day trip to the Snowdonia National Park in the north, or Brecon Beacons in the south is also possible.

Ideally placed for exploring Mid Wales and Shropshire, this attractive cottage, surrounded by beautiful Welsh countryside yet close to the English border, has all the ingredients for a perfect holiday for friends and family all year round.

About the location

FELINDRE

Beguildy 2 miles; Knucklas 7.3 miles; Knighton 10 miles; Newtown 11 miles.

The small village of Felindre is set in a rural location amidst peaceful countryside between the market towns of Newtown and Knighton on the Wales/England border. With a local pub serving drinks, the village is in a fantastic location for walkers with an abundance of walks and cycle routes over 6000-acres of Crown estate nature reserve providing fantastic views and where red kite can often be spotted and grouse are being re-introduced. Passing the doorstep is the beautiful Glyndwr’s Way; a 135 mile National Trail which travels through open countryside, farmland, along rivers and lakes and through forests tracking the history of Owain Glyndwr visiting many of the sites connected with his ill-fated campaign for an independent Welsh Nation in the early 15th century. The nearby village of Beguildy offers a pub serving good food, a village shop and a Post Office. Some of the best examples of the 8th century frontier earthwork built by King Offa can be seen close by with easy access to the Offa's Dyke; now a National Trail that roughy follows the current border between England and Wales and offering fabulous opportunities for spectacular walking. Further afield, the village of Knucklas boasts an ancient 13th century castle mound and an imposing viaduct built in 1865, complete with an impressive 13-arch span. Set on the Heart of Wales railway line between Shropshire and Swansea, why not leave your car behind and venture further into Wales by train, enjoying beautiful rural scenery along the way? A short drive away is the market town of Knighton, which is a celebrated location for walking, horse riding and cycling with Offa's Dyke passing through the town. Knighton also offers a farmers' market once a month selling local Shropshire and Welsh produce. Visit magnificent Powis Castle with its celebrated gardens, the spectacular Water-Break-Its-Neck waterfall, the Elan Valley dams and the lovely towns of Bishop’s Castle, Leominster and medieval Ludlow, with its famous 13th century castle, ancient buildings and wonderful restaurants. Also visit Llandindrod Wells and Builth Wells, which boasts the Royal Welsh Showground which hosts a variety of events throughout the year. A wonderfully peaceful location for exploring beautiful Mid Wales and Shropshire.
