    “Cottage is good .”

    .. very comfortable, good shower & bath, nice garden and summerhouse, useful garage for bikes, etc. Well equipped though my wife cannot get on with the Rayburn, too slow and not controllable enough. The microwave and George Foreman grill more than compensated for this. Didn't want the TV much but it had Netflix and Amazon Prime (not Sky as mentioned in the instructions).

    .. very comfortable, good shower & bath, nice garden and summerhouse, useful garage for bikes, etc. Well equipped though my wife cannot get on with the Rayburn, too slow and not controllable enough. The microwave and George Foreman grill more than compensated for this. Didn't want the TV much but it had Netflix and Amazon Prime (not Sky as mentioned in the instructions). The internet was okay much of the time for emails and general use but it did fluctuate, particularly in the evenings when the speed could drop below 1 mbps which took Netflix and Amazon Prime 'off the menu'. We were fortunate with the weather so plenty of long walks and cycle rides.

The property

A picturesque cottage situated down in the Elan Valley among the magical Welsh scenery.

Providing a wonderful homely aura, this cottage is fantastic for friends looking for a refreshing break, or even couples looking for a walking getaway.

Stepping into the cottage and passing through the welcome hallway, you will be greeted by a homely living area with a large woodburner to make sure that this is a home-away-from-home for you and your company.

The dining room is separated from the living room by long wooden beams, that showcase the traditional design of this admirable property.

Also located on the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen where you can cook a lovely meal after a day out exploring.

Upstairs you will find two spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom having a super king-size bed and the second room having a double bed.

Throughout all of the windows you have picture-perfect views looking towards the mountain ranges that flood Wales, helping make the break as tranquil as possible.

The enclosed garden has been designed excellently with detailed features that show how much effort has been put into this home.

Towards the back of the garden lies a garden room with beautiful views looking at mountains fading into the horizon.

If you're looking for something to do, the cottage runs adjacent to stables where you can go on pony trekking from May through to September.

Alternatively, the local bustling market town of Rhayader is one mile away where you can sit and enjoy its restaurants and cafés or for those feeling active, venture just 150 yards to the Elan and Claerwen Valley, where you will find miles of walking routes amid breath-taking scenery, as well as cycling in the Elan Valley.

If you fancy a complete change of scene, less than an hour’s drive away you can visit the Victorian seaside resort of Aberystwyth on the West Wales coast or take a day trip further north to the National Trust property of Powis Castle, a medieval castle, providing a dramatic backdrop for its celebrated gardens.

Penlone Cottage provides an exceptional base for friends or families looking to explore this rural part of mid-Wales.

Rhayader is a small Welsh market town with a selection of tea rooms, pubs, restaurants, amenities and unique little boutiques, including local antiques. An added bonus of a leisure centre with a large swimming pool and a weekly livestock market. The Red Kite Feeding Station, on the outskirts of the town is a great attraction not to be missed. Rhayader is the first town on the River Wye and is home to the spectacular dams and reservoirs of the Elan and Claerwen Valleys. The Elan Valley offers a variety of walks and cycle trails (cycle hire is available in Rhayader), as well as a visitor’s centre with café and children's play area. This area is known as the Wildlife Centre of Wales, with its amazing variety of nature reserves open for visitors to enjoy. There is also pony trekking available in the area. Visit Builth Wells, where the Spring Festival, Royal Welsh Agricultural Show and Winter Fair are all held annually. Alternatively, a scenic drive will take you to the Welsh coast 34 miles away.
