  • “The cottage location is spectacular and the facilities provided for dogs is very good.”

    However, the cottage could do with some improvements:

    However, the cottage could do with some improvements: The furniture is not very comfortable. The blinds on the upstairs windows are basic. The single and the twin bedrooms have no hanging storage space and the double bedroom has not got any bedside units or bedside lights. The bathroom fittings are dated. Having looked at the website when considering booking again for next year, we have decided that increasing the price by 50% would not be good value for money.

The property

Resting in an area steeped with plentiful waterfalls and mountains, between the villages of Caersws and Llanbrynmair, is the endearing, stone-built cottage, Isfryn.

Perched with charming countryside views, within an area offering a vast array of things to do, Isfryn is a superb base for a family looking to explore this area of North Wales.

Offering a real home from home retreat, this cottage comes with a brightly decorated interior with a blend of character features to ensure a memorable stay with your loved ones.

After kicking off your muddy shoes, be welcomed into the heart of the home, where the designated chef will be delighted to prepare evening meals before unwinding within the sitting room, where a roaring woodburning fire will keep you toasty and warm during the chilly winter evenings.

If you are looking for some tranquillity, venture to the first-floor snug room, offering a superb spot for quiet reading or to simply enjoying the countryside views.

After a long day’s walk, indulge with a warming soak within the stylish bathroom before drifting off to a refreshing sleep within one of the three well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a ground-floor twin bedroom, a single bedroom and a double bedroom.

During the warmer months, throw open the door to discover a wonderful enclosed garden area, where you can enjoy your morning coffee with the soundtrack of the farm animals to keep you company.

Outside, you will also find a spacious lawn area, perfect for letting the dogs stretch their legs and a play area, which younger guests will be delighted with, whilst adults unwind and relax.

The welcoming village of Carno rests within 1 mile of the property, where you will find a traditional pub and a local shop, ideal for picking up any holiday treats.

For outdoor enthusiasts, this Mid Wales spot is ideal, as the surrounding area offers superb walking and cycling routes, with wonderful walks including the picturesque Pistyll Rhaeadr.

Brush up on the local history by visiting the popular National Trust property of Powis Castle and Garden, which is an outstanding fortified stately home with a breath-taking garden to explore.

Isfryn promises a wonderful escape throughout the year.

About the location


Caersws 5 miles; Llanbrynmair 6 miles; Newtown 11 miles.

Carno is a small village between Caersws and Llanbrynmair in the Mid Wales county of Powys. Carno boasts a local shop and pub and is best known for its connection to Laura Ashley whose first factory was in the village. Nearby Caersws sits on the River Severn and the village offers a railway station, church and shop, pubs, butcher and a Post Office. Just eleven miles away is the market town of Newtown, where you will find a number of shops, pubs, museums and an art gallery. This scenic part of Mid Wales boasts many outdoor activities too, including walking, cycling and fishing along with a nearby clay pigeon shooting centre (of international repute) and a rally centre run by championship rally drivers. If you prefer a spot of history whilst staying in the area, the ruins of the ancient Motte and Bailey castles situated close by in the beautiful old county town of Montgomery, or the ruins of Dolforwyn Castle in the hills above the village of Abermule are well worth visiting. Visit the world-famous Powis Castle and Garden, often frequented by Prince Charles, or Aberdovey on the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline, a paradise for watersport enthusiasts, is within an hour’s drive. An excellent place to stay, whatever your interests.
