  • "Tanyrallt Farm is a lovely, cosy farmhouse with beautiful scenery, we found it very comfortable and clean and it was very well equipped with everything you could need."

    The road running past the farm is quiet and perfect for evening walks for the dog & the Elan Valley is only a short drive away. Water-break-its-neck waterfall is under 1/2 hours drive and well worth a visit with clearly marked woodland trails to follow. The nearby towns of Llandrindod & Builth have a good range of shops & take aways & worth a visit to the local butchers plus the local shop at Beulah is handy. Great mid Wales location for exploring the beauty of Wales & we will miss the tranquillity of Tanyrallt.

  • "The accommodation was really authentic and we enjoyed staying in a welsh farm house."

    We felt welcome from day one, it was like visiting a family home and had everything you needed. The views and surrounding countryside is beautiful and so very peaceful.

  • "We stayed here in the last week of September 2021."

    TLDR is we got what we paid for. This wasn't the most expensive place to stay but perfectly met what we were expecting. Longer version is that the house was lovely and homely. It was warm, clean and had everything we could have wanted. The owner was extremely nice and answered all the questions we had. There isn't a huge amount to do in the area, but we made do. A couple of negatives which stopped us putting 5 instead of 4 stars. 1) the beds were quite uncomfortable 2) we didn't realise this was a working farm and we were kept awake by cows mooing 20ft from our bedroom window on several nights. 3) the main (largest room) whilst very nice, had the main water tank for the house in it. This was unbelievably loud and woke us up every night, several times. Most annoyingly, it woke our 11 month old daughter up. Overall, I would recommend for a relaxing few days away

    The home was always warm, toy corner for children and a quantity of everyday items in the cupboards present in case you had not brought them such as tin foil, under the sink items, and condiments etc. A most welcoming owner. Just loved it, we had a great Christmas.

  • "A gorgeous house in a lovely setting, isolated enough to feel the peace and quiet but just a few moments from the roads to surrounding towns."

    The house is spacious, warm and comfortable, the kitchen is equipped for any occasion and the furniture is comfortable and sturdy. We were on a 3-generation holiday with ages 3-66 and we all loved it! The owners were friendly and responsive when we contacted them. Our only negative is that we had to come home too soon and start all the washing from our adventures (although the really grim stuff was already washed and dried in front of the range overnight!).

  • "The cottage was lovel and quite a bit bigger than expected."

    Lovely location with nice views especially the 'viewing room' at the front of the building which allowed us to sit and relax in the warm whilst being able to look at a lovely view of the countryside. The cottage was well equipped and lacked fo nothing really including a games room with a dart board and pool table! The owners were very helpful and tried their best to sort out anything we asked. Really couldn't ask for more, we will try to visit again as soon as possible but maybe in a couple of years as we are already booked for next year elsewhere.

The property

A detached former farmhouse set in a slightly elevated position with views across the peaceful surrounding countryside, in the parish of Llanafan Fawr, just a short drive from the popular market town of Builth Wells.

This welcoming farmhouse is a perfect base for families and friends seeking days out in the beautiful Mid Wales countryside, yet being close to a selection of rural towns and villages.

Set over two floors, there are four light and airy bedrooms, along with a family bathroom.

The well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen comes with split-level dining area and comfy seating around a welcoming oil-fired range, the perfect place for everyone to gather together whilst delicious family meals are being prepared or why not head to the games room for a game of pool or darts?

Outside, you can sit in the separated lawned garden, accessed through the lane, with views across to the other side of the small valley, and enjoy a morning’s coffee or perhaps an evening picnic whilst the children run off any remaining energy.

The small village of Llanafan Fawr is criss-crossed with footpaths and steeped in history, boasting the oldest pub in Powys and a 2200-year old yew tree.

Just 6 miles away you can join the Wye Valley Walk, an undulating trail through the varied landscapes of the Welsh border countryside.

Being virtually of equal distance, you are ideally placed to explore both the beautiful scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the rolling Shropshire Hills.

The Royal Welsh Showground is just nine miles away, making this a perfect base for groups enjoying the various events held there.

Head north and you’ll quickly drive into the stunning Cambrian Mountains and the popular Elan Valley, with its majestic Victorian Dams and lakes, offering a great day out.

To the south, the pretty ‘Town of Books’ - Hay-on-Wye offers a myriad of bookshops, and of course, its famous literary festival.

A lovely opportunity to stay in a cosy, former farmhouse with elevated views across the surrounding working farmland.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
