The property

Rhayader 3.5 miles.

Enjoying a quaint and traditional Welsh style, Ty Mynydd is a lovely detached stone cottage resting on the outskirts of Llanwrthwl, near the market town of Rhayader, in Wales, sitting next door to the owner's art studio.

Offering four guests a homely spot to relax in when not out enjoying the delights of the nearby Elan Valley and pretty Welsh towns, Ty Mynydd is a great choice for a family holiday to Wales.

The contemporary fitted kitchen with pale cream units fits well into the classic cottage style and is home to all you need for a self-catered stay with an electric Range cooker for rustling up some family favourites.

Gather at the dining table in here next to the antique Welsh dresser and light the woodburning stove on a winter's eve to warm you as you tuck in and go over your favourite moments of the day.

The warmth can continue into the sitting room, relax on the sofa, armchair or antique rocking chair and enjoy the TV for a lovely end to the day.

Head upstairs to find three pretty bedrooms, adorned with traditional Welsh blankets, with a choice of two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, served by the vibrant blue painted bathroom with a shower over bath, basin and WC.

The garden is a luscious haven to relax in with a lawned area and a patio surrounded by pretty shrubs, you can take pleasure in alfresco meals at the outdoor furniture in summer time amidst the natural secluded beauty.

Head into the first town on the River Wye, Rhayader, for any amenities you need, with independent shops, local craftspeople and traditional Welsh cuisine served in pubs and restaurants to enjoy.

Explore the beautiful Elan Valley, part of the Cambrian Mountains; it is an unspoilt location boasting dams and reservoirs, which cultivates rich wildlife with the Elan Estate home to foxes, deer, and otters among many, as well as a wealth of nocturnal wildlife with the estate being awarded an International Dark Sky Park Award.

Head to the Red Kite Feeding Centre in Rhayader for an experience like no other to see hundreds of Red Kites flock to feed here, a breath-taking spectacle and with a coffee shop, picnic site and a farm trail you can make a lovely day of it!

Ty Mynydd is within reach of the famous Offa's Dyke Path, which follows the line down the border between Wales and England and is popular with walkers, or head south-west to Abergwesyn to the Devils Staircase forming part of the Abergwesyn Pass in a mix of mountains, steep climbs and wilderness.

Aberystwyth and the Shropshire Hills AONB are around an hour's drive away and present lots more to enjoy.

Spend a peaceful break at Ty Mynydd in the heart of Wales.
