  • “The setting for the cottage is stunning and so much wildlife around.”

    The owners Sam and Sylvia were so helpful offering us knowledge of places to visit and local walking routes. They made us feel so welcome, as though we were part of the family. Absolutely loved the homemade apple crumble made by Sylvia. They certainly helped make our stay so enjoyable.

The property

Newbridge-on-Wye 2.3 miles.

Set within peaceful countryside in the heart of Powys, with wildlife ponds on-site and plenty of land to explore, is The Carnau Lodgings.

Traditional in style, with a warm and cosy feel, this hideaway is ideal for families and friends looking to escape to the country.

On return from an adventure on the Brecon Beacons, a stunning region of verdant peaks and rolling hills, you can relax among the company of your loved ones and wrap yourself around the woodburner in the lounge.

Rustle up a steaming hot dinner in the country-style kitchen and gather around the table, chat away the evening over a bottle of wine and catch up on events from the day.

Climb the split-level staircase to the bedrooms, where you will find a light and bright twin with an en-suite shower, basin and WC, ideal for those travelling with kids.

The single room at the other side of the staircase offers an A-framed picture window filled with countryside scenery, while the double has an adjoining bathroom.

To the exterior is an enclosed garden, with plenty of lawn for the kids to run around on and wildlife to explore.

You can join them in the hunt or instead relax on the sheltered patio with a refreshing drink in hand.

The 'Snook' is an external cabin playing host to a sauna and a wet room, perfect for coming in after a long walk through Radnor Forest and indulging in a spot of luxury.

Enjoy a hot soak in the hydro bath or an invigorating shower and later light the barbecue outside for relaxed alfresco dining.

The small village of Newbridge-on-Wye offers a pub and shop, while the thriving market town of Rhayader hosts a selection of tea rooms, restaurants and much more.

Builth Wells is also worth a visit and across the border you have the breath-taking Shropshire Hills within easy driving distance.

There is clay pigeon shooting and fishing nearby the property on a fishing lake, a permit is needed.

Consider a stay at this splendid getaway.
