  • "Lovely holiday in the beautiful hills."

    Spotlessly clean and large house. Host Margaret was ever so lovely and welcoming as so was the rest of the family as we bumped into them around the land.

  • "Cefn is a little remote but this means very quiet with only the distant sheep and cattle providing the background noise."

    It is very roomy, well furnished and convenient with Mrs Bound being a super host.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday and the owner Margaret Bound is a lovely person who was extremely friendly and helpful, the vistas around so beautiful."

    Cefn Cottage was warm and very comfortable with all amenities required. Wi fi was rather hit and miss but could be found in certain areas around the cottage. Because the cottage sits at the top of a hill, thus the access lanes (one tarmacadam the other bumpy and stony) are very narrow, winding and hilly. Many thanks Margaret for a super holiday.

Llanidloes 3 miles.

A semi-detached cottage occupying one half of a converted farmhouse, nestled in an elevated position on the owners' working hill farm, surrounded by their working livestock farmland and buildings, high above the rural hamlet of Tylwch, four miles from the historic market town of Llanidloes.

With sweeping views across the breathtaking Tylwch Valley, Cefn Cottage has been tastefully decorated and is well-presented and furnished to a good standard offering comfortable holiday accommodation for a family, couples or friends who wish to experience authentic country life at a true rural retreat.

On the ground floor you’ll find a welcoming entrance hallway with rooms leading off.

There is a lovely country farmhouse style kitchen, well-equipped with a comfy dining area, and off the kitchen is a cosy sitting room with a warming woodburning stove set in an attractive feature fireplace.

Also on the ground floor is a family bathroom with a bath and separate shower, as well as one double bedroom benefiting from an en-suite shower room, and a twin bedroom.

Upstairs, is the main sitting room which is spacious with comfy seating for all the family, a lovely electric woodburner-effect stove, wonderful views down the valley and a patio door leading out to a balcony with furniture, a perfect place to sit and relax, wind down and enjoy the country air with a glass of your favourite tipple!

A double bedroom is situated off the first floor sitting room which also enjoys wonderful views and benefits from an en-suite shower room.

Outside, you can also enjoy the garden area with seating and barbecue, and the area is surrounded by stunning views and walks.

Nearby Llanidloes is a charming town with timber-framed buildings and a fine selection of shops, cafés and pubs.

Discover the source of the River Severn by following the Severn Way, explore the fabulous Hafren Forest, or take a short drive over to Llyn Clywedog, a stunning lake stretching for six miles and providing a wonderful place for wildlife lovers to visit, with a wide selection of walks and cycle paths too.
