The property

Tucked into a pristine green hillside gazing out upon beautiful Welsh countryside on the outskirts of Rhayader in Powys, you can find the charming, three-bedroom hut of Otters View.

Plucked straight from the pages of a novel, with a whimsical exterior fronted by large round windows, and a well-appointed interior complete with brick walls and wooden embellishments, along with superb facilities including an outdoor fire pit and hot tub, this wonderful little home is ideal for a family or group of six friends looking for a unique getaway spot in the gorgeous rural setting.

Step into your new home-from-home whereupon you’ll find a tastefully presented living space, featuring a fully-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a sitting area with a plush corner sofa and sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV.

For the ultimate relaxation, head outdoors into the garden where you can indulge with a dip in your private hot tub, soaking in the breathtaking vistas that surround you whilst the starry night begins to appear overhead.

When sleep finally calls, head indoors to refresh with a wash in the fabulous shower room, housing a opulent basin, ring-light mirror, and a generous walk-in shower with marble splashback walls, before you finally hunker down for a much needed slumber in one of the three inviting bedrooms, including a king-size with patio door access to the outside area.

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life by booking a stay at Otters View.
