Property code: 45386

1 of 2 attractive barn conversion property sleeping two guests, enjoying a quiet rural location in the Mid Wales countryside: a fantastic romantic retreat for couples who enjoy the great outdoors.

This property is ideally situated for guests who are looking to escape all the stresses of daily life and simply enjoy spending time outdoors, enjoying the impressive scenery that this region has to offer. There are miles of country walks and cycle routes to be enjoyed in the surrounding area, including by the reservoirs and dams of the Elan Valley, or for those looking for a bigger challenge, in the breath-taking Cambrian Mountains. As well as many walking routes, there is also a vast choice of cycle routes in the area, but for something a little more thrilling, why not pay a visit to the Yamaha Off-Road Experience, where visitors can learn the basics of off-road motorcycling before heading off on one of the specialist tracks. For a more sedate day trip, the town of Rhayader lies just 6.5 miles from the property, and offers a good range of shops, a market, and choice of eateries. For those in the area for wedding celebrations, this property is within close proximity of many local wedding venues.

Two steps lead up to the front door of this property, opening onto the open-plan lounge/diner. This is the perfect spot for residents to relax and make themselves at home, with its dining table, comfortable sofa, TV, and DVD. The kitchen, meanwhile, is well-equipped with an oven, hob, fridge, and washing machine, perfect for preparing romantic meals. The shower room with its shower and WC can also be found on the ground floor, whilst the bedroom is located upstairs on the first floor: a pretty retreat with a beamed ceiling, double four-poster bed and a restful seating area, which providing a cosy space to curl up and relax with a good book.

Outside, there is a gravelled seating area just outside the property’s front door, offering a pleasant space from which to enjoy the tranquil surroundings and the countryside views, perhaps over pre-dinner drinks,as well as handy bike storage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Comfortable immaculately clean cottage. Warm welcoming hosts. Lots of lovely extra touches on arrival. Ideal romantic getaway for two. Dog friendly although no enclosed garden or dog walk area on site, but open fields with bridalway adjacent to property.

This is a beautiful cottage (one of four) in a wonderful location. The owners are helpful and live in a neighboring property, but allow you complete privacy. They have fitted out and equipped the cottage with a eye for detail and comfort. The location is stunningly beautiful and peaceful and allows you to explore rural Wales.

I would recommend this cottage as it was in a lovely spot in Wales only about 40 minutes to Aberystwyth and quite a few reservoir's . It was very comfortable and clean.

Lovely holiday in mid Wales. Grace was so friendly, and made us feel very welcome. Just up from the main road, but very little traffic noise, and easy access for going out and about. Dog friendly, and dog sitting available ( with a big of notice) if you're going out for the evening. Small toileting area for dogs, and nice walks just 1/2 mile away iRead moren Llangurig by the river. So clean and comfortable, very satisfied customers, and one very happy dog.
