A stunning 17th Century, Grade II listed farmhouse, nestled in the Radnorshire hills. Just a short drive from the Brecon Beacons National Park and the literary town of Hay-on-Wye.

Nestled in Radnorshire, on the English border, it covers an area of mountainous terrain and highlands including Radnor Forest, with a central valley formed by the River Wye. There are countless walks in Radnorshire and the Brecon Beacons. Hay-on-Wye is just a short drive away, a small market town and community in the historic county of Brecknockshire in Wales, with over twenty bookshops, it is often described as "the town of books”. Llangorse Lake is a little further afield and is the largest natural lake in Mid and South Wales and is situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The River Wye is the finest salmon river south of the border and is also popular for coarse fishing subject to the relevant permits.

Enter the welcoming boot room and wander through to the large family kitchen/diner, flanked by window seats at both ends. It is well-equipped with an electric oven and induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, and a dining table for a relaxed breakfast. There is also a separate WC, particularly handy for guests who would like to avoid stairs. Heading through to the dining room which seats everyone comfortably, with a wood burner effect oil fire at one end in the original 17th Century fireplace and a window seat at the other. After dinner retire with a glass of something chilled and some good conversation. Relax in the lounge with plenty of seating, blankets, and a wood burner to snuggle up in front of, there is a TV, books, games and puzzles with a small selection of toys, great for rainy days. Heading up to the first floor via the 17th Century stairwell, you will reach the master bedroom which offers a super-king-size bed, day bed, spacious wardrobe and armchairs for relaxing. The neighbouring bedroom is soft and welcoming with a king-size bed with en-suite shower room and WC. Take time to relax in the property’s main bathroom with shower over bath, dressing table and WC. Heading up a further flight of stairs to the second floor you will reach the two twin bedrooms in the eaves with two single Jacobean beds in one, and Edwardian beds in the other. In each bedroom there is also a wardrobe, a dressing table and chairs. There is a second lounge at the top of the stairs between the two bedrooms, with a sofa and a few chairs scattered around, ideal for late night splinter groups.

The terrace is an ideal spot for meals, evening drinks, games or a good laze whereas the deck extends from the top garden and overlooks the surrounding hills. There is an adjacent stone terrace for the BBQ and a little hut with a small fridge and sink to facilitate entertaining outdoors. The top garden is planted with a small pond in the middle. There is also a lower courtyard parking area with a flight of stone stairs leading to the house, and one parking spot on the terrace level that is good for unloading.
