Property Description

These two Welsh country cottages were originally built as a barn and cottage in the 17th century. They have been carefully converted, combining their interesting features with comfort, and making good use of pretty cottage-style prints, soft furnishings and some antiques, in keeping with their period character. Each has its own entrance with sloping gardens, and both these charming holiday cottages are tucked away from it all, offering peace, tranquillity and lovely south-facing views across the valley. This is magnificent walking and bird-watching country (many different species spotted in the garden). The nearby Clywedog Lake provides good fishing and sailing, whilst excellent mountain biking facilities can be found a little further afield at Machynlleth.
Five miles away is the pretty market town of Llanidloes with golf, tennis, bowls, swimming, leisure centre and the newly opened Red Kite Centre, which boasts live transmission from nests in the Hafren Forest. The town’s fine architecture includes the town hall, the market hall, built on timber stilts, and two imposing 19th-century chapels. Good selection of pubs and restaurants nearby.
The coast at Cardigan Bay is only 45 minutes by car, a spectacular journey through glorious scenery across the Plynlimon mountains to the university town and lively seaside resort of Aberystwyth with its cliff railways and various cultural and entertainment diversions, or further north along the Dovey estuary to Aberdovey. Here, the coast with its sandy beach offers opportunities for canoeing, windsurfing and swimming, and beautiful walks can be enjoyed amid the nearby Plas Penhelig Gardens. There are miles of sand and shingle beaches to enjoy, backed by dunes along the coast to Tywyn. The slipway at Aberdovey makes it a popular sailing centre, also good for surfing, water-skiing and fishing trips. Golf and horse riding within 5 miles. Shops 1¼ miles, pub ¼ mile.

Living room with inglenook fireplace, original pitch floor and rugs. Farmhouse kitchen with fitted units and door to garden. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Large landing with 4ft bed (for +1). Double bedroom with brass bedstead. Large twin bedroom with extra single bed and en-suite shower room with toilet.
