Enjoying a peaceful location in the grounds of the owner's house, this charming stone bothy is surrounded by mature gardens, located on the hillside on the edge of the medieval village of Clyro.

Thoughtfully laid out accommodation ensures a relaxing stay for three in this charming studio apartment, happily hosting a couple and their much-loved canine companion. Set tails wagging with days spent sniffing out adventure in the Brecon Beacons National Park, letting Fido lead the way along waymarked pathways and stunning waterside routes. At the end of each day, you'll be happy to head home and put your feet up right here, letting sleeping dogs lie in this characterful space.

Featuring high vaulted ceilings and windows that flood the space with natural light, this studio space is a joy to behold as soon as you arrive. Your four-pawed pal will enjoy having their two beloved masters within close confines, no doubt curling up in a cosy spot as you switch on the Smart TV or enjoy a board game for two. Be sure to cook a little extra when preparing meals in the galley kitchen, slipping your doggo some scraps as you sit down to enjoy a hearty meal inside or out. And, once the evening draws to a close, climb into the cushy double bed and start dreaming of adventures yet to be had.

Boasting a fantastic location in the South Wales countryside, this property is just 2.5 miles from the characterful town of Hay-on-Wye. Take your pooch for a gentle stroll along the River Wye or stop off in one of the many pup-friendly pubs. From here the many wonders of the Brecon Beacons sits waiting to be explored. Let Fido chase wildlife as you explore the ancient woodlands of Pwll-y-Wrach (10 miles) or admire the scenery around Llangorse Lake (14 miles).

very clean, comfortable, well equipped studio apartment next to owners cottage, who are very friendly and helpful. It's quite remote and so a car is essential and eating out would mean driving to Hay on Wye. This wasn't a problem for us as we tended to be out all day and then cook something in the evening. It's lovely and quiet and peaceful with soRead moreme great views. Nice sitting out on the terrace and just above the cottage. Lots of paced nearby so plenty to do. Hide

Excellent well laid out accommodation, adequately furnished and well equipped. Beautiful location with Hay on Wye within a couple of miles stroll. Owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them with a lovely little welcome of biscuits, crisps & milk. Would certainly return.

What a beautiful place to stay. The studio had everything we needed. We loved the space, peacefulness and tranquility of the place. It was a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding beauty, Hay-on-Wye as well as other places a little further away. We were sad to leave. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed staying at the Old Forest House (Studio) for a week and have rebooked again for the same week next year. For us, location was excellent (yes, it is up a long steep road, but not a big deal from our POV). The owners were very pleasant (didn't see them much) and we loved the quiet, the morning bird song, the sun (maybe we were luckyRead more) and a good location for local walks. Hide

A small studio on the owners property in a quiet and beautiful location. You can walk straight into the countryside. Plainly furnished, perhaps rather sparce. It has it's own garden, which is overlooked. We had a relaxing stay - and great weather so were outside most of the time.
