  • Barn conversion property sleeping four guests
  • Hillside retreat ideal for a quiet, relaxing holiday with stunning views of the Cambrian mountains
  • Enclosed garden with lawn and tranquil seating area, set within 1.5 acres of grounds
Property code: 45387

One of two barn conversion properties sleeping four guests, enjoying a tranquil hillside location in the Mid-Wales countryside, overlooked by the majestic Cambrian mountains, close to the picturesque Elan Valley. The perfect destination for keen cyclists, walkers and those who love to explore.

With views reaching far over the patchwork hills, this property is the perfect retreat from city life for small families and their four-legged pals. It sits in 1.5 acres of enclosed land, shared with the sister property, so you can throw open the doors and really relish the open space. Take your morning coffee outside to a private corner of lawn and watch the grazing sheep while the kids and pooches explore the grounds. And once they’ve nosed into every corner at home, head off across the fields and discover streams, lanes and cycle routes teeming with wildlife.

The cottage has an open-plan layout and a downstairs shower room, so you can spread out but still be together. The kids can curl up on the chesterfield sofas and watch TV with their furry friends at their feet, while you get cracking with dinner – or perhaps just spread the papers out on the dining table and enjoy a glass of wine. Upstairs the double bedroom has a nook under the eaves that’s the perfect spot for a dog bed, while the kids will love watching the countryside through the low-level window in the twin room.

When you’re ready to venture further afield there is plenty to keep you all busy, from visiting one of the six vast dams that bridge the valley such as Craig Goch, 15 miles away, to wandering around the pretty village of Rhayader, 7 miles away. Grab lunch in one of their dog-friendly pubs before going to watch hundreds of Red Kites at the feeding station. Dogs will love snuffling through Bwlch Nant Yr Arian forest, 15 miles away, and everyone will enjoy a burst of sea air at the coastal town of Aberystwyth, 28 miles from the cottage.

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

The cottage was well maintained and very clean which is even more important in view of the pandemic. The weather was extremely wet but as the cottage was a joy to be in this didn't matter so much.

Elan Retreat was a perfect choice for us. The cottage had everything you could need plus more. It was also spotlessly clean and Covid measures had been stringently adhered to. We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a beautiful holiday in mid Wales.

We would highly recommend this cottage. We were warmly welcomed by our hostess and she had provided milk which was great as it was late, wed had a long drive and needed a drink. She took care to show us where everything was and to tell us about places of interest. The beds were very comfortable and the whole place was spotlessly clean and it was spRead moreacious. We had two dogs with us who settled in straightaway and a stair gate was put up which was brilliant. The kitchen was very well equipped . Hide
