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.

When you’re a dog owner, sniffing out new places to let your dog run free can be a chore. Here you can sit back and relax because the hard work is done – this property for two, plus one dog, is surrounded by acres of countryside, so you and your beloved hound can spend hours happily roaming. Look out on the fields from the romantic bedroom complete with four-poster bed and exposed beams, and when those puppy-dog eyes finally wear you down, throw on your wellies and head out to explore.

Hopping up the two steps to the cottage, your canine companion will undoubtedly be keen to investigate, and the uncluttered open-plan living/dining room is perfect for that. Swing shut half the stable door and let him snuffle around the easy-clean sofas while you stick the kettle on and soak in the sweeping countryside views. The pretty bedroom in the eaves is a real treat, and with an extra seating area, there’s plenty of space for the dog bed too. The enclosed gravel courtyard makes taking breakfast outside with that beautiful countryside backdrop stress-free for everyone. Cyclists will appreciate the bike storage space.

One of the huge benefits of this cottage is the proximity to the countryside – it really is on your doorstep. Discover miles of country trails peppered with delicious hedgerows and muddy puddles or take your bikes down the national cycle routes which begin half a mile from the house. If your dog has more energy than Lassie, pack the water bowl and take on the breathtaking Cambrian Mountains. When you’re ready to refuel, the village of Rhayader, 7 miles away has ample pubs and restaurants, many of which welcome your furry companion too.

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

A really nice, clean and comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring the region, an hour or so from the coast and 10 miles from the wonderful elan valley. Great hosts, allowed us privasy but allways keen to offer local knowledge. Would certainly recommend and visit again.

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.
