Here, in our four individual cottages in the three acres of gardens and mixed woodlands of a Victorian Hunting Lodge you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the peace & quiet of undisturbed nature. Our accommodation ranges from a cosy cottage for two to more spacious living for three, four, five or more. Combinations of cottages can be used for families or groups of up to fifteen who wish to spend time together in comfortable surroundings and nevertheless retain a high standard of comfort and privacy.
Each of our cottages are light and airy with south facing stone terraces and wondeful views down the Irfon Valley. Here you can sit and watch the Red Kites, Buzzards and Hawks patrolling the skies. The cottages are warm and well equipped and our prices include heating, lighting, bed linen and towels. There is a separate utility and laundry room with a tumble dryer and washing machines. There is also a sauna available to guests on an hourly or sessional basis.
Beyond the shrubs and flowers of the formal garden are acres of ancient oak and other native trees. The garden is framed on one side by the distant backdrop of the Irfon Valley and on the other a network of small paths leads through the garden and up into the woods. Some of the paths are cut into the rock itself and provide spectacular views down the valley. An exciting place to explore for both young and old. The woods are home to many birds and animals including greater and Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Owls, Nuthatches, Siskins, squirrels and – if you are lucky a field mouse or a badger.
Just below Cwm Irfon is the river Irfon after which it is named. The use of the cottages includes discounted access to fishing in the River Irfon. The River Irfon winds its way down the wooded valley directly below your cottages cutting many large and small pools into the slate rock. One of these, the 'Washpool' is only a few hundred metres away and provides (on warm days!) a natural swimming pool surrounded by mountains and forests.
Our nearest town is Llanwrtyd Wells, it is three miles down the valley along the River Irfon. Here there are a diverse range of facilities including restaurants, real pubs, an excellent Tourist Information Centre and shops providing all of the basic necessities.
2 Bedrooms, 1 double and 1 single sleeps 2 (3 only by arrangement).
Kite Cottage adjoins Nuthatch cottage and is our smallest, it has two bedrooms, a bathroom with bath/shower and a cosy sitting and dining room with a small kitchen.
Kite Cottage has a south facing stone terrace with steps leading down to the formal gardens and a beautiful view of the ever changing face of the valley.
