  • Reached along a single track lane (1 mile) with passing places the house is backed by woodlands, teeming with wildlife - bats, red kites, herons and buzzards - a walkers and nature lovers paradise .
  • Close to the vibrant market town of Llanidloes with its bistros and individual shops this is a delightful year round base for those seeking to explore the picturesque landscapes, market towns and villages of beautiful mid Wales.


  • At the heart of the ancient medieval kingdom of Arwystli,  Llanidloes is the first town on the River Severn. Today, Arwystli includes many of the most beautiful towns and villages in Mid Wales; -  Llandinam, Trefeglwys, Caersws, Carno, Llangurig and beyond.
  • Wander around this ancient town and explore independent shops selling a wide range of goods  -  vintage clothing, walking boots, toys, old and new books, fair-trade food, furniture and take a break for something to eat and drink - there is a range of  pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and tea rooms to choose from..
  • There is heritage here too - with a recently redeveloped museum, the Old Market Hall has been restored and there is an important and fascinating collection of Welsh Heritage Quilts in the  Minerva Arts Centre.

St Idloes Golf Course, Llanidloes

  • Enjoy a round or two on this nine hole course (visitors very welcome) set in undulating parkland bordered by mature trees -  magnificent views of the Severn Valley and the Radnor hills to the east, the bulk of the Fan Hill to the west and Plynlimmon and the Cambrian Mountains some ten miles away.

 Hafren Forest, Source of the River Severn Trail

  • Walk to the source of the River Severn - or choose from a number of different circular trails along the Severn through towering pine & spruce trees -  buzzards, goshawks and red kites can often be seen overhead. Merlin and sparrowhawks inhabit the edges of the forest and you may catch a blue flash of jays deeper in the woodland. 
  • Numerous streams abound with dippers, frogs, toads and freshwater fish  -  the River Severn and its tributaries are home to the spawning grounds of migratory salmon. Mosses and grasses thrive on the banks of the streams, with tormentil, marsh violets and bog asphodel raising their heads in the summer months - forestry tracks and roads are also excellent terrain for the cyclist
LLyn Clywedog
  • A spectacular reservoir with majestic views sits high above the small town of Llanidloes amongst the Cambrian Mountains -  a  72 metre high dam holds back 50,000 mega litres of water.
