Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed · Private Jacuzzi/Hot Tub

This stone cottage rental is located near Knighton, Wales, and can accommodate four guests inside a cozy dwelling that was converted from a former tractor shed into an updated living, sleeping, cooking, and dining space that provides comfort and luxury while retaining its rustic charm, replete with exposed stone walls, brace doors, and a traditionally constructed oak ledge.

It has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. In each of the bedrooms, guests will find two twin-size beds with zip and link mattresses that can be joined together to form a king-size bed, providing them with the versatility to suit couples, friends, and family members alike. Both bedrooms also provide lovely views of the surrounding gardens and countryside.

The bathrooms of the cottage are just as cozy and rustically luxurious as the rest of the cottage. One of them features a spa bathtub, a toilet, and a sink, all surrounded by wood paneling and exposed stone walls. The other features a marble-topped vanity/sink, along with a toilet and a shower. Linens and towels are provided, including luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets and Prince of Wales tartan runners and cushions.

In the sitting room, guests will find a television with Sky TV, a dining table, a cast iron electric stove, and French doors opening to the patio and the enclosed terraced garden. The fully-equipped kitchen comes with an Everhot cooking range, a microwave, a refrigerator, a kettle, and granite countertops. The range is built in a traditional style and operates like an Aga, providing additional warmth to the kitchen while cooking. Other amenities include Wi-Fi, oil-fired central heating, double glazing, brace doors, exposed stone walls, a compliments tray, and tea and coffee making facilities.

Outside, guests will find a terraced garden with a patio, a garden table, and an eco-friendly, wood-fired hot tub that can also be rented for use with prior booking (as it requires four hours and 1,600 litres of water to fill it, and then another four to six hours to fully warm it).

Around the surrounding site, guests will find another well-established garden and paddocks, which are home to free-range chickens, sheep, horses, dogs, and cats. They will also find walking and bridle paths to the surrounding hills and nature preserves, as well as a range of facilities and services for walkers, cyclists, and horseback riders (please see the Facilities and Services sections for more details).

This glamping site is located in the rural village of Felindre in the Powys county of Wales, where it is situated on a 20-acre smallholding that was formerly a 150-acre hill farm.

At the site, guests will find verdant paddocks and a well-established garden, along with free-range chickens, Welsh black mountain sheep, a herd of five horses, two dogs, and two cats who call the site home.

In the immediate area surrounding the site, guests will find a variety of cycling routes and walking paths, such as the five-mile Beguildy Community Trail, the 12-mile Glyndwr's Way circular walk, and the various routes to be explored at Beacon Hill Crown Estate. The latter is a 5,000-acre nature reserve, where guests can enjoy a wide-open landscape covered in heather and filled with wildlife and birds, such as meadow pipits, stonechats, and whinchats. Here, guests will also find excellent tracks for horseback riding, with two bridle paths leading right from the site to the estate.
