Property code: 81415

Spend your holiday in a quirky, romantic, riverside retreat. This unusual turf-covered roundhouse is in a fabulous setting and you can while away evenings dining alfresco and enjoying the warmth of the fire pit.

You could almost imagine Gandalf waiting to welcome you at this unique escape on a 4-acre smallholding with chickens, wildlife pond, orchard, river and stunning views. It’s located in the valley of an idyllic hamlet near Llanidloes, with an array of activities, cafes, pubs, restaurants, independent shops and galleries. Enjoy fine architecture, cultural heritage and culinary delights in and around the area. Explore the stunning countryside from the doorstep, choose one of the many footpaths and cycle routes through the majestic rolling hills in Mid Wales. Take a trip to Rhayader and the Elan Valley, visit Clywedog Reservoir and the Red Kites Feeding Station or head 20 miles west to coastal Aberystwyth and Borth.

As you walk down to this truly unusual turf-covered roundhouse, you can’t help but stop and take in the view. Step into this cosy lounge/kitchen/sleeping area with underfloor heating, hand-crafted detailing, interesting artworks and all the thoughtful little extras that make a holiday extra special. The bespoke kitchen area has been creatively designed with a two-ring electric hob, microwave oven and fridge. Enjoy a leisurely hot shower to start the day; there is also an eco WC in the shower room. Sample the eggs from the local chickens and freshly-brewed tea for breakfast at the hand-crafted breakfast bar. Take time to relax listening to the radio, utilise the Bluetooth speakers, open the doors to hear the birdsong and babbling river. After a full day out, snuggle up and embrace the view taking in magnificent sunsets. When it’s time for bed, just close the blinds, pull back the duvet on the king-size bed and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

The setting is beautiful with established borders, trees and this cottage overlooks the river too. It’s a lovely spot for morning coffee or dining on the charcoal BBQ in the private garden with fire pit and furniture. The property sits in its own wildflower meadow with a large wildlife pond adjacent to the property. Enjoy fishing at the bottom of the garden in the River Severn, stroll along the famous 'Sabrina' walk by the river and explore the owner's 4-acre smallholding. There is private parking for two cars and bike/canoe storage is available. Homegrown vegetables and eggs are also available from the owners (at an additional charge). Please note this property has a private water supply.
