    “Stuart was absolutely amazing.”

The property

Caersws 3.2 miles.

Nestled in the Welsh countryside in the small village of Aberhafesp in Powys, Wales is the Old Rectory House.

This decadent holiday home boasts luxurious bedrooms, off-road parking for ten cars, a unique cinema room, swimming pool and expansive garden with a hot tub surrounded by the luscious rolling Welsh fields, making this a wonderful setting for a family gathering in the countryside.

Old Rectory House was designed by Thomas Penson, who was born in Wrexham and studied with architect and bridge builder, Thomas Harrison.

During his time as a county surveyor, he remodelled a courtroom and later built eight beautiful churches.

Cross the threshold into the beautifully-presented entrance hall with its grand staircase and head into either of the sitting rooms to unwind on the plush sofas, while the kids entertain themselves in the cinema room.

Gather the family around the large dining table and tuck into the home-cooked meal the designated chef of the group prepared in the fully-equipped contemporary kitchen; cheers to your gathering and cherish the memories you have created.

Venture onto the patio and delight in a soothing soak in the hot tub while the sun sets, providing a truly memorable backdrop.

Retire to any of the eight bedrooms; the ground floor is completed by a super-king and the first floor houses four super-kings, two kings, and a double with a balcony overlooking the grounds.

All of the upstairs rooms are serviced by sleek en-suite bathrooms and shower rooms, ideal for maintaining privacy.

Be sure to get some well-earned rest before another fun-filled day in Wales.

The Old Rectory House lies in a quiet village, perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but is just a short drive from Caersws, home to The Unicorn Bar and Restaurant and The Buck Hotel where you can treat your loved ones to a delicious meal or celebratory drinks.

This wonderful holiday home is ideally located for those looking to explore castles, such as Dolforwyn and Mongomery, which are scattered throughout the countryside.

Be sure to visit the National Trust site of Powis Castle where you can tour the medieval fortress and take leisurely strolls through its expansive gardens.

Keen ramblers can enjoy a scenic drive to Snowdonia National Park where they can traverse a variety of walks and trails, the adventurous may even try and tackle Snowdon Peak where they will be rewarded with breath-taking, panoramic views across North Wales.

The coast is also within reach; head to Aberystwyth to experience its beach and stunning vistas across the Irish Sea from the clifftops.

The Old Rectory is an idyllic base for a large family gathering in Powys, Wales.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 903548, together sleeping up to 30 guests.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £1000.

About the location


Newtown 6 miles.

The village of Caersws is a convenient base for exploring Mid Wales. Situated on the River Severn, the village offers a railway station, church and shop, pubs, butchers and a Post Office. Just six miles away is the market town of Newtown, where you will find a number of shops, pubs, museums and an art gallery. This scenic part of Mid Wales boasts many outdoor activities too, including walking, cycling and fishing along with a nearby clay pigeon shooting centre (of international repute) and a rally centre run by championship rally drivers. If you prefer a spot of history whilst staying in the area, the ruins of the ancient Motte and Bailey castles situated close by in the beautiful old county town of Montgomery, or the ruins of Dolforwyn castle in the hills above the village of Abermule are well worth visiting. Visit the world-famous Powis Castle and Garden, often frequented by Prince Charles, or Aberdovey on the stunning Cardigan Bay coastline, a paradise for watersport enthusiasts, is within an hour’s drive. An excellent place to stay, whatever your interests.
