The property

Rhayader 3.2 miles.

Nestled in St Harmon near Rhayader, Wales is this fantastic, detached, single-storey cottage, Ger Yr Afon Cottage.

With elevated decking and a hot tub overlooking a river at the bottom of the garden, the cottage is an idyllic setting for a romantic getaway or a family trip to explore the Welsh countryside.

Ger Y Afon sits on a gated road with off-road parking for four cars, so you will have no trouble getting settled in straight away; leave your boots in the hallway and enter the contemporary kitchen/diner, with smart grey cupboards and wooden floor, and everything you need to rustle up a hot meal for your guests around the dining table for four.

Hiking the Welsh valleys and hills calls for a relaxing evening in the sitting room, where you can start the woodburning stove, watch a film on the Smart TV, or simply listen to the soothing sounds of the running river below.

Sleeping four guests, Ger Y Afon hosts two bright and airy bedrooms looking out onto the surrounding vegetation; unpack your belongings and rest up before your holiday adventures.

The spacious walk-in shower in the elegant, minimal shower room will leave you feeling refreshed, warm and ready for the day.

Have your meal alfresco-style at the outdoor seating on the elevated decking, followed by an evening in the hot tub, or take a picnic down to the lawn and sit by the river in the sunshine.

With quaint surroundings, welcoming rooms and plenty of quiet spots to sit, Ger Yr Afon Cottage offers guests a pleasant base to discover the wonderful history and scenery of Wales.
