    “We had a fantastic week (March 2024) at Rowan Cottage.”

    The cottage was so cosy, warm and delightful to come home to each day. We loved the thoughtful goodie box with chocolate, wine and biscuits. The facilities exceeded our expectations. A wonderful stay.

The property

Set at the heart of the bustling market town of Builth Wells, a charming settlement in the heart of semi-rural Powys, rests this delightful, stone-built holiday cottage, 40 Market Street.

With an enclosed garden, gorgeous mountain views, and superb positioning to nearby shops, pubs and restaurants, this lovely home welcomes a family of four to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy a relaxing stay in beautiful, mid-Wales.

Step into your new home-from-home, and be charmed by an array of well-appointed living spaces.

A fully-equipped kitchen awaits the designated chef, where they will find all the utensils they'll need to rustle up a tasty, home-cooked meal.

In warmer months, take your culinary delights out into the enclosed rear garden, which features a private patio with bike storage, and steps up to a raised courtyard with furniture, the perfect spot to kick back and relax with your favourite, ice-cold drink in hand.

In the evenings, after you've spent time catching up on the day's events in the sitting room whilst kept warm by the crackling embers of the woodburning stove, retreat to enjoy a long, hot shower on your way to retiring for a well-earned sleep in either of the comfy beds.

When you're ready, head out and explore what your local surroundings have to offer.

A walk into Builth Wells down a cobbled walkway will bring you to The Market Builth Wells and The Market Builth Wells - both locations containing all you'll need to stock up on essentials and souvenirs.

Settle down for a spot of tea at The Cwtch Cafe before you embark on a scenic walk along the tranquil banks of the River Wye.

Once you've worked up a sufficient appetite, head to the The Fountain Inn for a traditional pub dinner, or book a table at Cosy Corner Bistro for cuisine that will please every palate.

For a full day out, the Elan Valley to the north has scenic reservoirs, awesome dams and mountain roads and to the south, Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons National Park) is positively brimming with iconic landmarks that are waiting to be explored.

Whatever you choose to do during your stay in Builth Wells, do it from the cosy base of Rowan Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
