    “We just came back from the most perfect and relaxing holiday.”

    Beth is absolutely amazing and such a wonderful host. The cottage has a lovely countryside charm with all the amenities you could wish for, even an air fryer! There is plenty of things to do around such as the waterfall, visit to the lake (short drive) and also Welshpool steam train but we opted for few days of doing nothing but sit outside and watch the sheep graze. It’s absolutely relaxing and a great escape from the busy city! We will be back!

The Retreat

The Retreat consists of a charming cottage and shepherd’s hut nestled in grounds of the owners small holding, immersed in the magnificent scenery of Powys, just a few miles from the amenities of Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant. These quaint abodes are the perfect choice for couples looking to break away from everyday life and experience a private location in North Wales. Whilst the properties differ in terms of style, with The Retreat offering a cottage style with its own living area and cinema room and the Shepherd’s Hut containing just a bedroom and external kitchen/bathroom, they both overlook the beautiful Tanat Valley and provide excellent walking over the Berwyn Mountains. Off-road parking is available for both on the premises and laundry facilities are provided in a separate out building. From the door, there are plenty of fantastic walks onto the surrounding wildflower meadows and hills, or continue to the breath-taking waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr, a 240-foot mountain waterfall, accessed by a scenic woodland footpath. The nearby village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant has a good range of amenities including two pubs, a hotel, a café and a fish and chip shop. The lovely lakes of Vyrnwy and Bala are a little further afield and waiting to be explored. A delightful duo of properties for a Welsh break, whatever time of year.
