    Great information provided by the owners and Sykes on travelling details/directions. Beautiful property, very secure for the dogs, they all loved the garden! Great facilities with the fire place and hot tub, also very well furnished throughout! We really look forward to coming back to Howling point in the future.

The property

Tucked away on the rural outskirts of the charming Powys village of Rhayader, lies the delightful, three-bedroom holiday home of Howling Point.

A single-storey property, with elegant, well-appointed living areas set across the ground-floor, this charming dwelling boasts off-road parking, an enclosed lawned garden with a wood-fired hot tub and gorgeous views overlooking the lush Welsh countryside and mountains, making it an idyllic choice for a family or group of six friends, seeking a refreshing retreat to Mid Wales.

Park up outside your new home-from-home and take a moment to breathe in your tranquil new setting, gazing out upon rolling hillsides.

Inside, discover an array of tastefully-presented living spaces, starting with a fully-equipped kitchen/diner that houses all the appliances you’ll need to prepare a delicious, home-cooked dinner.

Savour your meals together at the dining table in the living/dining room, before you kick back and relax in the sitting area, where a Smart TV invites you and your loved ones to enjoy a movie marathon, all the while kept warm by a woodburning stove set into a rustic brick fireplace.

As day rolls into night, head outside with a glass of your favourite tipple to toast your getaway on the outdoor furniture, or why not indulge with a soak in the wood-fired hot tub, staring up as the starry night begins to appear overhead.

When sleep eventually calls, be sure to refresh with a shower before you finally settle down for a well-earned rest in one of the two king-size bedrooms or a super-king-size, all of which house their own Smart TVs, and offer a space where you can fully relax and unwind ahead of a brand-new day.

If you can tear yourself from your wonderful new lodgings, head out to explore your local area.

A brief drive will bring you into the heart of Rhayader, where you can find several convenience stores selling homely essentials, The Triangle, The Crown and Ty Morgans that serve up traditional pub fare and The Lost ARC café, where you can sit down to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea.

Whilst in town, stop by the former site of Rhayader Castle, embark on a scenic amble along the Waun Capel Wildlife Walk, a serene trail that runs adjacent to the crisp waters of the River Wye.

Gilfach Nature Reserve is just 3 miles away a short drive or scenic walk.

The lane at the end of the drive is part of the Wye Valley walk (some 136miles).

You are a mere 5 miles to the famous heart of Wales Elan Valley with six dams, reservoirs, wooded walks, visitor centre, cycle hire and more.

If you wish to head West, the coast is only a 40minute drive away by either main or scenic mountain road.

Or why not visit the famous Devils Bridge 20miles away?

If you fancy venturing further afield, you’ll find a range of noteworthy attractions within a short drive, including the Valley View Falconry, the Caban Coch Dam and the Gilfach Nature Reserve.

If you want to make a day of it, head south to the magnificent Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, where you can discover the National Showcaves Centre for Wales, the breathtaking Henrhyd Falls, Craig-y-Nos Country Park and the National Trust Pont ar Daf, from where you can begin your ascent to the wonderful peak of Pen Y Fan.

For the ultimate escape to Mid Wales, choose Howling Point.
