    “The cottage is isolated on a steep hill, so it is not to everyone’s liking or ability.”

    We liked the setting and surroundings very much (despite the few sheep that ventured in the garden daily!). The cottage is very well appointed and feels like a home from home. Of course the particulars say no WiFi and it is ideal for disconnecting from the world. But the TV could be connected to the world so that it could receive the national channels at least. As it stands we only could stream a DVD or two from a vast collection of DVDs (very impressive!) and read and played family games. ...

We loved the shower that had hot water on tap thanks to the combi-boiler, a real treat after a day walking and climbing the beautiful hills. One improvement could be to have a welcome pack to explain how some of the appliances work, how the bins are to be collected/stored and a few hints and recommendations about the area (walks, things to do and dining out). But other than that we absolutely loved our stay at Pant y Crwyni and the owner was always at the end of the line if we needed anything. We would definitely come back.

The property

Carno 4 miles, Llanbrynmair 4 miles.

Nestled in the heart of the Mid Wales countryside in Talerddig near Llanbrynmair, surrounded in a secluded position with stunning views, is Pant y Crwyni, a detached cottage dating back to 1768, that comfortably sleeps four.

A perfect blend of traditional features and contemporary style, this cottage is ideal for a small family or couple wanting to explore the Welsh countryside, while also being within easy reach of the coast and Snowdonia National Park.

Approach the property along a steep lane, passing grazing sheep, and park up on the grass, taking the grassy path to the cottage.

Step inside the welcoming sitting room to find wooden beams, a beautiful inglenook fireplace, housing a woodburning stove and two blue velvet sofas you can sink into as you flick on the wall mounted TV (for streaming purposes only) or watch one of the selection of DVDs provided for an evening indoors.

The well-equipped kitchen/diner allows you to prepare and enjoy home-cooked meals together, while the handy washing machine allows you to clean up any muddy clothes after a day of walking through the surrounding countryside.

Head upstairs, where you can view a unique mural of the names of every owner of the cottage since 1768 and discover two spacious bedrooms, both with wooden beams and low windows, looking out onto the countryside, comprising a double and a twin, served by a shower room, where you can start each day with a rejuvenating rinse.

Grab your morning coffee and head into the garden, perching at the picnic table and admiring the 1/4 are of land surrounding the property.

A short drive will bring you to the village of Carno, where you will find a shop for any essentials and a pub, perfect for when you want to take a night off from cooking.

Further afield, the market town of Welshpool offers a wider selection of shops, bars and eateries, as well as a museum and the National Trust-owned Powis Castle and Gardens.

Montgomery rests beside the Wales/England border, offering the remains of an 11th century Norman castle and the Old Bell Museum.

Heading towards the coast, visit Machynlleth, the location of Owain Glyndwr's 'Welsh Parliament' of 1404 and just up the road, towards the magnificent Snowdonia National Park, is the world renowned and innovative Centre for Alternative Technology.

Then head down towards the Welsh coast for a day at Aberystwyth and get your feet wet on the way back at Ynyslas Beach, near Borth.

Choose Pant y Crwyni as the base of your next Mid Wales adventure.

About the location

CARNO

Caersws 5 miles; Llanbrynmair 6 miles; Newtown 11 miles.

Carno is a small village between Caersws and Llanbrynmair in the Mid Wales county of Powys. Carno boasts a local shop and pub and is best known for its connection to Laura Ashley whose first factory was in the village. Nearby Caersws sits on the River Severn and the village offers a railway station, church and shop, pubs, butcher and a Post Office. Just eleven 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.
