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.

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.
