    “We enjoyed our stay at hillside, in fact this property has bags of room, the beds were comfortable and in general the house was clean.”

    We were disappointed with some of the outdoor areas and feel there is room for improvement. Some of the paving is loose or have big gaps, not ideal for children or the elderly. The patio furniture is in a shocking state, some of the chairs are broken causing one of our guests to fall to the ground when she sat on it. To look at it the chairs look OK but the really are in poor condition. All the gutters were overflowing when it rained and some of the down pipes are not even coupled together. Sad ...

To look at it the chairs look OK but the really are in poor condition. All the gutters were overflowing when it rained and some of the down pipes are not even coupled together. Sad really we felt it just needs a bit of TLC on the maintenance side and new patio furniture to make the say a more enjoyable experience.

Rurally-positioned in Llanbadarn Fynydd near Newtown, Powys, find this superb eight-bedroom holiday home, Hillside Lodge.

Benefitting from a main house with access to an enclosed garden with hot tub, spacious living areas for the whole family, dog-friendly accommodation and a woodburning stove, plus a single-storey annexe, offering some privacy, Hillside Lodge welcomes up to eighteen guests for an escape to Mid Wales.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home ready to kick back and relax in the spacious living/dining room, cosying up in front of the woodburning stove as your other half cooks up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen.

Lay the table, ready to tuck into a feast as the wine is poured and conversation flows, or head out into the enclosed garden to savour an alfresco affair with the rolling Welsh countryside in the distance; treat yourself to a toasty dip in the bubbling hot tub and stargaze the evening away before retreating to the ground-floor bathroom or shower room to wash away the day.

Choose from one of six neatly-presented bedrooms to unwind in before catching your rest ahead of another day of exciting adventures.

The annexe compromises of an open-plan living space, providing all the essentials for a self-catered stay, along with two well-appointed bedrooms, including a double and a bunk room.

Catch some rest before refreshing in the shower room, ahead of enjoying a coffee upon the elevated terrace.

If you can tear yourself away, begin your itinerary in Newtown, home to the Robert Owen Museum, Dolerw Park and Pwll Penarth Nature Reserve, in addition to a handy array of shops and pubs so you can stock up on the self-catering essentials or treat your loved ones to a hearty lunch.

In Llandrindod Wells, visit the National Cycle Museum, delight in some light entertainment at the Pavilion Mid Wales, embark on a scenic stroll around Llandrindod Lake or test out your golf swing at Llandrindod Wells Golf Club.

Take a trip to Rhayader with a good selection of tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and amenities.

The Elan Valley offers a variety of walks and cycle trails as well as a visitor’s centre with café and children's play area.
