The property

Rhayader 5.3 miles.

Tucked away in the rural setting of Nant-glas, a short drive southeast of Rhayader, lies this charming, one-bedroom holiday cottage, St. Marks School House.

Boasting off-road parking, an enclosed garden safe for dogs, and exquisite views of the surrounding Welsh countryside, this delightful, rustic property sleeps two and is a perfect choice for couples seeking a romantic, self-catered stay in the heart of mid-Wales.

Step into your new lodgings and be greeted by well-presented, tastefully-decorated interiors, complete with high ceilings and tall windows that serve to both heighten the cottage's warm living spaces, and showcase the stunning vistas that encompass your new dwelling.

Set up shop in the fully-fitted kitchen to prepare hearty, home-cooked meals for your partner; savour your meals alfresco in the well-appointed garden whilst your dogs frolic in the summer months or even on the sofa in the sitting room, an idyllic spot to enjoy a film with your loved one as you stay nice and toasty by the woodburning stove.

As day rolls into night, indulge in a long, hot soak in the bath before retiring to the plush king-size double bed to rest and recuperate ahead of a new, fun-filled day.

If you can tear yourself away from your new peaceful lodgings, take time to explore your local area by popping into nearby Rhayader, where you can stock up on essentials at the Co-op Food, stop for a coffee at The Lost ARC, or settle down for some delicious pub grub at the Lamb and Flag Inn-Bar-Grill if you fancy a break from cooking one night.

Further afield, a short drive will bring you to the Valley View Falconry if you'd like a day handling wild birds; the stunning natural landmark of Caban Coch Dam; the serene scenic point of Pen y Garreg Dam, which enjoys superb views of the surrounding waters and woodland; and the tranquil grounds of the Bailey Einon nature reserve.

Perfect for making memories, bring your nearest and dearest for a romantic escape to St. Marks School House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
