Comfortable Holiday Home, near Brecon (BLACKBR)

This 16th century farmhouse is one of the most sensitively and tastefully restored farmhouses I have come across, yet is still very comfortable and warm. The owners who live next door, have restored the house with great love and attention and a great deal of time devoted to ensuring that the restoration is as true as possible. The ancient beams, flag stone floors, great open fireplace, old renovated radiators and floorboards, stone walls and original oak crooked stairs, windows with shutters and oak doors all add to the experience and make this a fascinating place to stay. With a sunny garden with terrace, a summer house at the top of the garden to catch the views, a sundial, lovely big BBQ, garden furniture and well kept flower beds and lawns; there are lovely views from all the windows over the stream with the little waterfall and across the valley to the forest and hillside. Many walks straight from the door.

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
