This is a really lovely farmhouse in a very peaceful and private location yet only 3 miles from Builth Wells, sheltered on one side by an enormous ancient oak tree and surrounded by miles of woodland and farmland. From the house it is only a five minute walk over the fields to the very pretty tiny parish Church of St. Davids at Llanynis, set beside the River Irfon and where the last Welsh Prince of Wales, Prince Llywelyn reputedly prayed in 1282 before his final battle in nearby Cilmery where he was defeated by the English.
This is a wonderful location for nature lovers with over 350 acres of woodlands and farmland to walk and explore with well cared for bridle ways and footpaths and where Red Kites and Peregrines abound to name just a couple of the resident birds.
The River Irfon also has some really beautiful deep pools for wild swimming and paddling or just to sit beside the river for a picnic and watch the flowing on down to the River Wye.
The River Irfon, within walking distance just across the fields, provides some excellent Trout and Grayling fishing. The Irfon is a major tributary of the River Wye, so with 2 miles of double bank and one mile of single bank private fishing - this is a great location for six fishermen. The Fishing is £20.00 per rod per day - discussed and payable to the owner.
A great place for bringing bikes with quiet lanes to explore or the mountain Bike trails up and around Llanwrtyd Wells, in Cambrian Hills, The Abergwyesyn Valley, Elan Valley with its spectacular Reservoirs and Dams, The Crychan Forest and beyond.
The closest pubs are The Trout at Beulah or The Aberceiros Inn at Llangammach Wells approximately 10 minutes drive from the farmhouse or for a bit of pampering whilst the chaps fish why not book into The Spa at The Lake Hotel at Llangammach Wells or try the little pub called The Red Lion at Llanafan Fawr.

Builth Wells and The Royal Welsh Showground 3.5 miles, Llangammach Wells 4 miles, Llanwrtyd Wells 10 miles, Brecon 16 miles, Hay-on-Wye 15 miles, Rhayadar 15 miles

LocationBuilth Wells

Positioned on the banks of the River Wye, this was originally a popular spa town in Victorian times; today it hosts the Royal Welsh Show which is the largest of its kind in Europe. The showground has numerous events all year round so it’s always worth checking what gardening or livestock shows may be on during your visit, there is also a lovely Christmas Fair.

When in the town, visitors will notice the fascinating Llywelyn Mural on Broad Street, depicting the last days of an ancient Prince of Wales. Sadly today all that remains of Builth Castle are the earthworks however there are nice views out across the town to the river and information boards for those interested in the history of the castle.

The old Assembly Rooms offer small film showings, live music and comedy nights. Groe Park is a nice spot for a walk or picnic, the riverside path forms part of the Wye Valley Walk and the town is also in a great location for picking up either the Northern or Southern section of the National Cycle Route. There are great angling opportunities available locally and pony trekking, the red kite feeding centre at Gigrin farm is also not to be missed.

Mid 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.
