Find cottages in Powys

Powys is a tranquil and peaceful county situated in Mid Wales. The county is mostly made up of smaller towns and villages and has plenty of rural space for the ultimate quiet getaway.

Though Powys is a quiet and relaxing place to spend a holiday, this doesn''t mean there is a lack of things to do while you''re there. It is the largest county in Wales, hosting plenty of attractions. For example, there are a number of cave systems located in Powys, including some of the most extensive in Wales. Various tours allow you to explore these caves for yourself and to see the unique and awe-inspiring beauty of these natural formations.

If you have an interest in history, you will have no trouble filling the time while holidaying in Powys. The area now covered by Powys includes five historic counties, giving it a varied past which today has given birth to plenty of heritage sites and other attractions. For instance, there are six castles within Powys''s borders. These range from Aberedw Castle, which lies in ruins, to Powis Castle, which still stands as a grand and imposing country manor. The county also has a number of museums, including Brecknock Museum, which hosts artefacts dating back as far as the Stone Age and occupies a Grade II listed building.

Nonetheless, the quiet rural beauty of Powys is one of the biggest draws, and this itself provides visitors with plenty to do. In most parts of the county the scenic walks are absolutely delightful. There are several wonderful set walks and trails in the county which provide excellent views of local scenery and of nature.

For those looking to take in the beauty of nature but wanting something more spectacular, the breathtaking lakes and waterfalls make for ideal sightseeing. A number of scenic lakes can be found in Powys. The amazing waterfalls, meanwhile, include the mighty Pistyll y Llyn, which is one of the highest in Wales.

    Nestled among lush countryside in an idyllic location, Glan Wye is a homely barn conversion offering an ideal base to explore the delights on offer in the surrounding area. Rhayader lies in the very heart of Wales, situated 700ft above sea level in the beautiful Upper Wye Valley, and is sheltered by the Cambrian Mountains and cupped by hills rising to over 1500ft. Rhyader is also the first town of the River Wye, and the river is renowned as being the canoeing capital of Europe. Water has always played an important role in the town, and today it is known for the spectacular beauty of the flooded Elan Valley, where Victorian engineers created a series of magnificent dams and reservoirs as a water supply for the city of Birmingham, some 70 miles away. It’s truly a walker’s haven with The Wye Valley Trail running alongside the property and splendid cycling opportunities are available. The area is home to the majestic red kite, and with a bird feeding station within walking distance, it can be a popular sight. Guests are welcome to roam the owner’s 270-acre farm. Excellent fishing, riding and golfing can all be found locally. Today, the population of the local villages and countryside surrounding Rhayader is only a fraction of what it used to be a couple of hundred years ago, but the village communities are still very strong, with a variety of rural shows and events throughout the year. The larger spa town of Llandrindodd Wells is within an easy drive. Shops ½ mile.

    Ref: UK6063
    Llaethdy - Milkhouse was once the old dairy in the small town of Talgarth and what you see today once included a cow shed and hay barn, but has now been skillfully converted into a holiday home. In days gone by the farmer milked his cows here and delivered it from a churn by horse and cart; it wasn’t very far to travel so it must have been very fresh! The detached barn, with its oak beams, offers bright open plan living space, ground floor bedrooms and shower room and two large first floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom.
    The ancient market town of Talgarth is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, particularly as it forms the "Gateway to the Black Mountains" which act as a backdrop to the town. There are wonderful walking opportunities on the doorstep and an annual walking festival in the town in May. While in the town, visit the local businesses around the pretty stone streets where friendly staff will be able to offer you some of the finest local produce, watch the gentle river as it flows under the Medieval Tower Bridge or, at Christmas gaze at the dazzling lights. The town offers a real chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thanks to the BBC’s Village SOS programme, Talgarth now has a fully restored working water mill with a very popular café. There are cosy pubs with roaring log fires, real ales and home cooked food; all within an easy stroll of Llaethdy - Milkhouse.
    Discover Parc Wood or Pwll-yr-Wrach waterfalls and nature reserve, take a look at the views from the top of Bronllys Castle, or simply admire the spectacular views from the common land overlooking the town. Close to Brecon, Crickhowell and Hay-on-Wye, Talgarth is an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park on foot, whether it’s the high peaks or the lush green valleys of the Wye and the Usk which capture the imagination. Talgarth and the surrounding countryside is a haven for artists and photographers. For a fascinating insight into the life and times of workers during the early years of the Industrial Revolution, why not visit Blaenavon Ironworks? The site is home to one of the best preserved 18th century ironworks in Europe and comes complete with furnaces, cast houses, a magnificent water balance tower, cupola furnace and ironworker’s cottages. Take a trip on a vintage steam locomotive across the narrow gauge heritage railway that runs beside Pontsticill and Pentwyn Reservoirs. You could spend a lifetime in the Brecon Beacons National Park and not see all there is to see; but you can discover quite a lot if you make Llaethdy – Milkhouse your home for your holiday whether it’s a short break or slightly longer stay. Fresh air, wide open spaces, a creative atmosphere and loads to entertain you, whatever the weather. There’s plenty to enjoy after dark too, from superb annual festivals, full of authentic Welsh flavour, to the famously clear, starry skies. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
