Pippins was converted in 1999 from a former granary, and is set in 14 acres of pastureland overlooking the Ithon Valley, at the foot of Castle Bank, the site of the ruined Norman Cefnllys Castle. The cottage is adjacent to the owners own Grade II listed residence, which dates back to the 17th century.
Pippins has an ‘upside-down’ living arrangement and has been lovingly furnished by the owners. The open-plan upstairs living room and kitchen area overlooks the surrounding hills, making the most of the wonderful views. Downstairs there are two bedrooms (one with en-suite facilities), and an additional shower room.
Guests will appreciate the private garden overlooking the open countryside, with access to a public right of way leading down the hill to the 13th-century Cefnllys church. This is on the banks of the River Ithon, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, where you can cross the Shaky Bridge to Bailey Einon Nature Reserve. This is superb walking country, and is accessible straight from the doorstep. Red kites and buzzards can regularly be seen soaring over the land. Visitors to Pippins are welcome to wander over the owners’ land, taking in the far-reaching views.
A pub serving food can be found in Penybont just 2½ miles away, and Llandrindod Wells, approximately 15 minutes by car, has all the usual amenities of pubs, restaurants and local shops, together with the bonus of two large supermarkets. The magnificent Elan Valley is just over half an hour’s drive away, with a 9-mile traffic free path, stunning scenery and a fascinating visitor centre, café and a variety of events all year round. The surrounding area has long been famed for rare and beautiful wildlife, and the International Dark Sky Park status of the Elan Valley makes it an ideal place to view the moon, planets and stars, and sometimes you can get a superb view of the International Space Station.
Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls, the Vale of Rheidol steam railway and the coast at Aberystwyth are around an hour away by car.
Immerse yourself in the fantastic and fascinating area, and make Pippins your home from home whilst you enjoy a well deserved break. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    A beautiful upside-down cottage in the middle of nowhere, perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. Comfortable and clean, with stunning views, and the owners could not be more helpful. Our second time here, and it won't be our last!! And badgers came to visit.

    We had a fantastic holiday at Pippins. The cottage was so clean, cosy and homely. The hosts greeted us on our arrival and showed us around. They've thought about everything in the cottage. The surrounding areas were so peaceful and quiet. The welcome pack was a big bonus. Our boy couldn't get enough of the lovely homemade brownies! Thank you very much for having us. We highly recommend it.

    It's a very lovely place. I spent two weeks there with my dog to retreat and rest. Pippins did the trick. The family who own the property are friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend. It was an added bonus to see a family of Badgers who come to the Owners house next door for a handful of nuts each night.
