Buildings are not often described as pretty, yet that is a good word to describe this particular holiday home and the description applies to both the exterior and interior.
The exterior is a mellow cream and oak timber frame construction with a large double garage attached. There are lawns to the front and back gardens.
Inside the cottage is equally pleasing; polished oak floors dotted with rugs, oak ceiling beams, inglenooks and oak doors. Although this luxurious cottage has only three bedrooms to sleep six people, the living accommodation is generous with nicely proportioned rooms.
The sitting room is a pleasant place to relax in front of the log burner and watch TV. Spotlights cast light where needed. Logs for the woodburner are included in the rent. Another public room double acts as a games room and contains a 52in TV with a basic Sky package, table tennis and pool tables.
The kitchen is a joy to behold, spacious with a central island and a huge range cooker built into a brick alcove. A dining table stands at the far end of the room in front of French doors leading into the garden.
The three bedrooms have an assortment of beds. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a smart en-suite with a roll top bath. The second bedroom has a 4ft bed which is wider than the standard 3ft single. The third bedroom offers twin beds. A welcome feature in the family bathroom is a P-shaped bath incorporating a spa.
This charming holiday home near Newtown offers a very good base for a country holiday in mid Wales. Good quality accommodation is the first priority for a satisfying break, so why compromise? Get off to a good start and the rest will follow.
This part of mid Wales might suit dog owners and the cottage is pet-friendly, one dog is most welcome.
Aberhafesp has several examples of black and white houses which are prevalent in adjoining Shropshire. St. Gwynogs, an old parish church stands on the edge of town. Newtown is larger with more amenities. The Mill Pony Trekking Centre in Aberhafesp offers paintballing and off-road go-karting in addition to pony treks through the countryside. This could spell a lot of fun for families.
Wales is amazingly beautiful and not just the coast or Snowdonia
although the mountains can often be spotted in the distance. It can be pleasant and interesting to eat out in new places, to wander around villages with a different style from our home town. Book this 5 star Aberhafesp holiday home and look forward to a new adventure this summer.
