Furniture hand-crafted from oak, mezzanine bedrooms and an oriental garden. Becky gives you eggs from her farm. Offa's Dyke is close

At the trough of Caer Caradoc hill fort, not too far from Offa's Dyke, is a slice of Japan. The cottage, once a cowshed, fits into the fields without a murmur; expect an eastern elegance inside. Low level furniture is hand-crafted from oak in a living room open to the eaves, there's a huge low sofa with large cushions, warm floors and a new wood-burner to keep things toasty, and triple doors that glide open to an oriental garden – with a fishpond, hot tub and stone terraces. Beyond is Squire Farm with cats, dogs and hens; Becky gives you home eggs on arrival and milk, butter and home-made bread. After a day's exploration of woodland and river – if you're lucky you'll spot herons – then it's up the stair to the mezzanine bedroom for sweet dreams under sloped ceilings. Awake to the prospect of toast and coffee in the galley kitchen, served on pristine white crockery. To cleanse: simply step behind the quirky serpentine glass of the wet room wall and let the water do the rest. The 'Rising Sun' (that's 'Xidong' in English) is a haven of serenity. Squire Cottage, more traditional, is equally delightful.
