Loved up couples will be very snug here but it’s equally good for one if you want some space. This used to be the forge for the local blacksmith and its whitewashed exterior with oxblood paintwork sits well in the landscape. The stable door takes you into one room with cobbles and flagstones on the floor, a high beamed ceiling and a big old cowl over the fireplace. Climb a wide ladder with proper steps to the loft and sleeping platform with a Velux window for stargazing, local woven cushions and soft Welsh blanket on the bed.
A dinky, open-plan kitchen is perfectly adequate and you’re left a bottle of wine and some Welsh cakes. Take them out to your own picnic bench with views over the valley, or barbecue your supper out here on balmy evenings, you won’t hear anything much but birdsong.
Walk, cycle, visit castles, go mackerel fishing or explore interesting towns and villages, bring the freshest fish and seafood home to cook.
