Through a village encircled by rivers, around twisting lanes and grassy farm tracks: you’ll arrive to a cosy country cottage surrounded by fields. It’s an efficient working farm – modern buildings sit alongside – with cattle and sheep to greet and a friendly farmer’s wife to show you the sights.Fire up the wood-burning stove in the open-plan living room with its large table for family meals. A big, open staircase leads up to three calming bedrooms with farm and fields views. Gardens are shared with the other two cottages in the row – take all three if you’re a larger group.Villages surround you and walks are plentiful and varied: along rivers, over hills, to the distant Berwyn Mountains if the mood takes. Kayaks, zip-lines, quad bikes and horses can all be found locally, plus four National Trust houses within the hour.
