It’s simple and charming inside. Walk in to plain floorboards with rugs, a sitting room with a window seat, fresh garden flowers, an open fire, books by local writers and landscape watercolours alongside originals by Welsh artists. The kitchen has basics in the cupboard, plus a bottle of local cider. The evening sun pours in through the garden door – eat out here by the barbecue, or in the dining room around the French oak table, with a Swedish bench with cushions and a wood-burning stove.
Two bedrooms upstairs have White Company linen, feather duvets and pillows, garden views and Welsh blankets in winter. On the landing find board games and books on local walks.
Set off from the door to tackle a bit of Offa’s Dyke, a spectacular 177-mile walk meandering through the Welsh/English border; finish the day with great views and a pint at The Harp Inn in Old Radnor (3 miles from the house). Come home to a long hot bath with 100 Acres soaps.
