It’s enchanting up here, surrounded by trees and jutting out over the River Ysgir – the living space hovers suspended in the air with huge windows drawing in the light. Whatever the weather it feels dramatic. Cosy up in front of the wood-burner, watch a film, drink wine, play cards… There’s a second room for chilling out with a swing chair and a table overlooking the garden.
Cooks will love the large kitchen – eat here or in the sheltered ‘outdoor’ dining room. Watch the children splash about in the river or climb up to the treehouse. Bring a canoe, launch it off the small jetty and paddle downriver for miles.
There are plenty of maps and books for you to plan cycle routes, walks, watersports, horse riding – it’s only five miles to the Brecon Beacons. The Felin Fach Griffin (nine miles) serves great food. Head back for deep sleeps in stylish bedrooms – each with its own sleek bathroom.
