Cottage In The Woods Idyllic Self Catering Hay-on-Wye Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks in Velindre, Powys, Wales


Charming stone cottage set in 200 acres of private woodland at the foot of the Black Mountains near Hay on Wye.

Nestled at the foot of the Black Mountains, this charming stone holiday cottage provides the perfect base for exploring some of the most stunning countryside on the Wales/England borders.

Whether you are looking for a secluded, romantic getaway or an active walking holiday, Cefn y Waun offers everything you need.

Cefn y Waun really is far from the madding crowd! 'Cefn y Waun' translates to the Back of the Heath – describing exactly its rural location on the ridge of the Hay Forest. Peace and quiet is guaranteed as the cottage is located in our privately owned 200 acre woodland, through which guests have the freedom to wander. The Black Mountains are at your doorstep, offering fantastic walking country with breath-taking views across the Brecon Beacons, Radnorshire hills and across to the English borders. Explore the local town of Hay on Wye, famous for its individual boutiques and countless bookshops. Choose from a great range of pubs or restaurants to dine before making your way back to Cefn y Waun to relax in the deep bathtub or in the cosy lounge in front of the wood burning stove, maybe with a glass of wine.

Cefn y Waun has been lovingly renovated to a high specification, retaining the property's character and charm. The cottage is reached along two long forestry tracks, high up in the woods, and has spectacular views of the Black Mountains and Lord Hereford's Knob. With spectacular views from every window, the cottage offers the comfort and convenience of a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable dining room and Sky TV whilst retaining its original charm with flagstone floors, a log burning stove and exposed beams. The accommodation sleeps four adults.

The kitchen has a flag stone floor and is well equipped with handmade oak fitted units, an electric cooker with ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, Belfast sink, washing machine and pine dining table and chairs.

The sitting room has a quarry tiled floor with rugs and a very efficient wood burning stove. The super-comfortable sofa and chairs are dressed with plenty of plump cushions. Here you will find the TV and dvd player.

Up a flight of wooden stairs to two bedrooms; the first has a double bed and the second offers matching twin beds. Both are pretty rooms with good quality bed linen.

The bathroom, which is light and fresh, has a bath with a hand held shower, hand basin and WC.

All electricity and heating oil is included in the rental price. Logs are available for an additional £30 for a load which should be sufficient to last for a long weekend stay in mid-winter, burning morning, afternoon and evening.

The fenced in garden offers garden furniture and a bbq – perfect for summer evenings.

A gravel drive provides plenty of space for parking and of course, there is the 200 acres of private woodland to explore!

There is no land line telephone - this is really a get-away-from-it-all retreat!
