About Nant Llachar Cottage

Nant Llachar Cottage sleeps six people and is perfect for families, friends and also couples who appreciate a little extra space around them. Enjoying a detached position with glorious views over the Vyrnwy Valley, this pretty stone holiday cottage is within easy walking distance of Lake Vyrnwy and RSPB nature reserve, a beautiful reservoir that's a haven for wildlife with its vast expanse of water and impressive Victorian dam. Full of character and charm, Nant Llachar Cottage has been lovingly refurbished with its original features, including stripped floors, beams and an impressive inglenook, enhanced by modern day amenities to ensure a high degree of comfort and style.

With plenty of outside space for relaxing when the sun shines, Nant Llachar Cottage sits within private terraced gardens on the outskirts of woodland. Enjoy sitting out on the terrace with your morning coffee soaking up the amazing views; a glass of wine in front of the chimenea watching the flickering flames; or relaxing in the summerhouse with a good book if the weather is inclement. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the glory of the Welsh countryside whether you prefer to do it from the comfort of a chair or getting out and about amongst it. Outdoor activities are plentiful and include kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing and river-rafting for those who enjoy water-based activities; and bird watching, mountain biking and cycling for those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land. Bikes can be hired from the local visitor centre and canoes and sailing dinghies are also available for hire at the lakeside boathouse.

The RSPB reserve attracts an abundance of bird life making it popular with twitchers hoping to spot not only the many resident and migratory varieties but also peregrine falcons - a rare and special sight. There are bird-hides dotted around the lake, and for fishermen, try your hand at trout and salmon fishing (permits can be purchased locally).

Nant Llachar Cottage is within walking distance (half a mile) of the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel, with a restaurant and The Tavern for those looking for a pub meal and pint. There is also a shop for forgotten provisions, along with a wider choice of amenities, shops and grocery stores in the nearby towns of Oswestry, Welshpool and Llanfyllin.

The cottage is an excellent base and welcoming retreat from which to enjoy the local area, plus its close proximity to the Snowdonia National Park makes it an ideal base for exploring the many attractions of North Wales too. Bala Lake (home to Alice, the little Welsh steam engine who provides a wonderfully nostalgic way of seeing the scenery) and the Berwyn Mountains in Mid-Wales are also within easy reach for a day trip, as are the attractive medieval town of Shrewsbury and Roman city of Chester, both just an hour’s drive away. The stunning Welsh coastline for a day by the sea is within easy driving distance - in particular we recommend the golden sands of Aberdovey and also Harlech with its stunning castle. Other attractions within easy reach include King Arthur’s Labyrinth for a day of myth and legend and an all-weather activity that is sure to captivate; Zip World (the World’s fastest zipline) and Bounce Below underground trampolines both near Blaenau Ffestiniog; the Centre for Alternative Technology and a great choice of country houses, gardens and heritage sites, including Powis and Chirk castles and Erddig country house (all National Trust properties).
