The Cwtch is a luxurious glamping pod in a stunning location. Sleeping two to four people, it has a double bedroom, separate bathroom, fitted kitchenette, and an enclosed garden with an outdoor hot tub and seating area. It's perfect for couples, but it is also welcoming for families and friends with a sofa that opens into a double bed. If you've avoided glamping, thinking it's about throwing a blow-up mattress on the floor of a wooden hut, you'll be delighted by this well-appointed holiday home in the pretty Powys village of Llandegley.
Llandegley is in a fantastic location for a relaxing holiday. It's a small village a few miles from Llandrindod Wells and within easy reach of Hay-on-Wye, the Brecon Beacons National Park, Shropshire Hills AONB, and the Elan Valley. If you love being outdoors and having spectacular views, then you will adore the area around Llandegley. Start your holiday with a walk to Llandegley Rocks, head a few miles east to pick up Offa's Dyke, and explore via footpaths near Rhayader, Newbridge-on-Wye, Llanelwedd, and Howey Village. There are miles of bridleways accessible by mountain bikers, who can also enjoy the trails at Nant yr Arian and Rhayader. Some guests have arranged a guided pony trek through a local stable to see parts of the landscape they might not otherwise be able to access.
Llandrindod Wells is a welcoming town with great amenities, including a supermarket, cafes, pubs, and takeaways. Places to visit during your stay include the Llandrindod Lake, the National Cycle Museum, the Welsh Lavender Farm near Builth Wells, and the Red Kite Feeding Centre in Rhayader - stop here en route to the gorgeous Elan Valley for a memorable day out. The border between England and Wales has been fiercely contested over the centuries, a legacy evident at places like Carreg Cennen Castle, Powis Castle and Dinefwr Castle, the latter of which has a beautiful estate with gardens inspired by Capability Brown. Further afield, Aberystwyth and Cardigan Bay are around an hour's drive, so you can easily spend a day at the beach, dolphin spotting and walking along the coastal footpath.
The Cwtch welcomes guests all year round with short breaks or longer stays possible, depending on availability.
