Small families and couples will love a break away in this 500-year-old timber-framed farmhouse which retains much of its original charm and is in a beautiful, peaceful location. Lovers of wildlife will relish the opportunity to visit Llyn Clywedog which features a number of walking trails, as well as regular sightings of birds such as buzzards, red kites and ospreys.

You’ll notice the original features from the moment you step through the door, with stone flooring in the entrance hall. Configured in a reverse-level style, the living room is located on the first floor, complete with a flame-effect electric fire, two sofas and a TV. This room is filled with natural light from the skylight windows and doubles as a dining area, with a table located both inside and outside on the balcony. Downstairs is the kitchen, fitted with a cosy breakfast bar and ample space to prepare meals for all the family, split with an arched doorway into the main kitchen and the utility room. You’ll have the option to choose between two bedrooms, a double with a feature exposed stone wall and an en-suite bathroom, and a zip-and-link twin which can be made up as a king-size upon request. Completing the ground floor is a family shower room. Outside, there is a front patio which has furniture and a BBQ and you’re also welcome to explore the owners’ grounds which surround the property. For a little extra entertainment, there is also an outdoor games area with a tennis court, and a games room.

Hafren Forest (13 miles), home to the source of the River Severn is a fantastic area to visit, with an array of awe-inspiring waterfalls and wildlife to see along the waymarked trails. From here, you can also join the long-distance routes of the Wye Valley Walk and the Severn Way.

This was a really lovely cottage perfect for my family. The kids loved it and so did the dog! My wife and I really enjoyed the idyllic location and found it very safe to let the kids and dog just run around and be free :)

Derw Cottages is a wonderful place to stay. Our visit was for seeing family locally and it was with great pride that we couldn't wait to show them the place. Everything was really comfortable, the upstairs living room in Number 2 was a particular strength as you get the full impact of the views. The beds were warm and comfy (especially the considerRead moreate addition of electric blankets in mid January!) and the kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped. Having a family to entertain it was great to have a games room. We would definitely consider returning for future visits and we're very appreciative of the effort put in by our hosts. Hide

The owner of the cottages Helen was very warm, welcoming & friendly The cottages are very good value for money The only negative was that I didn't realise that they weren't all next to each other

The organisational procedures went very smoothly. The process was clearly explained and it all went like clockwork. The web site was easy to follow and the information given was accurate. The cottage was delightful and the hosts lovely and accommodating. I have already told several friends about your company. When the occasion to go away for a shorRead moret break comes up again I will certainly consider what you then have on offer. Thank you. Hide

The cottage was great, it was very well equipped and immaculately clean. It was lovely to sit on the balcony for lunch, watching the sheep and enjoying the view. The location was fabulous, the games room great fun for us adult children and we relaxed straight away. We would definitely recommend 2 Derw Cottages and stay again.

It was our 3rd visit and its perfect for us each time. The peace, the view, the tennis and games room, the walks up the hill, the short drive to Llanidloes. We all just relax, which is no mean feat with two teenage boys. Lovely, thank you.
