Canoldy cottage is located a short walking distance from the local pub and train station in Cilmery, 2 miles from Builth Wells. The village is famous for being close to the spot where the last native Prince of Wales of direct descent, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, was slain in a skirmish by soldiers in the service of Edward I of England, on 11 December 1282. A memorial stone to Llywelyn ap Gruffudd was erected on the site in 1956 and serves as the focal point for the annual remembrance day.
The cottage is situated close to the Royal Welsh Showground, the Elan Valley Dams and an excellent 18 hole golf course. Many other activities are catered for locally including Mountain Biking, Fishing, Pony Treking and walking in the Brecon Beacons. There are also good eating places in the vicinity serving local produce.
Builth Wells Golf Club presents a fair challenge to golfers of all levels. It is attractively laid out in splendid surroundings and is a comfortable walk. The variety in the holes means that players at the end of their round will find that they have used most of the clubs in their bag at some time.
There are many interesting bridal paths in the vicinity. There will also be stables on site in the near future, enabling guests to bring their own horses.
Walking & Cycling
This area is a paradise for walkers and cyclists with the Brecon Beacons National Park, Epynt Way, Wye Valley Walk and the Elan Valley all being close by.
The river Wye is popular as a navigable river with canoeists. Llangorse Lake, Pontsticill Reservoir (Merthyr Tydfil Sailing Club), the river Usk and the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal also offer opportunities for water sport.
Major Events in the area include:
Royal Welsh Show
The Royal Welsh Show is one of the most prestigious events of its type in Europe, and will once again be bringing together the farming industry and rural community in a celebration of the best of British Agriculture with a unique and very special 'Welsh' flavour. Be part of this exciting summer event at The Showground at Llanelwedd, Builth Wells. A real family event!
Other major events at the Showground include the 'Winter Fair' and the 'Small Holders & Garden Festival'.
The Guardian Hay Festival
The Hay Festival is an international festival that celebrates great writing in every medium in Britain and around the world.
Brecon Jazz Festival
For one August weekend a year, the streets of Brecon are alive with the sound of music as this small market town plays host to its annual jazz festival.

This was our second visit and once again our stay was as good as the first time. The property is like home from home with the extra wow factor of a hot tub! It was easy to book & pay, all information was accurate, thank you.
Recommends: There are some fantastic walks not far away, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains etc.Virginia from Northamptonshire - 1st June 2017
Very peaceful, locals very friendly and helpful. Local pub is very good.Chris from Rotherham - 21st March 2017
The property was lovely, Richard and Jayne made us feel welcome but we were left to our own devices which was lovely. The hot tub was a fantastic extra and one we took great advantage of. We all want to return together and with other family members and friends. Food in Prince Llewellyn pub (walking distance) was very nice. We stopped in Builth Wells and had a lovely walk along the river.Lynne from Cardiff - 6th February 2017
Our visit to the cottage was amazing. It's one of the best Christmas's I have had for a long time.
The Elan Valley was just as beautiful as I remember it when I was a child. The local Pub in Climeri was very nice. Foyles was a lovely place to eat out.Donna, Venture Wales - 4th January 2017
