Description

Little Bettws is a compact self-contained annexe to the owners' home, a converted Victorian School in the heart of the beautiful Radnorshire countryside. This provides the perfect location for a peaceful holiday exploring the many footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes throughout the unspoilt surroundings. The hamlet of Bettws, with its pretty little church adjacent to the property, is just 1.5 miles from Hundred House, 8 miles from Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells. Dogs are welcome at Little Bettws and the owners have several of their own.

The accommodation has two radiators run off the owners’ central heating system, electric radiator, convector heater and shower room fan heater to supplement. The cottage is accessed by French doors from the garden and comprises:

Bed-sitting room: with single bed, pull-out single (full sized), two small easy chairs, pine table with two bench stools, wall-mounted TV and DVD player. WiFi is available (although this is not always reliable due to the rural location).

Kitchen: galley-style, with fitted units, electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave and washer/dryer.

Shower Room: smart, contemporary shower room with electric shower in good-sized enclosure, WC and basin.

Outside: the annexe has its own fully enclosed, private orchard garden, with small patio area and garden furniture. The owners make cider from the many apples growing in the garden. Guests also have access to 5 acres of the owners' grounds, including steep steps and footpath down to the River Edw, and two wildflower meadows, designated an SSSI. Further walks on the owners' land nearby. Lockable bike storage and stabling are also available by prior arrangement.

Parking: at the edge of the garden for one car.

Hundred House, with pub serving meals, is 1.5 miles away. The Wye Valley Walk passes through the market town of Builth Wells, 8 miles away, and Llandrindod Wells, also 8 miles distant, is home to the National Cycle Museum. The trip across the moors to Llandrindod Wells, by car, on foot or by bike, provides some wonderful panoramic views. The 'book town' of Hay-on-Wye is only 15 miles away and the beautiful Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons National Park are both within 30 miles.

Reviews

I found the cottage was situated in a very peaceful setting In the village of Hundred House and the owners were always very helpful if i had a problem.

Mr S,

What can i say, This property IS pet friendly! The garden is fully fenced and large enough for our ver large boisterous dog to really enjoy himself. The owners were very friendly and helpful and their dogs were delightful. We have visited several times before and plan on returning in the autumn

Mr R,

Great place to stay. Comfortable well organised peaceful. Excellent hosts. We have come home very refreshed and relaxed.

Mr M,

Lovely homely and comfortable, friendly unobtrusive hosts, great value for money.

Mr A,

We had a totally delightful and comfortable stay at Little Bettws. Our hosts, the Powells, were so hospitable and friendly, and gave us great info on the area, and beautiful scenic drives and local walks. The annexe itself is comfy and well-equipped. The location is divine if you're a nature lover - it's surrounded by orchards and views of the Welsh hills. Birds singing, very little traffic around, so tranquil, a green oasis. I would highly recommend Little Bettws, especially in fine weather, which we were blessed with.

Miss D,
