Rowan House is a substantial detached house, situated in enclosed grounds, in a peaceful rural location on a working sheep farm with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The property is situated just three miles from the market town of Llanidloes, about 10 miles SW of Newtown and 15 miles N of Rhayader. This is a lovely location for walkers, birdwatchers and nature lovers, whether enjoying the peace and quiet of the house and garden, or visiting nearby lakes, woodlands and waterfalls.
Rowan House has spacious, well-furnished rooms, with oil-fired central heating throughout. The comfortable sitting room has a woodburning stove (initial basket of logs provided), TV with basic Sky package, and DVD player; there is also a second small sitting room with two sofas (one a sofabed), small TV, and a small dining table and four chairs. The dining kitchen includes a dishwasher, and in the adjoining utility room there is a washing machine and small chest freezer. There is an extending dining table, which will comfortably seat eight (extra chairs available). There is also a ground floor shower room. To the first floor is a family bathroom and four bedrooms, a king size with en suite shower room, another king size, a family room with double bed and 4' double bed, and a twin room. The enclosed gardens around the property include plenty of parking and turning space, a large patio area with garden furniture and lovely views, grassed areas and mature planting. Below the house (which is in an elevated position) are storage barns, within the enclosed grounds, to which the owner occasionally requires access.
Llanidloes is a good central location for exploring Mid Wales, with the reservoirs of the Elan Valley and Red Kite centre near Rhayader just a short drive to the south; Rheidol Valley steam railway, Devil's Bridge waterfalls and the coast at Aberystwyth, Borth and Ynyslas (30 miles) to the west; the historic market towns of Montgomery, with panoramic views from its castle ruins, and Welshpool, with Powis Castle (NT) and Welshpool-Llanfair Caereinion Light Railway, to the north east. Excellent local walking, including Glyndwr's Way, mountain biking trails in Hafren Forest, and watersports at Llyn Clywedog, all within easy reach.

Absolutely brilliant - a hidden gem! The house is set literally in the middle of nowhere with all windows outwardly facing onto beautiful Welsh hills and valleys. The house is within a few minutes drive of the beautiful village of Llanidloes with shops, cafes and restaurants. The house itself is fantastic, with a wood burner in the lounge, very posh and beautiful layout, plenty of space, 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a separate side lounge in addition to the main lounge, a utility room, and a large kitchen diner with a large circular dining table. The owner, Mr Jones, is one of the nicest gentlemen we have met whilst booking holidays like this. The photos do not do the house justice and if you want a family break where you will literally be thrown into the beautiful Welsh countryside then this is it. You will have access to WIFI and easy driving distance to many towns also. We wanted to take our children to a place where they could get off their ipads and enjoy the surroundings - this house helped us to do this. Bravo!Mr Stuart Hood - 17th April 2018

We loved the property and location. The facilities within the home were excellent. There was everything to hand. The owner was really nice and friendly. Would definitely return. Miss Kathryn Thompson - 29th August 2017
Rowan House is a lovely home from home, away from the hubbub of modern day life with very limited mobile phone signal so if you're looking for an escape this is certainly a good choice. Plenty of space for up to 10 people to relax and enjoy themselves. Mrs Wendy Farrier - 23rd April 2017
