Cwmbiga Bach

4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Llanidloes, Powys, Wales
Cwmbiga Bach is lost in a deeply rural setting amidst the wooded hills of mid Wales. The cottage is within walking distance of the sources of the Rivers Severn and Wye, as well as the gloriously scenic Llyn Clywedog. It is a beautifully tranquil and peaceful location in which to simply relax, whilst also providing a wide range of outdoor opportunities from the doorstep. Walking is a must, but you can also cycle, mountain bike, or even saddle up your horse from the cottage. Angling is available on the nearby Clywedog, whilst we guarantee that staying at Cwmbiga Bach will turn you into an avid birdwatcher. Cwmbiga Bach is one of two cottages at Cwmbiga Farm, the origins of which date back over 600yrs. Though no longer a working farm, Cwmbiga has a range of historic outbuildings and some 60 acres of sustainably managed pasture.

Delightful accommodation in a very quiet rural location surrounded by hills, trees and nature. The only neighbours are the owners so it is very peaceful with loads of walking on the doorstep. This really is an ideal venue for nature lovers and walkers.More
