About this property

Llanafan Fawr 2 miles. A light and airy first floor apartment with fantastic valley views across the lake to the mountains, beautifully secluded within a cluster of holidays homes boasting great facilities including an indoor swimming pool, close to the village of Llanafan Fawr and 8 miles from Builth Wells, home of the Royal Welsh Showground. Set in beautiful countryside and surrounded by woodland providing an ideal location for nature lovers with an array of wonderful walking from the doorstep. Perfect for couples and small families, looking to get away to fantastic tranquil countryside yet being able to make the most of the heating indoor poor and leisure facilities. The interior is cosy and welcoming, perfect to relax after a day exploring the undulating Mid Wales countryside. There is a double bedroom with views towards the lake and en-suite shower room. A modern, well equipped kitchen, perfect for a leisurely breakfast whilst you plan your days adventures, opens onto a cosy living room with mountain views. Fishermen will love the fishing lake, but you will need a rod licence. Watch the red kites soaring overhead as you discover the spectacular unspoilt countryside take a trip into the market towns of Builth Wells, home of the Royal Welsh Showground, Llandrindod Wells and Rhayader before heading into the Elan Valley with its imposing Victorian Dams and reservoirs within the Cambrian Mountains.

Peacefully situated amidst beautiful, unspoilt countryside, the rural village of Llanafan Fawr is home to an old church and Powys' oldest pub, The Red Lion, which serves fine, traditional fare. Set in the slopes of the Llanafan Valley and within easy distance of the equally beautiful Wye Valley, the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walking and mountain biking opportunities, though it also provides an excellent backdrop for fishing and bird-watching along the Wye and Irfon rivers. Builth Wells is also within easy driving distance and this picturesque market town provides a variety of interesting crafts stores and many collectors' fairs. The annual Royal Welsh Show is hosted in the town every July and is a colourful, fascinating fete. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the spectacular Black Mountains are easy to reach from the area, making this an ideal place for people looking to enjoy the outdoor life or simply relax against this stunning backdrop.

    Although there are several apartments on the site it still felt as though we were the only people there. Woodpecker 2 is especially good for views as it has windows facing in different directions.Would certainly go again.

  • Suzanne

    There were light bulbs missing, the hallway light did not work, the front door did not lock and had screws missing from the main latch and all the windows in the lounge (which had the most amazing views) were blown. However, the staff, when they were there could not have been more helpful and having the use of a swimming with timed bookable sessions was great.

    The pool was lovely and warm . Nobody can't help the bad weather. I would love to come back in the summer. The only thing was the Internet or not having the Internet, most of the time no Internet at all. They can probably put a poll to make the signal stronger. Apart from that I loved it!
