When all you need is to escape, relax and climb off the treadmill, Troedrhiwfawr (meaning Foot Of The Hill) is waiting for you. A charming and secluded cottage in the heart of rural Wales. This pretty retreat enjoys stunning mountain views and is just around the corner from the Elan Valley. Perfect for both a romantic escape or a family holiday.

Enter into the cosy sitting room complete with a warming wood burning stove set within a feature exposed stone wall. A useful boot room/study provides storage and desk space, and leads into the bright and well-equipped kitchen, a spacious room with plenty of room for the dining table. A stable door looks out onto the pretty terrace, where you can fire up the barbecue and enjoy al-fresco dining surrounded by beautiful views of the forestry. To the front of the property is another garden, perfect for enjoying the sunshine. Stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor where both bedrooms are well-appointed, each having their own en-suite shower room. Bedroom one enjoys dual aspect windows; and pretty bedroom two boasts characterful exposed beams with twin single beds, perfect for children or adults alike.

The cottage is close to both cycle and hiking routes and is adjacent to an area owned by The Woodland Trust. Pack an picnic and head to the nearby Cwm Rheidol Reservoir, a stunning space to enjoy the twinkling waters and surrounding countryside.

The River Rheidol (Afon Rheidol in Welsh) is 19 miles in length with a catchment area covering 73 square miles. It rises in the headwaters of the Nant y Moch reservoir on the western edge of Plynlimon and then flows south through the village of Ponterwyd on the main Aberystwyth to Rhayader road. Continuing south-westwards through ancient Welsh Oak woodlands, the Afon Rheidol joins with the Afon Mynach. The river descends one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Wales at Pontarfynach (Devil's Bridge). Below these waterfalls, the river passes the abandoned workings of the Cwm Rheidol lead mine. The remainder of the meandering course of the river is through an ever-widening valley before reaching the sea at Aberystwyth.

With all this at your disposal, not to mention the rare and, welcomed by some, absence of WiFi, you can be sure of peace, tranquillity and rejuvenation.
