Situated in a hilltop village, Bwthyn Delyn is a white-washed gem of a building: simple but comfortable; rustic but sophisticated; ancient, but with some up-to-the-minute touches and a lot of style. This is a stunning location, opposite a magnificent country church and close to a wonderful village pub, with far-reaching views across the beautiful Welsh hills of Radnorshire. Sleeps two to 5 (plus an infant) in a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom. Up to two well-behaved dogs are very welcome.

On entering the old cottage, you are welcomed by the hallway which has an excellent Clearview wood burner in its fireplace, an old pew, a fireside chair, and the staircase upstairs. The spacious living-room combines a sitting-area (with another wood burner) and a light, bright dining area with big glazed doors opening out onto a lovely sheltered terrace.

The kitchen is big, too, with plenty of space, lots of work surface, a stove with 5-burner gas hob, and - again – big glazed doors onto the terrace. A utility room next-door has a washing-machine, another sink, and a downstairs loo.

The garden wraps around the cottage, is gated and enclosed, has off-lane parking, a sheltered patio area outside the kitchen and the living-room, and lawn either side of the house. There is a pretty view of the church and the hill behind.

Things to do around Bwthyn Delyn holiday cottage

You won’t be short of things to see and do in this beautiful unspoilt part of Wales. The border towns provide a wealth of interest: Hay-on-Wye is renowned for its second-hand bookshops, unique boutiques, galleries, antique shops, independent food shops, cafes, and bistros. Presteigne is a delightful old town, with all the food shopping you could possibly need, including a brilliant grocery-cum-deli with fresh local meat, veg and river fish. Gardens and houses open to the public are plentiful, as are beautiful old churches and castles. The Radnor hills create the visual magic in this part of the country, as well as the varied walks to suit all tastes – whether you would like to escape into the hill-top wilds, or enjoy gentler strolls closer to home. Lovely pubs are plentiful in the locality (including in the village itself), or places such as The Stagg Inn offer the kind of food for a special meal out.

From the visitors book at Bwthyn Delyn

'We had a lovely stay in this beautiful part of Wales. The cottage is charming and has many interesting and pleasant features, it's a lovely cottage, well situated. This is the fourth cottage we have booked through you, and we intend doing so again.'

'We loved the cottage, it's location and the way it was furnished. Really couldn't fault it.'

'Well, what a wonderful spot for some rest and relaxation...Justine and David, you have certainly created a beautiful space - homely yet pleasing to the discerning eye. In particular, we loved our bed - so comfy! Crisp white linen in the truest sense. Jase enjoyed all your lamps and the woodburners (a novelty for an Aussie fella), and I the stillness and the tick of the living-room clock, the feeling of really being tucked away from the hurly burly for a spell. Thank you for your open friendliness, the afternoon tea, and sharing your lovely home.' Jon and Jase, Australia

'We have so enjoyed our short break here. We can't wait to come back next year to explore this lovely area and magnificent views when the weather is kinder and the days are longer. Enjoyed a superb birthday lunch at The Stagg and sampled the many delights offered at the deli in Presteigne. Thank you.' Annabel and Ron

'We've had a lovely peaceful Christmas in this enchanting house. Thank you, Justine and David, for all your help in advance of our arrival.' Beverley, Nathaniel, Francis and Phyllis, London
