Reviews

Beautiful settings, lovely friendly people, perfect peace and quiet. Aberdyfi beach is a must, you feel like you're abroad with temperatures of 18 at the end of October - fantastic, stunning.Claire from Bramley, Surrey - 31st October 2017
Lovely quiet location that gave us the time to relax and chill out.
Tips: You definitely need a car for getting to the local ammenaties, strong walking boots/shoes are a must if you want to explore on foot. A trip on the Welshpool and Llanfair light railway is always a treat.Guests from Shifnal - 2nd September 2017
The property was stunning and so were the surroundings, the owners were lovely and made us feel so at home.
Tips: Explore the farm that the cottage is on, it's beautiful.Kelly from Norfolk - 15th August 2017
Great farm cottage stay for the two of us and our border collie. Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall and surrounding mountains are fantastic scenery. The Kings Head at Guilsfield is a good nearby pub for food and drink.Couple from Leominster - 24th June 2017
Lovely cottage in fantastic location. Very easy to find following directions provided. Powis Castle is well worth a visit, it is amazing.Family from Lincolnshire - 30th May 2017
Accommodation very suitable for our needs, staying on the farm in the countryside. Peaceful and relaxed. Owners exceptionally welcoming, our children fed the hand reared lambs. Lots of nice country walks around the reservoirs.Neil from Salisbury, Wiltshire - 22nd April 2017

Local Area

Stabal y Nant holiday cottage is located on a working farm set within the rolling hills of Mid Wales. The traditional market town of Welshpool with its canal, shops, restaurants and pubs is only 3 miles away whilst the nearest village of Guilsfield is also 3 miles and has 2 pubs. The farm has streams and woodlands in abundance and sustains rich and varied bird-life.

Enjoy fine walks around the farm and surrounding countryside and take full advantage of the fact that Glyndwr's Way National Trail passes within 500 metres of the cottage. Ride the steam train from Llanfair Caereinion to Welshpool or take the short drive to the stunning lake Vyrnwy, where you can try your hand at watersports and cycling or enjoy a leisurely walk and good lunch.

Portmeirion and the Mountains of Snowdonia offer great days out whilst pony treking and quad trekking are available locally. Other popular attractions include Llanrhaeadr Waterfall (the tallest in the UK), the Centre for Alternative Technology and King Arthur's Labyrinth.
