Ty Gwydr is an innovative, ultra modern take on the traditional countryside bolt-hole. You'll be impressed by the open plan kitchen with its ceiling to floor windows that look out over the surrounding mountains, as well as the comfortable, cosy bedrooms (one of which even houses a four poster bed). It's also very green, with ground source heating and efficient wool insulation. It was also painted using Ecological lime wash paints. Outside, there's a beautiful landscaped garden and decking, plus a private 8 person hot tub! There's also plenty of outdoor activities nearby, including Llangorse indoor climbing and rope centre, a couple of pony trekking centres and boating and water skiing on the lake.
It's hard to believe that Hen Glyn was once considered derelict. Having been restored using largely sustainable materials, this Grade II listed cottage now effortlessly combines the modern and the traditional, with original 18th century wooden beams and panelling decorating the otherwise contemporary interiors. Sleeping up to 4, this is also easily one of the best accommodations in the region for walkers; the farm has some 230 acres to explore, while countless way-marked routes start right on the doorstep. In the evenings, rest your weary legs in Hen Glyn's heated outdoor hot tub and gaze out over the surrounding hillside.
