The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
If you want to get away from it all then Powys is a good place to start - the least densely populated county in England and Wales means the uninterrupted countryside that has disappeared from so many places remains almost untouched - it was here that the Red Kite hung on to eventually begin recolonisation of Wales and England and it is here that the BBC's SpringWatch sets up base camp annually due to the abundance of bird and wildlife (not to mention the friendly welcome and good beer)
Llanbrynmair is a small village with a friendly community , on the A470 road 12 miles east of Machynlleth. The village has a shop, pub and cafe with attached museum, soft play and bunny village.
35 minutes from the coast at Aberdyfi and 25 minutes from the edge of Snowdonia, Fronlwyd is a great location for exploring both MId-Wales and North Wales, being right on the border of both. It is also easily accessed from the Midlands, South Wales and the Bristol area and the NW of England. The area is renowned as a mountain biking mecca with many dedicated trails on the hills and forests. At the top of the valley is the Hafren forest and uplands of the Pulumon Fawr where the source of both the rivers Severn and Wye start. You can walk all day here without having to cross a road. To the South is the pretty market town of Llanidloes and to the West is historic Machnylleth - both have excellent cafes, art galleries and antique shops. There are also many visitor attractions in the area, including the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Modern Art Museum of Wales and Owain Glydwr's breakaway parliament building.

The shower, despite being less than a year old and still under warranty, turned out to be faulty and has now been replaced.

This is our second stay here but the first review. We stayed for a few days after Christmas in the lovely rustic cottage, complete with exposed beams & floorboards in the bedrooms and enoromous original flagstones in the large entrance hall with plenty of space for drying boots and coats after an afternoon walking. There's a nice big lounge for the cold evenings too.
Our kids are 2 and 4 and had a ball running around the gardens and in the woods next to the house - there's no traffic so its competely safe.
There are great views across to Pen Rhiw-myn from the house and back garden - the stars & mliky way are amazing on a clear night too. It's a great spot for exploring Snowdonia national park with walks and bridleways running from the front door, and good value. We'll definately stay again.

"Lovely cottage but miles from anywhere"
The cottage and the owners were lovely but it was a long way from anywhere which meant driving everyday. The only walks were up the road. Power out for 24 hours. Just 2 candles provided, no heat or co… More
Unfortunately we lost power during the storms in Feb 2014. Power was down for the whole area over night. When our guests returned in the evening we greeted them with our best torch and candles. When we returned a few minutes later with more tea lights these were declined as our guests had their own. We also offered to cook dinner for them on our fire but they chose not to take us up on the offer. The cottage is in a rural area, that is part of the charm. There is a map attached to the information about the cottage and we also advise that a car is preferable. There is also plenty of hill walking from the door, with many miles of public access land on the hills immediately above the cottage and we are always on hand to offer advice on where to go.
