Riverside Retreat is a new venture for Marian and Brian set in the beautiful county of Powys. The chalet has been tastefully refurbished during 2013 and is situated beside the river Rhaeadr which flows through a valley stretching from the Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall to the village of Llanrhaeadr. It is in a tranquil position set in the grounds of the owners 1.5 acre beautiful garden with woods to the rear and side. The large picture window at the end of the chalet overlooks the river and woods. A newly constructed GATED jetty overhangs the river, perfect to relax and enjoy breakfast to the music of the babbling river and birdsong. Outside is a further decked covered veranda and a courtyard, tables,chairs,sun loungers, and a very comfortable hanging/swinging wicker chair.

All catching the sun from dawn until dusk.

The grounds which visitors are welcome to stroll through have been sympathetically landscaped and boast complete river frontage. There are several areas to sit, including a romantic candlelit gazebo. Relax and watch the river flow, or read, paint, fish for brown trout or just paddle in the river.

The chalet can cater for up to four adults. The bedroom has a very comfortable 5ft double bed with an electric under blanket for winter guests and a double sofa bed in the sitting room area. The kitchen is fully fitted, with a gas hob electric oven, good size fridge with ice-box, microwave, cafetiére and toaster. Concealed under the worktop is a fold-down table and chairs. The modern bathroom has an electric shower, electric water heater over sink, and electric heated towel rail.

The chalet is warm and cosy with a wall mounted electric flame effect fire in the sitting area and thermostatically controlled electric panel heaters with timers in both the bedroom and living area.

Outside on the veranda in a partially enclosed area with a washing machine and hanging space for drying clothes. There is also hanging space for outdoor clothing and boots plus shelving to store rucksacks, fishing tackle etc.

The chalet is ideal for those who love walking several glorious walks directly from the chalet. Alternatively you may just want to relax in the suntrap courtyard/ chill by the river and daydream.

Thank you for taking the trouble in writing a review for Riverside Retreat. We do appreciate it. We are very pleased with your response to the newly constructed jetty and have since added a gate and a rail for added safety for younger guests.
We also have a fire pit for those chilly evenings or use as a charcoal BBQ to compliment the gas BBQ.
Not long now before your addition arrives, so just maybe we will see you again in the near future. Re the directions to find us if there is someway to improve those we send please let us know.

DearChris and Danielle,

Thank you both for a wonderful review. We do appreciate you taking the time and trouble to write your comments as it helps prospective clients decide if what we can offer is right for them. We are so glad Riverside Retreat gave you both what you were looking for in a retreat. We are constantly upgrading the facilities and since your stay we have constructed a jetty going out over the river and measuring at its widest point 10ft x 12 ft which in part overhangs the river. It is a wonderful area to have breakfast as it catches the early morning sun, and a great place at trying your hand at catching small brown trout. Photos to be added ASAP.

We hope you will return one day.
Best Wishes

Marian and Brian
