Riverside Retreat is the perfect romantic setting and only 2 miles from the famous 240ft Waterfall which is set in the beautiful county of Powys.The cabin nestles in a valley with the River Rhaeadr flowing mmediately outside it and can be seen from all windows. The newly constructed jetty ( gated for safety) immediately outside the cabin has now been extended due to its popularity. A beautiful rattan double day bed, partly enclosed and partly with curtains is the ultimate in relaxation / sunbathing/ eating out. In 2015 we created an under cover entertainment area housing a full size table tennis table, half size pool / billiards, a table for Lego, painting ,sand pit and an assortment of indoor toys for those with children, especially on wet days. At the far end of our garden ( guests are encouraged to wander through the 2 acre garden ) we have created a rustic area with its own small BBQ /fire-pit, great for toasting marshmallows on sticks! A touch of Swallows and Amazons for children aged 2 - 92!We provide a fire- pit / BBQ, outdoor blankets ( for those chilly evenings ), a super lava gas BBQ for instant cooking outside. For guests wishing to escape the pressures of life it is the perfect ,private , location. Unwind and relax by the sound and view of the river or for those hardy enough, to play in the river, a rubber dinghy is also available (the force/ height of the river permitting).Wi- Fi and TV, are provided with a selection of DVDs , board games and a few books.We are 1.6 miles from the village which can cater for your every need.There is an excellent butcher, fish and chips ( second to none) post office, ATM, paper shop, food stores x2 both open until 10pm and 2 pubs offering food.
