Location description from owner

The Wales region

Y Rhosyn Cottage is located at the end of a small row of 3 cottages in the peaceful Teme Valley. The market town of Knighton is 6 miles in one direction while Newtown is 14 miles in the other direction. The nearest pub, along with the nearest shop that stocks a range of locally sourced items and essentials is only 2 miles away.

Knighton know as 'Tref y Clawdd' in Welsh and that translates as Town on the Dyke. This explains its location on the Welsh-English border. In fact there are a few streets in the town that are actually in England. The town has several interesting places to eat and also has 4 tea shops. Knighton has one of the best preserved sections of the dyke, that in total 176 miles from the Severn Estuary in the South to Prestatyn in the North. Originally designed as a huge earth work to mark the border between the 2 countries is it now one of Britain's longest trails and a favourite with walkers.

We recommend The Radnorshire Arms in Beguildy (2 miles) and The Castle Inn at Knucklas (4 miles) if you're looking for great local pubs and great places to eat. Also worth a mention are The Waterdine restaurant at Llanfair Waterdine and The Lloyney Inn at Lloyney.

The cottage is around 30 miles from both Builth Wells and Hay on Wye, making it a convenient place to stay when visiting either the Royal Welsh Show or the Hay Literature Festival.

The area is fantastic for walkers are there are many walks, trails and path to be enjoyed including walks directly from the cottage. For families there is also The Offa's Dyke Centre in Knighton that is the hub for many activities on the Dyke and also includes a skate park and children's play area.

Mid Wales

Golf
Designed by 6 Times British open Champion Harry Vardon Knighton Golf Course is a 9 hole hillside course with great views. 6 miles

Bird Watching
Many birds visit the garden and the red Kites soaring above are a great site. There is also a Red Kite feeding Centre in the Elan Valley that is worth a visit. 30 miles

Horse Riding
Trekking and rides available at Pen y Bont with many different routes through the surrounding countryside. 12 miles

Walking
From the cottage you can join the trail to the Beacon Hill Nature Reserve and Offa's Dyke can be joined nearby 0.4 miles

Cycling
Great road cycling on quiet country lanes from the cottage also bike can be hired.

The Rhayader round Mountain Biking trails suit all levels and distances including 2 of the best downhill MTB trails in the UK. 30 miles.

Fishing
The River Teme at the bottom of the garden is quite noted for its barbell fishing downstream but also holds stocks of wild brown trout and has a salmon run. Day tickets can be purchased.
