Llanidloes

Bwthyn y Biga is set on a 60 acre smallholding and wildlife haven, within its own valley in the Hafren Forest and the Cambrian Mountains. The nearest towns are Llanidloes (9 miles) and Machynlleth (15 miles). Both market towns have all the necessary amenities, including a variety of independent shops and local produce markets.

Just a short walk up the valley, Wales and the UK’s longest river (the Severn) begins as well as the Wye (the fifth longest). The associated long distance footpaths, the Wye Valley Walk and the Severn Way also begin here, not to mention the national trail of Glyndwr's Way that passes half a mile from the cottage. For the cyclists out there you will be very pleased that the cottage is also on a national cycle path (Lôn Las Cymru - Sustrans Route 8) and close to the Hafren Forest Trail. If you're looking for a countryside retreat to enjoy a cycling or walking holiday, you probably couldn't find anything that's more perfect than this.

Bwthyn y Biga enjoys a lovely setting within the Cambrian Mountains, very near to Pumlumon and surrounded by the famous Hafren Forest which covers about 40 square kilometres. The beautiful Clywedog Reservoir, renowned for its fishing and sailing, is only a mile away.

Alternatively, you can visit the Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust and RSBP reserves, or Snowdonia National Park which is only 15 miles from the cottage. And if you fancy a little change sometime during your cycling or walking holiday, Wales also offers some stunning Narrow Gauge Train rides, many of which are just a short journey from your cottage. Or if you’re looking for shopping and culture, then the lovely coastal town of Aberystwyth is only 30 miles away with its famous Arts Centre. Though if you want to just play by the sea then the beautiful beaches of unspoilt Aberdyfi (25 miles) take some beating.

Other popular visitor attractions nearby include clay pigeon shooting in Trefeglwys, the Forest Experience Rally School, the Yamaha Offroad Experience, the Owain Glyndwr Centre, the Centre for Alternative Technology, and watching red kites being fed at Gigrin Farm.
