Description

Riverside Retreat is a perfect romantic setting only 2 miles from the famous 240ft Waterfall and set in the beautiful county of Powys.The cabin nestles in a valley with the River Rhaeadr passing immediately outside it and can be seen from all windows. The newly constructed jetty ( gated for safety) immediately outside the cabin is to be extended this spring ( 2016 ) 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
