Description

With exposed stonework and beams Hen Efail - Old Smithy is a semi-detached, characterful property with spacious rooms. There is a lovely living room with a cosy wood burner for relaxing by and two spacious bedrooms. Outside is a delightful suntrap courtyard garden with Welsh slate, great for enjoying a glass of wine in the summer. The small town of Tregaron has a friendly village atmosphere, and a short stroll will bring you to independent shops and the square with a pub and restaurant. Also standing on the square is a wood carving depicting Twm Siôn Cati, the legendary 17th century ‘Robin Hood of Wales’. Tregaron hosts the annual walking festival in May and an annual horse trotting and carriage racing event.
Cors Caron, or Tregaron Bog as it is also known is the largest raised bog in Britain and lies just outside the town. It provides a habitat for rare flora and fauna and is fantastic for wildlife spotting, including buzzards, peregrine falcons, harriers and iconic red kites. The beautiful Ceredigion coastline can be reached within 30 minutes’ drive and offers lovely beaches and interesting towns and villages to visit. The Cambrian Mountains are one of the few remote areas left in Southern Britain and Tregaron lies close to this wild open wilderness. The roads crossing the mountains are acknowledged as some of the most scenic routes in Britain. Shop, pub and restaurant 160 yards.

About the local area

For those who really want to escape it all then mid Wales is the place to go. Because of the vast mountain ranges in this area much of it is uninhabitable. However this does not stop it from being a beautiful place to visit.

The Cambrian Mountain range dominates and because it is often over looked due to the Snowdonian and Brecon Beacon ranges it is a secret just waiting to be discovered. Fish in one of the many reservoirs and rivers or bike up some of the challenging trails across the range.

Further to the east the towns of Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells both provide amenities for your day in the mountains. From here you can also travel to the Black Mountains in the South East or visit the neighbouring English border
