Nature is at your doorstep. The four-sided courtyard with an old ash tree at its centre is a wonderful sun trap. Two large picnic tables make this a perfect place for Barbecues or evening drinks. You are surrounded by fields on all sides and wildlife is all around - hares, woodcock, hedgehogs, robins and red kites. Just take a seat and watch their show. Or head down the field to Offa's Dyke and walk up into the hills, or down to the river and Hay-on-Wye.

Just so you know..

We make sure that you have all the kitchen essentials you need to start your holiday. These include - tea, coffee, salt, pepper, sugar, tin foil, washing up liquid, laundry detergent, loo paper...

Cwm Pelved is heated by an oil fired boiler - along with two wood burning stoves. We'll provide a couple of baskets of seasoned wood from the Cabalva Estate and the fire will be lit for your arrival if its chilly.  If you run out we can provide more wood at no charge.

The house is at the end of a long drive which is not suitable for low vehicles or sports cars.
