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

Interaction with guests
Our aim is always to meet and greet our guests, this we manage 99% of the time and familiarise them with what we offer. A bottle of wine and 'something' homemade to eat is a standard extra. We include some maps and much information is available in the cabin plus tips on the 'must' visit local areas / places. We are on hand for advice / chats but equally we give you the maximum privacy if this is your choice. Most of the time we are gardening!!

About the neighbourhood
Our little hamlet has a single track road running for 4 miles from the Village of LANRHAEADR YM to the famous Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall . Riverside Retreat is 1.6 miles along this road in a valley and surrounded by sheep farms and woods which extend to the famous 240ft Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall. Very quiet private location in outstanding natural beauty with the River Rhaeadr flowing through our garden.
In season a charity second hand / new book stall,situated in owners lay -by 100yds from the top of our drive. The village has several eat in or take- aways.Stunning walks directly from the cabin up to and over the Berwen Mountains. Plenty of scenic drives. An abundance of birds and otters spotted swimming upstream outside of the cabin
Getting around
There are many walks from the cabin and others a short drive, park and then start your walk. The scenery is stunning.
