Pentre Mawr description

Holiday home
Pentre Mawr is a detached farmhouse on the edge of Rhosgoch, near to Painscastle and Hay-on-Wye. The cottage can sleep up to eight people in two double bedrooms (one with an en-suite), two twin rooms which can both be made into super king-size doubles on request, plus a family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with a double sofa bed. Outside there is plenty of off road parking spaces available, along with a lawned garden with a patio and a private hot tub. Ideal for discovering the Welsh Marches and the Wye Valley, Pentre Mawr is a superb family holiday home.

The pretty village of Painscastle lies between the famous towns of Hay-on-Wye and Builth Wells, and takes its name from its ancient castle, where today only large earthworks remain. Standing only three miles from the England/Wales border, the village boasts a charming real ale inn and is surrounded by scenic countryside. Under six miles away is Hay-on-Wye.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The house was a great escape for me and my friends, it is such a lovely location and beautiful house. We walked to the local golf club for dinner one evening which was less than a mile away and has stunning views.

In a quiet rural location with lovely views. A spacious house with a very well equipped kitchen.

The dramatic location and the feeling of isolation was fantastic and the perfect antidote to city life. It was easy to get to all of the Brecon Beacons and the owner was very helpful in giving us tips of where to go. The space in the house was fantastic and felt very luxurious. The hot tub was a nice extra and was well used. The kitchen was particularly easy to use and very well equipped. The opportunity to light a fire in the garden was a lovely extra too.

Pentre Mawr was beautiful, tastefully decorated, warm and homely. It was also spotlessly clean. There was everything we could have needed and much more.

This was our second visit to this lovely farmhouse with everything you need. It is in a very quiet private location with stunning views.

Liked the rural retreat, quiet environment, and the wonderful house which had EVERYTHING we could have needed. The Jacuzzi was to die for, and the beds oh so comfy! The beautiful kitchen and open plan layout meant even when cooking dinner you weren't too far away from the chitter chatter of the group you're with. I would 100% recommend this place.

The house is beautiful, situated in a quiet area with lovely views and surroundings, very well equipped and stocked which was more than we expected. The rooms are spacious, cosy, very clean and well furnished stocked with everyone we needed - cutlery, crockery and cleaning products. The hot tub was a bonus and overall the weekend was a lovely, relaxing one, just what we wanted. We thoroughly enjoyed and would love to go back in the future.

A very relaxing cottage with beautiful scenic views. The cottage was amazing, very well designed and the owners have put a lot of thought into it. I would recommend this cottage and would return in the future.
