Court Cottage is a traditional Welsh cottage which was extended three years ago. It is nestled in the heart of a tiny hamlet called Glascwm, which lies in a verdant valley in Radnorshire.
About Court Cottage
The house itself has the following accommodation:
Boot-room / utility room, with downstairs bathroom off (WC, basin, bath with electric shower over).
Living area, with stone walls, slate floor, comfy sofas and a log burning fire.
Dining room, with slate floor, & pitched ceiling.
Modern kitchen / breakfast room, with east-facing floor-to ceiling windows & patio door which opens out onto the adjoining patio.
Upstairs, we have a double bedroom, a bunk bedroom, a single bedroom (with additional z-bed if required) and another bathroom (WC, basin, bath with shower over).
Outside, there is a a small, pretty cottage garden at the front, a steep sloping garden to the rear, and an adjacent field / orchard area (big enough and flat enough for a game of badminton with the kids). Immediately outside the kitchen is an east-facing patio area so that you can enjoy al fresco dining and lovely views to the hills.
Glascwm is a tiny hamlet comprising about a dozen houses and a church. There is NOTHING ELSE here, so this is not a place for those who need a pub or shop on the doorstep
About the Area
This is a walker's paradise: the hills which surround the cottage are criss-crossed by drovers' trails. The nearest 'A' road is nearly 4 miles away as the crow flies, so there will be nothing to disturb you except the ever-present noise of sheep, skylarks and the odd grouse.
For the more adventurous, this is also excellent mountain-biking and horse-riding territory.
The famous book town of Hay on Wye lies about 10 miles to the south, and Builth Wells, with its Royal Welsh Showground, lies about 10 miles to the west. There are some good local pubs, which serve quality food and excellent beer.
