Step back in time and experience the ultimate relaxing break, recharging your batteries with a 'digital detox'. Explore the great outdoors, with stunning countryside views and beautiful walks nearby. Enjoy quality time indoors in this historic property, with books, music, games or a sociable family meal. Cosy up to the fire in the sitting room or by the old range in the farmhouse kitchen, safe in the knowledge that the house now also has central heating, double glazing and plenty of hot water - but no TV, no WiFi, no mobile phones to disturb your holiday.

Cwmwr Uchaf is a detached farmhouse, originally built as a hunting lodge in 1625, retaining many original features and sitting in an elevated position surrounded by sheep-grazing farmland, overlooking hills, valley and stream. The property is not entirely secluded (a converted barn property stands nearby), but is peacefully located, 1.75 miles from the village of Penybontfawr, which has a village shop/PO and a pub.
