With a charming, open-plan living area and impressive vaulted ceiling, this property has a cosy wood-burning stove and French windows leading to an attractive, decked area – making this a great property in both winter and summer.

This stone and timber clad barn conversion is a wonderful 19th Century property set in the owner’s 14-acre smallholding on the edge of the rural village of Llanafan Fawr. Just six miles from Builth Wells, this cottage has been expertly renovated to provide the perfect blend of original features and modern amenities with one double bedroom. For those looking to holiday with their horse, the owner of this property offers on-site stabling facilities, making it an ideal base for anyone looking to trek through the nearby mountains.


Very well maintained property for a couple
Booked online, as pictured but it is next to owners property. Owners friendly and unobtrusive. Maintained to high standard. Summerhouse not as pictured (foliage growth meant it was rather shaded down there). We used it as a base for touring around Mid & West Wales for which it was ideally suited. Good space for a couple. Bathroom excellent. Overall, very satisfied and would readily consider booking again.

This was our second holiday at Cwm Derw and we will return. It was a home from home with caring hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Our previous comment of 'perfectly perfect' still holds true.
Mr Pretorius

It was a beautiful cottage set in beautiful surroundings. A perfect place for relaxing with wonderful views.
Mr Banks

The cottage was wonderful with everything we needed. The location was excellent with lovely views over the countryside and lots of wildlife. The owners were very friendly and had lots of advice about the local area to help us enjoy our holiday even more. We look forward to visiting again.
Mr Jackson
