We have just come back from our stay at Tynddol Bungalow and we loved it. Yes, it's a bungalow, so you are not getting an old quaint cottage with beams and a huge fireplace. But don't let that put you off, because Tynddol is lovely.
It is tastefully and comfortably furnished, light airy and with a pretty garden. The owner has really done it beautifully, and on all sides there are stunning views.
The position is gorgeous. It is right away from the road, with beautiful walks just by stepping through your garden gate. It would be particularly attractive to people with a young family, because it is enclosed and safe. So you can relax with a glass of wine and let the kids enjoy the garden, and the amazing wildlife.....kites, rabbits, otters, squirrels, pheasants and herons.
Also, it's not just suitable for families, we went as a couple, and loved the peace and tranquility and the having time together. A group of friends or two couples could also have a lovely time here
You have a pub nearby, serving perfectly acceptable pub grub, and a village shop. Don't expect the local area to have towns and villages with cute shops and restaurants, delis or posh frock shops. Radnorshire is truly unspoiled, and that is its charm. There is however a lovely W. H. Smiths in Newtown (amazing for the shop itself which is an original bookshop,) and an Oriel art gallery serving really good cakes and snacks.
Finally, don't forget your cossie....and don't knock it till you've tried it...... Tynddol has a hot tub, and I loved sitting there, glass in hand watching the red kites. So give this lovely holiday let, and this lovely unspoiled part of Wales a go. I think you'll be back.
