Carno, Powys, Wales
Blaenglanhanog brings together many of the features that you would expect from a cottage holiday in Wales - dog friendly, wifi, wood burner, beautiful secluded setting and even homemade cooking available on request. This 250 year old Drover’s farmhouse is set 1000ft up in the Cambrian Mountains near the “Laura Ashley” village of Carno (good local shop, post office, church & pub). Look out for those red kites, explore the Hafren Forest, visit Clywedog Reservoir and Dam and the beautiful market towns of Mid Wales.
