    Pippins was converted in 1999 from a former granary, and is set in 14 acres of pastureland overlooking the Ithon Valley, at the foot of Castle Bank, the site of the ruined Norman Cefnllys Castle. The cottage is adjacent to the owners own Grade II listed residence, which dates back to the 17th century.
    Pippins has an ‘upside-down’ living arrangement and has been lovingly furnished by the owners. The open-plan upstairs living room and kitchen area overlooks the surrounding hills, making the most of the wonderful views. Downstairs there are two bedrooms (one with en-suite facilities), and an additional shower room.
    Guests will appreciate the private garden overlooking the open countryside, with access to a public right of way leading down the hill to the 13th-century Cefnllys church. This is on the banks of the River Ithon, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, where you can cross the Shaky Bridge to Bailey Einon Nature Reserve. This is superb walking country, and is accessible straight from the doorstep. Red kites and buzzards can regularly be seen soaring over the land. Visitors to Pippins are welcome to wander over the owners’ land, taking in the far-reaching views.
    A pub serving food can be found in Penybont just 2½ miles away, and Llandrindod Wells, approximately 15 minutes by car, has all the usual amenities of pubs, restaurants and local shops, together with the bonus of two large supermarkets. The magnificent Elan Valley is just over half an hour’s drive away, with a 9-mile traffic free path, stunning scenery and a fascinating visitor centre, café and a variety of events all year round. The surrounding area has long been famed for rare and beautiful wildlife, and the International Dark Sky Park status of the Elan Valley makes it an ideal place to view the moon, planets and stars, and sometimes you can get a superb view of the International Space Station.
    Devil’s Bridge and waterfalls, the Vale of Rheidol steam railway and the coast at Aberystwyth are around an hour away by car.
    Immerse yourself in the fantastic and fascinating area, and make Pippins your home from home whilst you enjoy a well deserved break. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pippins as a fantastic base for exploring Wales. A beautifully kept property owned by a pleasant, friendly family. Our only slight negative was having to drive a little to reach somewhere to eat out. Otherwise perfect.

    We had a fantastic holiday at Pippins. The cottage was so clean, cosy and homely. The hosts greeted us on our arrival and showed us around. They've thought about everything in the cottage. The surrounding areas were so peaceful and quiet. The welcome pack was a big bonus. Our boy couldn't get enough of the lovely homemade brownies! Thank you very much for having us. We highly recommend it.

    It's a very lovely place. I spent two weeks there with my dog to retreat and rest. Pippins did the trick. The family who own the property are friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend. It was an added bonus to see a family of Badgers who come to the Owners house next door for a handful of nuts each night.

    This cottage is beautifully presented to a very high standard. It is located in the middle of the countryside and takes dogs, yet it was still spotless on our arrival. In my opinion it is hotel quality. The owners live in the neighbouring farmhouse and are super friendly and helpful but not intrusive. They very generously allowed us to make use of all their surrounding land and have provided picnic benches for visitors to enjoy the fantastic views. They even provide a dog tag with their contact details for your dog to wear for the duration of your stay. There are fantastic walks right on the doorstep. We walked cross country to the local town, Llandrindod Wells. This was our second stay at Pippins and we intend to visit again. The only slight downside is the wi-fi was not good enough for us to stream on, but we could download from it.

    An extremely well converted barn - with all necessary inclusions. The owner had kindly sent us a complete list of everything that was provided which was very helpful. Immaculately clean throughout. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a remote location but with good access to surrounding areas including the west Wales coast this is where you should book. We would highly recommend "Pippins"

    Fabulous cottage in an idyllic location with walking from the door. Immaculately clean and everything you could want from a holiday home. Superb weather for our short 4 night break. Extremely dog friendly, with everything from towels to a name tag with the holiday cottage details on for your dog, a very thoughtful touch. The owners were friendly yet respectful of our privacy. We’ll definitely be back. We have had an amazing few days ?

    Extremely well equipped and lovely quiet location. Wi fi flaky but we knew that so cannot complain. Went to get away from hustle, noise and fireworks (for the dog) of New Year and it did not disappoint.

    A truly delightful property in a most tranquil setting. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and it had a good variety of utensils and equipment. There was a good sized enclosed garden for the dog. Would definitely return and recommend.
