The Summer House overlooks our lush and beautiful garden, which is part of a permaculture smallholding with honey bees. Builth Road Station is a couple of minutes walk away. We have free parking if you drive. Close by are beautiful walks and further afield are the Brecons and the Elan Valley. Builth Wells is within walking distance with most facilities you could need. The space is small and cosy but light and airy. Good for couples and solo adventurers.

The space

The Summer House is perfect for a retreat although it is not totally secluded as we live on the out skirts of a small village which has some industry going on. But it feels very secluded and self contained in there with lovely views of the garden and surrounding mountains. It has a fitted carpet and curtains. There is a kettle and teas provided. The bed is a futon on the floor and it has a comfy sofa with cushions. The blankets and a down duvet will keep you warm but an electric heater is available if needed.

Guest access

Access to the house is available for use of toilet and bathroom. Bathroom facilities are very basic but clean, Short showers only as water is heated by wood burner and takes a while to heat up. Breakfast is muesli and/or Fruit with Almond or cows milk and/or toast. It is laid out on the table each morning for you to serve yourself. If you want a cooked breakfast you can bring your own ingredients and use the facilities but vegetarian only and wash up your own stuff. WiFi is available but you have to be in or near the house to get it and there will be other people around, so not much privacy and we're not keen on people having long internet calls in the shared space. You are welcome to be in the garden and on the land but we do sometimes have others staying and events happening. You will be informed of these upon booking.

Interaction with guests

We will generally be around although we do work away from the property at times and will let you know when we're not around.

Other things to note

You can hear the trains from the summer house but there are only 4 each way a day, either slowing down towards the station or speeding up from it. Most people say they like the sound of the trains and they don't run after about 9pm. The road (A470) can be heard although it isn't too loud generally. Sometimes there are sheep in the neighboring field. We have a number of hives of honey bees. Ear plugs are a good idea if you are a light sleeper.

If you are looking for peace and tranquillity in a lovely spot - this is perfect. Lots of communication and information from Philippa following the initial booking and we were given a warm welcome upon arrival. A heavenly spot in this lovely part of mid Wales, very conveniently placed for Builth. The summer house is homely and comfortable with access to facilities in the main house. Thank you Philippa and Clive for your warmth and hospitality. Xx

We had a fantastic stay. The cabin was what we had in mind. It was great experience to wake up in the morning and to see the lovely garden.Philippa and her partner were lovely.

When we arrived at Philippa and Clive's we well Warmley welcomed and they made it clear we were welcome and they were happy for us to be there. Philippa showed us round and made us feel settled. We unloaded the car and popped all our things in the summer house. It is nice and welcoming, friendly and comfy for two people to stop in. We chilled out and looked out onto the amazing garden and the beautiful scenery there is. There is a local pub just round the corner and another one just a short drive away or about a 15 minute walk away. We were very happy with the summer house and the facilities and how close it is to the shops, pubs and showground. They were both amazing hosts and both went that extra mile to make sure oue stay was perfect and to help us where ever they could. Very pleased.
