We used to rent our home on AirBnB : solid 5 star reviews! Put it back on but lost the ratings...
Our family home is a detached 17th century farmhouse, in a beautiful part of mid-Wales, surrounded by wooded farmland and rolling open countryside. Dine alfresco in the pretty garden or sit in the conservatory with a cup of tea while watching the abundance of wildlife in the surrounding fields. You might even spot a rare osprey soaring above.
This detached 17th century farmhouse stands in a beautiful part of mid-Wales, surrounded by wooded farmland and rolling open countryside. Perfect all year round for families or groups of friends. Dine alfresco in the pretty garden, out on the deck or in the conservatory with a cup of tea while watching the abundance of wildlife in the surrounding fields. You might even spot a rare osprey soaring above. As the sun sets, snuggle up in front of the wood-burning stove and choose from the collection of board games, books and DVDs.
Tyn Yr Wtra is bursting with character, with oak beams and doors, oak and quarry tile floors and an impressive inglenook fireplace. The cottage was built around 1630 when Charles I was just beginning his doomed reign of Britain. Perhaps our predecessors at Tyn Yr Wtra fought for the King in the Battle of Montgomery, just 6 miles away in 1644, the biggest battle fought in Wales during the civil wars.
Inside are four bedrooms: 1 x king-size double with en-suite shower, basin and WC, 1 x twin, 1 x double, 1 x ground floor double. Bathroom with bath, shower over, bidet, basin and WC. Ground floor basin and WC. Fitted kitchen with woodburning stove, dining area and pantry. Utility. Sitting room with woodburning stove. Conservatory with informal dining area.
Gardens: Tyn Yr Wtra is a garden lover’s paradise. The borders are stocked with a huge variety of plants and there is an abundance of fruit, from apples in the orchard, to raspberries, peaches, currants and tiny-but-delicious alpine strawberries scattered amongst the foliage.
Eco-credentials: Our aim at Tyn Yr Wtra is to be as sustainable as possible. And at the cottage you’ll be very close to living ‘off-grid’, with water from our private spring, solar electricity and hot water, wood-fired central heating and hot water, with as much wood as possible from the cottage’s own land. For total ease there’s also oil fired heating and hot water – you’ll never need to be without toasty radiators and a nice warm bath!

We'll be asking guests to please open the door to the chicken coop in the morning and close it up again before dark. Also, we have a lovely friendly cat called Shadow - please give her a scoop of food every morning! Beyond that she looks after herself.
Please also note that this is our family home, and has a real family feel. It's not a sanitised hotel, and it is rustic and rough around its beautiful edges.
- No shoes in the house

- No candles in the house
- Always follow instructions for the woodburners
- Please don't go out onto the deck via the kitchen french doors - there are no steps yet!

I'm 39, living in London and trying to sort life so I can get to Wales and live in Tyn Yr Wtra cottage with my lovely partner and our 2 year old son. Until then, the cottage is here for you on AirBnB!
I like my football, cheese, internet, etc. Nothing too original there.
I love being at the cottage, exploring the hills and mountains, playing board games in front of the fire. All good.
