Whether you stay in one of our award winning 4* holiday cottages or opt for bed and breakfast in our comfortable, fully modernised, Grade II listed farmhouse, you'll find Cwmbiga is an ideal rural retreat and a great base for an outdoor activity holiday, a quiet or romantic break or a get together with friends and family.
Cwmbiga is a 60 acre smallholding and wildlife haven set in its own valley in the Hafren Forest and the Cambrian Mountains. The Clywedog Reservoir (renowned for its fly fishing) is nearby and we're only 9 miles from the lovely market town of Llanidloes. The Glyndwr's Way passes half a mile from us and we are 4 miles from the source of the Severn, the start of the Severn Way and the Wye Valley Walk. Cwmbiga is also on National Cycle Route 8, Lon Las Cymru. Pets and horses are welcome, by arrangement.
Self catering for up to 14 / B&B for up to 16 Video of cottages
If you are looking for a low impact, but very comfortable break in a lovely rural location with abundant wildlife, then our eco friendly cottages will fit the bill. The 4 star self catering cottages (sleeping up to 7 in each) are centrally heated, with a cosy wood burner for supplementary heat, modern and well equipped. If you wish, we can provide a freshly home cooked three course evening meal on the day of arrival or during your stay.
If you opt for bed & breakfast, our traditional Welsh farmhouse has been fully modernised, though we have retained a lot of the original features. We have one cosy and comfortable twin / king size room available in the farmhouse and we also accommodate B&B guests in rooms in the holiday cottages. If we use the cottages as an annexe, everyone can still eat, socialise and relax in the spacious conservatory attached to the farmhouse.
We serve both breakfast and evening meals in our lovely oak framed conservatory from which you can oversee the valley of the river Biga and watch the birds feed at the numerous feeders. Guests are also welcome to relax in the comfortable sofas in the conservatory. We are now licensed, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or Welsh beer with your meal.
Cwmbiga as a venue for Courses / Conferences & Training Events
The open plan design means that the cottages also provide a lovely venue for small conferences, meetings and training / team building events. The large conservatory attached to the main farmhouse is also available for such occasions and for the courses we run from Cwmbiga. For information about using Cwmbiga as a venue, click on the conferences / training venue link on the menu.
