Property code: 77923

There are  50 acres of land to explore within the farm with so much to discover including woods, streams and beautiful views. The National Trust common land surrounding you is free to roam so you can enjoy views of the Brecon Beacons without the climb. There are also plenty of activities in the local area, with a pony trekking centre nearby - the friendly guides will lead you up over the Begwns on horseback for a morning, or nip over the other side of the hill and discover the canoe hire and adventure training centres, offering everything from a quick hour on the River Wye, to a Vespa ride up into the Black Mountains, bicycle hire to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park, or a test of nerve on the high wire ropes. Hay-on-Wye, just 5 miles away, is famous for its international book festival, a fine selection of pubs and restaurants and an art house cinema where you can relax and step back in time.

The accommodation is nestled into the hillside across a meadow and babbling stream. Sympathetically landscaped, the stone bothy sits within a raised terrace. Guests are assured of complete privacy at all times. The bothy is completely off-grid; step inside and enjoy the natural light that pours in from the large leaded windows. The living space is open plan and finished with natural materials and classic colours and includes a small kitchen area with Belfast sink and wooden work tops, cooking meals is done on the wood-burning stove. A dining table and chairs are set by the window for you to enjoy the views. For relaxing, a cosy sofa fronts the wood burning stove,  where you can curl up and relax. For lighting, a selection of oil burning lamps will provide soft lighting for a cosy evening. A small ladder gives access to the mezzanine bedroom where you can enjoy a peaceful night’s rest within the eaves, with soft linen and Welsh blankets. For bathing, there is a covered terrace with a claw-foot bath where you can relax and enjoy the stars. A composting WC is situated up a stepped pathway from the terrace.

Please note the property is off grid and so has no electricity, mobile signal or wi-fi. All cooking is done on the wood burner.

The simple landscape of the grounds blend into the surrounding countryside; relax in the wood-fired hot tub for two and enjoy the skies overhead, or simply relax with a good book whilst enjoying afternoon tea.

Simple perfection. A truly magical experience hidden away in the woods, and one that we will cherish forever - our favourite place we've stayed in the UK. It offers a chance for you to revert back to your primal roots and reconnect with nature. You cannot fault this place; we loved it's proximity to Hay-On-Wye, the build design and interior decor, Read morethe luxury comforts even though you're off grid and how fire is everything; warmth, light, your oven and bath. We did not want to come back to reality. Hide

Quite possibly the most romantic cottage I have ever stayed in. Everything was just perfect from start to finish. The location is totally off grid and it felt like heaven to be away from reality for a weekend. A Magical stay.

Ty Bach is the perfect place to reset, recharge and relax in the stunning scenery of Wales. You quickly adapt to the rhythm of the cottage and living off grid, we have come home utterly in love with the Begwyns and beautiful Ty Bach. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a holiday as much.

The cottage is located on the owners farm but away in a corner in between trees so you really do feel completely private. We spent a weekend flitting between the jacuzzi and the sofa in front of the fire reading books and didnt leave the place at all. It was heaven. The compost loo certainly takes some getting used to (the breeze!!) but not too badRead more. Otherwise it has everything you need for cooking and all towels etc. We are planning our next trip to this special place. Hide

This is a very special little cabin in a beautiful setting! It is off grid but has everything you need to be comfortable and even enjoy some incredible luxuries like a hot bath or hot tub outside under the stars. Just a wonderful place to spend time, slow down and connect with the land and people around you.

I have stayed in a lot of cottages and cabins around the U.K. - I have to say, for a couples retreat Ty Bach was absolutely stunning. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel really comfortable. Whilst on the grounds of the farm, Ty Bach is so secluded and private. The scenery is stunning and the stream through the garden is gorgeous to fall asleepRead more to. Dont be afraid of the off grid nature, it was so nice not looking at a phone for 3 nights! It is so well equipped too! Big thank you to Sarah! Hide
