4-star Hideaway Self-catering Eco Holiday Cottage in mid-Wales

“We’ve stayed in lots of holiday cottages and there’s only a select few we would return to - this is one of them.”
— Emma and Danny, September 2019
‘The cottage is so beautiful and had everything we could have needed and so much more. We will definitely be making a return visit.
— Sharon and Sam - October 2019

Drovers Retreat is our converted stone barn eco holiday cottage in mid-Wales. It offers beautiful 4-star self-catering accommodation for up to four people - ideal for couples, families, nature-lovers, walkers, cyclists and dog-lovers.

Drovers Retreat lies above a medieval Drovers road, a few hundred yards from a Roman road - history and nature is all around in the unspoiled landscape. You can walk or cycle the green lanes, forest tracks and footpaths; or just relax and breathe the clear upland air. Red kites and buzzards circle above on the thermals with their evocative cries, whilst sheep graze in the fields below. Enjoy our own Drovers Woodland walk, where you and dogs can explore the regenerating wildlife area.

Relax and unwind at our secluded self-catering cottage, whilst still enjoying all the 4-star family luxury and conveniences you require. Then explore the local market towns and picturesque villages of the Welsh Borders- there’s more going on than you may think! 

This is Welsh Border Country at its natural, idyllic best.

“We are townies, have full busy lives where peace and quiet have to be intentionally sought. So here we have been able to step away, enjoy nature and let it restore a sense of peace.”
— Steve and Elaine September 2019
Everything was First Class and very much appreciated. We and dogs enjoyed every moment of our week’s holiday. The property is a real jewel. We will come again.
