Nestled into the hillside and working with the natural landscape around it, this unique house celebrates the spectacular Powys countryside. The turf roof and low profile of the building make it as unobtrusive as possible, acting as a luxurious wildlife lookout. Huge bi-fold doors lining the front of the house mean you can enjoy the wonderful views from the comfort of your bed or the sofa. Or you can open the doors up to feel even closer to nature. Sit out under the stars in the hot tub late into the evening or run yourself a bath in one of the two roll-top bathtubs tucked away outside and soak up the views in complete tranquillity.
Inside, the space feels relaxing and modern with splashes of colour here and there chosen to complement the rich green of the surroundings. There are two luxurious double bedrooms on either side of the living area, both with floor to ceiling windows making the most of that spectacular view. There are two bathrooms, one is a wetroom with a huge rainfall showerhead and the other features a stylish pink roll-top bathtub. The bathrooms also have huge windows, so you can enjoy a shower or a relaxing dip in the bath while taking in the view.
The large open-plan living space features a kitchen, lounge and dining area. Open up the bi-fold doors and extend this space out onto the patio. In the evenings, light the fire pit and sit out as the sun sets. The stars will put on quite a show on clear nights with the Elan Valley Dark Sky Park just around the corner. You might also be treated by visits from some of the local wildlife, including badgers, deer, rabbits, buzzards and even red kites.
The location is perfect for keen walkers or those who just want to switch off from the hustle and bustle and reconnect with nature. There are walking trails which take you from the front door and out into the countryside. You could also explore the area on horseback or visit the red kite feeding station and see these amazing birds up close. The nearest pub and shop are a short drive away, so while you’ll be in complete seclusion at The Nest, you’ll have everything you need close to hand. If you want to venture a little further, Ludlow is about half an hour away and is a great place to find a restaurant and enjoy a meal out.
3 night weekends (Friday-Monday) between £790-£1100
4night mid week stays (mon-Friday) between £800-1100.

I booked the Nest for my husband's birthday and it didn't disappoint. It is beautiful place inside and out, surrounded by great open views and feeling very private. Our 8 year old loved it too and we all made full use of the hot tub (which was always at the perfect temperature!). Thanks for a great stay!

What a unique, amazing retreat. The facilities and attention to detail are second to none. We made full use of all the individual features including the outside baths. Oh, and the views! With red kites and buzzards flying overhead. Also had a visit from a personal chef to prepare a 3 course Lunch for my husband's 60th birthday. We will definitely return, thank ????

What a fabulous location! The Nest is amazing, the decor is what you'd want in your own home and the views are stunning. We had such a great time, the quirky features like the outdoor baths are cool and it's a great location for star gazing, we even saw a meteor and the Milky Way. Love the hot tub and chilling in the indoor bath with the views was so relaxing, even spotted a few rabbits at the window. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
