  The Detail...

Known as the hovering house, Ty Hedfan is a unique and luxurious hideaway sits above the River Ysgir near Brecon. You can relax and unwind surrounding by plenty of natural beauty, enjoying the stunning modern design of this amazing holiday home set in the Welsh hills.

This truly unique property sleeps up to six people across three double bedrooms and a single. Two of those bedrooms sit on the lower ground section of Ty Hedfan and have French doors that open out onto decked areas that overlook the river. Both have en-suite bathrooms. Also on this level - which is accessed via steps from the main section of the house - is the playroom or snug with wood burning stove, which is a lovely spot to cuddle up with a loved one after a day exploring.

The other two bedrooms are found on the upper level, with the double having an en-suite bathroom. The lounge perches on the ground floor above the river itself and boasts the best views in the house with two of its walls being made of glass. Comfy sofas sit around the flat screen TV and a roaring log fire to ensure it is both versatile and cosy. The large kitchen is fully equipped, has an island, and is accompanied by a dining area with table and chairs.

Ensuring Ty Hedfan, while striking in its design, fitted in with its surroundings was hugely important during its creation. Which is why it is a sustainable building, with solar panels, living green roofs, heat pumps, and water recycling included to help ensure that.

The surroundings offer some of the finest hill countryside in the United Kingdom. Those staying can explore mid-Wales on foot, mountain bike, or canoe with several treks and routes on offer. There are also climbing and fishing opportunities. After that why not head to the local gastropub, The Griffin at FelinFach, for good food and drink? The excellent Hardwick, Y Polyn, and Walnut Tree restaurants are also close by.

Brecon itself is only five miles away, as is the amazing Brecon Beacons National Park. Hay-on-Wye is also on the doorstep and is home to the famous Hay Literary Festival, while both have a number of markets, independent shops, cafes, and pubs to discover and enjoy.
