Pen Y Clawdd

What to Expect

This purpose-built detached wooden cabin is one of two on a farm site and is an ideal rental for a family or group of friends, including a couple of well-behaved dogs, to enjoy a real rural retreat.

With views all around, the verandah especially presents unbroken views of the fields and shallow valleys which make up this part of the border between Wales and England. As an extra treat, there’s also a hot tub to help you enjoy the experience.

Explore the countryside on foot, including the Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, enjoy and buy some of the superb locally produced food and drink, and immerse yourselves in the history of this part of the UK, on both sides of the border.

Things To Do in Beggar's Bush

The hamlet of Beggar’s Bush sits in the rural countryside a short walk away from the cottage. From here, you can join a tributary of the River Lugg, which flows west towards the Welsh – English border.
Healthy and energetic people and dogs can explore the river banks, while a short drive in the same direction takes you to Presteigne, which is perfect for stocking up on local provisions as well as spending some quality time. Explore the cobbled streets hemmed in by black and white timbered houses, and pop into a tea room or pub for some refreshment. Don’t miss the Judge’s Lodging, a unique museum that preserves life in the 1870s.

Take a short drive north from Presteigne to Knighton, home of the Offa’s Dyke Association. Here you’ll find all the information you need to follow the Offa’s Dyke Path, a National Trail which hugs the border between Wales and England, named after the original earthwork which defined that border. The modern path stretches for hundreds of kilometres, so plan your day with the help of the Association.

Across the border is Ludlow, home of a medieval castle and with a matching street plan. Take a drive to Hay-on-Wye, a literary hotspot with its own annual festival, or discover the Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral. Back in Wales, people and dogs will love the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells, or spend a day shopping at the local capital of Llandrindod Wells, which has everything you could want for your holiday and afterwards.

Last Word

This holiday lodge has a lot to offer, from peace and quiet in the serene countryside (and a hot tub to make it really special), miles and miles of paths to walk, cycle and explore, centuries of history in the buildings and places up and down the Welsh border, superb local food and drink, and visitor attractions to suit young and old, including the dogs. The local hamlet is off the beaten track, while the site is strictly private, so you’re guaranteed a peaceful time. Once outside the site, everywhere from the local hamlet to the historic border town and beyond has something unique to recommend it.

If you’re looking for a healthy getaway, Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail is sure to satisfy, and the Association which manages it will make sure nobody gets lost or overtired. Thanks to the historic castles and towns all along the border, history buffs will be spoilt for choice.
At every step of the way, you can enjoy local hospitality, food and drink, including stocking up on the very highest quality provisions to enjoy on holiday or take back home.

For a countryside retreat with some exceptional add-ons, this dog-friendly cabin is sure to please you and all of your guests.
