At the foot of the Cambrian mountains next to the Elan Valley lakes and the river Wye. A stunning natural landscape with spectacular scenery away from the rush and noise of modern life.
Hidden in a quiet cul-de-sac on the edge of St.Harmon village Ty Coed is secluded but with the security of having a few neighbours.
The area is largely undiscovered. Our first time guests are amazed that they have never heard of this area before but always come back again to discover the endless trails, wildlife and breathtaking views.
Come and discover the magic !
