The 4-star self-catering accommodation can sleep up to four guests and is just waiting to embrace those looking for an escape to the forest. Embedded in the unspoiled rural Welsh landscape, Drovers Retreat has all the feel of an off-grid getaway while only sitting a few yards away from the medieval Drovers road and within a short reach of some of the Welsh Borders’ most historic market towns. With the forest on your doorstep, you won’t be able to resist the lure of forest tracks and green lanes ready to be explored by foot or bike. Spot Roe Deer emerging from the oak wood, listen to the sound of birdsongs and have your binoculars at the ready to spot red kites and buzzards riding the thermals above – Drovers Retreat is a sanctuary for the best of British wildlife. The Drovers Woodland Walk is a testament to Drovers Retreat’s hallmark green quality as this secluded woodland valley steeped in a long history of excavation is now being claimed back by nature. Powered by renewable energy sources, supplied with water from its very own spring, and kitted out with a log burner fuelled by firewood harvested from the local farm, Drovers Retreat is the epitome of sustainable tourism – and it doesn’t compromise on style or comfort either. With a thoughtful interior design that pays homage to its Welsh heritage and rich surrounding landscape, the Grade II listed cottage tells a story of Drovers Retreat’s past that keeps it firmly grounded in its rural roots. Period features, wooden beams, and original flagstones are enriched by the convenience of contemporary living through modern enhancements like the skylight, electric hob, and games barn to make your stay both charming and fulfilling. The homely touches don’t stop at the furnishings…on arrival you’ll receive a welcome pack consisting of homemade cake or flapjack, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, and locally made apple juice – there’s no stone unturned when it comes to the hospitality of this humble cottage. As for things to do at Drovers Retreat, you won’t be disappointed. The adjoining games hut stationed in the original stone and timber barn is home to a snooker table, table football, and dartboard so you can have some indoor fun if the weather is against you. There’s plenty of outdoor space to soak up the sunlight peeking through the trees when the weather is fine and there are some wonderful clear sky views of the stars at night as the official Dark Sky area at Elan Valley is within touching distance.
