Video Tour


Walking and mountain biking from the doorstep most often centres around the Glyndwrs Way, an excellent national trail which passes through Brandy House Farm. Richard and Medina have excellent knowledge of the surrounding routes and can help walkers, cyclers or equestrians alike in their planning, they also have a handy route portfolio waiting for you. For the most immediate exploration, either walk up onto Beacon Hill Crown Estate from your door step or stroll into the village (5 minutes away) to join the footpaths on the Shropshire side of the border. Beacon Hill, a 6000 acre upland nature reserve, is an excellent place to see wildlife. The heath clad landscape attracts birds like the nesting Wheatear, Meadow Pipit, Stonechat, Merlin and Peregrine, among others. It's wild without being rugged and an excellent place to begin walking in the area. Cyclists will find great XC riding on the doorstep and easy journeys to several world class mountain bike centres with freeride, downhill and uplift facilities. The area hosts MTB enduro and the Autumn Epic, One of Britain's top rated Cycle Sportives. For something a little less energetic try exploring Powys Castle, 20 miles away, The Hall at Abbey-Cwm-Hir, 20 miles, or Judges Lodging Presteigne, 18 miles away.

Food & Drink

If you prefer not to cook then it is possible to book a campers breakfast brought to your pod or caravan.  The Wharf, local village pub ideal for a drink is just 5 minutes walk away but doesn't serve food.  The Radnorshire Arms, Beguildy (01547 510634), 2 miles away, is the nearest pub serving food, a wonderfully old building that is home to friendly service and good food.  Beguildy also has a lovely traditional village shop.

Truly Amazing Stay in Wild Rose Caravan

We had the pleasure of staying at Brandy House Farm August Bank Holiday Weekend, it was last minute as we had been let down by another company, whilst searching the property came up with availability for the Wild Rose Vintage Caravan. I have to the say the entire weekend was fantastic and relaxing and the hosts were extremely helpful, we had breakfast one morning in the B&B and it was plentiful and set us up for our day of mountain hiking Pen Y Fan and Corn Du (an hour away). A must if you love mountain hiking, the views were totally breathtaking. Now about the accommodation as I said earlier we stayed in the vintage caravan, it was lovely and quirky, having a double bed which was very comfy, it also had a seating area inside, plenty of cupboard space, a kettle and a fridge, plenty of electrical points to charge up your devices. It had a towel rail and heater too, not that we needed those but there all the same if you need them, towels were also included. Outside there was a cooking area (undercover) which lit up at night, a great area for storing your boots etc too, there was a little bench outside on the wooden decking, also there was a table and two chairs outside and we hired the fire pit, well worth it after a busy day, relax and watch the stars. The caravan was nestled away in its own private area, so you felt that it was very private, overlooking the welsh valleys. There was a bunk house /barn too where you could make meals etc and get some WIFI if needed as theres no signal there obviously didn't expect there to be, in addition there is a shower and toilet room, with one toilet and one shower, but we never had to wait when we needed to use the facilities, also in there is a washing machine and tumble dryer if you need to use them too. The site is off the beaten track there is a pub in beguidly about a mile or so away and the food there was also excellent (highly recommend) but you do need to book, Richard the owner did that for us, you can of course book evening meal at the B&B if you want, we didnt but I believe that it was only £20 pp for a three course meal and our neighbors who had this informed us that the food was great. A beautiful site to stay, and we would go back in a heartbeat, they have glamping pods, and cottages too, one with a hot tub and of course the B&B so a wide choice of accommodations, but we really loved wild rose. Highly Reccomend!

Getting There

If you are approaching from Knighton, turn up a sharp left as you pass the speed limit sign on reaching the village, opposite the village sign (please note that the Brandy House is not signed). Continue up the lane over the two cattle-grids and Brandy House Farm is at the top about 150 metres from the main road.

If you are approaching from Newtown, leave on the A483 (signed Llandrindod Wells) to Dolfor. Turn left onto the B4355. Go through the village of Felindre and as you leave it, turn up to your right just before the end of speed limit sign (please note that the Brandy House is not signed). Continue up the lane over the two cattle-grids and Brandy House Farm is at the top about 150 metres from the main road.

If you are using a sat Nav or google maps and are approaching from the North they will more than likely take you the shorter scenic route through tiny and steep lanes missing out. For a more direct route we would recommend you go to Newtown and follow the directions above!

Knighton (0845 748 4950) is the nearest train station 9 miles away or Newtown (0845 748 4950), 12 miles away.
