In a quiet Mid Wales valley, 3 miles from the village of Llanfair Caereinion, 10 miles from Welshpool and 10 miles from Newtown, Blackbird is one of three wheelchair-accessible self catering holiday bungalows.
Built to our specifications in 2001, Blackbird Cottage has a large kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, kettle and toaster. The living room has two sofas and an armchair, as well as a tv with DVD player and a stereo system.
There are three bedrooms - a double and two twins.
The shower room angled and drop-down support rails, a roll-in shower and a washbasin with wheelchair room beneath. There's also a separate toilet with washbasin. There is oil-fired central heating throughout.
Blackbird Cottage is one of three cottages set within an acre of a mixture of shrubs, vegetable gardens, borders and fruit trees. Neither of the other cottages can be seen from the windows. The views from the windows open out onto fields and hills. There is an acre of woodland within a few yards of the property and that includes many mature trees, saplings, shrubs, fruit trees, and slopes, streams, steps and a path all around with two benches strategically placed to sit, admire the view and get a mobile signal if needed.
Within half an hour's drive of Madog's Wells guests can reach Powis Castle, Pistyll Rhaeadr and Lake Vyrnwy. A little further afield is Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) at Machynlleth, and the red kite feeding centre at Gigrin Farm, Rhayader and the Elan are pubs offering good food within 3 to 7 miles of Madog's Wells.
We have had many complimentary comments from guests, the latest are as follows:-
"Thank you for making us so welcome, we had a lovely break and the jam (Raspberry) was to die for! Back to reality now ...!"
"Thank you Ann and Michael for another lovely week, one of many. Looking forward to seeing you both in July (our 19th year)"
"One of the most pleasant holidays. Ann and Michael made us so welcome. House wonderful, birds and view, just what we needed."
"We saw a spotted woodpecker and a mad squirrel climbing the window frame. Beautiful scenery, peaceful. Lovely to see you again. Will be back soon."
