If the pace of modern life is bringing you down, then the Venus Room in sleepy Franksbridge, mid-Wales may be just the remedy. Although you're adjacent to the owner's property the cabin is private and not overlooked. In amongst the Scots pine trees, you'll find your unique 5 sided cedar wood cabin with a comfortable double bed, wood burner, breakfast bar and Wifi.
Next to the cabin, your private facilities include a shower room with mains flushing WC, washbasin and hot water shower cubicle, as well as a magnificent outdoor bath.
An open-sided kitchen has everything you could need to cook up a meal to eat inside your cosy cabin by the log burner, or at the outdoor table. The kitchen is complete with a gas burner, tabletop oven, fridge, crockery and cooking utensils. The kitchen sink has a plentiful supply of hot and cold running water. The owner provides a lovely little welcome pack, which makes you feel right at home from the moment you arrive.
You'll have two outdoor areas to use exclusively, so why not sit by your fire pit and cook your meals outdoors surrounded by birdsong and flowers. Your cabin at night is a warm place to nestle down, light the wood burner, pull up a chair and read a book. During the day, you can take yourself off on a meandering journey on foot; and with Wales being the UK's adventure capital, if you're in a more thrill-seeking mood, you can indulge in activities from mountain hikes to canoeing in the local area.
10 minutes to Builth Wells, 15 minutes to Llandrindod Wells, you'll have plenty of choices to shop for your supplies or go out for a meal. Ideal for switching off your phones and revelling in the simple pleasures of life, Venus room provides a chance to experience simple living in natural surroundings.
