This ivy-clad 17th-century farmhouse sits in a tranquil area 5 miles from Lake Vyrnwy. Bedrooms are huge, with exposed oak beams and log fireplaces. A rooftop spa has a sauna and hot tub with sweeping views across the Vyrnwy Valley. There are also three luxurious converted barns and stables, two of which are self-catering, for those craving even more privacy. Hosts Claire and Neil are excellent cooks, and will whip up delicious three-course meals, full of local produce, for £27.50 per head (book in advance).
