Surrounded by rolling hills the house is within close proximity of a number of natural interests including Lake Vyrnwy, Bala Lake and Llanrhaeder Waterfalls. The house is also close to The Rainbow Trails which are set in 20,000 acres in the stunning Forests of Dyfnant and Vyrnwy in Powys, Mid Wales. Nearly 100 miles of safe, traffic free horse riding and carriage driving tracks with spectacular views of woodland, hills, heath and lake.
The area provides a fantastic opportunity for walkers, cyclists, equestrians and birdwatchers or to just sit back and take in the beautiful Welsh countryside.
Llanfyllin is a small town which has a rich history dating back to at least the seventh century when the Parish church was founded. Today the town offers a variety of amenities including shops, pubs, medical centre and local store including the bilingual Llanfyllin High School and Llanfyllin Primary School. A wider selection of amenities can be found in Welshpool, Oswestry and Shrewsbury.

Both Welshpool and Shrewsbury have train stations with links to London and West Wales.


Cyfie Farm is an enchanting farmhouse; currently run as a 5& gold award winning B & B and self catering, the oldest part of the house dating back to 1640 with later additions. The house offers an array of character with many of the original features being retained.
The current owners have lovingly restored and refurbished Cyfie Farm to an exemplary standard and in a most imaginative and appealing manner, offering a fantastic family home as well as a wonderful lifestyle opportunity.

There is the option to shut this section of the house off from the main living area to provide self contained guest accommodation.

The kitchen/breakfast room is the main hub of the house and may be accessed off the sitting room or through a separate access from the front of the house. The handmade kitchen was fitted by Kenton Jones and includes a granite worktop, double Belfast sink and integrated Bosch appliances including electric oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher. A breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the breakfast room and family room which is fitted with an oil fuelled AGA which was refurbished in 2014.

Off the kitchen is the dining room, which has Welsh Oak flooring designed by Kenton Jones, and leads into the garden room made of Welsh Green Oak with Blaenau Ffestiniog slate floor with underfloor heating.
