SITUATION: - Newbridge-on-Wye is a picturesque small village that is bisected by the A470 Cardiff to Bangor Trunk road and set back from the River Wye. It has a Primary School, sub-Post Office / general store, two public houses, Garage, Church, Chapel and Community Centre, surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside. Mid Wales House is located near the centre of the village, fronting onto a 'B' class road, with a Westerly aspect to the front and distant views from the upstairs windows across the Wye Valley and Cambrian Mountains. The County Town of Llandrindod Wells is 4 miles and the small market towns of Builth Wells and Rhayader are 5 miles and 8 miles distant respectively with a regular bus service. Together they provide a good range of shopping and business facilities (Tesco and Aldi), Secondary Schools, College of Further Education, Cottage Hospital and Railway Stations (Shrewsbury to Swansea Line). Excellent local leisure amenities include three sports centres, two golf courses, indoor and outdoor bowls, Cinema, Theatres, fishing on the River Wye and Elan Valley Dams. The market towns of Llanidloes, Brecon and Newtown are approximately 22, 26 and 31 miles distant, with Aberystwyth, Hereford and Abergavenny all around an hours drive.

HISTORY: - We understand that this property dates back to the 18th Century when it was a Drovers Inn used by people walking livestock from Wales to the markets in England, using the nearby ford in the River Wye. It was extended in the Victorian era after the Mid Wales Railway Line was built in the 1860's, which ran from Moat Lane (near Caersws), via Llanidloes, Rhayader to the North and Southwards via Builth Road (intersection with Heart of Wales line), Builth Wells and Erwood to Brecon. At this time its name was changed to the Mid Wales Inn and the village was renowned for pony and sheep sales. The railway line was closed on 31st December 1962 and by 1970 the property had been converted into a Craft Shop and Gallery. The vendors bought the business in 1980 and ran it for a number of years before transferring the Gallery to Llandrindod Wells and have since used it as a family home.

THE RESIDENCE: - An attractive L-shaped detached property built from stone walls with coloured elevations and a slate roof. It has been tastefully modernised over the past 35 years and when the business was operational they lived at first floor level. This property retains a wealth of character features, to include exposed beams, some flagstone floors, some exposed stone walling, etc. The former bar is now a workshop and the Gallery is now a large living room, however Mid Wales House has a huge degree of flexibility, with two front doors and two staircases, so it could be readily used by an extended family or reverted to partial business use. It has oil-fired central heating and provides the following spacious accommodation: -
