Abbeycwmhir (meaning: Abbey in the long valley) is a small secluded village set in a beautiful peaceful valley in the Cambrian Mountains, surrounded by farms and forestry and set on Glyndwr's Way (a long-distance footpath). It gets its name from the former Cistercian Abbey (c.1143) and now there is just a Church, the historic Happy Union Inn, a Community Centre and a Victorian Gothic country house which once had a 3,000 acre estate. 1 Picadilly Cottage is set back from a minor road, with a pleasant South-easterly aspect and borders farmland, giving beautiful views. The large, level garden has good privacy and runs down to a small stream and village amenities are only 0.3 mile distant.
There is a Primary School and Service Station at Crossgates (5 miles) and the small market town of Rhayader is 6 miles away, over a winding narrow road with views to the Elan Valley (Caban Coch dam). The County Town of Llandrindod Wells is about 8 miles and has a good range of shops, Tesco Superstore, Aldi supermarket, a range of business facilities, successful schools, a cottage hospital and Railway Station (Shrewsbury to Swansea line). Within 20 miles there are five sports centres, indoor and outdoor bowling greens, four golf courses, Cinemas, Theatres and game and coarse fishing. The market towns of Llanidloes, Builth Wells and Newtown are approximately 13, 17 and 20 miles away respectively, with the coastal resort and University town of Aberystwyth and City of Hereford both about an hour's drive.
