The Property

Geufron Cottage is a well presented, detached, period house found in an elevated, rural position in the hamlet of Bwlch-Y-Plain, just 4 miles from the market town of Knighton (Tref-y-Clawdd), which lies directly on the Welsh/English border within the picturesque Teme Valley.

Nestled into the side of Goytre Hill and available to purchase with no upward chain, Geufron Cottage was originally built circa 1800's and has been extended on a couple of occasion over the years creating what is now a spacious, 2 storey dwelling. More recently the cottage has been lovingly refurbished by the current owners and overall presents an elegant blend of contemporary and traditional features including double glazed windows, exposed beams, oak finishes throughout and a stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove.

Approached across a tree-lined track, which serves Geufron Cottage only, inside the house offers an entrance hall, sizeable living/dining room, kitchen, separate sitting room/study and a shower room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs a landing area gives way to 3 double bedrooms, all benefiting from wonderful views and a separate bathroom and W.C. Accessed through sliding patio doors from the master bedroom is a balcony area, which is a great place to start the day off with a morning coffee and enjoying the far-reaching views over the adjoining fields.

Set in approximately 1/3 of an acre of largely lawned, sloped garden, stocked with an array of mature trees and shrubs along with a useful shed and log store, Geufron Cottage could be perfect for horticultural enthusiasts to get their green fingers stuck into! The front of the property is paved in its entirety and is arguably the best spot to enjoy the stunning, panoramic views across the beautiful surrounding countryside and is an ideal place to relax within the warmer months of the year with singing birds and the occasional bleating sheep as peaceful background noise. For those with the idyllic dream of having a few roaming chickens or even breeding a few sheep or even a horse, then you will be pleased to hear that to the right of the house is an adjoining paddock, which spans to approximately 2/3 of an acre and has gated access in the bottom corner leading directly out onto the lane.

Whether you are looking for a private and tranquil residence to retire to, a million miles from the hustle and bustle of city life, or perhaps a larger property for your growing family, or even a countryside retreat for those weekend getaways, either way you can be sure that whoever the new lucky owners of Geufron Cottage are, would have acquired a truly splendid house, which is simply ready to move straight into and start calling "home"!

The Location 

If you are looking for a rural retreat without the headache of being too far from town, this property offers the best of both worlds with the border town of Knighton found less than 4 miles away with its vibrant main street hosting a variety of local groceries, retail shops and family run businesses. Overall Knighton offers a good amount of facilities and services including a butchers and a supermarket, a primary school, a railway station, a post office, a bank, a variety of sports clubs which includes a golf course, a builders merchants, regular bus routes, a selection of public houses, cafés and restaurants, a leisure centre with swimming pool, a livestock market, bakeries and a library.

The town features a fortnightly 'farmers market' at the local community centre and also benefits from having a thriving artistic community including The Writers Group, a number of painters, art galleries, potters, craftsmen and a light entertainment society. Still a thriving market town spearheaded by local organisations, Knighton is a peaceful town offering breath taking, picturesque scenery and fully accommodates the laid back, relaxed lifestyle that many potential purchasers will be looking for. Described as the ‘The Gateway to Wales’ this market town is situated on the English/Welsh border. Mostly in Powys, partly in Shropshire it lies on the River Teme and is surrounded by hills giving the traveller a glimpse of the more remote areas accessible nearby.

The town's Welsh name is Tref-y-Clawdd meaning “Town on the Dyke”. This is a reference to Offa’s Dyke, which runs through the town, built by the Saxon King of Mercia to define his border with Wales. Every year hundreds of tourists and walkers visit the Dyke (which in its entirety runs from Prestatyn to Chepstow) and the Offa’s Dyke Centre adding a real vibe to the town during the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. While here, other attractions that visitors to the town often call upon is the famous Space Guard Centre, which offers people the chance to view the wonders of the universe in a fun and understandable way while also raising public awareness of the threat of asteroid and comet impacts and the ways in which they can predict and prevent them. Larger towns near to Knighton are the medieval market town of Ludlow, 16 miles East, and the Victorian Spa town Llandrindod Wells, 19 Miles South West. Both are easily accessible via road or rail links and offer further recreational, educational and leisure facilities.
