Spend your holiday in a quirky, romantic, riverside retreat. This unusual turf-covered roundhouse is in a fabulous setting and you can while away evenings dining alfresco and enjoying the warmth of the fire pit.

Set on a four-acre smallholding with the River Severn at the bottom of the garden, this truly unique turf-covered roundhouse is surrounded by peaceful grounds of wildflower meadows, chickens and plenty of quirky additions. When you’re not fishing for your supper or toasting marshmallows on the fire pit, take time to explore this stunning area of Wales that’s rich in fine architecture, cultural heritage and culinary delights.

Meticulously finished, this enchanting bolthole is sure to impress your loved one, whether they’re a Frodo fan or not. Step into the intimate lounge/kitchen/diner with its inviting king-size bed, hand-crafted kitchen area and underfloor heating to keep you warm during those chillier nights. In the mornings, prepare a delicious breakfast of freshly laid eggs from the resident hens before indulging in a revitalising hot shower. Throw open the doors to invite in the delightful sound of birdsong and the babbling river beyond. With a BBQ and fire pit, the garden is a magical spot to while away a summer’s evening.

This four-acre smallholding sits in an idyllic hamlet 3 miles from Llanidloes. Here you will find an array of cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops and galleries for stocking up on supplies or treating yourselves to a meal out when you’d rather not cook. A haven for walkers and cyclists alike, the local area boasts a choice of footpaths and cycle routes through the majestic rolling Mid Wales hills with plenty of romantic picnic stops along the way. If it’s fresh sea air you’d prefer, head 28 miles west to the spectacular sandy beach at Borth, a popular destination for swimming, walking and boating.

I desperately needed a break somewhere quiet to recharge the batteries. Hidden Hollow did not disappoint. Peaceful, with everything we needed for a wonderful few days. Loved hearing the owls at night and seeing millions of stars. Will be returning in the summer for sure! Thank you to the hosts, who were friendly and helpful.
