Property code: SESSL

Offering the kind of holiday you'll be talking about for years to come, this five-star property is one of two medieval buildings packed full of character and charm. Nestled within verdant grounds amongst the ambrosial countryside of Mid Wales, up to 16 guests and two dogs can enjoy a group getaway like no other. Spend hazy summer days indulging in sizzling BBQs, lakeside picnics and hot tub soaks as the children and pups let off steam playing games on the lawns. In winter, evenings are best spent hunkered down in the lounge, a bottle of wine breathing on the hearth and board games strewn across the floor.

A winsome mix of period features, vintage finds and luxury mod-cons, this spacious family home has something for all generations. Wake up in one of the eight bedrooms split across the lodge and adjoining annexe and let the sumptuous depths of your bed of choice lull you back to sleep. With the luxury of eight bathrooms, there will be no frantic queues in the morning. Spread across the ground floor, the property's spacious living areas invite both conversation and relaxation. Prepare healthy breakfasts, tasty lunches and hearty family dinners in the kitchen as the children lay up the dining table ready for a feast. With all you could need to prepare meals en masse, you will quickly feel at home in the well-equipped kitchen. Of course, to make life easier, you can also hire your own private chef to take care of culinary duties, giving you more time to relax in the lounge and top up your glass as you wait. Heading outside, the property has a private patio complete with garden furniture, BBQ and best of all, steps down to your own exclusive hot tub. Let the bubbles float your worries away and, when you are ready, jump out to enjoy a sunset stroll in the grounds.
