Why Angelika Bradley-Zenz chose Knighton
The cottage used to be our family holiday cottage . After my retirement we refurbished it completely to turn it into holiday rental. The cottage is in a lovely natural location and is ideal for relaxing ,walking , bird watching , star gazing and exploring the sites of Wales. Cefn Pawl is very popular with guests and many come again and again.
What makes this Cottage unique
If you want to be close to nature and and love tranquillity, this cottage is probably perfect. The secluded garden is a great space for kids to play in. And for the whole family there is a friendly pub which serves delicious food in the near by village.

Cozy cottage in Beguildy
I was staying in Beguildy for 2 days to meet some friends in Knighton and explore the surrounding area. The cottage was clean and had all the necessary equipment for the purpose of the trip. The only issue we had was getting the car stuck in the mud at the bottom of the driveway after a night of heavy rainfall. Thankfully we were towed out of the mud by a friendly farmer who lived down the road. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay and would recommend staying in the cottage if you are in the area.
We had a lovely weekend at Cefn Pawl, it's in a beautiful and remote location, but unfortunately for us, the stormy weather in recent weeks made travel to the area difficult, everywhere was waterlogged and there was a lot of debris on the hill towards the cottage. Once indoors it was very cosy and warm once the heating was on. Unfortunately we couldn't get a fire going as the logs provided were very damp. The living room was lovely and the furniture is very comfy, the beds were also very comfortable and clean. The kitchen had everything required and having WIFI was beneficial as mobile phone signal is very bad.
My only real issue was the skylights directly over the beds need blinds, it's very bright as soon as the sun comes up.
Overall a lovely experience, just a shame the wind, rain,sleet, snow, hail and more wind was relentless .
We had such a lovely stay. The cottage is beautiful and the garden is just wonderful.
We’ve stayed in many cottages in wales as we visit a lot and this has to be the best setting.
So secluded, no visitors apart from the horses and sheep which our children loved.
Looking forwards to coming back.
A wonderful cosy cottage just right for the wintry winds and bleak weather - warm and welcoming and the teenagers loved it (thank you for providing wifi!!). We visited the Spaceguard Centre in Knighton - what an informative and fascinating tour, highly recommend (though not if you're nervous about the planet being hit by comets and asteroids), We would love to return one day when the weather is finer and we can do the walks that look so inviting from the cottage!
Nice and pleasant stay
Beautiful location and landscape... very quiet!!!
Cefn Pawl is situated high on the up on the Radnorshire hillside in its own secluded setting commanding panoramic views over protected crown commission land practically on Glendwr's Way. Near by is the historic market town of Knighton with Offa's dyke, the Spaceguard Centre, and all amenities. Presteigne where the annual Sheep music festival is held, is only down the road. Also Clun, Bishop's castle and Ludlow are within easy reach. Further afield are the red kites in the Elan Valley, the beautiful resort of Aberdovey and the very popular Borth on the coast, all within throwing distance of the Alternative Technology Centre at Machynlless. Llanidloes and the forest Hafren close to the spring of the river Severn is well worth a visit as is the quaint regional capital Llandrindod Wells, famous for its Victorian festival. Then there are numerous castles especially Powys castle, the Iron age fort near Knighton and of course Ironbidge.
