Richard and Medina Brock started out with just one room in the charming stony buildings of Brandy House Farm. It wasn’t long before things took off, however, and once you’ve stayed here for a night or two it’s easy to see why. Their warm friendly welcome, a breakfast that has been awarded the title of ‘Best in Wales’ (seriously) and local knowledge that extends from the endless surrounding footpaths to the tastiest places to eat. The Brock’s are the perfect hosting team and, with the obvious support of their quaint 30-acre farmstead and a picture-perfect countryside backdrop, they can now boast a most highly acclaimed variety of holiday accommodation.

But this is walker’s country. Poised in a lush green valley, the River Teme meanders lazily along the edge of a B-road that leads to the farm, its glistening waters marking the boundary between England and Wales. The slopes that drop down around the river are criss-crossed by streams, footpaths and bridleways creating an outdoor playground for anyone with a mind to get out and explore. Despite the warmth a B&B or Cottage may exude, the stunning natural scenery calls for accommodation of the more Hipcamp kind and, here too, Richard and Medina haven’t missed a trick.

A few hundred yards from the farm buildings, in their own spaces, part garden part hillside glade, you will find Willow Pod and just beyond is Wild Rose Vintage both with wifi and both nicely fitting the bill between B&B comfort and mountain-man escapism. On the other side of the farmstead are Laurel and Sycamore Pods. All Pods are off grid, Floor-to-ceiling double glazed windows let the outside in and allow you to wake up admiring views across the Teme Valley, while fold down beds provide ample space and comfortable room for sleeping... and Wild Rose a few more home comforts, beds made up for you with cotton linen and its own little woodland garden.

For easy access, theres's a waterless toilet, a odour-saving 20 yards away, and those looking for the extra household comforts can head into the farm buildings to find a hot shower and wireless internet (Willow and Wild Rose have the luxurythough of their own free wifi.) It goes without saying that the famous breakfast is still available, delivered to the pods stable-style door in the morning; cooked by Richard with locally-sourced produce.

But for all the creature-comforts, those wanting the real deal can pitch up in the small 'wild camping' area, set aside for a limited number of tents.

And when we say Richard and Medina haven’t missed a trick, we mean it. The Brandy House is suited to the outdoorsy types for more than just its open views and awaiting campfire-pit. Mountain bikers and cyclists can make use of the handy wash down facilities and flick through a helpful route portfolio, while those looking to saddle up and head off on hoof are even better catered for. The 9 stables and individual paddocks for turning out your horse, means riders have accommodation for both themselves and their trusty steed. Whether you walk the Welsh national trails or canter cross-country to explore the bridleways, it’s worth chatting with Richard and Medina who know the area well. If you make it back by dinnertime, cooking your own beneath the stars is the best way to enjoy the POD verandas and the gorgeous gardens or you can even book a farmhouse takeaway which they’ll prepare and deliver to you leaving you with nothing more to worry about than toasting marshmallows on your fire pit.

Amazing camping pitch!
I loved the camping pitch from Brandy’s Farm. The pitch was big, in a grass area but able to pitch the tent in a level spot. It was on a higher ground than the farm, close enough for facilities but kind of good enough to feel like a wild spot which was great. Good parking area for visitors and you can unpack your car close to the pitch which was great. Facilities were always clean with hot water all the time. There was a possibility for laundry for a small charge which is good if you are planning to stay longer. We stayed only two days , no need to use it but it’s good to know it is an option. We also paid for a fire pit and we were provided with lots of wood for this. Lovely old trees around, the birds singing early morning was just a delight. Good hiking spot, with plenty of walking routes. The villages around are really nice to visit as well. Lots of nice places with friendly people. I highly recommend camping at Brandy’s Farm.

Hidden gem
What a hidden gem this is! I couldn't recommend this place enough. I got there Sunday evening on my motorcycle after I got caught up in the rain and Richard was kind enough to help me dry my equipment and provide me with a fire pit! Thank you! The camping spot is just amazing, under the trees so if it's either sunny or rainy you're in the best place to be, with stunning views across the Welsh landscape. I am looking forward going back to this place where everything seems in harmony.

From the host
Brandy House Farm is a 30 acre shall holding that is also home to a small flock of Welsh Black Mountain and Jacob sheep,  a few chickens, 10 horses, Dolly and Sky the spaniels and Timmy the yard cat. Ideally placed for exploring Mid Wales and Shropshire,  surrounded by beautiful Welsh countryside yet close to the English/Welsh border.  With direct access to crown estate nature reserve this is an amazing place for country lovers; you really can get out onto the hills from your doorstep Brandy House Farm offers you all the ingredients for a perfect holiday for friends and family all year round
Nearby attractions
Walking and mountain biking from the doorstep most often centres around the Glyndwrs Way, an excellent national trail which passes through Brandy House Farm. Richard and Medina have excellent knowledge of the surrounding routes and can help walkers, cyclers or equestrians alike in their planning, they also have a handy route portfolio waiting for you. For the most immediate exploration, either walk up onto Beacon Hill Crown Estate from your door step or stroll into the village (5 minutes away) to join the footpaths on the Shropshire side of the border. Beacon Hill, a 6000 acre upland nature reserve, is an excellent place to see wildlife. The heath clad landscape attracts birds like the nesting Wheatear, Meadow Pipit, Stonechat, Merlin and Peregrine, among others. It's wild without being rugged and an excellent place to begin walking in the area. Cyclists will find great XC riding on the doorstep and easy journeys to several world class mountain bike centres with freeride, downhill and uplift facilities. The area hosts MTB enduro and the Autumn Epic, One of Britain's top rated Cycle Sportives. For something a little less energetic try exploring Powys Castle, 20 miles away, The Hall at Abbey-Cwm-Hir, 20 miles, or Judges Lodging Presteigne, 18 miles away.
Food and drink
If you prefer not to cook then it is possible to book a campers breakfast or farmhouse takeaway supper brought to your accommodation, The Wharf, local village pub ideal for a drink is just 5 minutes walk away but doesn't serve food.  The Radnorshire Arms, Beguildy (01547 510634), 2 miles away, is the nearest pub serving food, a wonderfully old building that is home to friendly service and good food.  Beguildy also has a lovely traditional village shop.
