SITUATION: -  Holcombe Drive forms part of a mature popular development on the North-western outskirts of town.  This bungalow is built on an almost level plot that it is surrounded by bungalows, with a Southerly aspect and distant views of the Cambrian Mountains.  A footpath across the High School’s playing fields acts as a short-cut to the Leisure Centre (250 yards), Tesco is about ¼-mile and Town Centre amenities are just over a ½-mile walk.   

Llandrindod Wells is the County Town of and administrative centre of Powys and has a range of shopping and business facilities, Tesco Superstore, Aldi Supermarket, successful schools, Cottage Hospital and Railway Station (Shrewsbury to Swansea line).  In the 2015 and 2017 Rightmove surveys LD1 (Llandrindod Wells postal area) was declared “the friendliest place to move to in the UK” and “Happiest Town in Wales”.  Local leisure facilities include a Sports Centre, indoor and outdoor bowls (International quality), renowned 18-hole Golf Course, Game and Coarse fishing.  The market towns of Builth Wells, Rhayader, Knighton, Brecon and Newtown are 8, 10, 19, 24 and 26 miles distant, with Hereford, Abergavenny and Aberystwyth all about an hour’s drive, and Cardiff, Swansea, Worcester and the Severn Bridge all roughly a 1½-hour drive (dependent on traffic conditions).
