SITUATION: -  This property is set in a most convenient location on a quiet side street, 200 yards from the town centre, 300 yards from the Railway / Bus Station and roughly ¼ mile from the Aldi Supermarket, a Primary school and Lakeside Park.  Craig-y-nos has a Southerly aspect and the rear garden is sufficiently long to have a second patio at the far end to catch the sun.  Llandrindod Wells is the County Town and administrative centre of Powys and has a range of shopping and business facilities, Tesco Superstore, 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, active U3A, Theatre, Library, Game and Coarse fishing.  The market towns of Builth Wells, Rhayader, Knighton, Brecon and Newtown are 7, 10, 19, 24 and 26 miles distant, with Hereford, Abergavenny and Aberystwyth all about an hour’s drive.  Cardiff, Swansea, Worcester and the Severn Bridge are all just over a 1½-hour drive.  (Note - All times dependent on traffic conditions)
