The Lake Country House Hotel & Spa in Mid Wales is "the place to go for total Victorian country elegance," saysFodor's. Built in 1840 as a hunting and fishing lodge, the country-house hotel is set in 50 acres surrounded by a 3-acre lake, thick woods and beautiful rhododendron-lined pathways. The property is a haven for wildlife; herons, dippers and kingfishers can be spotted on the lake.

The property is a 30-minute drive from Brecon town center and an hour's drive from the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is a 45-minute drive from Hay-on-Wye -- a small market town referred to as the "town of books", that’s perfect for a stroll round the antique shops and a spot of afternoon tea.

The restaurant has a 300-strong wine list and favors wines of the Old World with some vintages dating back to 1959.

Bedrooms are all individually designed. Suites have a spacious lounge and bedroom area, which include a bath and separate shower. Extras include luxury bath robes, free Wi-Fi access, iPod docking stations, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and home-made biscuits. Suites are either in the main house or the lodge; suites in the lodges have double doors opening onto the grounds.

The Kingfisher Spa has an indoor pool, a sauna and an outdoor hot tub that looks out on the lake. Other facilities include a 50-foot indoor pool, a gym, a sauna and four spa treatment rooms. There's also a 9-hole par-3 golf course, a tennis court, a croquet lawn and a billiards room. Anglers can try fishing in the well-stocked trout lake, a short walk from the hotel.
