Prince Charles has reportedly travelled to his £1.2million Welsh country bolthole to grieve for his father Prince Philip following the funeral on Saturday.

The Prince of Wales is believed to have headed alone to the beautiful stone cottage in Llwynywermod, Llandovery, just 24 hours after his father was laid to rest at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle last Saturday.

“Charles felt he wanted to reflect alone. He also wants to attend to the thousands of letters sent to him in condolence of his father’s death,” source told MailOnline.

Princes Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall bought the three-bedroom country hideaway in 2007 and typically spend a couple of weeks a year at the stunning farmhouse.

The idyllic bolthole features three cottages, a Grade II listed barn and the main house for the use of Charles and Camilla.

The father to Prince William, 38, and Prince Harry, 36, previously described the property, set just outside the Brecon Beacons, as “exceptionally beautiful” and within distance of the Welsh capital of Cardiff.

The Royal couple renovated the farmhouse in 2008 and photographs show a huge dining hall with a vaulted ceiling along with a pretty farmhouse garden and manicured borders.

Inside the grand dining hall, we can see a huge mahogany table stretching the length of the room and seated for 16 guests.

Meanwhile two chandeliers hang over the table and rich red tapestries are mounted on the walls.

A large church window is the focal point of the room and floods the space with natural light.

The exterior of the property has been painted in a cottage cream with eggshell green painted on the window frames and door.

Two huge terracotta pots flank the pathway to the front door while stone borders have been filled with climbing plants and shrubs to complement the cream brickwork.

Another view of the garden sees a large manicured lawn with a square water feature in the centre.

The engraving on the stone reads: “To HRH the Prince of Wales great master of the order.”

Pretty borders have been etched into the lawn and filled with gorgeous climbing plants.

The 72 year old departed for the Welsh hideaway after reportedly holding a face-to-face meeting with sons Prince William and Prince Harry at Windsor Castle.

It was reported that the trio met up away from the cameras and had a discussion for the first time since Harry and wife Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

A Royal insider told the publication: “Obviously after the worldwide fallout of the Oprah interview trust has to be rebuilt.

“There was no official wake after the funeral, but Charles, William and Harry took the opportunity to speak and catch-up face to face after many months apart.
