There are an electric oven and hob, fridge with small freezer compartment, a microwave oven, toaster and kettle as standard equipment. A shower room and toilet is also located on the ground floor. A charming spiral staircase leads to the two bedrooms; one double and one twin. Warm and comfortable - affording a perfect restful sleep to weary guests after an exhilarating day’s riding! We provide all bed linen, towels, logs for the fire. We also have a brand new laundry room for communal use. Please note that access to Gilfach Farm is down (and up) a rather steep track, thus may not be suitable for particularly low-slung vehicles! The uneven nature of the terrain around Gilfach, and the spiral staircase within the Cottage, may present a difficulty to those with restricted mobility. Should you have any concerns regarding these matters, please contact us.More

Cosy cottage in delightful setting. Plenty of walks nearby. Our dog soon settled in and searched out Oscar for walks and sniffing about. Could use some new plates and bowls in the kitchen, and a filled salt mill would be a useful addition.
