The cottage sleeps 9 max and has the added advantage of plenty of space for yourselves, with the games room, which is a retreat in the garden and plenty of land to roam about or kick a football and also to walk your dog safely. There is a log burner in the lounge with access to our log store with no extra charge. The cottage is a converted barn and therefore has retained it's character. Apart from a warm welcome we include tea/coffee, milk sugar and homemade welsh cakes. We are Welsh speaking, so can even offer some lessons on Welsh phrases!! Pets are very welcome. The BBQ area boasts wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and there is a children's play area within view of the cottage, so you can relax whilst you watch them play..
