The Living Area

The main living area is very spacious and has retained its character whilst being completely renovated, and has all the mod cons you would expect from a 20th century home. The cottage has retained the wooden beams that give it a traditional look and feeling.
The cottage is fully central heated throughout so guests do not have to worry about being chilly through the winter months. Alternatively, the Log Burner will keep everyone well and truly toasty with an unlimited supply of logs supplied at no extra charge.

Having laminated flooring throughout gives the cottage a modern touch and the three piece suite will guarantee plenty of evening comfort after a hard days riding or walking.

There is a large TV within this room equipped with Free view, and a DVD player. Play station and X-Box consoles can be plugged in and will keep the children entertained for hours.There is Free Wi Fi and a connection for your smart phone so you can listen to your music through the stereo system.

As an alternative, a stereo CD player is available for those who just want to relax to their own kind of music. A selection of books are available for reading but if you choose to bring your own books and finish them, why not leave them for the next guests to read.

The Main Living Area

living2By far the best feature of the living area in the stunning panoramic view. When you open the Patio doors on a beautiful day, the Summer Breeze comes in and the Welsh Valley becomes part of the room.

And in the winter time, with the early morning frost and snow on the hills, the Valley gives a completely different, yet beautiful feel to it.

Whatever time of year, the ever changing scenery is always spectacular, and of course, with the Red Kite Sanctuary just up the hill, the Red Kites are ever present in the afternoons.

A couple of things that you surely must not forget to bring with you when staying with us, and they are your Camera and Binoculars..!

The Kitchen and Dining Area

kitchenAdjoining the Living Room is the Kitchen Dining area. As with the rest of the Cottage, it has been totally re-fitted to an exceptional standard.

When our guests first enter the Kitchen, the first thing that strikes them is the stunning view from the large window, a view stretching for miles down the valley, keeping that feeling that you are in the country at all times.

The kitchen has plenty of food preparation space, having work surfaces on three sides and plenty of utensils. In fact it has every implement you could think of, and customer feedback has been that there are more utensils than most customers have at home!

If guests only have time for a quick snack before heading in to Aberystwyth or off down to the Sand Dunes at Ynyslas, or out on the next Mountain Bike Trail, a Microwave Oven is provided ensuring that no precious time here is wasted.

For those who wish to prepare a real family meal, there is a cooker with grill and an oven with plenty of saucepans etc for use. A refrigerator is provided for milk and any local produce ensuring that it is kept fresh for the duration of your stay with us.

A dishwasher is provided that will take off the pressure for those guests not wanting to wash up..! We have tried to think of everything but unfortunately, the Dishwasher is NOT self loading OR self unloading so someone will have to do that..!

With plenty of storage cupboard space, this kitchen really is home from home.

Dining for up to Six

At the other end of the kitchen is a dining table and chairs that will seat up to six people so the family can sit for their meal and talk about the great day that they have had.

Alternatively, during the Summer months, guests can sit outside in the Patio area to enjoy their food and the great view at the same time.

We provide washing up liquid,dishwasher tablets and kitchen roll as well as tea towels for your convenience.

The Bedrooms

The cottage has three bedrooms, that can sleep up to six people very comfortably. The Master bedroom gives our guests the option to either use it as a Super King Size bed for extra comfort or it can be separated into two individual beds, and the room becomes another twin room, which ever suits our guests needs best. There are two pine bedside cabinets in the room that gives storage for personal items and a large double pine wardrobe against the feature wall. The en-suite shower room gives the occupants plenty of personal comfort and privacy.

The twin rooms are very similar in decoration, both have larger than average single beds, a bed side cabinet, and double wardrobe. Twin bedroom number 1 is next to the master bedroom and has views of the forest behind the cottage. Twin bedroom number 2 looks out over the front cottage, giving partial views of the valley and views of the farmhouse gardens.
