The cottage has been lovingly renovated in 2019 and is full of period charm and contemporary twists. It is furnished with a mixture of old Welsh antiques and contemporary pieces, including a feature fireplace, interesting artwork and fabulous views from every window.
As you open the front door, to your left is the cosy lounge with comfy sofas, the original stone fireplace with a stunning wood burner, TV and a good selection of books and games. This is a great space to sit back, relax near the fire, listen to music on the Bluetooth speaker or maybe watch a movie or two after a long day of exploring the local surroundings. To the right is the dining area with the table perfectly positioned to enjoy the superb valley views over breakfast or dinner. Walk through to the bright, creatively designed and well-equipped kitchen, with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and Nespresso coffee machine.

Upstairs on the first floor are two lovely, light filled bedrooms, one king-size and one twin. Both rooms have charming beams and fabulous views to the front and rear, delightful to wake up in.
The cottage is surrounded by gardens with a lawn to the side and a paved front garden with a large picnic table. This makes a wonderful place to enjoy the charcoal BBQ, admire the tranquil surroundings and in the evenings listen to the soothing sound of the nearby river Towy. This is a Dark Sky rural area, so the night skies are truly wonderful if you enjoy stargazing. Borrow the binoculars from the lounge and look out for red kites and other local birds. There is off-road parking on the driveway for one car and further roadside parking for another car on this quiet hamlet road, there is also space for bikes to be stored in the lockable garage.
There are two local pubs, both within walking distance. The Towy Bridge Inn is a few minutes walk down the road. The Royal Oak Inn is on the other side of the valley, approx. 15 minutes walk.
