This beautiful little cottage is possibly our very favourite place to go when we want to unwind. When you're at work and it's stress, stress, stress, everyday, you can forget all that when you come here.
Whilst most people decide to go off touring and seeing the local sights, we literally stayed here at the cottage all week and did as little as possible. The settings are just superb, hidden away down a tiny country lane out of the way of everyone and overlooked by no one. We didn't see a soul all week and we loved it!
So what do you do if you're not going out sightseeing? We took leisurely walks with the dog, sat out in the garden, read books, listened to classical music and just completely relaxed and switched off. This cottage really is a breath of fresh air and considering that I am someone who doesn't sleep well and wakes up in the morning feeling tired and achy, I can truly say that here, I woke up in the morning after the best night's sleep ever, feeling refreshed.
We love this place so much following our first visit in October 2016, that we subsequently visited again in June 2017 and we have two weeks booked here in 2018. We simply cannot recommend this place highly enough if you're looking for somewhere to wind down, switch off from the world and get away from everyone.
In addition to that, you have beautiful surroundings and a full view down the valley and across to the Welsh mountains. June brings the beautiful summer flowers and in October, the nightshade and yew berries as well as beechnuts and beautiful autumn leaves just cover the lane. There's always lots of nature around and about, we've seen hares, pheasants and various birds in the garden.
At nighttime, you have perfect peace and quiet, not a sound and no light pollution, you can sit out and see thousands of stars. And even if the weather is varied, which it was when we stayed, it doesn't spoil the beauty and tranquility of this cottage.
The cottage itself has an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area, complete with dining table, settee, woodburner, TV and DVD player. You are welcomed with a basket in the kitchen which contains various goodies, upon your arrival. You look out upon fields and beautiful countryside as you eat your breakfast and then you can open the doors into the patio area where you'll find chairs and a table and even a lantern if you wish to stay out after dark.
The washing machine and dryer and logs for the woodburner are located in a shed conveniently situated just a few feet away at the top of the garden. We didn't use the woodburner however, even in October, we were perfectly warm enough with the underfloor heating which is another little luxury of this cottage.
Upstairs you have the bathroom which is thoughtfully laid out and spacious and then the lovely little bedroom and in summer you can have the bedroom window open to let the breeze flow through. So all in all, we absolutely love this place, so much so that although we very highly recommend it, we don't want to because we want to very selfishly keep it all to ourselves! ;-)
