A rustic, slate-built holiday cottage tucked away in a courtyard garden in woodland setting, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the popular town of Corwen.
This characterful cottage is nestled in a shared garden alongside another holiday cottage, and looks out onto a picturesque lawn garden with a private seating area to enjoy the peaceful surroundings in full.
Many original features of this early 18th century former alms house are retained throughout, adding to the traditional feel of this family retreat.
Set over two floors, the ground floor consists of a well-furnished kitchen containing feature pieces like a traditional Belfast sink and Everhot electric cooker with social dining area for all the guests to relax over a casual evening meal.
The sitting room benefits from original sash windows that beautifully complement the woodburning stove set in an inglenook hearth as a centerpiece of the room.
The homely aura makes this a perfect place to sit and relax into the evening.
Upstairs the original wooden flooring continues the style of the house, leading into a spacious bathroom with cast iron roll top bath and separate shower cubicle, located next to the master bedroom, which includes a king-size bed.
At the other end of the landing is a family room with double bed and single bed, great for children and couples or a young family to share.
This superb grade 2 star listed building is ideal for a family holiday in the beautiful Welsh countryside.
