This traditional detached cottage is situated next to the owner’s home in the charming Shropshire village of Bronygarth.
Dating from the 17th century, this former gamekeeper’s cottage mixes traditional features with modern luxuries.
Step into the hallway and you will immediately be impressed by the style and quality of the cottage.
Low ceilings and doorways in some areas.
To the right is the kitchen with the original quarry tile floor and modern appliances where you can rustle up a tasty meal.
From here, you can access the utility room which leads into a charming single bedroom, a great hideaway from the rest of the house.
Across the hallway is the comfy sitting room which features low wooden beams and a large woodburning stove which is guaranteed to keep you warm, whatever the weather is doing outside.
From the sitting room, stairs lead up to two first floor bedrooms, both with decorative fireplaces, with the master room also boasting an en-suite shower room.
At the rear of the cottage are beautifully manicured lawned gardens, with a patio area where you can sit with a morning coffee as you plan the day’s adventures.
Bronygarth is a small village in the Ceiriog Valley on the border of Shropshire and North Wales.
Just a few minutes’ drive is the popular town of Chirk, with a wide range of shops and pubs, as well as the National Trust owned Chirk Castle, a magnificent medieval castle which will provide a magical day out for all ages, and which can be seen from the cottage.
With easy access to the watersports centres of Llangollen and Bala, and further on to the Snowdonia National Park, you are ideally placed for an adrenaline-fuelled holiday.
However, if you fancy a more genteel pace to your holiday, visit nearby Erddig, another superb NT property, or the fabulous city of Chester with its Roman Walls and Amphitheatre, Chester Zoo, and the superb Roodee racecourse.
A wonderful cottage for a relaxing break in beautiful countryside.
