Three lovely double rooms are located on the first floor and share access to a spacious family bathroom, where you can enjoy a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the roll-top bath.
At the front of the cottage, there is an enclosed terrace with furniture to sit out on and enjoy the views of the valley, or just a few doors down sits Dyffryn Arms.
