Description

Experience 5-star comfort at this wonderful retreat in West Wales countryside. With a private hot tub, woodburner, ensuite bedrooms and plenty of style inside and out, there are many reasons why guests choose to return to this cottage time and time again. Set within 3.5 acres of grounds, separate and secluded from the owners' house, it enjoys its own enclosed, tranquil garden (ideal for children and dogs). Walking distance to the village pub, cafe and small shop at Pont-rhyd-y-groes.

You might also recognise some scenes from the Hinterland series as you explore the area.
