Traditional Gatehouse Overlooking Green Fields And The River Dee | Gatehouse-Lodge
This traditional gatehouse overlooking green fields and the River Dee is part of a large private estate near Bala in North Wales. Spacious but cosy, private, and full of character, it sleeps up to two guests in one double bedroom. It is ideal for a romantic holiday getaway.
It couldn’t be more picture perfect. You’ll find the Gatehouse on a quiet backroad between Corwen and Bala in north east Wales. It is a delightful half-timbered detached cottage, with some seriously beautiful landscapes on the doorstep. The setting is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Berwyn mountains – which run from Llangollen in the north, down to Bala in the west and Oswestry in the south – stretch out beyond the river before it. The location is ideal if you are looking for a rural holiday that is slightly off the beaten track.
Open the front door into this traditional gatehouse overlooking green fields and the River Dee and you’ll find a spacious sitting room with lovely deep sofas arranged around a warm wood burning stove. The colours are muted, the cushions are plump. It’s a supremely cosy set up. From there, walk through into a separate dining room, with a dining table to seat four and a lovely Welsh dresser.
The kitchen is at the back of the cottage, beyond the dining room. Recently renovated, it has lovely shaker style cupboards and oak top work surfaces. There is an electric hob and oven, and plenty of storage space. The kitchen is well fitted out with all the pots, pans and utensils you would expect, and more. There is a handy breakfast bar, and the far-reaching countryside views from the kitchen windows are just beautiful.
Upstairs, there is one large double bedroom with a very comfortable super king bed. It is beautifully presented and very restful, and it comes with far-reaching views across the countryside. There is a fabulous large bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath and walk in shower.
