One Bedroom Cottage on a Working Welsh Farm | Gegin-Faeldre
This pretty one bedroom cottage on a working welsh farm is a great base for couples wanting to explore the mountains and coast of Eryri (Snowdonia). This beautifully appointed and private annexe to the main farmhouse offers luxurious accommodation whilst providing a taste of idyllic rural life. But don’t worry, the owners won’t make you get up at the crack of dawn to feed the sheep. Unless you really want to of course.
We enter the cottage through a private front door to the north of the main farmhouse into a large entrance hall. A convenient ground floor wc with washbasin sits behind a lovely oak ledge and brace door right in front, but we turn left to enter the living room.
A big open plan space where the living room to the right is separated by rail and breakfast bar from the larger kitchen diner area. A large leather sofa and coffee table sits in front of a large wall mounted flat screen TV. A big Georgian style window in the wall fills this space with a lovely light from outside.
The richly coloured and warm oak floor stretches back through into the kitchen area. Here, a lovingly restored and original Aga cooking range takes pride of place. More modern kitchen units stretch out to the left and ensures that all the expected modern day appliances are also accommodated. A small round dining table and pastel coloured moulded plastic chairs sit on the rear wall.
An oak bannister and carpeted stairs leads us up to the double bedroom above. Here, a relaxing king sized bed sits under the eaves of the cottage. Exposed beams and a section of the original stone wall provides a sense of character and place and a large Velux window ensures that plenty of light floods the room each morning.
The adjoining bathroom adds the wow factor to this accommodation. A huge double shower with matching white porcelain bathroom set rests on a plush blue-slate floor. A large wall mirror behind the sink finishes the room off nicely.
