Top 5 Holiday Cottages with a Log FirePublished on 4 Dec 2023 by Gwion Llwyd
Shall we put another couple of logs on? From traditional inglenooks to wood burners, we’ve selected our top 5 cottages with log fires.
It’s got to be one of the highlights of the season – when the nights draw in and the nip in the air means we can finally light the wood burner. Winter has some perks after all.
As well as the obvious warming effects, a real fire is both mesmerising and deeply comforting. Gazing into a fire can lower blood pressure and induce a state of deep relaxation, even hypnosis. A log fire can bring us together. Or make a solitary evening-in feel less alone.
For all these reasons and more, we love a great holiday hideaway with a log fire. So, from handsome Welsh farmhouses, to beautifully remote barns, we’ve selected some of our favourite holiday cottages in North Wales with log fires.
Now we suggest you kick off your shoes, curl up on the sofa, and bookmark some of your favourites. We hope you enjoy looking around our top 5 cottages with log fires.
