Holiday Rental House
A very warm welcome to Isfryn from your hosts Steve and Linda. Isfryn forms a completely self-contained property sleeping 2 adults, separated by 3ft thick walls of slate from Ty Hebron, the adjoining former Methodist chapel, which is now our home. Isfryn was built in the 1870s as a home for the chapel minister. We bought it in June 2015. It has been newly renovated over the past 6 months and we were delighted to open it for visitors in Spring 2016. Renovating this cottage has been a very happy experience, which we hope is reflected in its cheerful and welcoming interior. It offers cosy and comfortable accommodation for two adults. To make you feel at home from the moment you arrive, you will be greeted by a welcome basket of goodies, many of which will be home-made by us.

Isfryn forms a completely self-contained property sleeping 2 adults, separated by 3ft thick walls of slate from Ty Hebron, the adjoining former Methodist chapel, which is now our home. Isfryn was built in the 1870s as a home for the chapel minister. We bought it in June 2015. It has been newly renovated over the past 6 months and we were delighted to open it for visitors in Spring 2016. Renovating this cottage has been a very happy experience, which we hope is reflected in its cheerful and welcoming interior. It offers cosy and comfortable accommodation for two adults. To make you feel at home from the moment you arrive, you will be greeted by a welcome basket of goodies, many of which will be home-made by us. In the living room, the most prominent feature is an open hearth with hearth stones of beautiful local slate, which connects this room with the dining room beyond. It contains a double sided wood burner, so you don’t need to leave your warm and cosy fire behind when you go to eat at the table! The living room has two comfortable two seater sofas, satellite TV, free WiFi, DVD player, a selection of DVDs and well stocked book shelves. In the bureau, you will find a variety of games, so in the event of inclement weather, you can settle comfortably indoors and be well entertained. As with the rest of the house, the walls are decorated with original prints, many by local artists. In the living room, you will find two USB charging sockets so that you can conveniently charge up any electronic items. The dining room furniture, which dates from the mid 1800s, was bought by Linda with money left to her by her grandmother and was used in her own house for many years. We are delighted to share it with you now and hope you enjoy the presence of furniture appropriate to the age of the cottage. The table comfortably seats four adults. If you like music to dine by, you will find a CD player and a variety of CDs on the buffet stand. We have tried to make maximum use of the space in Isfryn to offer you everything you need for your holiday. In the cupboard under the stairs you will find a washer/dryer, washing liquid and fabric conditioner, a table top dishwasher, dishwashing tablets, an iron and a table top ironing board. The newly fitted kitchen has an induction hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge with a small freezer compartment and a kettle. You’ll find the basics like sugar, cooking oil, salt and pepper, cling film and foil waiting for you. (Tea and coffee as well as some fresh milk and butter will be provided in your welcome pack.) A rear porch completes the ground floor and offers coat hooks and a boot rack for muddy or wet footwear. Upstairs, the bedroom contains a super-comfy, super-king sized bed which can be converted to twin beds if desired. There is a charming, up-cycled wardrobe dating from the era when it was felt useful to have shelves labelled to tell you where to keep your socks and underwear! In the bedside table drawers, you will find a hairdryer, and a cooling mat in case you bring your straighteners. There is another well-stocked book shelf to make sure you can read yourself into a peaceful sleep. The large landing houses a big day-bed, which acts as a sofa giving you an additional sitting room. Yet another bookshelf ensures that passing comfortable afternoons curled up on the day bed lost in a good book, or reading yourself into a comfortable doze is also an option here. The newly fitted bathroom has a large, walk in shower with both drench and hand held shower heads, a toilet, a heated towel rail, an illuminated mirror with shaving point and a magnifying mirror. You will find basics such as cotton wool, cotton buds and tissues provided for you. We provide all bed linen, a choice of pillows, towels, tea towels and waffle-weave bathrobes for your comfort. All utilities are included. We provide you with two baskets of logs for the wood burner and you will be able to purchase further bags from us if you need them. Christmas and New Year Packages 2018 Our Christmas Package includes: a real Christmas tree with lights and decorations, tasteful decorations in the living and dining rooms, a bottle of champagne, home made chocolate truffles, a Christmas themed Welcome Basket in addition to all of the goodies we usually give to our guests, and a home made, iced Christmas fruit cake made with butter and brandy. Our New year Package includes a bottle of champagne, a bottle of Port, home made chocolate truffles, and a special Welcome Basket with extra foodie treats to help you celebrate in style as in addition to the usual Welcome Basket that we give to all of our guests. Either package can be booked for a minimum of four nights between 23rd December and 3rd January.More

About the neighbourhood
Aberangell and the surroundings are part of the Unesco Dyfi Biosphere on account of the unique landscape, wildlife and culture of the area. There are hills, mountains and valleys aplenty to walk, the beaches of Tywyn and Barmouth (to mention just a couple) are nearby. t's a lovely area, and much quieter and less-discovered than the Snowdon area to the North.
