The cottage has a sunny position a few yards from the sparkling waters of the River Vyrnwy. Situated by the Sculpture Park, it offers quiet, simple, yet luxurious accommodation. The Cottage has two bedrooms (one double, one twin) an upstairs bathroom with bath and separate power shower, a modern fitted kitchen with dining area and a cosy living room with inglenook fireplace and log burner. With slate floors downstairs and fully carpeted upstairs, the accommodation is comfortable and practical. It also has an excellent central heating system and constant hot water. There is a private parking area adjacent to the Cottage and a hillside garden. The wonderful vistas of Lake Vyrnwy are only a few minutes walk away and the Cottage stands at the hub of many marked footpaths. The world famous Lake Vyrnwy Hotel is a 10 minute walk away and boasts 5 Star cuisine and a friendly local pub with bar meals and excellent ales. Fishing on both river and lake is available from the hotel. The woodstove is set ready to light and there is a good supply of logs in the woodshed. There is a TV/DVD with a wide selection of channels, and a small library of books and games. Lake Vyrnwy is a lovely spot in any season and can be enjoyed all year round. Apart from 'no pets and no smoking' policies we operate a very relaxed approach towards dates, so that it can be booked for a week, a few days or an extended weekend. More
