The self catering holiday accommodation has been built to very high, green, standards, with excellent insulation and fittings.

The beautiful oak floors of the first floor lounge and bedroom are heated by solar-heated, underfloor heating. There is also a wood burner with logs supplied. The lounge has French windows opening onto a Juliet balcony, looking up through the oak woods to the summit of Carn Gafallt.  It has free-sat TV incorporating radio and DVD player and a CD player.

The spacious bedroom has a very comfortable 5′ bed, while there is also a sofa/bed in the lounge which easily converts to a 4’6” double bed, a mattress pad is provided for extra comfort. Linen and towels are provided and a hair-dryer is available.

The country-style kitchen has a comprehensive range of equipment including microwave, oven and hob, plus fridge, lots of workspace and all the little touches to create a real home from home.  The cost of electricity is included in the rental cost.

The negatives: no pets, other than guide dogs, no smoking, and, at the moment, we have limited mobile reception.
