About the property

One bedroom cosy cottage for two by a Victorian walled garden and a beach

This cottage is tucked away within a large 500 acre country estate called Carreglwyd. Originally the gardener’s cottage, the cosy cottage has evolved to offer airy and bright cottage within peaceful surroundings, with a great view of the Victorian walled kitchen garden. A warm retreat for two, there are great woodland walks within the mature woodlands on offer within the Estate and a lake for coarse fishing (with prior consent via the owner). Just a 20 minutes walk over on over the estate land (or a five minute drive) is Borthwen Beach so that you can combine the quietness of the trees with the lull of the sea. Internally, the stairs are crafted from local wood and the kitchen is rustic with slate work tops and heated via a Rayburn range. The property has a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Upstairs is a large airy studio living area with open fire and views of the walled garden. There is a local shop and a great pub serving food in the village up the lane. Dogs are welcome at the cottage and at the pub!
